Captain America’s Chris Evans revealed he loves becoming a role model for kids. The Steve Rogers actor talked to Paul Rudd to get Variety’s Celebrities on Celebrities series. Evans knows that Cap is a symbol for a lot of youthful Marvel lovers out there, and he doesn’t accept that responsibility lightly. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a thing for fans on the market. All of those little kids haven’t known that a live-action Captain America besides him. Therefore, the MCU star does his very best to set a good example and remain a positive influence for anybody who might be watching. Once on a time, Captain America was a young like them, and he precious other properties and Star Wars. With his job in all those movies, Evans is hoping that his version of Steve Rogers serves a similar purpose for another generation.
“You know, it’s yeah a little bit [freak out]. But that is so nice. I dun about you but that I grew up with Star Wars and that I had characters that meant the world. We live in a time that is different . The celebrity was far away when I was young. And celebrities were only available through their job,” Evans detailed. “Now, you have this other station where you can provide more of that you are, which is a tricky tightrope to walk, but it is wonderful to be able to share a small bit extra. Notably enjoying with a character, I respect so much and trying for you know to produce this nexus between the effect you might want to get on children and the work you do. It is so nice when a child looks up to you.”
“What a strange thing, really undeserving in a sense, you understand? You are just an actor. Nonetheless, it’s nice to kind of sense that the interaction can be more than, I dunno. I met with Hulk Hogan when I was younger, and it was. No sympathy to Hulk Hogan–but occasionally you meet people where you receive your own identity tangled up together in ways,” he continued. “You start to expect things, and it is motivating. I believe that the role itself kind of attracts a whole lot of that to the table… It is nice to interact with children, especially when they walk out feeling something which the character put in their mind already.”
It appears like Evans is pretty much done at this stage using the MCU. He also Robert Downey Jr. made their curtain calls in Avengers: Endgame. But, as the Marvel films move forward, it is clear that those two heroes will form a lot of what comes next. In reality, among Rogers acts on a movie were supposed to ensure that children will get to get a hero to root for. All that remains to be seen is whether Anthony Mackie is really going to lift the shield as Captain America.
