July 20th, 2011 // 5 Comments

It was nice that Captain America star Chris Evans had his fellow Avengers support at the premiere of his new film yesterday. Evans and Chris Hemsworth bonded during the filming of The Avengers.

They star as as Captain America and Thor, the god of thunder respectively in the new Marvel superhero adaptation alongside veterans Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson and Mark Ruffalo and Evans admitted the pair felt out of their depth at the beginning.

He explained: “[Chris] Hemsworth and I are kind of in the same boat, especially on this film. Everyone on The Avengers is so accomplished and experienced. So Hemsworth and I are kind of in unchartered waters. But it’s been great for us to have each other.

“So the first day I came on set – the thing that really did it for me was Thor. Seeing the suit was awesome. And Hemsworth – he is Thor! Have you seen him? He’s the guy! He’s huge. And his cape on and his wig – and it’s like oh my god, this guy’s the god of thunder!”

Chris was especially grateful to Robert Downey Jr. for his support:

“I can’t say enough about Robert Downey Jr. He’s been so great. He’s so positive and so available and I just didn’t know what to expect coming out of this movie. He’s so experienced. He’s so engaging and encouraging and every single take, you finish and he’s like [thumbs up sign]. You skip back to your trailer – ‘Downey gave you a pat on the back!’ He’s just amazing. I cannot say enough.”
