Oh my God, I’m old.” Chris – while stating that he loves the character, said, “but I think… aren’t they doing something now with Fantastic Four?”
In the same conversation, the Marvel star spoke about why returning as the super-human Johnny Storm was better for him than as MCU’s Steve Rogers. The actor said, “I would love it. 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. 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.”
Talking about Chris Evans and his part as the Human Torch aka Johnny Storm, the actor played the character in two films Fantastic Four (2005) and its sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007). After Evans, Johnny’s character was brought to life on the silver screen by Michael B. Jordan in the 2015 film Fantastic Four.
