Chris Evans Talks Captain America, New Pic


The LATimes has a new article on “Captain America: The First Avenger”, that features interviews with star Chris Evans and director Joe Johnston. Nothing is revealed that you don’t already know, but the article does come with a brand spanking new image of Evans as Steve Rogers. Check out the new pic above. Who says you can’t get a cab when you need one?

An excerpt from the article, where Evans talks about the film’s special effects, in particular the effects that put his head on a scrawny version of Steve Rogers (which, personally, I thought was fantastically done):

Evans knows that fans and bloggers zeroed in on the frail Rogers sequence in their criticism of the first trailer, but he said the ongoing visual-effects work is like a sculpting process and those scenes will deliver in the finished film. “They nailed it, it works, they really put a lot of time into it. It was a big relief for me.”

Really? I didn’t hear that much criticism of the “scrawny” effects from those mean ol bloggers. Wonder what the LATimes are reading.

Captain America wins WWII July 22, 2011.

    I think that his face should have been sunken in a little more in that scene making him more sickly looking but otherwise it was good.

      It’s post transformation. He’s a supersoldier now. The excerpt is just talking about the efx used for scrawny Steve. LOL. And again using a makeshift shield.

        Y’know what’s funny? The other day there was an article on one of the sites with a few new pics of Evans from the scene in Times Square with Jackson. One person left a comment about how Evans resembles Sam Rockwell in one of the pics. I just watched the trailer again to see what people may have had a problem with regarding the “scrawny Steve” CGI (which I think looks damn good!). Upon watching the trailer again for the hundreth time I noticed that in the one scene (49 seconds in) where Steve is in the line-up in front of Col. Phillips, Tommy Lee Jones’ character, he looks exactly like Rockwell!!!
