After starring alongside Ryan Gosling in The Gray Man this summer, Chris Evans is ready to continue working with Netflix. The longtime Marvel Cinematic Universe star is moving forward with her post-Captain America career, and Netflix appears to be a big part of it. This week, Chris Evans joined another big Netflix movie, this time with Edge of Tomorrow and A Quiet Place star Emily Blunt.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Evans has teamed up with Blunt in the new Netflix movie Pain Hustlers. Netflix took over Pain Hustlers at Cannes earlier this year, with Blunt and Harry Potter director David Yates already attached. The film tells about Lisa (Blunt), a woman who has failed to realize herself and is also in financial difficulties. Liza also has a young daughter to look after but her turning point comes when she arrives at a pharmaceutical start-up which in a short time, thanks to her intelligence and her charisma, climbs positions and leads her to an important economic position . But at what price? As the company begins to take off, those involved become entangled in a criminal conspiracy. There are still no details on Evans’ character in Pain Hustlers. In The Gray Man, however, he will play a sociopathic villain, a far cry from Captain America.
Chris Evans talks about the Human Torch
We recall that recently Chris Evans has declared that he would like to play the role of the Human Torch: “Wouldn’t that be great? No, no one has ever come to me about this. I mean, I don’t look exactly the same anymore. It was 15, almost 20 years ago. Oh my God, I’m old. But I really love that character, but I think… aren’t they doing something now with the Fantastic Four?”
Chris Evans he then added: “I would like. That would actually be easier for me than coming back as Captain America. Do you understand what I mean? Cap is so precious to me. And you know, I almost don’t want to interrupt what a great experience that was. But Johnny Storm, I feel like he really hasn’t had his day. This was before Marvel really found its footing. So, I loved that role and, you know, who knows?”
