The Hollywood Reporter, MCU star Chris Evans discussed Avengers: Endgame, his favorite scene as Captain America and more. Below are some highlights and a video of the interview. Avengers: Endgame opens in theaters on April 26.

Chris Evans on his favorite scene as Captain America: “I’m partial to that fight scene in the elevator [from Captain America: The Winter Solider]. That was the first scene we shot in the second Captain America movie; it was my first time working with the Russos; it was the first time where it felt like Cap was kind of on his own. The first Cap movie it felt like everyone was really holding my hand, and the first Avengers movie I just did my best to not get in the way. The second Cap movie is the one where I really felt… I suppose pressure. And that first elevator fight scene came out really great.”

His thoughts on actor momentum: “Momentum is a real fallacy, in my opinion. But it has a really strong hold on a lot of actors’ mentalities. You really believe that while the ball’s rolling, you gotta keep it rolling. I could be wrong, but to me — I just don’t believe in that. I don’t think that’s real.”

Evans on what he does on Twitter: “Marvel has never said anything. On the contrary — when I bump into Kevin Feige the first thing out of his mouth is ‘Man, I love what you’re doing [on Twitter].’ I don’t see it as trash-talking,” says Feige, Marvel’s president. “I see it as very astute, very honorable, very noble, very Cap-like. Commentary and questioning. I’ve said to him, ‘You’re merging! You and the character are merging!'”

Chris Evans on watching Avengers Endgame and joking on his character’s fate: “Yeah. I wish I could. Uh, it’s — I mean — it’s a good one. It’s a real good one. I saw, like, the first hour of it. The characters I play do a lot of that heavy lifting. If people knew me — I’m just an asshole. Right, exactly. After I die by Tony’s hand, I just said, You know what? I can’t watch this. I can’t believe they even cut together a trailer because so much of it is a visual spoiler. You’ll see. A lot of the characters have — Probably shouldn’t have even said that.”

Chris Evans on getting offered the role of Captain America: “Getting the [Captain America] offer felt to me like the epitome of temptation. The ultimate job offer, on the biggest scale. I’m supposed to say no to this thing. It felt like the right thing to do.”

His thoughts on Avengers: Endgame: “Man. This one’s really good. I choked up like three times. Right. It’s hard. Seeing my own death. It’s going to be a long movie, that’s for sure. The first edit clocked in over three hours. My funeral’s like an hour.”
