Chris Evans has played two Marvel heroes. Which do you prefer?
Captain America/Steve Rogers easily for me. His portrayal of an earnest man who just wants to fight for country worked so well. He was great as the Human Torch...best thing about those movies...but this was so much better.
It appears this will probably skew towards the Cap side since we're in his board but what can you do.....
His Cap was miles better, though he made a good Torch, too. Cap is just a deeper character.
I thought he did a great job in both roles. Having said that I definitely prefer Cap and it helps that it's the far better movie. One more thing, both roles are far different. I remember people worrying Cap would be too similar to the Torch's mannerisms and portrayal. Evans is a pretty good actor.
this should be good.
Simply put he played the roles as they were meant to be for example he was the right age for Human Torch because HT is cocky and a prankster, but now that Chris Evans has matured he easily can play the boy scout Captain America.
Chris was one of the few bright spots of Fantastic Four, and I thought he did justice to Jonny Storm. However there's really no comparison, Cap is a better movie, he has more to work with, he's able to bring more to the table in this roll, and much more likeable in this roll.
Human Torch gets no love I voted for Cap.
He was good as the Human Torch but he put his all into Cap so Cap it is.
He was fantastic as both, but better as the Human Torch, imo.
The fact that Chris Evans has the skills to effectively portray two characters from the MARVEL Universe that are like Polar Contrasts to each other really says a lot about his acting skills.
I mean, I would have never thought back in the day, that Chris Evans could play Steve so well due to how well he played Johnny Storm. Now, I can't imagine anyone playing Steve rogers other than him.
Very well said herolee10!!!
I was thinking exactly the same thing.
Captain America/Steve Rogers, Evans showed he had range and depth to give solid performance that wasn't based in comedy alone . Evans was funny and entertaining as Johnny Storm in The Fantastic Four. But he was 10 times better as The Star Spangled Man
Captain America. Evans really sold me on this character who is a superhero in the truest sense-- he's a true role model, and those characters are difficult to sell to the audience without coming across as dull or boring, but Evans owned it. IMO that's a lot harder than playing the lovable *****e like he did in Fantastic 4.
Thinking about it now
He was well suited for the MarvelStudio's version of Cap
but he pretty much nailed the Real Human Torch.
Given both films were actually perfect, I'd rather see him as torch.
Captain America BY FAR.
He was very good in both, but Captain America gave him more to work with and was a much better film.
Steve Rogers, without a doubt. Maybe it is because Chris Evans played one too many of those cocky, arrogant characters, but his Johnny Storm seemed like a rethread of other roles he has done. But Evans' Rogers really convinced us that he's an old-fashioned, courageous man who doesn't back down and has that "aw shucks" personality, and they are quite different than the Chris Evans that we thought we know. Therefore, I'm way more impressed with his performance as Steve Rogers.
He was Steve Rogers, just as he totally embodied Johnny Storm in the FF films. I mean, I see Johnny in the comics, and I see Chris. Now, though, when I read Captain America comics, I'll see Chris as Steve.
That said, I voted for Captain America, as it was the better overall movie.
He's fantastic as cap...it requires more heart and more acting too. Evans is no Captain America in real life, even though he seems like a down to earth guy. He disappeared into the role for me
I loved him in both roles. I'll pick Cap because it's actually a good film while FF was entertaining but bad.
There was nothing entertaining about the Fantastic Four movies. That talentless hack director wouldn't know how to spell 'entertaining'.
That said, Captain America by far. Evans shot this out of the park, he owned the role.
Cap! Easily. He was fantastic as The Human Torch, but he had better material to work with as Captain America (because it's a better movie on all levels).
Shouldn't the poll also ask Captain America vs. Human Torch vs. Lucas Lee?
Because I don't know about any of y'all, but Lucas Lee kinda rules my heart
"Is that a trick question??"
he is Captain america now
