Chris Evans is no stranger to superhero roles, as he played the Human Torch prior to his iconic tenure as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Evans' time as Cap is coming to an end with Avengers: Endgame, after appearing in seven movies (in addition to a few cameos). As such, Evans has been reflecting on his time as Steve Rogers, especially as the press tour to Endgame goes into full swing.
Chris Evans has been leading the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger, and fans have seen the title character have a massive narrative arc. He's also been in countless action sequences, both small and epic in scale. But there's one that stands out to the 37 year-old actor, as he recently revealed:
It looks like Captain America: The Winter Soldier takes the cake for Chris Evans, specifically the epic elevator fight sequence during the film's second act. You can't blame him, as it's a thrilling sequence in the beloved sequel.
Chris Evans' comments to THR highlights what a significant moment The Winter Soldier was for both his characterization, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole. The movie brought new colors to iconic characters like Cap, Black Widow, and Nick Fury, while also welcoming Bucky back to the shared universe. But aside from how those heroes were progressing, The Winter Soldier also marks The Russo Brothers' Marvel debut. And we all saw how that turned out.
The Russo Brothers did excellent work with Captain America's sequel, and the duo of directors ended up having a significant role in the MCU as a whole. They did the impossible with large ensemble movies like Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, and will end the shared universe as we know it with next month's Endgame.
As a reminder, you can check out the elevator scene from Captain America: The Winter Soldier below.
All of the action in Winter Soldier is great, but this sequence is something else. The stakes felt high, as it soon became clear that Captain America wasn't safe anywhere. And seeing him dispatch a group of enemies in such a small space (and with magnetic cuffs) is pulse pounding action.
Captain America's story will come to a close when Avengers: Endgame arrives in theaters on April 26th. The fandom generally believes Steve Rogers will perish during the upcoming battle with Thanos, but we'll see what The Russo Brothers have in store shortly.
