At a WonderCon press roundtable for Sylvain White's The Losers, the elephant in the room was addressed and Chris Evans was asked why he wanted to play the role of Steve Rogers in Marvel's The First Avenger: Captain America. After all, Evans already has played another iconic Marvel comic character when he took on the role of Johnny Storm a.k.a The Human Torch in two "Fantastic Four" movies and besides his role in the comic-based "Losers," he's also playing action star Lucas Lee in Edgar Wright's upcoming Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

At first, Evans was slightly hesitant at answering, knowing full well the question was coming, as would be expected when you're at a comic convention with lots of press interested in genre fare. After a bit of stammering, he finally said what interested him in playing another comic book role:

"I think Marvel is doing a lot of good things right now, and it's a fun character. Even if it wasn't a comic book. I think the story of Steve Rogers is great. He's a great guy. Even if it was just a script about anybody, I would probably want to do it. So it wasn't necessarily about the comic itself. He's a great character. He's a great character to play. He just happens to be a comic book character."

He was then ribbed by Zoe Saldana, his co-star in The Losers, to add that it was all about being able to get back into blue tights, which he wore a lot as Johnny Storm.

Meanwhile, The Losers opens on April 23; look for our coverage of the WonderCon panel shortly.

He's breaking the unspoken rules of Comic book adaptations.
You don't get to play a different Super Hero.

Just goes to show how 'hollywood" the comic industry (Insert MARVEL here) has become.
It's great that these are all coming to light in mainstream but honestly they are going to kill off their own fan base by going for the big hit.

Just my 2 cents. 🙂

He was a good Human Torch.

He's not Cap material though.

Dark, calm it down there buddy. Laugh

War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

Hmmmm, well he was like a boy in F4, maybe he has grown up a bit so he can be Captain America...
Although I would prefer Captain Falcon 😆

You're into the Falcon Punch, eh DS? Laugh Laugh

No, I still don't think he's Cap material, sadly.
