Actor Chris Evans says transition from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to Rian Johnson’s “Knives Out” was pretty seamless.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actor, famous as superhero Captain America aka Steve Rogers, opened up about the process of getting into the character for Johnson’s whodunnit mystery.
“It was pretty seamless. It is kind of a group mentality, so you’re still kind of collaborating with a lot of people, and it is kind of, strangely enough, a similar family dynamic,” Evans said on the sidelines of the Toronto International Film Festival.
“A different character. In the Marvel movies, I play a guy who is a little more taciturn, a little more selfless and in this movie, I play a guy that’s a little more vile,” he added.
Johnson assembled a star cast led by Evans, Daniel Craig, Jamie Lee Curtis and Ana de Armas for the murder mystery. It had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
“The way you come to the set everyday is pretty similar and to be honest, it was just as fun. Everyone on this set, everyone’s just here to have a good time and everyone loves what they do. It’s a real blessing,” Evans said.
