Chris Evans reveals his inspiration for Captain America: The First Avenger

Dec. 27, 2010by: Niki Stephens

This particular week is a slow one. People are still enjoying the post-Christmas fun and readying themselves for New Years parties. Never fear though, there's still news lingering around in the farthest corners of the internet.

For example, this little gem that came out of Wizard Magazine.

Steve Rogers isn't the only inspiration for Chris Evans when he channels Captain America. First, Evans talked about why Cap goes through the secret military experiment that makes him a superhero, "The reason he's chosen for this experiment is because he has a pure heart. It's the morality, the nobility. He's a real redeeming character to play, it's exciting to think of playing him."

Then he explained his inspiration, "I actually have a friend of mine who I'm modeling the character after. This guy is actually an Eagle Scout, he's one of those guys who stayed in the Boy Scouts all the way until he was 18." Evans also notes that this character is different one for him, "He's just a good human being. He does the right things, he's open, he's honest, he's sincere, he's selfless. It's something that I think everyone aspires to. A lot of time I play characters who don't have any redeeming quality."

I'm with a lot of you when it comes to expectations of CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER. It would be really awesome if this film delivered. Here's hoping for the best.

Extra Tidbit: When I saw this image of Cap for Civil War all I could think was, "F*ck yes."

Looking good!

I always thought if they made a Captain America movie they should have Spielberg direct it. I remember thinking there's no one who could make it work like he could. Then we get this guy who was kind of like Spielbergs protg in a way. And I seem to be getting this kick ass vibe from all the photos. I think this guy has what it takes and I couldn't be more excited now.

I'M LIKING WHAT I'VE SEEN...

From this movie so far, and I've really come around on Evans playing Cap. Can't wait to finally see a trailer for this one.

This should be a good flick. Off topic but shit I don't remember the last time I read a Wizard comic. Last one I bought was like 30 pages for 7 bucks, half of it was advertising. Useless.

Love Chris Evans, I'm pulling for this one big time. But he's right about the characters he usually plays, it'll be interesting to see if he can pull it off

Yeah not to be a prick but this is pretty old.
Will actors ever say "Well I read the source material and I based my character off of that."

I read this almost ten days ago.

But I feel like he shouldn't have modeled it - because nobody is really like Cap
