Chris Evans revealed he is more than open to returning as Johnny Storm/Human Torch in Fantastic Four — and that it will be “an easier sell” to him than Captain America.

Speaking to MTV News, the actor shared that he was never approached to do another film despite his eagerness to. “God, wouldn’t that be great?” he replied. “Wouldn’t that be great? No, no one’s ever come to me about that.” Evans stated the fact that it’s been more than 15 years since he first put on the suit and that John Krasinski recently took up the mantle, “I mean, I don’t exactly look the same anymore. That 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 Fantastic Four?”

Evans also acknowledged that there are still variants of Johnny Storm in the Multiverse, responding that “all bets are off” at this point. “Look, I would love it,” he continued. “I would love it. That would actually be an easier sell to me than coming back as Cap. You know what I mean? Cap is so precious to me. And you know, I almost don’t wanna disrupt what a beautiful experience that was. But Johnny Storm, I feel like he didn’t really get his day. That was before Marvel really found its footing. So, I loved that role and, you know, who knows?”

Elsewhere in entertainment, Woody Harrelson thinks Jack Harlow’s White Men Can’t Jump reboot will be better than his original.
