Chris Evans Has Portrayed 8 Different Comic Book Characters

With Avengers: Endgame slowly disappearing from the limelight, it looks like Chris Evans has officially ended his long-running tenure as Captain America. While it was a bittersweet moment for sure, fans are beginning to accept the changes which have recently hit the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and if one thing’s certain, it’s that the future is going to look very different moving forward.

In the midst of his departure from the McU though, some folks have started to look at his entire filmography and discovered something quite intriguing. Throughout the last two decades, Chris has played over a half a dozen comic book roles spanning close to 20 movies. While a good chunk of that can be attributed to his stint as Captain America, if you dig deeper, you’ll find he has quite an extensive history of characters which got their start in comics.

What Chris Evans Has Done for Captain America

Mark Harrison May 7, 2019

Who’s strong and brave, here to save the American way? We salute Chris Evans’ turn as Marvel Studios’ star-spangled man

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

This feature contains Major spoilers for the ending of Avengers: Endgame.

When it comes to comic book movies, Captain America: The First Avenger was far from Chris Evans’ first rodeo. Having previously appeared in films like the Fantastic Four movies, The Losers, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and Push, he may have played more comic characters than any other actor working today. And yet, his turn as Steve Rogers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is unquestionably his best work.

But to look back on his eight years in the part is to ask not what Captain America has done for the actor, but what Chris Evans has done for the character. Marvel Studios essentially embarked on its initial

To celebrate the home entertainment release of Gangsta, available on Digital HD 19th October and on DVD 29th October, we have a copy of the DVD up for grabs, courtesy of Signature Entertainment!

From the up-and-coming directors of Bad Boys for Life and rumoured to be attached to Beverly Hills Cop 4, a hapless group of underdogs bite off more than they can chew in a wannabe gangster story filled with outrageous humour and chaotic gangland violence alike.

Inspired by their experiences as Moroccans growing up in Belgium, El Arbi and Fallah pull no punches in lifting the curtain on not just the criminal underbelly of Antwerp’s drug trade, but also the prejudices ingrained in even those we’re supposed to trust, in this criminally hilarious gangster comedy.

‘Birds of Prey’ Star Mary Elizabeth Winstead Gives Us Her ‘Strong,’ ‘Emotional’ Take on The Huntress
Mary Elizabeth Winstead is no stranger to big screen comic book adaptations, having played Ramona Flowers in Edgar Wright’s 2010 cult hit “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.” She has also portrayed her share of strong female characters in titles including FX series “Fargo” and 2014 biographical crime drama “Kill the Messenger.” Winstead’s new role as Huntress in Warner Bros.’ upcoming female-led “Birds of Prey” is a completely new and different story, though.

“I’m going to start training, and I’ll be learning how to shoot a bow and arrow, too — which is new for me,” Winstead told TheWrap during an interview for her latest film, a dramedy called “All About Nina,” in theaters this weekend.

TheWrap reported earlier this week that Winstead, along with Jurnee Smollett-Bell (“Friday Night Lights”), have been cast in the Margot Robbie-led DC anti-hero team-up “Birds of Prey.”

Infinity War Gets the Scott Pilgrim Treatment in New Fan-Made Trailer

The YouTube channel The Unusual Suspects has cut a new trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, following the movie's Blu-Ray release, and has made it into a replica of the Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World trailer from 2010. The music, comedic timing, and graphics from Edgar Wright's video game-themed movie all seem to work perfectly in this remarkably clever cut of Avengers: Infinity War.

The trailer puts a bit of a focus on the Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor, who were some of the more comedic characters in Avengers: Infinity War. In the style of Edgar Wright, the trailer cuts the humorous banter of Thor and the Guardians in a hilarious way, with the music and sound effects adding even more emphasis to the comedy of the moment. Even Peter Dinklage's Eitri earns himself a laugh in this trailer mash-up, with his line, "that's what killing you means," being even funnier in this context.

5 Reasons why you need to see Baby Driver

  • Cineplex
5 Reasons why you need to see Baby Driver5 Reasons why you need to see Baby DriverAdriana Floridia10/10/2017 10:46:00 AMDirector Edgar Wright is kind of a big deal. Although he may not be a household name yet, with his latest film, Baby Driver, surely even non-film aficionados will soon know who he is. Most famous for his "Cornetto" trilogy, comprising of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End, and all made with collaborators Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, these three films are something of cult classics. He also directed the Toronto-set Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, which many consider a masterpiece of stylistic filmmaking. Baby Driver follows in its footsteps as an equally stylistic crime film about Baby (Ansel Elgort), a young getaway driver who's paying a debt to a mob boss (Kevin Spacey). It's a story we've seen before, but it has never quite unfolded like it does in Baby Driver,

Bodied Review [Fantastic Fest 2017]

From the moment Bodied opens with a promotional advert for the Killafornia Battle League (in which we’re *immediately* told to “suck a dick!”) to the very last insert-rap-lyric-here outro line, director Joseph Kahn and co-writer Alex Larsen assassinate political correctness with pop-culture lyricisms and heat-seeking regard. Ninjas of the rapped word in their ranks, racial appropriation and misrepresented social justice tenacity in their crosshairs. We no longer can share a single thought without offending someone, somewhere, who wants to score uncashable “woke points” – and Kahn wants to make their fragile little minds explode. This is two straight hours of offensive battle rap bars, non-stop hilarity, layered introspection and the most stylized, take-no-prisoners commentary on what a black-and-white minefield our behavioral ethics have become.

That, and it’s the most motherflippin’ fun you’ll have in a theater of any kind this year, the next, and probably many to come.
