“Captain America 3” stars actor Chris Evans in the titular role once again. He’s played the role of the superhero in numerous films within the Marvel Universe yet the actor revealed he initially said no to the offer to take on the iconic character onscreen.
Chris Evans appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Entertainment Weekly reported. He may have hinted at his secret desire to play a Disney prince. Kimmel quizzed the “Captain America 3” cast on trivia about each other, the publication noted. Their Q&A revealed an interesting personal tidbit about Captain America.
Sebastian Stan, who plays Bucky, answered personal trivia about Evans. Stan disclosed that Captain America is a fan of “The Little Mermaid.” Stan claims that Evans even knows the lyrics of the Disney movie. However, Evans’ one-on-one interview with Kimmel was a greater revelation. Gamespot cited excerpts from the segment.
“I was scared,” he told Kimmel. Evans explained his initial fear about signing up to play Captain America. However, without Evans, would the Captain America franchise be as successful?
“At first, it was some nine-picture contract, and there are parts of me that have a little bit of social anxiety with this industry and doing movies one at a time, if all the sudden you decide you don’t want to do them anymore, you’re afforded the opportunity to take a step back and recalibrate,” Evans said. In 2014, Evans spoke about directing after his Marvel contract. He revealed to Variety his intention to “retire from being in front of the camera.”
His upcoming movie, “Captain America: Civil War,” hits theatres on May 6, 2016. Evans is busy with promotions. Recently, he attended the MTV Movie Awards to debut its latest teaser.
