RADIO TIMES – In a world of leaks, huge anticipation and rabid online fanbases it’s perhaps unsurprising that Captain America star Chris Evans likes to keep a lid on his upcoming appearances in Marvel’s superhero movie universe, with the US star remaining tight-lipped about his role in Avengers: Infinity War and other Marvel movies.
“I think Marvel has like a sniper on me at all times,” Evans told RadioTimes.com. “You know that.
“You’ve done enough of these interviews to know that I can’t answer anything having to do with Marvel!”
However, there was one thing Evans WAS willing to admit – just how little he knew about one of the films he’d be appearing in soon, specifically Tom Holland-starring reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming.
You see, for months many fans have assumed that Evans’ Captain America would play a decent-sized role in the upcoming movie, with the actor said to have been filming with Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr in Atlanta and a trailer teasing his appearance by including a pre-recorded school gym class video featuring the WWII hero.
But now Evans has told us that we won’t be seeing Steve Rogers fight villains or lay down some wisdom for Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Homecoming after all – because he actually only filmed that video cameo and not much else.
“Spider-Man? I have no idea what it’s about,” Evans said. “I really don’t. I didn’t read the script, I did that [cameo]…recently!
“I have literally NO idea what it’s about. I have no idea.”
Now of course it could be that Evans is lying and Captain America will play a more substantial role in the new film – but given how prominent Downey Jr’s Tony Stark has been in recent trailers, it’s looking increasingly likely that Cap is tapped out for this one.
