"When I first started doing Star Wars it was just a big green room and we had some things in there and I had my lightsaber and George would say 'ok, there's this thing attacking you', and I go 'how big is it?' And he says 'it's as big as an SUV' and I go 'really, how fast is it?' And he says 'it's as fast as you want it to be.' So I'm like 'I can do anything I want and you'll draw stuff around me?' He says 'kick all the ass you want and we will make sure it looks like you're the baddest Mother F@#$er in the universe.'"
“I just don’t know if my heart’s as in it as it once was,” he said. “I think when I’m done with this Marvel contract, I’ll take a little break from acting.”
It's important to realize Chris Evans is making about $300K a year.
Thus when Captain America is unfrozen in the 1960s, he’s not freaked out by the changes in racial progress – instead, he forms an instant partnership with one of the first black superheroes, the Falcon, who movie audiences just met for the first time, and the two of them go toe to toe against an insane imposter Captain America who’s obsessed about communists under the bed. The analogy cannot be more pointed: the real Captain America stands for racial equality and civil liberties, the Captain America who believes that the government needs to “smash” reds by any means necessary is a fraud.
This all jives with what Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (writers of both Captain America movies and the Agent Carter pilot) said about the show’s status last month. Agent Carter would be a limited series of thirteen episodes, good for slipping into the winter hiatus of another series. Of course, there may be more to talk about in the assumption that Agents of SHIELD will get a second season.
On the possibility of tackling a side character for one of the Marvel One-Shot films made for the home video releases:
Markus: There are a lot of characters who you can't quite get over the hump to get into a full-length movie that it would be great to roll out into a short. Some of them are too effects heavy. I don't know if you could afford Modok in a 12-minute movie.
Fandango: Do a Shandling story. All the horrible stuff he's orchestrated over the years.
Markus: Batroc and Shandling in a car.
McFeely: Road trip!
