Director Joss Whedon is putting the finishing touches on Marvel’s The Avengers, which kicks off the summer movie season May 4. While the ensemble features an entire team of superheroes, the filmmaker revealed that most of the story will be told through the perspective of Chris Evans’ Captain America character.
Here’s what he had to say below:
“I set out with a very simple problem: There is no reason for these people to be in the same movie. So that’s what my movie has to be about. So much of the movie takes place from Steve Rogers’ (Chris Evans) perspective, since he’s the guy who just woke up and sees this weird ass world. Everyone else has been living in it.”
Marvel’s The Avengers comes to theaters May 4th, 2012 and stars Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Robert Downey Jr., Cobie Smulders, Tom Hiddleston and Samuel L. Jackson. The film is directed by Joss Whedon. (Source)
Chris and his beautiful wife Elsa Pataky are about to welcome a new addition to their family. The star of Thor and the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman and his wife are expecting their first child, according to Hola! magazine. Pataky tells the publication:
“Chris and I are ecstatic, very happy and excited. Since it’s our first child we don’t care if it’s a boy or girl, our only wish is that it’s healthy.” She says her husband has a big task in front of him and it isn’t about changing diapers. “I’m only going to speak to the baby in Spanish,” she said. “I already told my husband, ‘Get ready fast with Spanish because, if not, you’re not going to be able to understand what we say.”
She’s also chatting about food cravings. “Everything healthy I used to like, I now don’t like. All of a sudden, the only things that sound good to me are all the sweets in the world, hamburgers, and french fries,” she says. “I have never eaten popcorn, and with the pregnancy I eat it all the time.”

"Chris Hemsworth is like Christopher Reeve in that he can do two things: he can wear a big red cape without a shred of self-consciousness. But he's also funny as hell, and he's so sweet. So with all the fish-out-of-water stuff, he's so funny. So he does almost two jobs in a way." - Tom Hiddleston ("Thor") about Chris
