This month sees the release of the superhero summer blockbuster, and Evans has finally made it to the big screen as a leading man in his own right.
He stars as Steve Rogers, a scrawny soldier who puts himself forward for an experiment which results in his transformation into lean, mean, fighting machine - a one man army.
Full of action, romance, comedy and special effects whether this is a huge hit or not remains to be seen, but seeing as Evans has also signed on to reprise his character in the eagerly anticipated Avengers film, due for release next year, the future looks bright.
Evans' next film is the romantic comedy What's Your Number? with Anna Faris, and principle photography on The Avengers has already begun.
He defines the word. Hello Captain, Chris Evans has arrived!
