Marvel released a new trailer for the highly anticipated ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron‘ movie! Is it just me, or is this one of the grimmest superhero trailers ever? I mean, I guess Batman also has some pretty somber trailers but goodness. RELATED: Who is worthy to wield Thor’s hammer?
On Christmas Eve, Forbes released one of their most depressing lists: Top Overpaid Actors of 2014. Now, a couple of days before ringing in the new year, they released one of their more upbeat lists: The Highest Grossing Actors of 2014. Unsurprisingly, ‘The Hunger Games’ star Jennifer Lawrence topped the list. RELATED: Jennifer Lawrence steps out in the city.
This clip starts off light and humorous as the Avengers try to pick up Thor’s hammer. You can imagine how it goes, especially when Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) give it a try ;). Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is magnanimous throughout, although is there a moment when Captain America (Chris Evans) looks like he may succeed in picking it up? The Black Widow’s (Scarlett Johansson) response to the challenge is hilarious. Then it takes a very serious turn when Ultron makes an appearance.

This is a far cry from ‘Captain America’ for Chris Evans! He stars in this sci-fi movie, ‘Snowpiercer.’ It looks pretty gritty! The movie has quite a cast, however. In addition to Chris, it also stars Tilda Swinton, Octavia Spencer, Jamie Bell, John Hurt and Ed Harris. RELATED: Is Chris Evans dropping ‘Captain America’?
Here’s Scarlett Johansson, back on the red carpet for another ‘Captain America‘ premiere with Chris Evans! She wore this little red number to the UK premiere. Now, I know everyone’s looking for a baby bump. Some will insist they see a little something. I will admit it up front: I see no sign of a baby bump.
Well, what do you know, here’s Captain America getting ready to fly commercial- LOL. Chris Evans was spotted catching a flight out of LAX. My guess is he’s heading to Europe for more red carpet premieres for ‘Captain America.’ Can’t WAIT to see Chris and co-star Scarlett Johansson on the red carpet again!
Uh-oh. Is Captain America in trouble?
It appears that Chris Evans might be a little bit disenchanted with his gig as Captain America. During an interview with Glamour UK he recently he said that he may be taking a break once his six-film contract with Marvel for their Avengers series is finished up, saying,
I would never trade in the decision to have done these movies. I’ve been wildly fortunate. I just don’t know if my heart’s as in it as it once was. I think when I’m done with this Marvel contract, I’ll take a little break from acting. With acting, you’re one piece in a very big puzzle. It’s like you helped buy a gift but you don’t know what the gift is, so you come back and see the movie. Sometimes it’s nice, sometimes it’s tragic. I would imagine the world of a director is a little bit cleaner in terms of your responsibilities.
Phew! It looks like Captain America is safe for now, and that Chris probably won’t be getting out of his current contract (or even trying to). And we totally understand wanting to take a break once his contract is up – the actors in those films have been working pretty much non-stop for the last few years filming one flick after another. Although… they probably get compensated pretty well, don’t ya think?
