Chris Evans Talks Captain America's <i>The Avengers</i> Costume; Praises Robert Downey Jr.!

Further explaining the differences between Captain America: The First Avenger's costume from The Avengers, Chris Evans ultimately praises his 'Iron Man' costar!

Chatting with the press for next week's release of Captain America: The First Avenger, the star Chris Evans further compared and contrasted his costume in the film with it's modern version in The Avengers. And ultimately praising his Avengers costar, 'Iron Man' actor Robert Downey Jr., read on what he had to say below!

“They each have pros and cons. This, the first Cap costume, is very cumbersome. It’s thick and it’s bulky, it’s tough to do fight sequences in, but the cowl, the helmet, can come on and off at will. The current wardrobe is a bit different. The suit, the range of motion is fantastic, you can really get some good fight sequences in. It’s a little bit more form-fitting. But the cowl, the hood, has some… changes that make it a little more difficult to get on and off.”

“He’s so great. I can’t say enough about him, I really can’t. I didn’t know what to expect going in to work with him. He’s so talented and he’s got so much charisma and persona. I can honestly say, of all the movie stars I’ve worked with, he’s the one that when he comes on set, you really feel like, ‘Man — this guy’s a movie star!’ You just feel it. When he comes in a room he just owns the oxygen. He is a movie star, and he’s been so great. So supportive, so positive. I had to do a scene with him the other day where I was just nervous, it was just me and him, and I was just terrified. It’s Robert Downey Jr.! And he’s just, you know, every little take he gives you a fist bump, a little thumbs up, and it just changes your whole day. It probably means nothing in his mind but I go back to my trailer, like, giddy. He really is something else.”
