Posted by staff in Jul 06,2015 with No Comments

While there hasn’t been any official yet, it seems like Spider-Man is indeed making his debut to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War.”

Or at least that’s what people are expecting following “Captain America 3″ star Chris Evans’ post on Twitter.

While he did not specifically said that Tom Holland, who’s portraying role of the new Peter Parker aka Spider-Man following the deal made by Sony and Marvel, will appear in “Captain America: Civil War,” his statement could have just fueled the already rampant rumors about Holland’s debut.

Posted by staff in Mar 09,2015 with No Comments

You might have thought that Chris Evans and Chris Pratt just played superheroes in the movies, but you would have been wrong. These guys really are superheroes.

After making the best Super Bowl bet ever, Captain America and Star-Lord decided that there would be no losers. In the original bet, Evans was supposed to visit Seattle Children’s Hospital if the Seattle Seahawks won, and Pratt was supposed to visit Christopher’s Haven in New England if the New England Patriots won.

After the Patriots won, Pratt quickly honored his portion of the bet and made a trip to Christopher’s Haven as Star-Lord with Chris Evans. And Evans announced that the duo would be visiting Seattle Children’s Hospital as well. [Source]

Chris Evans Talks Captain America & Iron Man’s Roles In Avengers: Age Of Ultron

Posted by staff in Mar 06,2015 with No Comments

In 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, S.H.I.E.L.D. was dismantled. Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark is filling the void by spending his on money to keep the team together. Tony is the money, but he needs Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) to handle the day-to-day operations.

“I think [Captain America] feels very comfortable in a sort of leadership role, but I don’t think he gives orders,” Evans told Yahoo. “He does structure, organization — he’s a military guy.

“Tony [Stark] is definitely paying the bills, and since there really is no company to report to, we’re kind of this independent unit that needs to rely on each other and work as a team, even in their day-to-day lives.”

For Evans, he’s excited about Avengers: Age Of Ultron because the action scenes require the superhero team working together as one, instead of each hero doing their own thing. “I like all the scenes that we get to have together,” Evans said. “In this movie, it’s not about having stand-out moments, it’s about trying to have stand-together moments. You want to have scenes where you’re like ‘Man, the Avengers just kicked ass!’”

“If it’s every man for himself, then it defeats the purpose of what this movie is. We have individual films for that. So I like the scenes where – as a unit – we’re all wrecking shop. And we get a bunch of those in this.”

Avengers: Age Of Ultron arrives in theaters May 1, 2015. [Source]

He’s a superhero off-screen, too.

Chris Evans, best known as Hollywood’s Captain America, made the world a better place for one boy in particular on Monday – thrilling 9-year-old Kenny Botting, who’s battling a brain tumor, with a surprise visit to his Boston care center.

Botting received an autograph and gifts from Evans, and took pictures with him, WBZ-TV reports. The boy then took the action star, 33, on a tour of the facility, which is called Christopher’s Haven.

“It’s their strength that gives me strength. No matter what hurdles are in my life, it’s nothing compared to what these families go through, so any way I can bring a smile, it’s worth it,” said Evans.

The actor hails from Sudbury, Massachusetts, and is in town for an event at Fenway Park to raise money for Christopher’s Haven.

“I am more than happy,” Botting said. “I just want to say thank thanks for coming.” [Source]
