Joss Whedon’s Avengers Assemble hits cinemas on April 26 and Chris Evans who reprises his role of Steve Rogers aka Captain America has revealed that he greatly admires his character.
Speaking to Flicks and Bits, Evans said he truly respects Rogers’s drive to live up to heroic ideals revealing “I love the character, Steve Rogers, he’s everything I wish I could be as a man, you know? He’s good for the sake of good, and that’s a fun character to try to portray.”
Steve Rogers is thawed out in Avengers Assemble to find a world he doesn’t know or understand and Evans explains that one of the key themes in the highly anticipated film is how Rogers deals with culture once he arrives in the present day explaining “The world around him is a different place. He’s from a different era and I think that era really defines who is, I think the modern day is a bit more flash and stylish, it’s a bit more selfish, a bit more impersonal. There’s a lot of technologies that put blocks between people.
In the ’40s there’s maybe a bit more of a direct, honest, sincerity to the way people behaved. I think human interaction breeds manners, you know? This is a world Steve Rogers isn’t quite accustomed to, it’s a different world that he has to get used to.
I think with The Avengers, even more than in Captain America: The First Avenger, Steve Rogers has some issues, some conflicts and some trouble with the fact that he is a man out of time. But he puts that second and the mission first. He’s selfless.”
Avengers Assemble hits cinemas on April 26 and features Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Paul Bettany, Gwyneth Paltrow, Stellan Skarsgård, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg and Jenny Agutter. [Source]
