By now we’ve all seen the picture of Chris Evans in the Captain America suit, but the Entertainment Weekly it graced the cover of also was accompanied with an article about the film as well and gave us some pretty juicy details. So it turns out Cap’s got a lot to carry on those broad shoulder of his. Being the last Marvel movie to be released before Joss Wheden takes the reigns and gives us our Avengers movie, it has to give a good lead-in. Captain America will do so by using the frozen in ice storyline that most know.
Also, the EW article revealed that the film might not be called Captain America when it gets released internationally. Instead it may be called The First Avenger. Supposedly this is being done in order to attract those who may not be so fond of America (Wait, there are people out there that aren’t fond America?!).
The article also informs us that the pajama-looking orignal comstume with the wings on the helmet will be featured in the film as well. Evans however will later approach Howard Stark and Stark Industries, who will rectify this atrocity and make Captain America the uniform that will be featured in the majority of the film.
About the role, Evans reveals,
“At the time, I remember telling a buddy of mine, ‘If the movie bombs, I’m f—-ed. If the movie hits, I’m f—-ed!'” After declining the part three times, Evans took a meeting with Marvel execs and Johnston and was dazzled by their plans for the movie. He still felt wary about suiting up for Captain America — but then he had an epiphany. “I was just scared,” he says. “I realized my whole decision making process was fear based, and you never want to make a decision out of fear.'” Evans signed a six-picture deal with Marvel to play the character, and he has no regrets: “I can’t believe was almost too chicken to play Captain America.”
That stament clearly demonstrates why Evans is a perfect fit to play Steve Rogers, our scrawny soldier turned super hero (thanks to government experiment) Captain America. What do you guys think about all of the new details? Are you more excited for the movie now?? Check more photos from the entertainment Weekly Captain America Spread after the Jump!
