After finding out this morning that the next trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron is coming Thursday night during the series premiere of American Crime at 10 p.m. (9 Central) on ABC, the news just keeps rolling in. (We daresay it’s “assembling” except we won’t because boooo.) First, there was the group poster, then the Iron Man poster, then the Hulk poster, then Thor / Black Widow / Nick Fury, then Hawkeye, and now Chris Evans has tweeted the Captain America poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron.
This coincides with Marvel lifting their embargo on an interview Chris Evans gave on the set last June. The full interview is over at /film, but here’s the quote from Evans which caught our attention:
“With the second Captain America we really pushed the envelope in terms of what this guy is capable of which I was excited to see. Because in the first Captain America he’s just strong. In Avengers it was still, in my opinion, a little bit punch, punch, kick, kick. You just can’t be Jason Bourne. We gotta see this guy do stuff that’s like yeah, he deserves a spot on this squad. You know, in [Winter Soldier] he’s pinballing off of jets and doing unbelievable things. I don’t wanna take a step back so we gotta make sure that he’s continuing training. His fight style needs to advance a little bit. I don’t wanna go full Bruce Lee, but there needs to be more than just haymakers and fun kicks. There needs to be a consistent display of strength. Utilize your environment in a way that’s like, “that’s right he can pick up a motorcycle with one hand…” Let’s, let’s not forget that I can get punched by a human and get knocked down. It just doesn’t make sense to me. So that’s the only thing and that’s a tough thing to try to remember. You know, even in Avengers, you know, I punched a heavy bag across a room. If I hit a person he’s not getting back up. It’s just the way it’s gonna go, so we can’t do this any other way.”
Oh, he’s definitely earned his spot on the team.
