    Never realized how entertaining it is to just listen to Chris talk.

    • Alex Connor says:

      I miss these kind of interviews with marvel actors. The o.g squad was so nice and friendly. Now the new people hate us fans. We need cap back

    • Malik Evans says:

      That’s what’s he’s doing all of his movies….did you mean interviews l? Because he in all his movies

    • Alex Connor says:

      @Malik Evans no bro. I mean marvel actors as a whole entity. Look at pre infinity war interviews with any marvel actor. They were so fun.

    • Malik Evans says:

      @alexconnor8961  ohhh okay kinda confused me a little lol

    • dpants5150 says:

      There are a bunch of these same videos with other actors and they’re all pretty cool to see. Cool to hear about what these people think about the roles they’ve done.

  2. Tom Hampton says:

    It goes underappreciated how much talent it takes to play a character like Johnny Storm and have a switch up like playing Captain America and not have one role mar the perception of the other. The time gap in between movies helped but I remember at the time of him being casted as Cap there was a lot of worry and complaints that he couldn’t do it because of the perception of playing a role like Johnny in technically the same comic universe.

    • Alex Schneider says:

      Whenever I hear him speak he seems calm, not funny as he said himself, and very strong willed, more like the cap than anything else. I am surprised he could do all those other buffoon roles and fit so well in them. This guy can play anything.

    • Victor says:

      It weirded me out for a while seeing Chris Evans play Captain America bc I was so used to seeing him play Johnny Storm lol. And they’re polar opposites in personality. What’s ironic though is in the comics Johnny Storm and the Fantastic Four are the ones that actually found Cap in the ice

    • Light Up says:

      No offense to Evans. He is a decent actor. But his roles were mainly teen dramas and superheroes. Those films don’t really take a whole lot of acting range and skills. I would love to see him in more demanding roles like his protagonist role in Snowpiercer. Because he definitely got the chops.

    • Nick Zotixx says:

      Dont forget his iconic role as Lucas Lee in Scott pilgrim

    • ShadowWolfGaming says:

      Don’t forget the range he had as Johnny Storm in the second movie when he had to switch up and be serious he had shades of Cap and being a leader then.

  3. Dimitri 1027 says:

    I would love to see him play a truly evil role. He was great as the bad guy in Knives Out. Let’s step it up a notch.

  4. Santi says:

    I love hearing the cast of Scott Pilgrim talk about that movie, its my favorite film of all time and it makes it even better how great of a time everyone had making it. I cannot wait for the animated series.

  5. Jae KiDd TV 508Hood News says:

    One of my favorite most underrated movies with Chris Evans is cellular with Jason Statham as the bad guy!

  6. Harshavardhan Raman says:

  7. TheUltraYusuf says:

    I’m really happy he talked about Snowpiercer. Underrated flick.

    • Drew O’Ryan says:

      I was fortunate enough to see it in Theaters. Amazing film

    • qu3nt says:

      what you mean underrated? they even made a series recently and i remember when it came out was triple A movie. tho the concept is a bit weird to me but hey if you like it

    • TheUltraYusuf says:

      @qu3nt it bombed really hard in the US so not a lot of ppl still know it

    • James Wallace says:

      The show is better I think. The concept deserves more of the longform story treatment. A 2 hour movie doesn’t do it justice.

    • Old Lady Reacts says:

      Great movie. I was making a reaction for my channel and the file got corrupted. Still frustrates me to this day that I couldn’t publish it because I really loved the movie!

  8. Frazzy Blue says:

    I’m surprised ‘Defending Jacob’ and ‘Gifted’ weren’t on here, they’re 2 of my favourite projects he’s done

  9. Alexander Angelus says:

    The way he talks about figuring out why people love a character and honouring it rather than just doing their own thing, is something more actors in such iconic roles should learn about.

  10. FiresideAngel says:

    Chris was hilarious in The Losers. I can never listen to “Dont stop believing” without thinking of his scene
