Star actress joins the Marvel debate 5 years after leaving her famous role

Famous actor Chris Evans supported the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies in his new statements.

Appearing at Emerald City Con 2024, Evans, 42, expressed his support for the comic book movies he will always be associated with after playing Captain America for nearly 10 years.

Evans was one of the franchise’s two most famous faces, along with Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr. The star, who starred in some of the most successful Marvel Cinematic Universe films, has not appeared in the franchise since 2019’s Avengers: Endgame in 2019.

“Comic book movies in general, for whatever reason, don’t always get the praise I think they deserve,” Evans told the audience.

“They are big, giant movies. There are too many cooks in the kitchen,” the American actor said:

But the evidence is there: It’s not easy to make them. If it were easier, there would be a lot more good movies. I’m not being condescending! I’ve been part of a few that missed. It happens.

“Some of them are extraordinary”

“Making movies is hard,” said the Boston-born actor, adding, “More cooks in the kitchen doesn’t make it easier.”

I don’t want to highlight specific movies in the Marvel catalog, but some of them are outstanding. They are independent, objectively great movies and I think they deserve a little bit more praise.

Evans cited 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier as his favorite Marvel movie. It was Evans’ second film as Captain America.

“One of the most satisfying experiences”

Evans said, “It’s my favorite Marvel movie that I’ve been a part of. It’s not just the movie itself, it’s the experience.”

In the first movie I was very nervous. You know what you’re stepping into and as a result you play defense and you play not to lose. When Winter Soldier came, we were playing to win. It was our first movie with the Russo Brothers. We were taking more risks and the character was more fleshed out. It was one of the most satisfying experiences I’ve had in my Marvel journey.
