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.

When Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced Avengers: Infinity War, it was positioned as a two-film epic crossover event that would be the culmination of everything Marvel had planned up to that point. So with both films about to start shooting concurrently, I thought it might be fun to take a look at all the characters confirmed or rumored to be part of Avengers: Infinity War, and theorize how they may play into this story.

Having spent the past five years playing Marvel’s nicest superhero, Chris Evans about to get in touch with his dark side. Zombieland‘s Ruben Fleischer has just been set to direct Evans in Jekyll, based on the 2007 BBC One miniseries about a modern-day descendant of Robert Louis Stevenson‘s classic split-personality character.

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.

Marvel Studios has helped make lots of comic book characters even more popular than they ever were before hitting the big screen. That means plenty of people are aware that Captain America is a mantle that hasn’t always been taken up by Steve Rogers. There have been a variety of storylines that have seen Steve Rogers taken out of the equation, opening the door for either Sam Wilson (aka Falcon) or Bucky Barnes (aka the Winter Soldier) to become Captain America. But is that something that can happen in the movies?
Many fans have started to speculate that Captain America will be one of the superheroes that finally bites the dust when Avengers: Infinity War or Avengers 4, taking Chris Evans out of the red, white and blue, and allowing Anthony Mackie or Sebastian Stan to pick up the shield. Now Kevin Feige has confirmed that it’s possible, at least in theory. Read More »

Captain America: Civil War was a somber affair, and understandably so — the film rocked the very notion of the Avengers to its very core by pitting hero against hero and friend against friend. It was downright heartbreaking to see Steve and Tony come to blows despite their own best efforts to reach a common ground, and then to see the rest of the Avengers forced to pick sides.
But behind the scenes, it was a whole other story. With the film’s home video release just around the corner, Marvel Studios has released the Civil War blooper reel, and it’s silly, endearing stuff. Captain America may be going through some heavy stuff, but Chris Evans is enjoying the hell out of himself, and Sebastian Stan smiles more in these few minutes than Bucky probably has in the past 70 years. Scarlett Johansson‘s tough action hero schtick gets undermined by faulty equipment, and Robert Downey Jr. just can’t help getting in a snarky remark or two. Anthony Mackie, Jeremy Renner, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, and Martin Freeman all make appearances as well. Read More »
Robert Downey Jr. landed a huge paycheck for Captain America: Civil War. The actor, whose contract had expired before the Captain America sequel, was reportedly paid $40 million upfront and a significant back end fee. This enormous payday, however, almost didn’t happen, so directors Anthony and Joe Russo and all involved had to consider other stories to tell. What was another story that was a viable option for the filmmakers? Cap taking on zombies or, as Joe puts it, infected people that are similar to zombies.
Below, learn more about an early Captain America 3 zombie storyline.

The film will hit Digital HD on September 2nd and Blu-ray and DVD on September 13th, and you can rewatch that airport brawl over and over again. However, one moment in the movie may be a little harder to swallow now that we know what it means for the future of one of the characters.

Hollywood has been getting plenty of flack, and justifiably so, for the whitewashing of roles that should be meant for actors and actresses of different ethnic backgrounds. From Gods of Egypt to most recently Ghost in the Shell, plenty of minorities, especially the actors within these groups, are upset at the lack of diversity in mainstream Hollywood. Therefore, some might not be happy with the proposed concept art for a live-action adaptation of Akira that has been circulating.
Concept artist Ruairi Robinson was once working on one of the many iterations of the gestating live-action adaptation of the classic manga that Hollywood has been trying to get off the ground for years. In a couple pieces that have surfaced online, Captain America franchise star Chris Evans and Looper star Joseph Gordon-Levitt were depicted in the lead roles as Kaneda and Tetsuo respectively.

In 2011, audiences started learning pretty quickly who Chris Evans was when he appeared on the big screen as the title superhero in Captain America: The First Avenger. But before that, he already had a solid career as an actor with roles in the Fantastic Four franchise, as well as other not-so-great movies such as Cellular. Thankfully, there were some good movies like Sunshine, The Losers and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World before that too.
However, just a few years before Chris Evans really launched his big screen career with Not Another Teen Movie in 2001, he was just another kid begging to get a foot into the door of the entertainment industry. And now we have some evidence of where Evans was hoping to start with the cover letter he sent to various companies back in 1998, attempting to get an internship.
