Chris Evans has certainly made a name for himself over the years and is only getting bigger and bigger in Hollywood. That especially holds true in his portrayal of Captain America in his own film and The Avengers which hits theatres on May 4, 2012.
Collider.com got the chance to speak with Evans about his career and the different projects he’s got going on and upcoming. That includes The Avengers and the sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger.
Collider: Did the success of Captain America allow you to breathe a sigh of relief, going into The Avengers, knowing that audiences want to see more of the character?
CHRIS EVANS: Oh, yeah, absolutely! Plus, with The Avengers, we’re sharing the workload. It’s a lot nicer when you’re not the only one wearing a silly costume.
Collider: Having gone from Captain America right into The Avengers, how long do you get to be Chris Evans and not Steve Rogers, especially with Marvel releasing two films a year now?
EVANS: It was pretty quick. We finished Captain America in December. We had about a month off, and then we had to do about a month of re-shoots for Cap. And then, we went right into The Avengers. It was a quick turn-around.

Collider: Do you have any idea when you’ll start work on Captain America 2?
EVANS: No, not yet. There’s no official word.
What’s it been like to film The Avengers in New York, with all the attention that draws from people taking photos and fans wanting to get a glimpse?
EVANS: It’s chaos! That was the one tricky part of working in the city. There were a lot of rubber-neckers.
