Chris Evans picks his favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe hero and surprisingly it isn’t Captain America. The actor notoriously portrayed Steve Rogers in the franchise for nearly a decade, making his launching in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger and also carrying the shield throughout the Infinity Saga. Nonetheless, at the end of the MCU’s Phase 3, he passed the mantle on Anthony Mackie’s Falcon.
Ever since finishing up his arc as Captain America in Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: Endgame, Evans has been hectic branching off and also trying various other duties outside the comics flick sandbox. He has appeared in Rian Johnson’s Knives Out as well as is reuniting with the Russos in the upcoming Netflix movie The Gray Man. In both flicks he plays the villain– a 180-degree turn from his function as Captain America. Most lately, however, he plays the human character that Toy Story’s Buzz Lightyear is based on in Pixar’s Lightyear. As he walks around promoting his most recent flick, Evans has unsurprisingly been asked inquiries about the MCU.
In a lightning round during his guest look on the D23 Podcast, Evans is quizzed regarding his favorite MCU character. Surprisingly, despite playing Captain America for practically 10 years as well as being precious in the duty, he doesn’t pick his very own personality.
In lots of means Iron Man as well as Captain America could not be any kind of more different from each other. This is why they often clashed when choosing the next training course of activity for the Avengers, as evidenced by their varying point of views on the Sokovia Accords in Captain America: Civil War. Because they are typically paired up together, Evans has a front-row seat to Downey’s work in bringing his Avenger to life, so he’s certainly acquainted with the personality he singled out as his top choice.
Evans has actually formerly chosen Downey as the various other MCU star that he would certainly intend to swap characters with, showing that he has constantly had a soft spot for Iron Man. Also amidst the discussion in Captain America: Civil War, when asked in a meeting, the star selected Team Iron Man over his very own Team Captain America. It does look like the star has a fondness for even more morally-ambiguous as well as fun personalities as Evans lately chose Loki as the MCU bad guy he would like to play.
