Chris Evans Wants 'Captain America' To Do What In THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON?

Given that Captain America The Winter Soldier will mark Chris Evans' 3rd turn as the Super Soldier, it's safe to say he has grown into the role--and even admits to being protective of it--since he hesitantly agreed to do The First Avenger in 2010. So, SFX Magazine asked the star if there was anything Steve Rogers has not done yet that he would like to see him do in The Avengers sequel next year. "This might sound crazy, but... be wrong," said Evans. "Make a mistake. He's so concerned with being right. Even the struggle in this one, it's about how to be right. His biggest struggle is just being the best he can be, and if he doesn't achieve that, he really beats himself up. His moral compass is so sound, you rarely see him make a mistake. It's everyone around him dropping the ball. So it would be nice to see a little bit of human error or a human flaw, just immaturity or foolishness, an ego, something." Obviously, Chris Evans has received his copy of the Joss Whedon-written script for The Avengers: Age of Ultron script by now, with filming scheduled to start next month, but this interview may have conducted previously.

Regardless, there's a separate interview (via Collider), where Chris Evans was asked if he feels comfortable enough in the role that he'd be vocal about something he disagrees with. "Yeah, yeah, I am now," said the actor. "The first movie, I just felt like I was lucky to be around. The second movie, you just don’t want to piss anyone off; there are so many other amazing people here. Now you start feeling like, 'Well, I’m throwing this barbecue, too.' [laughs] It’s a strange feeling being like, “Well, hang on, what if we did it like this?” It’s a nice feeling to come into your own. I think the first movie, we didn’t even… I’d see myself in the suit and be like, “Who’s that idiot in the suit?” It’s starting to feel more like real or home or something, so you do start caring a little bit more. So you do run into those kids and they do have that impact and it’s a very nice thing. It’s a responsibility now. I don’t want to make it sound like it’s gone to my head or anything, you just care a little bit more about making sure this is good quality stuff because we’re going to run the contract. We’re going to do Avengers 2. Probably going to do Avengers 3. [laughs] These things will happen so you want to make sure it’s pointed in the right direction. You don’t want to step on toes, but there’s room to be vocal and that’s the best thing about Marvel. You can be stuck in a contract at a much worse place, a lot worse place. Marvel’s very collaborative. You feel the love from Marvel." What do you think?



After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy — the Winter Soldier. Starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Georges St-Pierre, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp and Maximiliano Hernández with Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Redford, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is directed by the team of Anthony & Joe Russo from a screenplay written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely and is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1941. Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing the film. Executive producers on the project include Alan Fine, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee. The creative production team on the film includes director of photography Trent Opaloch, production designer Peter Wenham, editors Jeffrey Ford, A.C.E. and Mary Jo Markey, A.C.E. and three time Oscar®-nominated costume designer Judianna Makovsky. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is set for release on April 4, 2014.

I agree, it'd be cool to see how Cap deals with being the cause of the problem
HurricaneXavier - 2/6/2014, 9:36 AM
I think that this movie will be the best movie Marvel has put out, easily.
CherryBomb - 2/6/2014, 9:36 AM
I want to see him get naked.
Destined - 2/6/2014, 9:37 AM
Interesting comments. I think in order for Cap to mess up, it would have to be from an influential standpoint like an impersonation of Cap going cray, but it's another being in disguise of him. But Cap will always consciously try to do the right thing or what he thinks is the right thing anyway. Great comments from Chris!

Copy, paste, paste.

Speaking of mistakes, you reprinted his comment twice.

What? that headline reads like a$$.
EdgyOutsider - 2/6/2014, 9:39 AM
It would be cool to see Cap do a wrong just to show he's not perfect and it would make it more interesting. Maybe he finally comes to blows with Iron Man for a bit and nearly kill him before catching himself and realizing what he was doing. Something like that would be great.

I thought it was gonna to be have sex, lol.

Because... Does Captain America has had any type of relationship after being back to life?
cipher - 2/6/2014, 9:41 AM

monkeyballs - 2/6/2014, 9:41 AM

It's called character development. All it takes is the right writer to make it work.
gulducati - 2/6/2014, 9:42 AM

Dev7 - 2/6/2014, 9:44 AM
With that headline one would think Evans wanted Cap to do something really disturbing in Avengers Age of Ultron.
Carl - 2/6/2014, 9:44 AM
how about acrobatics
CaptShipwreck - 2/6/2014, 9:44 AM
Seems the lad has matured a bit
batz11 - 2/6/2014, 9:45 AM
Cherry is horned up today... :)

MrReese - 2/6/2014, 9:46 AM
Remember when he said he would like 2 be in Thor 2 in some way & then it happened.He's prolly saying whats gonna happen without really saying whats gonna happen.If anything it will happen in Cap 3.
CapA - 2/6/2014, 9:46 AM
I just want him to scream "Avengers assemble !"
cipher - 2/6/2014, 9:46 AM
Balls.

Where the f*ck does my lighter always run off to? I'll probably find the bloody thing again when I've given up on lookin' for it.

F*ck.


thedudeabides - 2/6/2014, 9:47 AM
Disappointed with his character arc so far in the films. I think The Winter Soldier will redeem it quite a bit with his fighting and tactical skills being developed. I would like to see Captain America become the true leader of The Avengers and there will have to be very key moments where he stands up to Thor and Iron Man. I feel he was respected towards the end of The Avengers but not as their commander with the still VERY strong S.H.I.E.L.D. presence overshadowing him at every turn. It certainly looks from trailers though that they will be crippled at the end of The Winter Soldier and Avengers Tower will be up and running at full speed. (I still wish the after credits sequence in Iron Man III had Tony Stark arriving at the completed tower, that was just a great cliffhanger at the end of Avengers and it was very upsetting it wasn't even acknowledged in the following film.)
Destined - 2/6/2014, 9:48 AM
@gambjel there's the relationship with Sharon, which is terrible. Really her character is poo. And then he has one with Black Widow, which there's been hints from both it could go that way starting in TWS.
MrReese - 2/6/2014, 9:48 AM
@batz11 lol I haven't watched that movie in like forever.

ProfessorX - 2/6/2014, 9:48 AM
Something tells me Freshman didn't proofread this article...
monkeyballs - 2/6/2014, 9:49 AM
I don't see a problem with the headline. I understood it just fine.

What I don't understand is how Gusto is still alive! Must be all of that fresh country air.

TheBeard - 2/6/2014, 9:50 AM
i want to see cap lift Mjolnir

screaming avengers assemble goes without saying
DrDoom - 2/6/2014, 9:50 AM
Those power users . . . .

Not proofreading and shit . . . .

lolz
Dinotron - 2/6/2014, 9:52 AM
That's the thing that makes Cap such the role model, he puts his best in everything and aims to always do the right thing. To see him stray from that and mess up would be interesting
monkeyballs - 2/6/2014, 9:52 AM
@Pasties "And shame Cherry, children visit this site."

That explains what Gusto's doing here.


RamonSuarez - 2/6/2014, 9:52 AM
This is an old interview.

But you gotta love Evans' attitude.

Dude is maturing into the role.
Destined - 2/6/2014, 9:52 AM
@thebeard yes! I know people who are not Comic book fans don't know he can do that. That would be life!
RamonSuarez - 2/6/2014, 9:54 AM
I do think the concept of Cap dealing with being fallible is an interesting one.

You saw it at the end of Civil War when he realizes that he was fighting an unpopular war against Iron Man's registration initiative.

It would be interesting to see where that kind of dilemma takes him in Cap 3.
Dinotron - 2/6/2014, 9:54 AM
@thedudeabides
I think Fury said in the trailer,"looks like you will be calling the shots from now captain", so Caps leadership role might be really pronounced in this flick with leading shield agents, widow, falcon, and all.
DCMarvelFreshman - 2/6/2014, 9:56 AM
Lmao I set this article to show up on the site much later today, but got caught up in that GOTG article. When I just noticed it on the main, I just knew you guys were in here tearing me a new one lol My bad. I fixed most of it now:-)
teentitansrock - 2/6/2014, 9:57 AM
I like what Chris had to say can't wait for April 4th!
monkeyballs - 2/6/2014, 9:57 AM
I like Chris Evans. He's not the best actor in the world but he's a good enough actor who has great potential for improvement. While I feel Captain America: TFA was a bore fest, he certainly did the role justice and was even better in The Avengers.

Making movies is a collaborative effort. Some studios and/or directors and/or actors don't feel that way. It's nice to hear that he looks at it as such>
