Chris Evans is ready to hang up his superhero cape. The 32-year-old actor recently revealed in an interview with Glamour that he has plans to take a break from the business.

"I think when I'm done with this Marvel contract, I'll take a little break from acting," Evans, who stars as Captain America in Marvel's films, told the publication. "With acting, you're one piece in a very big puzzle. It's like you helped buy a gift but you don't know what the gift is, so you come back and see the movie. Sometimes it's nice, sometimes it's tragic."

It's no surprise Evans is ready for some time off after his contract with Marvel had him playing Captain America year after year. He first picked up the role for 2011's "Captain America: The First Avenger," going on to appear as the patriotic hero in "The Avengers" and "Thor: The Dark World." Evan's latest effort as the character, in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," will hit theaters on April 4.

The award-winning actor has voiced his concerns about the lifestyle changes that come with the Marvel films in the past. "When the movie comes out, there’s going to be a surge. And there’s going to be some changes, but then it’s going to go away. It’s going to die back down," Evans told Slashfilm earlier this year. "It’s not like once these movies are out, your life is forfeit, and you can’t have any more control. So you’ve just got to take those periods of time in stride, and it will pass."
