As the new face of Marvel’s star-spangled superhero Captain America, Chris Evans is likely to play a major role in not only “The First Avenger: Captain America,” but also in the 2012 superhero team-up film “The Avengers.” Comic book fans know soldier-turned-superhero Steve Rogers as the character who unites many of Marvel’s most prominent heroes against a threat too great for them to tackle individually — but does Evans know that?
MTV News caught up with the actor, who also plays Jensen in director Sylvain White’s upcoming adaptation of the action series “The Losers,” during this weekend’s WonderCon to find out if he’s intimidated by the prospect of giving orders to “Iron Man” star Robert Downey Jr. when it comes time for “The Avengers.”
“I don’t know if they’re going to make him the boss,” Evans said of Cap’s role in “The Avengers.”
“His character… He’s a good guy,” he added.
Presented with the notion of his character leading Marvel’s team of superheroes that includes Iron Man and Thor (among others), Evans seemed a bit uncertain that Cap will be the boss when Earth’s Mightiest Heroes take the screen.
“Does he [run the show]?” asked Evans. “I don’t think anybody tells Downey what to do, and that’s what makes [him] Downey.”
Finally, Evans added that he hasn’t tried on the costume or shield yet, but he’s looking forward to donning Cap’s red, white and blue uniform.
