Evans has been very open about the fact that he suffers from anxiety and has difficulty handling the public aspects of promoting blockbuster studio movies. He was reluctant to take the role for that reason and because he didn't want the loss of privacy that comes from becoming well known. It's one of those situations where the work itself suits him fine, but all the crap that goes along with it is the problem. Most people can understand that very well.
