With the release of “Captain America: The First Avenger” only two weeks away, MTV News is excited to announce that star Chris Evans will be sitting down with our own Josh Horowitz to premiere an exclusive clip of the film and talk about the movie for the latest installment of “MTV First” next Thursday night.
After the clip airs on MTV and MTV.com at 7:56 p.m. ET, Evans will stick around and chat for 30 minutes about the Marvel flick. Of course, we know you have plenty you’re dying to know about the comic book adaptation, so submit your questions on MTV.com or through Twitter, tweeting @MTVNews with the hashtag #AskChris. You can also upload a 20- to 30-second video with your questions for the “Captain America” star at Your.MTV.com.
With “MTV First: Captain America” happening only a week before the film premieres, expect plenty of probing questions about how terrifying Hugo Weaving looked in his Red Skull make up and what it was like holding Captain America’s shield for the first time. And since the shooting of “The Avengers” is under way, we’ll certainly make sure Evans tells us everything he can about Joss Whedon’s foray into the Marvel universe.
When MTV News visited the set of “Captain America” last year, he spoke about how he based the superhero on a good friend of his, giving us a glimpse into how personally he was taking the role.
“He’s just a good man who does the right thing,” Evans said of his friend. “He wouldn’t even tell a white lie. He’s not pious, not condescending; he just wants to do the good thing. His morals are intact. I’m amazed that people like him exist. Even his demeanor is very noble and honorable, and he is Captain America to me.”
