WATCH: Chris Evans talks Winter Soldier, happy Cap is no longer a boy scout

March 19th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

HitFix recently spoke with Chris Evans about his third time playing Captain America.

Evans says he was excited when he found out Rogers was actually going to have some real conflict to deal with this time around:

“You know, in the first couple films, you know, in the first ‘Captain America’ he’s such a Boy Scout and he’s just so ready and willing to put everyone else in front of him and that’s kind of the nature of his character,” Evans says. “And in ‘Avengers’ you have so many characters to address it’s hard to kind of have any too much of a personal arc.  In this movie, they gave him some hurdles.  I think the most difficult thing with Captain America is being such a good man.  Being a guy who refuses to bleed on people.  It can be a challenge trying to find a dynamic storyline.  And so in this one I think they really gave him some conflict.”

He also confirms a new costume for Avengers: Age of Ultron, you can watch the full interview below.

The story of Captain America: The Winter Soldier picks up where Marvel’s The Avengers left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington D.C.

The Anthony and Joe Russo directed film stars Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Scarlet Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Hayley Atwell, Maximiliano Hernández, Robert Redford, and Georges St-Pierre.

The movie hits theaters on March 26th, 2014 in the UK and on April 4th in the US.
