Chris Evans is your Captain America

EW released this week’s cover which gives us an exclusive first look at Chris Evans as Captain America: The First Avenger. No idea why he looks like Nathan Fillion’s brother but in the issue Chris talked about his hesitation in playing the character.

“At the time, I remember telling a buddy of mine, ‘If the movie bombs, I’m f—-ed. If the movie hits, I’m f—-ed!’” After declining the part three times, Evans took a meeting with Marvel execs and Johnston and was dazzled by their plans for the movie. He still felt wary about suiting up for Captain America — but then he had an epiphany. “I was just scared,” he says. “I realized my whole decision making process was fear based, and you never want to make a decision out of fear.’” Evans signed a six-picture deal with Marvel to play the character, and he has no regrets: “I can’t believe was almost too chicken to play Captain America.”

I’m still not sure I can get behind this movie. A film about a perfect human specimen and I’m not in it? C’mon, people. This seems a little unrealistic.

Looks like a military guy with sore throat.

That pic is so, so retouched. His skin is pale pink, and his teeth are almost brown from either smoking or coffee or both. He should get that s**t fixed before he’s Captain ANYTHING.
