Chris Evans drops a plot detail about Captain America in Avengers: Age of Ultron

March 24th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr 2 Comments

In an interview with The Scotsman, it appears as if Chris Evans inadvertently revealed what may be an interesting plot detail about Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The actor let slip the fact that he’s been fitted up for a period jacket for Joss Whedon’s highly anticipated Avengers sequel. Click the link for above the full interview.

One jacket appears briefly at the start of The Winter Soldier, when former soldier Steve Rogers pays a visit to a present-day Captain America exhibition at the Smithsonian. “They were great jackets” he says enthusiastically. “I loved the fit and the look. One of them may even have come home with me.” And then he mentions that he’s just been measured up for another period jacket for his next Avengers film. Does that suggest the Captain will return to his past in the The Avengers: Age Of Ultron? Evans looks briefly agonized, realizing that he might be confirming an unauthorized plot detail ahead of that film’s 2015 release. “Maybe,” he says coyly.

Now some will jump to the conclusion that this means time travel like the comics, but Whedon has made it clear he just took the name from the comics not the story. This most likely is a flashback, we’ve previously heard that Black Widow’s past will come up in the sequel as well.

In a recent interview with IGN, Scarlett Johansson teased that her character will get quite a bit of back story in Age of Ultron:

“In Avengers 2 we go back..we definitely learn more about Widow’s back-story, and get to find out how she became the person you see. All of these characters have deep, dark pasts, and I think that the past catches up to some of us a little bit.”

The Whedon sequel stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, James Spader and Kim Soo-Hyun.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for release on May 1, 2015
