Chris Evans says that it was a little 'daunting' when he read the Captain America script for the first time and saw what the directors were trying to achieve.

Evans is set to return to the role of Captain America for the third standalone film for the popular character... and it looks on course to be the biggest Marvel film yet.

And while Evans was daunted when he read the script for the first time, he was confident that Marvel would pull off what they had set out to achieve with this film.

Speaking to Collider, the actor said: "It is obviously daunting when you see how much they are trying to accomplish and you see plots they are trying to navigate. But, if there is anything that I have learnt from Marvel, it is that they can handle it."

Civil War sees Evans reunite with filmmaker Anthony and Joe Russo, who brought The Winter Solider to the big screen two years ago. The duo is set to take up the director's chair on Avengers: Infinity War later this year.

The movie also sees Evans star alongside Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, and Sebastian Stan in a Captain America film once more. Robert Downey Jr is the big new addition as he reprises the role of Tony Stark for the first time since Avengers: Age of Ultron last year.

But what about Evans' future at Marvel? We know that he is coming to the end of his contract and he reveals that he is willing to do whatever Marvel needs him to do for this character.

He continued: "There's no re-upping yet. I was just saying in my last interview, it is so funny thinking about how fast time has moved; we started this in 2010 and six years have gone in the blink of an eye. In the beginning, it was so terrifying and now I am scared to walk away and I am scared to not have one of these coming. It has been wonderful especially because the movies have been so good. When you make good movies, who wants to stop doing that?

"We will see. I know in the comic books, the shield gets passed off. What you do know when being in this process, meeting the fans, experiencing these junkets, and meeting people who love the character, the character is bigger than you and whatever the character needs and whatever Marvel needs for that, I am willing to do. If that is me passing it off, I will pass it off. If they want to make more, I am ready."

Captain America: Civil War is already winning over the critics and looks set to be another huge hit for Marvel... will it be the first Captain America movie to gross over $1 billion? I guess we are going to have to wait and see.

Captain America: Civil War is released 29th April.
