Chris Evans: Captain America Is 'The Ideal Human'

Chris Evans gets into character as Captain America on the cover of Empire‘s March issue.

“I think he’s the ideal human,” Chris told the mag about the superhero he plays in Captain America: The First Avenger. “Not just American. It’s what being a good person is.”

“[My character] Steve’s managed to overcome all the shortcomings he’s had in life and he does what’s good and what he believes is right,” the 29-year-old added.

“I’ve always loved Raiders and the tone that it had. It was period but didn’t feel like it was made in the period. It felt like a modern-day film about the period, which is what we’re doing on Captain America,” said director Joe Johnston.

“It will not feel like a war movie. It’s funny where it needs to be and emotional where it needs to be and serious and full of action,” he explained.

Captain America: The First Avenger hits theaters July 22, 2011!
