From The Matt Damon-Led Bourne Series To La La Land & The Oscar-Winning Milk, Captain America Could Have Starred In These Memorable Films

6 Movies Chris Evans Rejected (Image Credit: IMDb)

In the Hollywood Hills, where scripts flutter around like autumn leaves in Vermont, there is a fair share of “What if?” moments.

With a chiseled jawline that could cut glass and a career trajectory that’s more Captain America than Johnny Storm, Evans has made some calculated moves … and some polite passes on projects that have risen without it. We jump into the many cinematics where Chris says, “I can do this all day,” and the ones where he decides to hang up the shield.

The Bourne series

Imagine, if you will, a world where Matt Damon didn’t say, “I’m Jason Bourne.” That’s right, Evans was considered for the role of the amnesiac a**-kicker, but ultimately passed. The result? A franchise so successful it made people forget that Damon was ever Will Hunting. Meanwhile, Evans is probably unfazed, practicing shield throws in his backyard.

Before Sean Penn stepped into Harvey Milk’s shoes, whisper Chris Evans was wearing the mantle of the activist. Penn won an Oscar, and Evans probably took the Marvel money and thought having at least one Harvey in his life (his dog) was enough of a reward.

Could it be Chris Dunne, the wonderfully flawed husband in “Gone Girl”? Maybe. But he succeeded, and Ben Affleck stepped in to show off that smoldering “maybe I’m a sociopath” look. Evans must have been too busy being everyone’s best friend … or maybe he just didn’t want to compete with another Affleck for the title of “Boston’s Best.”

This heartbreaking story was almost within the reach of our dear Christ. But he decided not to go down the path of soul-crushing drama. Casey Affleck took the role and Oscar, leaving Chris Evans to his lighter ventures – like saving the world from aliens and rogue AI.

La La Land

Yes, you could have seen Evans jazz his way across the screen with Emma Stone, but he did not succeed in “La La Land”. Ryan Gosling came in, and the rest is tap-dancing history. Don’t worry, though—Evans definitely sings show tunes for his dog, which is pretty much the same.

Before Orlando Bloom became the king of queer romances with “Elizabethtown,” Evans was in the running. He refused, perhaps because of a premonition of the film’s lukewarm reception. Or maybe he knew deep down that making a movie about shoes wasn’t appropriate.

So what can we glean from the roles that Chris “Charmquake” Evans turned down? Well, for starters, he has a knack for leaving a void for the next hit. But honestly, would we trade his tenure as America’s quarterback – I mean, America’s hero – for any of these? suspicious. Every “no” seems to lead to a “yes” from Evans who shapes his star-studded career in ways that make us cringe.
