‘Captain America: Civil War’ Plot: Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige Says Story Is ‘Simple’; Chris Evans Calls It ‘A Family Dispute’

Posted by staff in Aug 27,2015 with No Comments

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige explains “Captain America: Civil War’s” plot.

Feige sat down with Zap2it and revealed that the second post credits scene in “Ant-Man” actually takes place in the middle of “Civil War,” and that it will “play a part at a cerain point in that film.”

He also compared “Avengers: Age of Ultron” which “had a lot going on” to the upcoming movie, which he reveals will actually be “simple.”

“Civil War’ is a relatively simple story,” Feige explained, adding the movie “is a surprisingly grounded story about two characters that most audience members have come to know and like and admire finding themselves on different sides of a political argument, like the country does on many occasions, and how they both respond to that.

“That’s the story. So it’s actually a very, very simple story, and then how their personal relationships fit into that.”

Franchise star Chris Evans also spoke about “Captain America: Civil War’s” plot and described it to be some sort of a “family” affair.

“We definitely have gloves on, but it’s more of a family dispute. That’s what’s so great about this movie and the characters and how they work together. It’s more so when you have a sibling rivalry,” Evans told IGN. “The reason people can relate to these characters so much is because they can relate to what they’re going through.”  Read the rest of this entry »

Chris Evans to narrate Patriots documentary ‘America’s Game’

Posted by staff in Aug 27,2015 with No Comments

Chris Evans of Sudbury will narrate “America’s Game,” the NFL Network’s story about the Patriots’ 2014 Super Bowl win, he said in a tweet Tuesday night. The show will air Sept. 8 at 10 p.m.

In the trailer for the show, Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski, and Devin McCourty all comment on the season as scenes from the Super Bowl play. A highlight is when Malcolm Butler’s game-winning interception is spliced together with Tom Brady emitting a high-pitched scream and jumping up and down. Evans’s voiceover does not appear.

“No matter what happens in the rest of your football career,” said McCourty, “you can say, ‘I was a Super Bowl champion, I felt the confetti fall on me.’”

Evans, best known for his role as Captain America in the “Avengers” movies, is somewhat of a Patriots superfan. He made a 2014 Super Bowl bet with Seattle fan Chris Pratt. When Pratt (and Seattle) lost, Pratt had to dress as his character from “Guardians of the Galaxy” — but sporting a Tom Brady jersey — and visit children at a Boston charity. Evans also appeared in Jimmy Kimmel’s “Locker Room Guy” video with other Boston-area celebrities, such as Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, mocking Deflategate. [Source]

Posted by staff in Jul 06,2015 with No Comments

While there hasn’t been any official yet, it seems like Spider-Man is indeed making his debut to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War.”

Or at least that’s what people are expecting following “Captain America 3” star Chris Evans’ post on Twitter.

HUGE congrats to @TomHolland1996!!! Well deserved. We’re lucky to have you.

While he did not specifically said that Tom Holland, who’s portraying role of the new Peter Parker aka Spider-Man following the deal made by Sony and Marvel, will appear in “Captain America: Civil War,” his statement could have just fueled the already rampant rumors about Holland’s debut.

Furthermore, Screen Rant confirmed the rumors involving Spider-Man and his appearance in the movie.

Apparently, “Captain America 3,” led by Chris Evans, will serve as Marvel’s way of introducing Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“So, as a surprise to no one who’s been following these developments, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker a.k.a. Spider-Man will in fact appear inCaptain America: Civil War,” Screen Rant claimed. Read the rest of this entry »

Chris Evans And Chris Pratt Visit Seattle Children’s Hospital

Posted by staff in Mar 09,2015 with No Comments

You might have thought that Chris Evans and Chris Pratt just played superheroes in the movies, but you would have been wrong. These guys really are superheroes.

After making the best Super Bowl bet ever, Captain America and Star-Lord decided that there would be no losers. In the original bet, Evans was supposed to visit Seattle Children’s Hospital if the Seattle Seahawks won, and Pratt was supposed to visit Christopher’s Haven in New England if the New England Patriots won.

After the Patriots won, Pratt quickly honored his portion of the bet and made a trip to Christopher’s Haven as Star-Lord with Chris Evans. And Evans announced that the duo would be visiting Seattle Children’s Hospital as well. [Source]

Chris Evans Talks Captain America & Iron Man’s Roles In Avengers: Age Of Ultron

Posted by staff in Mar 06,2015 with No Comments

In 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, S.H.I.E.L.D. was dismantled. Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark is filling the void by spending his on money to keep the team together. Tony is the money, but he needs Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) to handle the day-to-day operations.

“I think [Captain America] feels very comfortable in a sort of leadership role, but I don’t think he gives orders,” Evans told Yahoo. “He does structure, organization — he’s a military guy.

“Tony [Stark] is definitely paying the bills, and since there really is no company to report to, we’re kind of this independent unit that needs to rely on each other and work as a team, even in their day-to-day lives.”

For Evans, he’s excited about Avengers: Age Of Ultron because the action scenes require the superhero team working together as one, instead of each hero doing their own thing. “I like all the scenes that we get to have together,” Evans said. “In this movie, it’s not about having stand-out moments, it’s about trying to have stand-together moments. You want to have scenes where you’re like ‘Man, the Avengers just kicked ass!’”

“If it’s every man for himself, then it defeats the purpose of what this movie is. We have individual films for that. So I like the scenes where – as a unit – we’re all wrecking shop. And we get a bunch of those in this.”

Avengers: Age Of Ultron arrives in theaters May 1, 2015. [Source]
