Marvel man and Oscar winner have a spirited discussion about how he’s going to care for whiz-kid in peek at indie drama from director Marc Webb
It has long been anticipated that once they call a wrap on ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and its as-yet untitled sequel (currently shooting back-to-back with Joe and Anthony Russo directing), Chris Evans would be hanging up the mask and shield of Captain America – but we might want to hold our horses there. Despite having long hinted at a desire to step back from acting in favour of directing once his Marvel contract reaches its conclusion with the third and fourth ‘Avengers’ movies, the 35-year old actor would appear to have had a change of heart – or, at least, is keeping his options open. Asked whether he will return as Steve Rogers beyond the upcoming two-volume ‘Avengers’ epic, Evans tells Collider, “It’s really not up to me.
‘Captain America’ star Chris Evans has been told stop publicly slating Donald Trump by those who advise him on his career moves. Evans has frequently harangued the president and those around him on Twitter, and has made his political views very well known.
Chris Evans plays Captain America on the big screen, but he feels a patriotic duty to stand up for injustice in real life, too.
It looks as though Chris Evans’ time as Captain America will be coming to an end after the next two ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ films. Evans explains that he’s hurting all over because he just started his workout routine the day before to get in shape for the next two Captain America films. Chris Evans only signed a six film contract with Marvel when he first agreed to star in ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’, negotiating it down from the original offer of nine.
US business magazine Forbes have named the highest-grossing actor at the global box office in 2016 – and it’s none other than Scarlett Johansson.
If you want to give your movie some bang for its buck, hire Chris Evans. The ‘Captain America’ star has earned the accolade of Forbes’ 10 Best Actors for the Buck for a second year running. Using the metric developed by the magazine, Evans returns $135.80 for ever $1 he is paid. Of course, it massively helped that he featured heavily in mostly money-spinning Marvel movies, including ‘Captain America: Civil War’, which grossed $1.153 billion. Next up on the list is Chris Pratt, who made back $125.40 for every $1 paid, thanks to roles in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and ‘Jurassic World’. Scarlett Johansson came in third ($88.60), then Mila Kunis ($49.50), and then Vin Diesel ($32). You can see the full top 10 in the slideshow above.

The lingering shirtless scene has become a trademark in Marvel’s movies and TV shows, and why not? Their leading men sacrifice cream cakes and booze in favour of gruelling gym sessions and infinite ab crunches to gain Marvel’s signature chiselled frames. But not all actors start out looking like a mythical god, so let’s take a look back at Marvel’s leading men before and after their magnificent makeovers.
When speaking to Collider, he gave an interesting response when asked about whether a ‘Captain America’ movie can exist without Steve Rogers. “It’s a good question and if we look back at the comic books as our inspiration and as the well from which this all springs, then the answer is “no,” Feige said.
The Hollywood Reporter delves into the secret economy of the fan convention circuit, where popular actors can walk away with six-figure payments from one or two days’ work
Extremely unlikely to have hidden at the back of the class for much longer, the folks behind Honest Trailers have taken aim at the box office-busting ‘Captain America: Civil War’.
Chris Evans has faced off against his share of formidable adversaries on the big screen – but it seems he might have a new, somewhat unexpected off-screen nemesis.
If you’re eagerly awaiting the home release of ‘Captain America: Civil War’ then this DVD extra released by Marvel should tide you over. There’s not long to wait now - just over a week, in fact - but Marvel have done a stellar job to get fans excited for it with a cool feature focusing on Thor (played by Chris Hemsworth, who incidentally isn’t even in the film). Titled ‘Civil War: Team Thor’, the three-and-a-half minute documentary spoof sees Thor relocate to Australia and move in with a bloke named Darryl after getting the cold shoulder from Tony Stark (Iron Man), Steve Rogers (Captain America) and the gang.
For five years now, US actor Chris Evans has been synonymous with Marvel’s elder superhero Captain America – but it might not have been so.
No doubt you’ll remember the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that captured everyone’s imagination in 2014, where everyone from actors, to singers got involved in the charity and a lot of money was donated to the cause. Captain America star Chris Evans has been one of the early famous faces to partake, posting his video onto social media over the weekend.
To celebrate the 75th birthday of the original Captain America Steve Rogers, his native home town of Brooklyn (in the real world) is erecting a 13-foot statue of the Marvel superhero. Cast in bronze, the statue will make its public debut at San Diego Comic Con later this month (20-24 July) before heading to its new home for a special ceremony on 10 August. A sketch of the statue published by USA Today reveals Cap standing with his iconic shield held high, above a plaque adorned with a quote from 2011 movie ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’.
With the audience for the second episode of the newly-revamped ‘Top Gear’ having dropped by a third – that’s a sturdy 1.6 million fewer viewers than the debut show – things haven’t kicked off the way new host Chris Evans might have hoped. Viewers and critics have noted that Evans’ 'shouty’ style of presenting has already started to grate, and even ex-host Jeremy Clarkson seemed to be taking a pop, tweeting about his new show: It was perhaps a return barb after Evans, on the first show, told the studio audience “By the way, we don’t talk about catering on this show any more”, a sly reference to Clarkson being sacked for having a fight with a producer over a steak and consequently being sacked.
‘Captain America: Civil War’ star Chris Evans has shared his thoughts on why Oscar-winner Brie Larson would be a great choice for ‘Captain Marvel’. When asked about the rumour that Brie Larson (this year’s Best Actress Oscar-winner for ‘Room’) would be the actor to play the role of Carol Danvers, a character heavily associated with the Avengers, Evans was keen on the idea.
On Sunday night Chris Evans might have noticed that his Twitter account was being deluged with abusive messages regarding his performance on ‘Top Gear’. Unfortunately, rather than these messages heading to the 50-year-old television presenter, a number of them were instead sent to the 34-year-old ‘Captain America: Civil War’ actor. While Marvel’s Chris Evans calls @ChrisEvans his home on Twitter, ‘Top Gear’s’ Chris Evans has the handle of @achrisevans.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that Chris Evans’ new series of ‘Top Gear’ is set to be the most controversial programme to ever grace your TV, judging by the almost daily stories emerging about its supposedly 'troubled’ route to our living rooms. You either love Chris Evans or you hate him. Feeding into the whole marmite business is the fact that Evans is being accused of bullying – exactly what Jeremy Clarkson was fired for, which makes for a bit of a perfect storm in terms of tabloid column inches.
