Just seeing his co-stars in their costumes was exciting, Evans said — especially on the first day of shooting with Downey and Hemsworth.
[...] I loved the ‘Iron Man’ movies and I had just seen ‘Thor’ in the theater like a week prior, and I remember coming to set and seeing both of them suited up and just thinking, I think my initial thought was, ‘God, I wish I could work with those guys,’ he said.
Downey, who already starred in two blockbuster “Iron Man” films, was like the leader of the pack, Evans said, establishing a warm feeling on set that fostered camaraderie among the cast.
“With this movie, it’s such a load lifted coming to set going, ‘Look at all these Oscar nominees that I’m surrounded by,’” he said.
Next up for the actor is a film called “Snowpiercer,” which he describes as “a pretty heavy drama with a sci-fi twist,” starring Tilda Swinton, Ed Harris and Octavia Spencer.
In October, Evans will be back in the gym — and back on that high-protein diet — to prepare for his return to superhero status.
