Nerds: if you had to choose a way to die, what would it be? Beaten to a pulp by Captain America and Hawkeye, right? Well get ready to be jealous…
Two of the earth’s mightiest heroes chatted to RadioTimes.com about The Avengers: Age of Ultron, the future of the Marvel universe and how they want to smash my teeth in with Cap’s shield. What can I say? I have a way with people.
As well as the continuing adventures of Iron Man and the rest, Evans had some kind words to say about the rival Fantastic Four reboot. Before donning the star-spangled costume, Evans played Johnny ‘Human Torch’ Storm in the 2005 film, a role now taken by Michael B. Jordan.
“I actually can’t wait to see it,” Evans said magnanimously. “Our movies were very specific, and my take on the character was very specific, so it’s going to be interesting to see what he does with it.”
With persistent rumours of Evans letting another actor take up Captain America’s shield, Evans seemed comfortable with the idea of reboots and recastings:
“That’s the beautfiul thing about these characters,” he explained, “whether it’s Batman or Superman…”
…or Captain America?
“…or Captain America, which I’m sure at some point someone else will play. It’s like James Bond, someone else is always going to reincarnate them and play them a different way. That’s great to be a part of the lineage. It’s not yours to keep, it never was.”
The Avengers: Age of Ultron is released in UK cinemas today
