Chris Evans To Be Recast In AVENGERS II For Being A Traitor JOKES Chris Hemsworth

The Avengers is opening strong and will assuredly break box office records but the film's release also means we're sadly, winding down on our coverage. Here's a humorous interview with the cast about who is their favorite superhero.

By now I'm sure you know, The Avengers was great! You can read my glowing review by clicking, here. However, with the release comes the sobering fact that the long road to Earth's Mightiest Heroes assembling on the big screen is over. But before we move on, let's here from the cast one more time about the film and their experience, thanks to Buzzine. There's some interesting answers as well as some very funny banter between Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth.

QUESTION: The Avengers deals with unifying some strong personalities. Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Iron Man, Hawkeye, and Black Widow are all used to working on their own, in entirely different circumstances. One could say the same for such a star-power ensemble cast. Were you afraid of egos clashing?

Chris Hemsworth: Don’t look anyone in the eye, there were a few rules with Chris [Evans] especially.

Chris Evans: That’s right, never look me in the eye.

Hemsworth: Keep a perimeter around him, don’t touch him.

Evans: Don’t talk to me directly.


QUESTION: Who is your favorite superhero?

Evans: I like Iron Man. I had a crush on him. I do, I just thought he was so good and so...

Hemsworth: And he’s the godfather of this whole enterprise.

Evans: We owe him and if he didn’t do what he did with that role, we wouldn’t be making these movies. So I like him, but I also like Superman too. Is that like sacrilegious to say?

Hemsworth: Oh, what?!

Evans: [to self] DC... bite your traitor tongue.

Hemsworth: You will be re-cast for that one right?

Evans: Chris Pine will be playing Captain America in The Avengers II.







QUESTION: Besides, of course, The Hulk, who is your favorite superhero?

Mark Ruffalo: I always loved Iron Man, and X-Men was probably my second favorite comic book series, Frank Miller’s X-Men and I really actually loved Wolverine quite a bit. He was probably my favorite.

QUESTION: Do you think there will be another Avengers movie?

Ruffalo: You could only hope so -- but this [one] is good and you never know what the future’s going to bring, but I think we are all set up for another Avengers movie. It would be nice to see. I’d love to do another one with Joss, that’s for sure. I think he really captures it well.






QUESTION: So other than your characters, who is your favorite superhero and why?

Jeremy Renner: I always liked Spider Man when I was a kid, I always tried to come up with some to make that happen and the confetti stuff -- that’s not a web.

Scarlet Johansson: I always liked Silver Surfer, which was probably a decent comic, I don’t even know. I just thought he was rad.







I just gleamed the more humorous content from the interviews. There's a bit more at the site including a few answers not included in the video. Be sure to click the source link below to read the full transcript.


The Avengers is an upcoming American superhero film produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name. It is the sixth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film is written and directed by Joss Whedon and features an ensemble cast, which includes Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L.

After the success of the film Iron Man in May 2008, Marvel announced that The Avengers would be released in July 2011. With the signing of Scarlett Johansson in March 2009, the film was pushed back for a 2012 release. Whedon was brought on board in April 2010 and rewrote the screenplay that was originally written by Zak Penn. Production began in April 2011 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, before moving to Cleveland, Ohio in August 2011 and New York City in September 2011. The film was converted to 3D in post-production.

The Avengers is scheduled for release on May 4, 2012 in the United States in 2D and 3D.

tonedawg217 - 5/5/2012, 6:08 PM
I think it's funny that Scarlett thinks that the Silver Surfer is (Norrin) Rad(d).
SpiderFan35 - 5/5/2012, 6:09 PM
Whedon did an amazing job, and the actors worked as a team just like the Avengers should.

Can't wait to see it again, and bring on Avengers 2!

Now Marvel has another hit on their hands they need to do the one thing they have failed to do up to this point ... retain the director. Sign Whedon up now Marvel and don't be tight arsed this time - pay him well.

You scared the shit out of me for a second... don't do that!!!
BIGBMH - 5/5/2012, 7:03 PM
I was also quite startled for a second. It was like "WHAT?! No! Why- oh. ok. phew"

Chris and Chris are good together. They're often paired up for these interview and seem to get along well. Maybe we should have more of them together in Avengers 2.
LordThanos231 - 5/5/2012, 7:05 PM
LMAO! in Whedon we trust.
TheTaskmaster - 5/5/2012, 7:07 PM
By Odin's beard! That headline scared the heck out of me.
marcel - 5/5/2012, 7:08 PM
Avengers was sweet! So many great moments. Hulk!
TheTaskmaster - 5/5/2012, 7:08 PM
Oh and I notice Intruder is back, not gonna lie I kind of missed you :P
KALel3412 - 5/5/2012, 7:09 PM

eleven59 - 5/5/2012, 7:17 PM
Just got back from seeing it! Loved it!
TheTaskmaster - 5/5/2012, 7:19 PM
@Intruder Oh I'm delirious, but its because my body is so tired from all of the epic.
headlopper - 5/5/2012, 7:23 PM
All I can say at this point is that seeing Thanos today totally blew my mind!

What does this mean?

MARVEL is heading to out space children , and I can SMMMMEELL the Zandarian Woarld Mind form here! Whoooo!
PsyGuy - 5/5/2012, 7:24 PM
This headline scared me!!!
GUNSMITH - 5/5/2012, 7:26 PM
DON'T BE SCARED PSYBOY HERE I WILL EASE YOUR PAIN...

SugarYumYum - 5/5/2012, 7:32 PM
LOL that is certainly an attention grabbing title. Love how the Chris's joke around during their interviews. They're really great together, Whedon should definitely have more Thor/Cap moments in the Avengers films.
avengingson - 5/5/2012, 7:33 PM
Pretty sure Frank Miller never did The X-Men... Maybe he meant the Wolverine limited series...
PaulRom - 5/5/2012, 7:36 PM
@Intruder: Welcome back asshole. ;)

And if they ever had to recast Cap in a future Marvel film (which I REALLY hope they don't), Pine would be a decent choice. Though I better see him as Flash or Daredevil.
SleazyJonesDC - 5/5/2012, 7:38 PM
Marvel is trying so hard to leave DC and Justice league with nothing to work with. Stealing everything from them like always. Taking the idea and just switching stuff. What brings the League together alien invasion and the guy that looks just like Darkseid at the end of the avengers. Goodness its crazy. Im surprised DC aint already sued Marvels ass again
thalidomide - 5/5/2012, 7:42 PM
HEY TRUDY WELCOME BACK!
Asterisk - 5/5/2012, 7:46 PM
You scared me there for a second!
DavidChen26 - 5/5/2012, 7:50 PM
I met Chris Evans and a screening for The Avengers in NY and he was as cool as the other side of the pillow. Oh and the movie as you all know was EPIC!
SugarYumYum - 5/5/2012, 7:52 PM
@PatientZero: LOL, you've still got an hour before you should head to the hospital (lol head).

@Sleazy: Well, it's not like DC/WB had a 20+ year lead on Marvel studios and did virtually nothing with it...

...but yeah, they kind of did.

Isn't really Marvel's fault that WB has underused their characters and stories to the point where anything they do now will seem like a copy of Marvel. On the plus side, this will force whoever is directing a Justice League movie in the future to do some creative thinking (though depending on who that director is, it could be a plus or a negative).
thalidomide - 5/5/2012, 8:02 PM
@Intruder

Dude how many times have you seen the movie?
113 - 5/5/2012, 9:09 PM
SUPERMAN FTW! He'd kick the whole Justice League and Avengers ass combined!

But also

Avengers > Dark Knight Rises
