Evans didn’t jump on Captain America

When the announced Chris Evans was taking the role of Captain America people had some doubts. Granted, it seems that even Evans had some thinking to do before just jumping at the opportunity.

It was a challenging process for me, trying to decide whether or not to do it. I came down on the side of going for it because I really think Marvel is doing some great things these days, the script is great and it’s going to be a fun character to play. He’s a wonderful character, just as a man, aside from the comic hero background. If it was just a story about the man, Steve Rogers, I’d be really interested. He’s an incredibly noble, honest, selfless man, and those are qualities that I think people can aspire to and look up to.

This is a big mouthful to take on, and I don’t blame the guy for taking the offer seriously.

After all, they did numerous screen tests and they seemed to just be to generate rumours as they offered it to Evans without an audition.

So yeah, he chewed on it for a while, then said yes.

And I look forward to seeing what he does with it.

  1. I think he’ll do just fine, Kid’s got chops and a cockey charisma that dont grate on ya (unlike Ryan Renolds)I know thats not really Cap’s style(cockey)and I dont really expect him to do that stuff alot. He was by far the best thing in the FF series. (I’m still at a loss for words on the rest of that cast!)

    side note: Did anyone see the special features for FF2?
    They even F’d up the Surfer w/ mass CGI for no reason, the outtakes of Doug Jones in full Make-up looked better than the CGI! that shit pisses me off!

    Surfer is probally my all-time Favorite, next to Spidey and Cap

  2. I REALLY, REALLY am not comfortable with the fact that he didn’t audition.

    This makes me very uneasy. Ive never seen him in a role like this. But i was hoping they would test his abilities of pulling off a role like it. Apparently theyre as clueless as i am, if he hasnt been auditioned.

    I mean, what role has he ever been in- in which he plays an inspiring, intimidating leader?
