The lights are on
In a new video posted on the Xbox YouTube channel, Captain America actor Chris Evans discusses the fight choreography in the latest Marvel movie. In the clip, Evans says that Cap’s combat style in The Winter Soldier was heavily inspired by the first Avenger’s video game moves.
"The way he moved in the game was so fantastic," Evans says. "He was so nimble and agile and using his environment. The video game was nailing it. Why aren't we emulating this?"
Hopefully, the fighting style is all that Evans and the rest of The Winter Soldier cast and crew borrowed from Captain America: Super Soldier. Captain America is supposed to be a brilliant tactician, and the game Evans is referring to was described in our review as “sometimes mindless” and sporting a “lack of creativity.”
Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens in theaters on Friday, April 4.
