Chris Evans Hypes Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Track Record

Chris Evans Marvel Cinematic UniverseNow approaching its 10th anniversary, it is fascinating to see how the Marvel Cinematic Universe has grown over the years. When it started with Iron Man in 2008, fans were cautious but optimistic about what the franchise could become and thanks to Kevin Feige and company, the MCU has become a cultural phenomenon, part of which is thanks to the group of actors and actresses including Chris Evans who bring the characters to life.

Evans was at ACE Comic Con and while there, he hyped up Marvel’s track record and how doing both Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled fourth Avengers film opened his eyes to seeing himself as part of a bigger picture alongside other larger-than-life characters:

“That was the best part of this movie, is that you really kind of, it really was for the first time for me feeling like… the first few movies it’s almost like it’s happening to somebody else. You kind of feel like you’re watching it happen, but you’re not actually a part of it. This was kind of the first movie where you actually felt like you had a seat at the table and you belonged and it was so nice to have all these other franchises that you’ve watched and admired come to a set where you’re like oh man, I belong here, and all these great people are part of a movie that we’re all doing together, and it was just wonderful because all of those franchises, well, let’s be honest. Marvel doesn’t miss. They haven’t missed yet. They’re batting a thousand.”

Much like what many critics and audiences have felt, Evans is awestruck at how Feige and company managed to hit one home run after another:

“I don’t know how they do that. They don’t miss and so to see all these actors come together from all these other franchises that I’ve seen as fans be exchanging dialogue with me was overwhelming and really just so satisfying because really truly, there’s not one bad apple.”

Every film in the MCU has received a Fresh Tomato rating on Rotten Tomatoes. To give broader context, here are the Rotten Tomatoes scores for each MCU film:

Iron Man – 94%

The Incredible Hulk – 67%

Marvel is looking to continue their streak of acclaimed films this year with Black Panther (February 16, 2018), Avengers: Infinity War (May 4, 2018) and Ant-Man and the Wasp (July 6, 2018).

Here is the synopsis for Avengers: Infinity War.  

“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.”

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Benicio Del Toro, Danai Gurira and Josh Brolin.

    I know how they don’t miss. By paying off the critics. You don’t get so many Movies right in a row. Not even accomplished directors managed this. Its Definitely a rigged system. And i hope it gets exposed

    • Grant McCollister

      That still doesn’t explain the quality of the movies

      • Clark

        Of course it does. Many of them are OVERRATED

        • Grant McCollister

          In your opinion. Don’t try to push your opinion on other people

    • Fenix

      You are retarded.

      • Clark

        Can’t handle the truth i see. Explain how every MCU, Star Wars, Pixar movie is getting good reviews. Even when many of them are considered bad by the audience

        • Fenix

          Lol, no I live in reality. You live in butthurt DC fanboy conspiracy land. They’re great movies; audiences loved them enough to propel them to incredible financial success.

          Tell me, how well did Justice League do? Btw what a stupid unverifiable statement: “Even when many of them are considered bad by the audience”

          • Clark

            Its true many hate Thor 2, Iron man 2-3, Cap 1, Avengers 2, Doctor Strange ect.. yet critics gave them good reviews because they are afraid not getting free passes from Disney anymore

          • Fenix

            And you are basing this off what empirical data? Maybe you should go look at the cinema audience scores. Also, you never told me how JL went?

          • Clark

            Why do you want to see another comic book franchise to fail ? What do you get out of being so gleeful ?

          • Fenix

            Because of annoying little turds like yourself. You have devotion to an inferior product. A poorly planned franchise that only tried to make a franchise after all this time because they saw how successful the MCU was but didn’t want to do the work of laying the proper groundwork. Spearheaded by a director who thinks the definition of Batman and Superman is the elseworlds deconstructionist take which is meant as a dark “what if?” one-off, not the mainstream take.

    • Marquis de Sade

      You need Jesus, Clark…btw, you’ll be in my prayers, son.

      • Clark

        Truth hurt doesn’t it.

        • Fenix

          Lol what truth you moron? Marvel is flying high and DC/WB has another executive shakeup because of the abortion known as JL.

          • Clark

            Its only flying High because critics are paid to give it good reviews While mindless sheep follow them.

          • Fenix

            Yes, because movies that get fresh rotten tomatoes scores automatically do stellar box office numbers. Oh, hold on Blade Runner 2049 wants to talk to you or most best picture nominees.

    • Matias Gagliardone

      Lol that would only explain why critics say it’s good, it still doesn’t explain why most moviegoers say it’s good.

      Your tears taste delicious.

      • Clark

        Well its true.

      lol i love these excuses
