Real-life heroes do exist. And they look a lot like our fictional ones.

Scarlett Johansson has rallied her fellow Avengers (you might even say assembled) to participate in an event from which the proceeds would go toward relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

Marvel Stars Before They Were Famous

By the time we’re done with The Avengers 4 in 2019, there will have been 22 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only does Marvel Studios have a massive roster of movies, but they have an insanely huge cast that they have to bring together when it’s time for The Avengers to assemble and save the world from an impending threat.

Most of the superheroes in the MCU are quite recognizable names who had long careers before joining comic book movies like Robert Downey Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson, but others didn’t become household names until they starred in the Marvel movies in question. No matter how famous they are now thanks to the MCU, there was a time before these actors and actress were famous, and a new video highlights just what they were doing before you even knew who they were.

Chris Evans leaving Marvel

After the fourth Avengers film, Chris Evans‘ contract with Marvel is done. Whether it’ll be the last we see of the actor as Captain America, we’ll have to wait and see.

Chris Evans Escape Room Prank

Since Chris Evans plays Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, everyone assumes he’s a good guy. And since we’ve seen his visits to children’s hospitals suited up as Captain America, we can pretty much accept that as true. But that doesn’t mean Chris Evans doesn’t like to have some playful fun at the expense of his fans.

As part of a charity initiative at Omaze, the Captain America and Avengers franchises star took part in a little prank at a comic book ship in Boston, Massachusetts. Speaking through a big Captain America action figure, Chris Evans tries to get unsuspecting fans to participate in a makeshift Escape Room inside the comic book shop, and the results are pretty damn funny.

marc webb's gifted trailer starring chris evans

Before he made the critically slammed The Amazing Spider-Man films, director Marc Webb was a darling of the indie film world. A music video and commercial director who broke onto the movie scene with the fantastic 500 Days of Summer. He returned to the more moderately-budgeted world of dramatic films (read: less studio and producer meddling) and reuniting with Fox Searchlight for his next film Gifted.

Chris Evans (Captain America) stars as a single father raising a child prodigy played by Mckenna Grace (Independence Day: Resurgence, Designated Survivor) and the struggle for him to retain custody. The movie has an excellent cast which also includes Jenny Slate, Octavia Spencer, and Lindsay Duncan. Watch the Gifted trailer now embedded below.
