Chris Evans is the Leader of the Pack

Posted Friday, 10 April 2015   |   3855 views   |   Men's Interest   |   Comments (0) A big kid at heart – that’s what we’re discovering Chris Evans is. And, it turns out, he’s a bit of a geek too.

The man behind Captain America’s winged mask has started our conversation by saying how much of a comic book fan he is and, well, you know we love a man who loves his comics...

“I didn’t know who Ultron was prior to Joss [Whedon, writer and director] throwing him in the movie...” he says of the big bad in the latest superhero blockbuster, Avengers: Age of Ultron.

“That’s so funny!” he says when we reference having first experienced the robotic villain in 1984’s Secret Wars series. He adopts a mockingly boasty voice. “I kind of fancy myself a bit of a comic connoisseur, but he was new to me – I’m impressed you knew who he was.”

Is it wrong that we’re cheering on the bad guy?
“No! Of course not! That’s what makes good movies like this. Look how good Tom Hiddleston was. The more you like the bad guy, the more entertaining the movie is. If you don’t care about the bad guy at all then there really isn’t much conflict to invest in.”

It turns out Chris hasn’t read Secret Wars, so we’re still that little bit geekier. But he’s the man in charge, so he wins. Just.

“It sounds silly to say this but it really is growing on me,” he says of the role in question. “The first movie, you’re so scared and the second one, you’re trying to not mess up this amazing group ensemble that’s trying to kind of revolutionise the way they do comic book films. By the third time you put the suit on, with Captain America 2, you really start to find your footing and then hit your stride and feel really comfortable. You’re very present with it, you’re not necessarily worried about the future or trying to analyse the past. You’re very much present. And I’m loving it. It’s kind of at the point where you’re almost sad to see the end coming around the corner in the next couple of years.”
