The actor discussed his directorial debut on 1:30 Train as well as the "little break" when he has finished his run as Captain America.
"I think when I'm done with this Marvel contract, I'll take a little break from acting," he told Glamour.
"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.
"This process [directing], you're involved in every single decision. If I hadn't done it, I'd be really kicking myself. At the time, it was a daunting task for a number of reasons, but in hindsight it was the right move."
Evans will reprise his role as Steve Rogers for the third time in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which will arrive in UK cinemas on March 28 and in the US on April 4.
