Since his days on The Office, John Krasinski has become a comedic favorite of American audiences, and many Marvel fans likely remember that he was, at one point, in the running for the role of Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger.

In an interview with Collider to promote his upcoming film, The Hollars, for which he both stars in and directs, Krasinski detailed his feelings toward Chris Evans‘ casting as Captain America.

I just happened to watch Captain America: Civil War, and first of all I’m so glad I didn’t get Captain America when you see Chris do it because he’s fantastic at it.

Krasinski continued to praise Evan’s performance, even claiming that “He is Captain America!” Krasinski also sang praise for Guardians of the Galaxy, calling it “one of the best ones,” as well as for the Marvel Cinematic Universe in general.

They seem to have figured it out that your audience is only gonna keep coming back if you deliver them quality. I think Guardians of the Galaxy was the best example of that because, to me at least, that was the one that everybody felt like “Oh how could they make this work? How could it be good?” and then it ended up being one of the best ones, I think.

When asked about whether or not Krasinski would join the Marvel realm, his reply was, as many fans have hoped, enthusiastic:

My whole thing is I’m such a huge fan of the Marvel movies, so if there are any characters left for sure, bang the drum (laughs). Just to be in that world, they’re really well-made and they seem like they’re having a lot of fun and I happen to be friends with a whole bunch of those guys and girls, so to me, it would be a great time, I’d love it.
