Chris Evans has revealed that, in spite of having one of the most prominent roles out of any Avengers character, he’s not recognized as Captain America very often — and when he is, the experience is much more humbling than flattering.
Talking on Thirst Aid Kit Podcast, Chris Evans explained that without his Captain America get-up or specific aesthetic choices that shape a shot in one of the Marvel movies, he’s not really recognized all that often:
“Well, luckily for me, I don’t think I really resemble myself, the way I look on film… When I run into people, if it is kind of explained that I’m the actor who plays that character, [I] get this kind of cock-headed look, and they just go ‘No! You’re not that guy! I just saw that movie last night. That guy’s bigger, he’s taller, he’s better looking!’ There really is a disbelief at my actual form in reality… It’s kind of a blow to my confidence, but I guess it does kind of help me get through crowds. So I guess I don’t really have people coming up to me as often as you’d think. When they do, I suppose, it’s really nice.”
Evans is reportedly more introverted as a person than the character he’s played, so for him it’s just as well if he’s not recognized as “that guy who plays Captain America” every time he has to go out to buy groceries. But there’s still something to be said for the fact that he’s able to enjoy the time he does meet with people who recognizes him as Captain America, even if those moments are comparatively few and far between.
Avengers: Infinity War will be released on May 4, 2018, and has a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautisa, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Rudd, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Hiroyuki Sanada, Winston Duke, Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Benicio Del Toro, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, and Josh Brolin. Here’s the official synopsis:
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
The currently-untitled Avengers 4 features a cast made up of many of the key players in Infinity War — alongside newcomers like Brie Larson and Evangeline Lilly — and is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2019.
What Walter Hamada Can Bring To DC Films
Walter Hamada has been announced as the new head of DC Films. This news was not entirely unexpected. Justice League did not perform well to anyone’s expectations, critically and financially. When a major tentpole does not perform well, there are bound to be shakeups within a studio. That means people are moved both out of and into positions of power.
So even though Hamada is now running things, there will still be time before we see his effect on the DC Extended Universe. Aquaman is already in post-production, Shazam! is in the middle of pre-production and Wonder Woman 2 is gearing up to start shooting later this year. That takes the franchise up to the end of 2019, giving Hamada enough time to really get acclimated before making an impact.
Here is just how he can do so. Click Next to see what Hamada can bring to DC Films!
