Chris Evans on Captain America’s fighting style in The Winter Soldier (x)

In between the first Captain America movie and The Avengers, I had played the Captain America video game; and the way Cap moves in the video game, there’s a fluidity and it’s very acrobatic. It’s very aerial. He uses his environment, and it’s almost this beautiful, smooth dance, and when I first met with the [directors], I said, “Have you played the video game?” And I swear to God, they said: “You know what? We referenced the video game, too.” I said, “Good, good, we’re on the same page. But that means we need to incorporate a little bit more of an acrobatic approach to fighting.” And so we put myself in gymnastic classes, which is something I always wanted to do – kind of, anyway [laughs]. I mean, I wanted to go play on like, the balance beam, but it was more like tumbling, essentially. Parkour-style gymnastic stuff. Flipping, and spinning, and just kind of getting a sense of your body in the air. So we did about two months of that. We did two months, a few hours each day, and it was invaluable. It really lends itself to a lot of those fight scenes.

I like Thor’s sense for justice and his strength. What I always found appealing was that he had to learn to get his ego under control. In the first movie he got a lesson in humility. I liked, in particular, that he always had so much compassion for Loki, no matter how abominable or chaotic he behaved. He always searched for his brother beneath all that.

Happy 31st birthday, Chris Hemsworth!

YES.
