Aside from lending his voice to a few episodes of Robot Chicken, Chris Evans hasn’t appeared on a TV series since popping up in the pilot episode of the quickly-cancelled 2003 drama Skin.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is one of the best sequels in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Directors Anthony & Joe Russo brought Captain America into political thriller territory that called back to classic movies like The Conversation, Three Days of the condor, All the President’s Men, The Manchurian Candidate and more.
Despite pulling from classic thrillers and master filmmakers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier still has that comic book spectacle and style, and one of the most satisfying sequences is undoubtedly the elevator fight between Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and nearly a dozen SHIELD (Hydra) agents. A new video has recently surfaced online showing a bit of the rehearsal process that allowed Chris Evans to take down all these formidable foes, and it should come as no surprise how meticulously planned these sequences are.
