Chris Evans Considers RDJ To Be The Actor From Whom He Has Learned The Most
Chris Evans acknowledges his MCU costar, RDJ, as the actor from whom he's learnt the most while promoting Lightyear in a recent interview full with pups
Evans is most recognized for playing Steve Rogers/Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for nearly a decade, alongside Downey's Tony Stark. Before Captain America: Civil War, the two first crossed the screen in 2012's The Avengers, in which their characters' opposing world views became a bone of conflict. Iron Man and Captain America's relationship is one of the most interesting in the Marvel Universe, with the two heroes reuniting in Avengers: Endgame and completing their storylines in the opposite order. The performers, like the superheroes, learnt a lot from each other. Evans got down with pups in a recent installment of BuzzFeed Celeb's puppy interviews to promote Lightyear and answer questions about previous performances. When asked who of his co-stars he has learnt the most from, the actor named RDJ as the person from whom he has gained the most knowledge. Here's the rest of the quote:
“Probably Downey. You know, he’s seen a lot, been through a lot, and he’s so talented—you’d be a fool to not listen.”
Evans reversed his Captain America persona in Rian Johnson's murder thriller Knives Out and had a humorous appearance in Free Guy, after his stunning bookend in Endgame. Evans' next film after Lightyear is Joe and Anthony Russo's (Endgame) The Gray Man. Downey will appear in Christopher Nolan's forthcoming Oppenheimer biopic as well as Sherlock Holmes 3. It's unclear whether any of these renowned performers will reprise their MCU roles. If they ever do, it will be difficult to match what they accomplished together. The presence of talent like Downey helped the MCU gain a lot of respect before it became the behemoth that it is now. On and off screen, he was a founding father of the MCU, assisting actors like Mark Ruffalo, Tom Holland, and Chris Evans on their roles. Evans had stated that he had turned down the part of Captain America several times before receiving a call from Downey. Evans accepted the job and, without a doubt, made himself associated with it thanks to the experienced actor's encouragement.
