Paramount Pictures provides this interview video with Chris Evans, the star of the comic book-inspired action film, Captain America. Evans fully realizes what starring in a comic book movie means (his credits include Fantastic Four and its sequel), and he knows just how protective comic book fans are of their favorite characters. Evans talks about that, the appeal of playing Steve Rogers/Captain America, the source material, and being directed by Joe Johnston in this interview. Captain America hits theaters on July 22, 2011 and stars Evans, Hugo Weaving, Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stan, Dominic Cooper, Stanley Tucci, and Tommy Lee Jones.
The Plot: Captain America: The First Avenger will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America. As Captain America, Rogers joins forces with Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) to wage war on the evil HYDRA organization, led by the villainous Red Skull (Hugo Weaving).
