Chris Evans Claims The Avengers Isn’t All Action And No Heart

Chris Evans has admitted that he didn’t easily relate to his Captain America character when he first started filming the highly anticipated upcoming superhero movie The Avengers.

Going into it, you’re like, who knows? I don’t know how this is gonna go. There’s a lot of big actors, a lot of big egos, everyone has their own thing going.

Latino Review is reporting that Evans added that filming couldn’t have gone better, and he has high hopes for The Avengers. But, like himself when he first began filming, the actor also said that when Captain America first arrives in the movie, he has troubles adjusting. Evans added that his character is a fish out of water.

He also said he believes The Avengers‘ director Joss Whedon struck a good balance with the film. He went on to say that the movie has really good substance:

You’ve got all these super heroes, there’s gonna be constant battle…but if you don’t have some substance, you got nothing…I know a lot of other movies where it’s all action and no heart. It’s not easy trying to bring all those characters together and find a story, but the best thing about (Joss) is that (Joss) is a fan.

Do you think Evans is right that Whedon was able to bring heart to the story of The Avengers? Find out when the film hits theaters on May 4, 2012.
