It will be hard to replace Chris Evans when he inevitably leaves the role of “Captain America” behind for the next step of his career. He has had many memorable moments over the years, and provided plenty of entertainment with his stoic demeanor, sense of humor, and ability to give some great action. Today, we learned which of those action scenes from his time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is his favorite of all time!
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Evans explained that his favorite fight scene he has done as Cap is unequivocally the elevator scene from “The Winter Soldier”. It’s a sequence that has become iconic for the franchise in a movie that arguably has some of the best hand-to-hand fight scenes in any of the MCU films thus far. What is more surprising than his choice of scene is the reason why he chose it:
I’m partial to that fight scene in the elevator. That was the first scene we shot in the second Captain America movie. It was my first time working with the Russos, it was the first time where it felt like Cap was kind of on his own.
In the first Cap movie you know, you really felt like everyone was holding my hand, and the first Avengers movie I just did my best to not get in the way. The second Cap movie is the one that I really kind of felt, I suppose, pressure, and that first elevator fight scene came out really great in my opinion.
Evans has been very proud of his stunt work on the MCU films, and is very active on social media sharing behind the scenes footage of him while practicing choreography. “Avengers: Endgame” should be very intense, and considering it will likely be the last hurrah for Evans’ Cap, we can expect some real bangers in that epic movie.
“Avengers: Endgame” hits US theaters on April 26.
