While his fans are thrilled, it’s his mom that may be the most pleased by the news.

Here’s a look back at Chris Evans’ small beginnings on the silver screen, and his meteoric rise to fame in recent years.

Chris Evans’ Movies

While Evans catapulted to stardom as Captain America, a key role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he has been acting professionally for nearly 25 years and has more than 45 acting credits to his name.

His first big break came in 2000 when he landed the part of Cary Baston in the television series “Opposite Sex.” He scored numerous small roles in the following years, guest starring on shows like “The Fugitive,” “Boston Public” and “Skin.”

Eventually, Evans transitioned to the silver screen, appearing in films like “Not Another Teen Movie” and “Cellular.” In 2005, he got his first taste of life as a superhero playing Johnny Storm in “Fantastic Four,” a role he reprised in the 2007 sequel, “Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer.”

Although the actor has made a fortune from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he has also expressed interest in spending time behind the camera. In 2015, he made his directorial debut with the film “Before We Go” — which he also starred in.

Evans also has the distinction, along with actor Ryan Gosling, of starring in the upcoming Netflix original, “The Gray Man.” The movie is slated to be released on July 15 in theaters and on Netflix on July 22. It’s rumored to be Netflix’s most expensive original production yet, with a budget of $200 million.

Chris Evans as Captain America

Evans’ net worth soared since his 2011 debut as the title character in “Captain America: The First Avenger.” Marvel reportedly paid him $300,000 for his work on the first film. One year later, he received a $2 million payday for his role in “The Avengers,” according to celebrity gossip website Xfinity Entertainment.

For the 2015 sequel “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Evans more than tripled his salary, earning $6.9 million, reported entertainment website CinemaBlend. And IndieWire.com reported that he earned $15 million for “Avengers: Endgame,” which currently stands as one of the highest-grossing movies of all time.

While he hung up his Captain America suit after “Endgame,” he said returning to the franchise would be difficult but didn’t rule it out. “I don’t want to disappoint anybody but it’s tough to. …It was such a good run and I’m so happy with it,” Evans told Comic Book in June. “It’s so precious to me. It would have to be perfect. It just would be scary to rattle something that is, again, so, so dear to me. That role means so much to me. So, to revisit it, it would be a tall order.”
