Chris Evans heats up EW cover as Captain America!

Chris Evans was just warming up when he played Human Torch in a pair of Fantastic Four movies.

The actor is now headlining Captain American which we get a preview of in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly.

During a break in shooting in London, Evans explained to EW that he was reluctant to accept the call of Captain America, in part because he had already portrayed a Marvel-ous mystery man. Of course, he also worried about the potential cost of failure, but he also worried the potential cost of fame should the movie be a hit.

“At the time, I remember telling a buddy of mine, ‘If the movie bombs, I’m f—-ed. If the movie hits, I’m f—-ed!’” After declining the part three times, Evans took a meeting with Marvel execs and Johnston and was dazzled by their plans for the movie. He still felt wary about suiting up for Captain America — but then he had an epiphany. “I was just scared,” he says. “I realized my whole decision making process was fear based, and you never want to make a decision out of fear.’” Evans signed a six-picture deal with Marvel to play the character, and he has no regrets: “I can’t believe was almost too chicken to play Captain America.”

  1. YUM

  2. YUM is right! He was “hot” in more ways than one as the Human Torch.
