Chris Evans twice rejected the role of Steve Rogers before he was eventually persuaded to take over the role of the actor's Hollywood Reporter which became known this week, apparently "an encouraging call" from Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., who eventually made him " Yes. "
" The offer felt like the epitome of temptation to me, "Evans said." The ultimate job offer of the highest caliber, I'm not supposed to say no to this thing, it felt like it was the right thing. "Marvel continued knocking on his door, taking him on a studio tour and pushing the nine-movie pledge to six, but it was not until Robert Downey Jr. contacted him that he considered seriously.
Evans finally decided on a suit and immediately sought out a therapist to help him make that important life decision (he revealed in an interview that he still loves the therapy and leaves whenever he can, even if nothing bothers him disturbs).
Evans's profile also contained some quotes from Downey Jr., who thought about a decade of collaboration. "I've been in hundreds of scenes with this guy," he said. "Nobody laughs more than he does. Sometimes he makes me self-confident, for example, "Should I make more fun?" There is a bit of, just to get rid of the fear. And I have also seen him in the last 10 years, from someone who had ridiculously real social anxiety, to someone who has always felt more comfortable in his own skin.
Downey Jr. also talked about what he said was that Evans is an ideal actor for the role of Captain America. "At the root he has true humility," he said. "I think that's why he somehow got to the top and is our team leader in the Avengers, and I think many of his theater experiences helped as well, because" Okay, I'm leaving. "Get dressed, I'll go out and I'll tell the truth." It's a kind of old-school Spencer Tracy, though I guarantee that Spencer Tracy would never have put that attraction on. "
And just as Downey Jr. says, Evans' commitment to his accomplishment not only helped establish the fantastic stories they told, but also enabled them all that came after MCU.
"[Evans’] Suspension of his own unbelief, regardless of the doubts he had, is the reason why all these other worlds can be built," he said. "Starting with Avengers and then Guardians and Black Panther People love to say – and I eat it – somehow the forerunners of this whole universe If you want to talk about team building and you want to speak of the most successful creative relay race in the history of cinema, it was the decisive step. " It certainly sounds as if Evans and Downey Jr. have an equally deep friendship Even though they are less plagued by complicated backstories, all of them mean we'll both miss them when they're likely to bow out of the MCU and follow Avengers: Endgame.
