Hey Gang! It bee a full day of Captain America movie goodies! We've seen the Entertainment Weekly Captain America cover, we've seen the exclusive images that will be inside the issue, now here are a few little details on the film, and quotes from director Joe Johnston and actor Chris Evans from the Captain America article that will hit shelves tomorrow. It's definitely going to be worth picking up!
Here's a few little tid bits from tomorrows article, enjoy!
During a scene using wires and a high powered fan Evans is dropped onto a Black train car, after Joe Johnston yells 'Cut' Evans winced with a little bit of pain stating:
“There was a lot of business getting choked down there,” I almost fell off the train! That would have been a disaster,” says Evans. “Did everything else look good?”
Even with the stunt work it seems that Chris Evans is wanting perfection, which is exactly what we want from the lead star of the most important super hero film made this generation. Captain America will set up a total of 9 movies (Captain America Trilogy, Avengers Trilogy, and 3 more Marvel movies with at least cameos of Captain America)staring Chris Evans as Captain America. Thank god Chris is self conscious enough to want to get it right.
Kevein Feige even chimed in stating:
Captain America is “the last jewel in the Marvel crown that hasn't gotten its own movie franchise.”
Kevin went on to explain why Marvel ultimately went with Chris Evans as Captain America:
“We wanted an American.”
Which is a pretty important requirement for an actor to fulfill while taking the role of Captain America.
Still, director Joe Johnston states:
“I never wanted to make this movie into something of a flag-waver. We were very careful about that when we were developing the screenplay.” It's “about international cooperation.”
Of course Captain America is going to set up the most important Marvel Team Up movie of all time, The Avengers.
At first Evans did not want the role at all. In fact he turned it down 3 times before finally accepting it. Chris goes on to say:
“I've made some spotty films in the past, and I didn't want another one on this scale, “I remember telling a buddy of mine, ‘If the movie bombs, I’m f---ed. If the movie hits, I’m f---ed!’
“I was just scared,” Chris says. “I realized my whole decision-making process was fear-based, and you never want to make a decision out of fear. And so one weekend, I just said, ‘F---it. Let’s do it.’ ”
What's director Joe Johnston's take on Chris Evans:
“He has really brought a whole different level to the character that I didn't know existed—more real, more complicated, more vulnerable.”
Chris Evans now has no regrets taking on the iconic role:
“When I first put on the suit, I was absolutely terrified. But once I started working, I could just see this was going to be a good experience. Then I started going, ‘Wow. This is really cool,’ ” he says. “I can't believe I was almost too chicken to play Captain America.”
