Chris Evans Discusses The Avengers And Gives A Brief Update On The Captain America Sequel
Chris Evans provides a brief update on the Captain America sequel, his experience filming The Avengers, and what currently has Marvel's attention.
Here are a few excerpts from an interview Chris Evans did with Red Eye Chicago where he discusses standing next to Chris Hemsworth, the Captain America sequel and fanboy pressure:
You got in great shape for “Captain America,” but do you feel smaller when standing next to Thor/Chris Hemsworth for “The Avengers”?
Oh, yeah, he’s a big dude, man. He’s a big guy.
What’s that like when you spend all that time pumping up and then you go stand next to him?
Well, that’s the way it’s supposed to be. He is a God.
And Captain America’s just an average dude?
How are things going with “The Avengers”? I feel like it would be like hanging out at the All-Star game.
Yeah, it was great. It was a great experience … It couldn’t have gone better. I almost should knock on some wood. It was too good. We all got along so ridiculously well; that type of stuff doesn’t happen in films. It’s just so lucky for a franchise that it happened on a film that we’re all going to be stuck together for quite some time.
What talk has there been lately of the Captain American sequels? When are those starting, and what’s something you’d like to see for those?
The sequels probably won’t start ‘til late next year, so they’re still working on the script. They really haven’t told me much. They’ve got their hands full right now with the third “Iron Man” and trying to get “The Avengers” out.
What’s the challenge of one-upping a good movie like “Captain America” with “The Avengers” and the “Captain America” sequel?
It’s just making sure the fans stay loyal. The comic book fans are pretty harsh and aggressive, and they know what they like and they know what they want, and trying to keep them happy is important. They’re the reason we’re making these movies. So the challenge is always making sure that the die-hard comic book fans are satisfied.
How do you know when they’re satisfied?
Well, you don’t. You just gotta hope. That’s the gamble.
What’s the most memorable reaction you’ve had from someone since you’ve been “Captain America”?
Nothing too crazy. People are pretty respectful. “Hello. Can I take a picture? Sign something.” I haven’t had anyone throw their underwear at me or anything like that.
I'm not sure if it's just how I'm reading the transcript but it seems like Evans really did not like the questions being asked by the interviewee. Click here to read the entire interview and decided for yourself.
Screenwriters Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus said in April 2011, that they have been writing a sequel for Marvel Studios. In a June 2011 interview, the duo stated, "The story will likely be in the present day. We're experimenting with flashback elements for more period World War II stuff. I can't say much more than that but we made it baggy enough to refer to more stories in the past". In September 2011, star Chris Evans said a sequel may not be released until 2014.
