Chris Evans interview about Scott Pilgrim (video)

Chris Evans says the transformation he goes through in Captain America: The First Avenger is “fantastic”.

(Chris & Chris our future Thor & Captain America)
The actor portrays the legendary superhero in the new movie, and had to beef up for the role. He had no problem packing on muscle, but his buff physique posed a problem for movie bosses. Captain America is originally a skinny man called Steve Rogers, who becomes the hulking superhero in order to aid his country. Chris had to shoot scenes as both Steve and Captain America but only needed bulging biceps when he was the latter, meaning the crew had to find a way for his muscles to shrink and grow quickly.

“They got some great stuff going on right now. Initially they were going to do all body replacement - hire another actor completely and have this skinny body do the scene and do face replacement," Evans told MTV at Comic-Con in San Diego. "But I guess the first couple tests weren't what they were hoping it would be, and then they decided to go with just shrinking me down. They did a couple tests. It looks fantastic and it's really going to be a big transition.”

Chris loved filming the movie because he got to play two characters. Although Captain America was exciting to portray he is also a fan of Steve, and hopes moviegoers won’t forget about him because the superhero is so exciting.

“It's absolutely one character, I think he's Steve through and through, even after he goes through the transformation. I think you want the audience, even in the final frame of the film, to look at him and see the little guy,” he explained. “That's what I think is endearing.”

Chris Evans' 'Captain America' Will Have Several Different Costumes, Shields

Initially in the script, Steve isn't Captain America right away,' Evans explained about Captain America's appearance in the film.

When Chris Evans suits up as Captain America for "Captain America: The First Avenger," due out next summer, there will be several incarnations of his costume throughout the movie.

"So far, so good. I think it's a process. I've been working on other projects, so there hasn't been as much time as I would have liked to be in London and kind of go through trial by error to make it the best, most comfortable thing in the world," he told MTV News at Comic-Con in San Diego about his fittings thus far for the outfits he will wear as Captain America in the flick.
"But it's not bad. It's a World War II movie, so I think a little bit of a cumbersome feel to it and something that's a bit chunkier ... not only serves the time period, I think it looks better," he added. "It's not this sleek spandex suit. It looks like something you might wear in the '40s in the middle of a war."

In order to get it right in the film, Steve Rogers and the military must tackle a few uniforms before we get the chance to see the Captain America we all know. "There's a couple stages and initially in the script, Steve isn't Captain America right away," he explained. "He gets the injection and isn't asked to go to war right off the bat. He's used in different areas, so he has different stages of the suit. I don't think he actually jumps into the final suit until the third act of the film."

So, does that mean Captain America's famous shield will also have a few different looks in the film? "Well, during the USO tour, there's obviously a different shield," Evans explained. "And he goes on a couple missions, he goes AWOL and kind of takes the USO shield. And he's kind of allowed to be this soldier and they outfit him with the new uniform. They decide to outfit him with an updated shield."

Chris Evans at Comic-con 2010

Chris Evans on playing Cap: "It's a little intimidating, a little daunting, but it's exciting... The suit's fantastic."

Chris Evans on the early debates surrounding his casting: "People here might have had an opinion one way or the other, but at the end of the day I'm trying to make a character come to life. ... Hopefully if we do our job right and the movie's good, no one will have a problem with it. I hope."

Chris Evans says he "loves origin pieces" and "I think it's great when you see who the person was before they're given these amazing gifts."
