Posted on 26 April 2011 by TH3 No08

RUMOR: Chris Evans Being Considered For Lead Role In The Bourne Legacy!

Posted on 04 March 2011 by Christian

The latest rumor surrounding upcoming Bourne movie (sans Matt Damon as Jason Bourne) is that Captain America: The First Avenger star Chris Evans is the favorite to play the lead character…

I’m not sure about you guys, but a Bourne movie WITHOUT Jason Bourne just does not sit right with me. After recent reports listed several well known actors who were said to be in the running to replace Matt Damon in this film (none of who excited me that much) a rumor has emerged today that points at Captain America himself being favourite to star in The Bourne Legacy!

Sources tell Think McFly Think Evans is being considered by Universal for The Bourne Legacy. Word is they’re seeing big fat dollar signs with Captain America (that Superbowl TV spot went over like gangbusters and we should be getting the trailer soon) and writer/director Tony Gilroy likes what he’s seen from Evans’ past performances.

Replacing Matt Damon is proving to be a [female dog], and having a hot actor coming off a hit movie would help ease audiences into this new Bourne-absent installment. That’s why those rumblings of Shia LaBeouf’s candidacy, even Tobey Maguire, make perfect sense and Evans’ schedule will be clear after The Avengers wraps and well before any Captain America sequel.

What do you guys think about this? With The Bourne Legacy expected to be released sometime in the Summer of 2012, they’d need to start filming almost right after Evans finishes work on The Avengers – a busy schedule for the actor, but it could easily be done. Be sure to share your thoughts on this news in the usual place!

Full Captain America: The First Avenger Teaser To Air This Week?

Posted on 04 January 2011 by Christian

Rumour has it that Entertainment tonight will be showing a longer teaser for their behind-the-scenes Captain America set visit sometime within the next few days…

Despite speculation pointing to Entertainment Tonight not releasing more Captain America footage possibly for weeks, as late as next month, or even during the Superbowl. Well, Just Jared are reporting that we’ll see it a lot sooner than expected.

The 29-year-old actor will be featured in a teaser video for Captain America: The First Avenger later this week on the entertainment news show.

It’s not clear whether this will be footage of the actual movie, as they did before releasing the full Green Lantern trailer, or a mixture of that and behind the scenes footage as they did when they teased their visit to the set of Thor last year. I’m going to guess that it’s the latter mainly because that didnt look like actual movie footage in the 6 second video which was revealed online a few days ago. Be sure to share your thoughts on this in the usual place!

Captain America: The First Avenger is set to be released in 3D on July 22, later this year!

Chris Evans Talks Preparation for Captain America & The Avengers Movies

Posted on 20 December 2010 by Christian

The actor behind the mask of the first avenger in both Captain America & the highly anticipated Avengers films answers questions gathered as preparation. Check it out!

Courtesy of my buddy, RealIronMan from Spidermedia, in the latest issue of Wizard Magazine is an in-depth Q&A session with actor Chris Evans, whose wrapped on the much-anticipated Captain America: The First Avenger, and prepping for the highly-anticipated Avengers film.

Comic book fans are particularly protective of Captain America. He is after all supposed to be the physical and moral pinnacle of humanity. Does that shield feel heavy under all that pressure?
As far as the physicality goes, that comes from the serum, and I think special effects will help me carry the load. As far as who he is as a man, the reason he’s chosen for this experiment is because he has a pure heart. It’s the morality, the nobility. He’s a real redeeming character to play, it’s exciting to think of playing him. I actually have a friend of mine who I’m modeling the character after. This guy is actually an Eagle Scout, he’s one of those guys who stayed in the Boy Scouts all the way until he was 18. He’s just a good human being. He does the right things, he’s open, he’s honest, he’s sincere, he’s selfless. It’s something that I think everyone aspires to. A lot of time I play characters who don’t have any redeeming quality [Laughing].

Besides Captain America, you also played the Human Torch in “Fantastic Four,” and “The Losers” is also based on a comic; have you had any close encounters with rabid fans?
It’s great so far, They’re so entusiastic. They want the product [to be] as good as you want the project to be. These guys live and die for it. It reminds you why you make these movies. These people want it to be good so desperatly, that you so desperatly want to give them what they’re looking for. The last time at WonderCon, we were in the middle of an interview, and I had to run to the bathroom. I raced around the corner and I threw open the bathroom door and as I was walked in, I literally bumped right into a Stormtrooper. It was the funniest thing in the world. He just washed his hands, and he picked up his helmet and blaster. It was awesome. I just laughed the whole time I was in the bathroom.

But when the casting was announced, there was positive and negative reaction. Did you keep an eye on the comments?
I can understand if fans are wondering. That’s okay. I’m obviously taking their concerns to consideration, but I can’t get too swept into it, otherwise I’ll start beating myself up and losing my confidence.

What is it knowing your going to go from a hige blockbuster like “Captain America” to an even more mammoth blockbuster in “The Avengers”?
When I was deciding whether or not to jump on board on “Captain America,” that certainly came into consideration. Well if I do “Captain America,” in a few months, I’m going to get to work with [Robert] Downey Jr. and Samuel l. Jackson and all these amazing actors. That’s a dream. But I’m trying not to get ahead of myself.

Before “The Avengers” you worked on ensembles with “Losers” and “Fantastic Four.” How do you function as part of a team?
It’s just nice having a group of people to prepare with and rehearse with and come to set every day and bounce things off of. it’s always nicer to play a back and forth game when you’re trying to act.

The Losers” looked like it was a physically insense shoot. Did you get a chance to do any of your own stunts?
There was one scene when my character does this Parkour thing up a building and I thought great, I’ve always wanted to mess around with that. The stunt guy showed me a little video of it right when I got to Puerto Rico, kind of the idea of what he was thinking. I said, this is great, let me know when we’re going to shoot this and I’ll give this a whirl. We got to that day and I was stretching and I was all ready: I got my little pads on. I walked on to the set, and I said, “Okay can the stuntman just show me what he’s doing just once.” And then the stuntman just scaled up this building-and I said, “Okay I’ll be in my trailer. Good luck guys, I’m going to have nothing to do with that. I don’t know who the hell thought I was thinking I could touch my toes a few times and then go out there and scale a building.

Danny Boyle, who directed you in 2007′s “Sunshine,” said that you were an incredibly underappreciated talent. But do you feel that’s about to change with “Captain America” and “The Avengers”?
I am definitely optimistic about the films that are coming out. I think it’s no secret that I’ve been a part of a few films that have missed the mark. And it’s upsetting when that happens. It’s upsetting working as hard as you can in your respective field given the fact that a film has all these difference creative elements to it and you can only do so much with what you are expected to do. And it’s a disappointment when a film comes out and it’s not what you hoped it would be. There’s really no formula: I’ve seen a lot of movies that I would have gladly walked out of the theater that made hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office.

While Joe Johnston directs Captain America: The First Avenger into theaters July 22, next year, director Joss Whedon assembles The Avengers on May 4, 2012. And filming begins early next year. What do you think?
