Avengers: Endgame may mark the end of Chris Evan's portrayal of Steve Rogers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the actor is open to future projects -- especially a buddy cop movie with Golden Girls star Betty White, who celebrated her 97th birthday on Thursday.
On White's birthday, a fan shared a photo from the 2015 People’s Choice Awards, where Evans helped White on stage after she won an award, and explained her vision of a buddy cop movie starring the odd couple. Eventually, Evans himself responded to it, saying he would only do it on one condition: if he got to play the voice of reason while White was the dangerous wild card, a type of chemistry typical to movies of that genre.
As long as I’m the pragmatic voice of reason and she’s the hotheaded wildcard. https://t.co/GvUIi9ci1I— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) January 17, 2019
Naturally, fans of both actors loved this idea.
