Chris Evans talks about balance in The Avengers

4 years agoby:

Since Marvel's superheroes are gathering to handle a situation so dire that requires all of their presence, we're expecting plenty of sizzling widescreen excitement when THE AVENGERS assemble next summer.

Fortunately, writer-director Joss Whedon has historically been more interested in and adept with interaction than just action, which is what the comic fans really want to see instead of CG spectacle when these characters get together. And Captain America himself Chris Evans says that will be reflected in the movie. "I think they struck a really good balance," Evans tells HuffPo. "There's obviously action, you've got all these super heroes, there's gonna be constant battle, I think every ten pages, there's going to be some sort of action, but you can have all the action in the world, if you don't have some substance, you got nothing."

"I don't want to sh*t talk other movies, I know a lot of other movies like that where it's all action and no heart. It's not easy trying to bring all those characters together and find a story, but the best thing about Joss is that Joss is a fan, Joss is a comic book guy. It feels so nice working with a guy that is well, the people I am trying to please is Joss. Joss is one of those dudes. And if Joss is happy with the dialog, if Joss is happy with the wardrobe, if Joss is happy, then I'm happy. Because he's Comic-Con, he's one of these dudes who would be in the audience geeking out, so if he's happy, I'm happy."

Evans also says he shares a lot of screen time with Tony Stark/Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr., for whom he shows no small amount of manlove: "You'll do a take and he gives you a little thumbs up and he just makes your day. You're like, Downey just gave me a thumbs up! That just made my life. I'm like skipping to my trailer, and this guy had no idea the impact he just had. He's just such a nice guy and he was the first dude -- I've made a lot of movies with a lot of big actors -- the first guy I'd ever been on set, and he comes on set, and it was the first time I was ever like, 'Wow, that's a f*cking movie star. That is a f*cking movie star."

Great, but this isn't news. Joss Wheadon has been "the man" for a long time.

Loving the new suit.

It looks like Captain America hsa slimmed down, but I guess being frozen for so long does that to you.

if he's so interested in telling a great story and not worrying about a bunch of action, why do two fantastic four movies? be that said, its whedon for f**ks sake, how can it not be good?

The Fantastic Four movies were good, but could have been better. Definitely two of the more interesting, fun comic book films that we have seen. Am looking forward to the reboot.

well he was actually the best part of the F4 movies & at least looked like he was into the character, unlike the rest of the bunch.

Rogers: "Hey Tony, I knew your Dad. He designed my original shield and uniform."
Stark: "You don't say. Interesting."
Rogers: "He also kept trying to nail the girl I was falling in love with."
Stark: "Hahahahahaha...so?"

Said all the right things I want to hear. This movie is going to be unstoppable at the box office. Enjoy next year fellas, because between Avengers and Dark Knight Rises, it'll be the peak for the superhero movie trend.

Sounds like the movie is coming along great, I am so hoping for a genuine scene between rogers & stark about what it was like working with Tony's dad back in the day.

Me too. I mean they HAVE to bring this up during the film. Would be great to see how Tony reacts to Captain knowing and being friends with his father. Also it should be interesting to see Captain and his new love interest's relationship considering that events that took place in Captain's solo movie.

It's great to read about how well this cast gelled and how much they all care about the finished product. Every article I read confirms it. Joss is indeed the PERFECT guy to pull this all together. Honestly, I can think of no other director on the planet I would want in charge of this franchise.

The weird thing is, I fucking LOATHE Buffy the Vampire Slayer (tv show), but I really admire Joss Whedon regardless. I think he's smart, creative, realistic, and has a great sense of characterization - and if Serenity is any gauge, a great sense of cinematography.

Chris is good guy. I'm glad he got the role as well. As for RDJ, is there anyone who doesn't have some sort of crush or admiration for this guy? RDJ is the man.

Nolan and mini Bane can take a back seat. This is my most anticipated movie next year.

I love Chris Evans. So glad he got the opportunity to play Captain America.

One of the most important and most exciting things that I am looking forward to is seeing Captain America and Iron Man's relationship in the movie. And if done right, which it will, then I think the relationship between the two will be one of the best parts of 'The Avengers'.

I have complete faith in Joss. I still cannot believe he got to do The Avengers. I hope this isn't his last Marvel film, would love to see him do an X-men film with McAvoy and Fassbender.

Such a great interview...

And hearing the great chemistry with Downey will definitely show on the big-screen.
