Los Angeles: Chris Evans plans to retire from acting after his six films deal is over with Marvel to focus on directing.

The actor, who suits up again for 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', first starred as the shielded superhero in 2010, has so far completed three films including 'The Avengers'.

He will begin shooting for the second part of mega-buck franchise again after the release of 'Winter Soldier.

The 32-year-old actor made his directorial debut with a low-budget, intimate love story titled '1:30 Train' and in an interview to Variety magazine, Evans revealed a desire to follow direction seriously.

"I've known for a while I wanted to direct. But (time) never really opens up. There's another movie to do, there's another acting job. It just got to a point where I was like, you know what - I have to do this," Evans said.

"If I'm acting at all, it's going to be under Marvel contract, or I'm going to be directing. I can't see myself pursuing acting strictly outside of what I'm contractually obligated to do," he said.
