Chris Evans makes a great Steve Rogers. He looks like your typical all American good guy. The upcoming sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier is said to be the most different from any Marvel movie. They are comparing it to a 1970’s thriller. Here is what Evans had to say:
“I don’t think Marvel’s ever done anything like this. The [Russo] brothers said right from the start that we were really doing a ’70s thriller. And I think just Cap’s abilities mesh well with that kind of genre. I mean, his powers are very meat and potatoes. Faster. Stronger. Punch. Kick. That works with those types of movies. It would be more difficult to put, say, Hulk in that kind of context.”
He also had this to say about Steve Rogers adjusting to the modern era:
“We really haven’t explored his adjustment period. In The Avengers we had so many characters you have to address, you don’t really have time to sit with any single one. In this movie there’s a lot going on for Steve. He’s trying to acclimatize to the modern world. I don’t want to give too much away, but it’s about trying to find how he fits. He’s a man from the 1940s. He’s just woken up. For everybody else, it’s been a slow burn to get to where we are in 2014. But for him, suddenly there’s the internet, cell phones and The Patriot Act. The technology’s new to him and so is the access the government has to that technology.”
Last but not least, he talked about playing a superhero that doesn’t have an eccentric personality:
“To be a good man is difficult. To be the best man you can be is even harder. Even though he doesn’t choose to wear his baggage on his sleeve, I think that’s his skill set. He doesn’t moan. There is a depth to him. There are always new things to find. For the first film it was about the new body and responsibilities. Here we get to dive back in with that established. It feels really comfortable coming back to him.”
Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be released on April 4th, 2014.
