Chris Evans Says He’s Open To Returning As Human Torch


With the MCU’s version of Captan America no longer being the traditional Steve Rogers version it’s very unlikely we will ever see Chris Evans’ version of the character again. Sam Wilson version from The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will seemingly be the main version going forward.

However, thanks to the concept of the Multiverse being introduced we have seen past versions of other characters appear in the MCU. Patrick Stewart’s version of Professor X from the 20th Century Fox X-Men films and both the Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield versions of Spider-Man the possibilities seem almost endless.

In a recent interview MTV News the idea of returning to the MCU as his old version of the Human Torch from the 2005 version of the Fantastic Four was brought up. His response was:

God, wouldn’t that be great? No one’s ever come from Marvel to me about that. 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?

I mean, I guess all bets are off. Look, I would love it. I would love it. That would actually be an easier sell to me than coming back as Cap. Cap is so precious to me. And you know, I almost don’t want to 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.”

Marvel is currently planning a new version of the iconic hero family with John Krasinski said to be playing the role of Mr. Fantastic. The original Android version of the Human Torch was teased in Captain America: The First Avenger, so we’ll see if that goes anywhere.

Do you think Chris Evan’s Human Torch should make a return?
