Chris Evans is Captain America, but there’s another actor out there who might be better-suited for the part.
Recently, a photoshopped image of “Community” actress Alison Brie as Captain America created by Fan Art Exhibit found its way online — and onto Brie’s radar. The actress spoke with MTV News all about the “Captain America” picture at Sundance, and also spoke to rumors that she might have an actual part in the upcoming sequel.
“Many, many a person have sent this to me on Twitter, actually,” Brie said of the photo, pictured below. “I’m impressed with the abs. I’m down with it. Are you kidding? I love it. I’m going to go break Chris Evans’ kneecap, because obviously the second-best person to step into that role is me.”
Brie might not have to break any kneecaps to get a role in “The Winter Soldier,” as she’s already rumored for one of the film’s leads. For now, her lips are sealed on the prospect. “But I wouldn’t be opposed to it,” she said.
As for the directors of “Captain America,” Joe and Anthony Russo, Brie had nothing but glowing reviews for the sibling filmmakers — and she should know, having worked with the pair on numerous “Community” episodes.
“I’m excited that they’re going to do it,” she shared. “I think they’re going to bring something different to it. I love the Russo brothers. I just adore them. I think they’re incredible. Everything they do is incredible. It’ll be a nice change for those Marvel superhero movies, to have a fresh take on it.”
