Chris Evans stars as Steve Rogers, the 98-pound weakling who, thanks to a super soldier serum turns into a WWII freedom fighter in Captain America: The First Avenger.
The film opens Friday, and Evans will also return as Captain America in The Avengers. During a recent interview, the actor talked about the challenge of playing Captain America in The Avengers (at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger, our hero is informed by Nick Fury that his body has been frozen for over 70 years).
“Well he is who he is,” says Evans about Steve Rogers. “That’s kind of why he got picked for the serum. I think he has a very clear cut sense of his morals and values and who he is. But there certainly is an adjustment process to modern day. I think part of Cap’s appeal is that he presents this old way of thinking…I think Cap comes from a place where things were a little bit more wholesome and sincere and direct and modern day to him feels like a little bit more flash, style, and that’s not who he is.”
