Which co-star would you love to work with again?
Chris Evans: “Let’s not base it on acting ability, because that’s impossible, I’ve worked with so many good…phenomenal actors. It’s a blessing to share the screen with them. Let’s go just based on personality and who I got along with, which I guess is probably just as damning. I’m going to say Ioan Gruffudd, the guy who actually played Mr. Fantastic. He’s just hilarious. I’ve never worked with someone…he’s a big kid. He really is like a nine year old, but he’s very positive, very sharp, very funny, and we had very similar senses of humor. He was so much fun, and I did get to work with him again. I worked with him last year in a movie called A Many Splintered Thing. He had a small role, but I got a couple days on set with him. I laughed the whole time.”

What is favorite part of being the Captain America?
Chris Evans: “The best part of being a part of the Marvel world is that it allows you to do other things. If I hadn’t taken Captain America, I don’t think I would be able to direct. Doing those big movies with big profile properties, and movies that get seen and make a lot of money, in turn you’re afforded an opportunity to go do passion projects, but that’s not a very fun answer. What’s the best part of being Captain America? I really like playing a good superhero, a lot of superheroes…not that there are bad superheroes, but a lot of superheroes are tortured souls and they have demons they are fighting. Caps just a really good guy. Aside from being a superhero and having powers, he’s just a really good man.”

Who is your favorite Avenger besides Captain America? Mine’s Iron Man, because duh, Robert Downey Jr.!
Chris Evans: “I’m going to have to agree with you. Robert Downey Jr. is not only an incredible cool superhero as Iron Man, but he himself is really just a special person. He’s just one of these guys whose been through so much and is so experienced and knows so much. He just knows so much. The guy has been through everything, and he’s come out on top. He’s just one of the biggests forces of nature on the planet and deservedly so. He’s an amazing person.”

What’s it like being part of something so big like The Avengers?
Chris Evans: “Intimidating, a little overwhelming, but you’re overwhelmed with gratitude. When you’re making it you don’t really know it’s going to be that big…even when it comes out, this is the tricky part this business, you forget what’s really happening, it’s like work. I don’t know how to explain it. I try to think about what I would have thought when I was eighteen before I started this career, and I think it would have been radically different, but over time the more movies you make and the more you get used to the routine of movies coming out, doing the press, and you move on and try to get another job, and it all become just a piece in this puzzle of work and kind of…not disillusion, I don’t want to say disillusion, because it’s still very amazing, maybe just a little desensitized. You’re still grateful, but you’re not just sitting there like, ‘Wow, look at this, look what I was a part of.’ It doesn’t always feel that way, which is a shame, because it should. And I think that’s part of what I try remind myself of…not that I was a part of something amazing, but just to be appreciative and grateful, because gratitude is the key to happiness. If you have a healthy understanding of gratitude, you can’t lose.”

Will you miss the Cap/Peggy relationship?
Chris Evans: “Of course, mainly because of Hayley Atwell, she’s phenomenal. She’s just an amazing, amazing actress and an amazing human being, sharing the screen with her is just a blessing.”

*SPOILERS*




Apparently Chris Evans is no longer Captain American at the end of Captain America 2.



*SPOILERS*
GetsugaTensho22 - 8/21/2013, 7:47 PM
Awesome guy and great answers, but those are the shittiest questions known to man. Who the hell interviewed and wasted his time?
MrHulkSmashin - 8/21/2013, 7:52 PM
@Rockteur come on, you knew people would come down here. Why would you tell us?
CoulsonLives - 8/21/2013, 7:59 PM
WHY DIDN'T THE INTERVIEWER ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PLOT??? -_-

@Rockteur does he blow up his shield at the end? ;)
Rockteur - 8/21/2013, 8:20 PM
@MrReese

I guess we'll find out.
Rockteur - 8/21/2013, 8:20 PM
@Nomis

You forgot Scott Pilgrim, but good list!
TheBlackNerd - 8/21/2013, 8:25 PM
I think we all pretty much assumed that spoiler though. I just kept thinking of in the comics when you know who had it coming.

However Sebastian Stan has signed for numerous pictures so who's to say he won't don the suit and Shield someday...

MrCBM56 - 8/21/2013, 8:28 PM
Rocketeue

It's already been confirmed he will return as CAPTAIN AMERICA so I think that's fake.
TheBlackNerd - 8/21/2013, 8:30 PM
@Rockteur

But then again that was pretty f***'ed up that you posted that here when you scroll down you miss all the *Warning Spoiler* jibber jab.

I think you wanted everyone else to share the same feeling as you that you ruined the film for yourself. lol

@Rocketeue

I pray that you're right my brotha! (Prayer hands)
MrCBM56 - 8/21/2013, 8:35 PM
Guys that "spoiler" is fake. Chris Evans has been confirmed to reprise his role as CAPTAIN AMERICA. He won't die, he won't give up being him. At Comic Con this year, when asked about the newly announced Age of Ultron, he stated that they start filming in march and that he had some homework to do. Even if he isn't captain america at the end of The Winter solider, it's basically confirmed he will return as Captain america in A2. No need to worry.

"Mine’s Iron Man, because duh, Robert Downey Jr.!"

Someone actually said this in an interview?
SnapperCarr - 8/21/2013, 10:25 PM
I don't think Cap will be gone.
Orphix - 8/22/2013, 12:16 AM
Regardless whether the rumour about Cap is true or not it does seem that all the major heroes out of the Avengers are going into semi-retirement in one form or another.

What we've seen with Stark, what Thor is going to go through and now with these rumour circulating about Rogers it seems that there will be a sense of 'getting the band back together' in A:AoU. It will be interesting to see if Black Widow will go into some form of retirement too. And would that mean that Hawkeye is the one who has to get them all back on board?
Starkasm - 8/22/2013, 1:27 AM
Lol @ the people who thought Roxkteur was serious.
StrangerX - 8/22/2013, 2:16 AM
To be honest I don't mind the idea of him getting capped* by Crossbones.
jlabatman - 8/22/2013, 1:08 PM
Good article abary!
BlanketMan - 8/22/2013, 1:29 PM
@Nomis: Days of Future Past will be Hugh Jackman's 7th appearance in a comic book movie, all as Wolverine.
EpitomeofAwesome - 8/22/2013, 1:35 PM
@Rockteur Yeah, that's fake. And don't post spoilers like that on here, or somone will most likely report you. Just warning you:)
TruBeliever - 8/22/2013, 1:58 PM
@Rockteur

That link is foreshadowing that Winter Soldier may or may not take up the mantle of Captain America.
Chris Evans signed a 6 picture deal, Steve Rogers isn't going anywhere are you DAFT MAN!
caroldanvers - 8/22/2013, 2:16 PM
didn't bucky and steve co-exist both as captain america at some point? or is my mind just playing tricks? because i remember a panel where they're both training both with similar suits and whatever, but i might be wrong.

still, the "rumor" could easily be true AND still keep steve as captain america. just pull him onto a parallel universe or something like that and have bucky taking on cap until wanda and her magic powers~ bring steve back. so he doesn't actually die AND they give sw a bigger role for avengers 2. i guess?
TruePunishment - 8/22/2013, 2:17 PM
What craptastic questions to ask...
wcwpoet - 8/22/2013, 2:32 PM
I was surprised at how much I loved The First Avenger. I'm really looking forward to CA:TWS
BIGBMH - 8/22/2013, 3:35 PM
@Nomis and Rockteur,

He also voiced Casey Jones in 2007's TMNT.
ALF9001 - 8/22/2013, 3:49 PM
Chris evans:

thewonderer - 8/22/2013, 4:30 PM
"Mine’s Iron Man, because duh, Robert Downey Jr.!"

Why would anyone say this? Idiotic.

That's like going to Idris Elba, "Who's your favorite black person?, Mine's Morgan Freeman because duh, black!"
CaptainObvious - 8/22/2013, 4:33 PM
Chris Evans was one of the only good things about those terrible Fantastic Four movies.
siggisuperman - 8/22/2013, 5:06 PM
Who the frick wouldn't miss working with Hayley Atwell she is a bombshell...
Tromills - 8/23/2013, 4:38 AM
