As CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER Turns 10, We Dip Into The Archives For Our Interview With Chris Evans

If you were ever curious about Chris Evans' views on signing up to star as Steve Rogers in Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger just before the film came out, you’ve come to the right place.

This year marks the 10thanniversary of Captain America: The First Avenger, and to celebrate we’ve turned to the archives and pulled this audio interview with actor Chris Evans conducted just before the film was released.

As such, it’s an opportunity to get an assessment of how the actor viewed the character, how he anticipated his life would change, just how much he hated the idea of losing his anonymity as he began living life in the public spotlight, and his feelings on the “controversy” over the fact that he had previously played the Human Torch in a pair of Fantastic Four movies (which seems pretty silly in retrospect).

“I honestly look at the movies as I would any other movies,” he says, addressing the latter point. “I know they’re obviously Marvel and that they’re both superheroes with abilities, but I look at them just as characters. Just a person I’m portraying who has his own issues and his own character traits, and it doesn’t really hit any strange bells for me just because it’s under the same Marvel umbrella.”

On the fear of his life changing, he adds, “I think I was saying no at first because I was so scared. It’s daunting, it’s a lot of responsibility and it’s very life-changing in ways that I wasn’t sure I wanted my life to change. It just took a while to be comfortable with it. And then I said to myself, ‘You know, Chris, you can’t say no to this because you’re scared. That’s no way to live life and you just have to go for it.’”
