Chris Evans on Captain America's Avengers costume change

Chris Evans might be promoting Puncture at the moment but you know what online journalists are like, all we care about are comic-book movies and girls.

Thankfully, Chris has been happy to illuminate us about the former. But not so much on the latter.

When pressed about the changes to Captain America's costume we've seen in the set pictures cropping up on that darn Internet, Evans told The Playlist : “The first (costume) was a 1940s look, very utilitarian, something that would serve a purpose on the battlefield."

"But in The Avengers, Joss just had a certain vision in his mind about what he wanted Cap to look like."

"That’s what he wanted to see. It’s so nice working on these movies and the director’s a fan. He’s the dude at Comic-Con that we’re terrified of pissing off. If Joss is happy, I’m happy.”

Evans was also fairly frank about the chances of him showing up in Iron Man 3 or Thor 2 or any of the other Marvel films currently in the pipeline.

“Out of those six films, if I pop up in one of those (other films), it counts as part of the deal."

"So if they needed me in a third Cap, and I say, ‘Fuck you, give me $30 million.’ Well… they want to avoid that.”

As do we, Chris. As do we.

And Evans even seemed to confirm Captain America 2's release date.

“They may wait until 2014 until they release the next Cap. Marvel has a lot of balls in the air, they aren’t going to cannibalize their films.”

Puncture is in US cinemas now, and will be released in the UK later this year. Avengers is out 4 May 2012 and Captain America 2 will be out in the summer of 2014 (apparently).
