“Captain America: The First Avenger” arrives in theaters this July and even the star, Chris Evans, has yet to see the whole film. Still, he said he’s seen parts of it — and what he’s witnessed has made him proud.
MTV News recently spoke with the actor as part of our Summer Movie Preview Week, and he gushed about what he’s seen of “Captain America” so far, but didn’t want to jinx anything, since he hasn’t been privy to the final, entire cut of the film.
“I’ve seen quite a bit. I’ve not seen the full cut,” he said. “Everything I see, I really like. I don’t like jinxing things. Individual scenes in a vacuum can be misleading. But I will say this: every single individual scene that I’ve seen, I’ve loved.”
Evans admitted that he initially felt trepidation about taking on the role, and that he was indeed a little overwhelmed at his San Diego Comic-Con panel last year. However, he said his fear turned into love for the part.
“It did gearshift. You know, I was pretty nervous [at first],” he said. “I remember the first time I went to a fitting and I put on the suit. I just was so terrified, so focused on the negatives st I’m not quite sure when it turned — sometime this year. I bet when I was at that Comic-Con I was probably still terrified.”
“I look back now — I can’t believe I almost didn’t do it,” he continued. “I can’t believe I almost didn’t do it. For better or worse, no matter what happens with the film and whether it’s a good film or not, it was the right thing to do and I’m glad I did it.”
