Chris Evans has been making the rounds at the Toronto International Film Festival promoting his movie “The Iceman,” but it seems all anyone wants to know anything about is his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in “Captain America: Winter Soldier.” We’ve rounded up a couple of his quotes from various TIFF interviews that tease his approach to picking up Captain America’s shield again.

“I’m dreading it [the physical transformation], this is what I keep thinking. We start ‘Cap 2’ in March so come January I have to get back into that routine. All I’m thinking about is the future movies, like ‘god, how am I going to keep getting big’, it’s such a chore. I hate to admit it but it’s not easy,” he said to Tribute (via ComicBookMovie.com).

He continued, “It’s months and months of lifting heavy stuff and…not looking forward to it. But, it’s worth it because I am happy with the movies and I do love the character so come January, my life is going to be different. It’s such a commitment, top-to-bottom, its not just lifting, sleep is important, your diet is important. It’s a complete commitment but what am I saying, it’s good problems to have.”

In a separate interview with MTV News, Evans opened up about how excited he is Sebastian Stan will be returning and Anthony Mackie will be joining the cast of “Captain America: Winter Soldier.” This time he expressed his excitement for returning to the Marvel universe.

“Even during the first ‘Captain America,’ well before ‘The Avengers,’ there were kind of whispers of that being the sequel, so I’m excited to tackle that,” he said.

Meanwhile Hayley Atwell piped up in an interview with HeyUGuys to sort-of-not-really deny that she’ll be in “Captain America 2.” She said that Peggy Carter is “gone, long gone, and it’s up to the Marvel Studios team to propel the story forward,” but we’ll wait until we hear official confirmation that she’s out to get disappointed.

“Captain America: Winter Soldier” is due in theaters on April 4, 2014.

Millennial Wisdom

Charles Speaks For Us All

Get to know Charles, the social media whiz of Brockmire.

Posted by on

He may be an unlikely radio producer Brockmire, but Charles is #1 when it comes to delivering quips that tie a nice little bow on the absurdity of any given situation.

Charles also perfectly captures the jaded outlook of Millennials. Or at least Millennials as mythologized by marketers and news idiots. You know who you are.

Played superbly by Tyrel Jackson Williams, Charles’s quippy nuggets target just about any subject matter, from entry-level jobs in social media (“I plan on getting some experience here, then moving to New York to finally start my life.”) to the ramifications of fictional celebrity hookups (“Drake and Taylor Swift are dating! Albums y’all!”). But where he really nails the whole Millennial POV thing is when he comments on America’s second favorite past-time after type II diabetes: baseball.

Here are a few pearls.

On Baseball’s Lasting Cultural Relevance

“Baseball’s one of those old-timey things you don’t need anymore. Like cursive. Or email.”

On The Dramatic Value Of Double-Headers

“The only thing dumber than playing two boring-ass baseball games in one day is putting a two-hour delay between the boring-ass games.”

On Sartorial Tradition

“Is dressing badly just a thing for baseball, because that would explain his jacket.”

On Baseball, In A Nutshell

“Baseball is a f-cked up sport, and I want you to know it.”

And if you were born before the late ’80s and want to know what the kids think about Baseball, watch Brockmire Wednesdays at 10P on IFC.

On Brockmire, Jules is the unexpected yin to Jim Brockmire’s yang. Which is saying a lot, because Brockmire’s yang is way out there. Played by Amanda Peet, Jules is hard-drinking, truth-spewing, baseball-loving…everything Brockmire is, and perhaps what he never expected to encounter in another human.

“We’re the same level of functional alcoholic.”


But Jules takes that commonality and transforms it into something special: a new beginning. A new beginning for failing minor league baseball team “The Frackers”, who suddenly about-face into a winning streak; and a new beginning for Brockmire, whose life gets a jumpstart when Jules lures him back to baseball. As for herself, her unexpected connection with Brockmire gives her own life a surprising and much needed goose.

“You’re a Goddamn Disaster and you’re starting To look good to me.”

This palpable dynamic adds depth and complexity to the narrative and pushes the series far beyond expected comedy. See for yourself in this behind-the-scenes video (and brace yourself for a unforgettable description of Brockmire’s genitals)…

Want more about Amanda Peet? She’s all over the place, and has even penned a recent self-reflective piece in the New York Times.

And of course you can watch the Jim-Jules relationship hysterically unfold in new episodes of Brockmire, every Wednesday at 10PM on IFC.

It’s no wonder at all, then, that Sam Adams would reach out to Brockmire to be their shockingly-honest (and inevitably short-term) new spokesperson. Unscripted and unrestrained, he’ll talk straight about Sam—and we’ll take his word. Check out this new testimonial for proof:
