Captain America is no stranger to a tour of duty, and he's got two big wars planned for 2015 and 2016.

In an interview with Esquire, actor Chris Evans revealed his Marvel plans for the next two years -- including a nine-month back-to-back shoot for for two-part Avengers: Infinity War. Evans begins shooting Captain America: Civil War in May, but that movie pales in comparison to the next Avengers installment.

"You know, you plan around the Marvel responsibilities. You have to. We start [Captain America: Civil War] in a couple weeks, and then that shoots until August or something like that. August or September. Then I've got some downtime and I can do with it as I please," says Evans. " I don't know if I want to take time off or go pursue another directing job or find a movie to act in or, you know, do whatever I'm creatively inclined to pursue or wait, relax, enjoy my life. And then we start [Avengers: Infinity War], I think, some time in the third quarter. Fall or winter of 2016. That's going to be like nine months to shoot both movies back to back."

All three films will be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, and will feature virtually all of the Avengers team -- even for Captain America: Civil War. Captain America: Civil War is scheduled to be released May 6, 2016. Avengers: Infinity War will be released in two parts, on May 4, 2018 and and May 3, 2019.
