His First appearance is in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). Truth, justice, and all that stuff. Yes, indeed, no movie superhero today embodies such a phrase as Steve Rogers, the scrawny wimp turned super soldier, aka Captain America. The result of a military experiment, Rogers took advantage of his major gains by becoming the Greatest Generation's poster boy, foiling Nazi plans left and right before being frozen and resurrected in the 21st century. Rogers' innate patriotism and nobility is cast in shadow when he discovers world police S.H.I.E.L.D. had long been infiltrated by another organization: HYDRA, sworn World War II enemies. At least Rogers has his crew the Avengers to fall back on -- that is, until an accord for superhero governance is introduced at the United Nations, splitting the team in ideological two. Having personally been betrayed by the establishment, Cap feigns no interest in creating a new one. Former Avengers ally Iron Man sees it differently.
Played by: Chris Evans
Christopher Robert Evans began his acting career in typical fashion: performing in school productions and community theater. He was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the son of Lisa (Capuano), who worked at the Concord Youth Theater, and G. Robert Evans III, a dentist. His uncle is congressman Mike Capuano. Chris's father is of half German and half Welsh/English/Scottish ancestry, while Chris's mother is of half Italian and half Irish descent. He has an older sister, Carly Evans, and two younger siblings, a brother named Scott Evans, and a sister named Shana Evans. The family moved to suburban Sudbury when he was 11 years-old. Bitten by the acting bug in the first grade because his older sister, Carly, started performing, Evans followed suit and began appearing in school plays. While at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School, his drama teacher cited his performance as "Leontes" in "The Winter's Tale" as exemplary of his skill. After more plays and regional theater, he moved to New York and attended the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute.
