Chris Evans’s 10 Best Movies

Chris Evans

Chris Evans is an actor who has made a career about either being the best part of bad comic book adaptations (Fantastic Four), or one of the best things about ones you instantly recognize (MCU) or ones you may now know are comic book adaptations (Scott Pilgrim, The Losers and Snowpiercer).  Evans is certainly most recognizable for his seven appearances as Steve Rogers/Captain America.  The Captain America films have been the best individual trilogy of any Marvel Cinematic Universe solo hero, and Evans’s principled, evolving Rogers has been the moral fulcrum of the Avengers.  The actor tends to make smaller films when not in superhero mode, the best of which (Gifted) really show both the humor and talented dramatic skills Evans brings to every film in which he takes part.

Next Film
: Evans, unlike many of his co-stars whose fate was left up in the air after Avengers: Infinity War, will definitely be returning for Avengers 4 in May 2019 for what will likely be his last film as Steve Rogers/Captain America.  His only film before Avengers 4 is with Haley Bennett and Ben Kingsley in The Red Sea Diving Resort set for release later in 2018.  The film recreates the rescue of Ethiopian Jewish immigrants to Israel in 1981.

    1. When you build characters for years, you can have payoff moments that are so far above and beyond what you can do in a single film. That’s why Infinity War hits everyone so hard. We’re all invested in 19 films now in this universe, and the perfect way they slow burn reveal Bucky’s murder of the Starks and Zemo’s perfect revenge (there’s a villain who won) made the fight inevitable and heartbreaking for both sides. Avengers 4 is going to give us, hopefully, Tony and Steve’s reunion and they need to slow the film down and do that right no matter the run time.

      1. They will. I don’t think there is any chance that A4 will try to recreate the feeling of IW. The Russos have shown they can shoot a whole film with IMAX cameras now, and Disney/MCU has nothing to prove anymore in the spectacle department. I’m not saying it’s going to be a Bergmanesque character study (I’m sure they’ll try to actually top the IW action) but in a sense I think it’s going to be Kill Bill 2 to IW’s Kill Bill 1, it’s going to be character driven and more, shall we say, reasonably paced. They have to give Cap a satisfying send-off like you said, and it felt like he was shortchanged in IW. Whatever is coming will have to fit into the next one, and that is an enormous responsibility for the film.

        I don’t know who else is leaving, but even Black Widow… isn’t her rumored standalone going to be a prequel? And I still say Hulk is toast, they began IW with him being defeated, and Banner spent the whole movie trying to get the Hulk back… the green guy WILL come back, and go out like the hero he is. They’ve succeeded in making people view the character as one with depth and pathos, and they can’t make standalone films with him. Time to clear the way for characters with futures. I don’t think this way, but the suits at Disney might. Introduce She-Hulk. And I would pay to see Red Hulk in a movie. I really think they might get rid of Bruce. After IW I really don’t know who’s safe anymore.

        This really could have been a trilogy, but no sense indulging in what-ifs. The next one could care less about fitting a certain number of characters into its run time. It’s probably going to be a much better, much more satisfying film. I’m crazy about IW, but they only got away with it because they had Thanos.

        I hope I did not annoy you with my Solo kind-of optimism. Solo will be a huge deal breaker for me if it’s as bad as TFA, but right now it still looks fun. I remember the controversy surrounding LeFou, and if you blinked you missed the offending material in Beauty and in the Beast. Same studio, similar announcement, about a week before release.

    1. Well because Homecoming is a better movie. He was by far the best thing about FF, but that movie is painful…though sadly probably the best FF movie. It’s not their performances but the films I rank. Appreciate the comment. Lists are totally subjective and that’s just my take. He’s done some smaller films that I haven’t seen too, but I update them as I get around to things.

      1. Of course I get it. =) I myself wouldn’t be able to come up with 10 movies with him in it. It’s just that it was a cameo–arguably, it doesn’t count. I know, it’s subjective and it’s your list. My no.1 would be Snowpiercer. But don’t worry, you can update it next year. Around May. =)

      2. Well even in Infinity War he only had 6 minutes of screen time. It is a cameo in Homecoming. I guess what my rule is on cameos is was it impactful enough on the film and I felt it was the best running gag in the film. He is in Thor 2 for 30 seconds when Loki changes into him but I wouldn’t count that because it was a one off joke. If that makes any logical sense lol. Oh Lord it took me so long to update profiles after Infinity War and it will probably take twice as long for Avengers 4 but I doubt I will mind lol.
