The movie, which currently holds a 26 percent rating from critics and a 55 percent rating from the audience on Rotten Tomatoes, did not receive the best reviews. Evans pondered whether audiences may have "outgrown those types of films," he shared in a recent interview with GQ. This conversation took place before the Hollywood actors went on strike.

Ghosted, released on Apple TV+ in April, follows the story of Cole (played by Evans) who chases after Sadie (played by Ana de Armas) to London after she ghosts him following a date. This leads to the revelation that she is actually a C.I.A. agent, and the two find themselves on a thrilling adventure together.

Evans expressed his nostalgia for the type of film that Ghosted represents, saying, "Ghosted, to me, felt like a movie that I grew up on, a movie that maybe we don’t see very much anymore." He further discussed the question of audience interest in such films, acknowledging mixed reviews from critics but believing that there is still an appetite among viewers if executed properly.

While the response to Ghosted may not have been entirely positive, Evans has exciting projects on the horizon. He teased his upcoming films, Pain Hustlers, where he stars alongside Emily Blunt, and Red One, a holiday action-comedy with Dwayne Johnson.

Reflecting on his work on Ghosted, Evans highlighted the dynamic between himself and de Armas on-screen. The actors, who previously worked together in Knives Out, showcased a different side of their relationship through Ghosted. De Armas joked about finally getting to "like each other" on-screen, while Evans emphasized the fun they had exploring a more banter-filled dynamic in the film.

Overall, Evans and de Armas enjoyed the opportunity to play against type in Ghosted. De Armas found it refreshing to see Evans in a vulnerable and less heroic role, while Evans appreciated the chance to showcase a more relatable and human side of his character. They both agreed that these elements added humor and depth to the film, making it an enjoyable experience for both them and the audience.
