Chris Evans, aka Captain America, once revealed who his favorite superhero was growing up, and no, it’s not someone from Marvel. In fact, it’s DC’s Batman. The actor is known for playing the iconic Avenger in the MCU. Not only that, he also played the role of Human Torch in the Fantastic Four series, based on the Marvel comic.
Either way, anyone who is so involved in the Marvel Cinematic Universe must have had some superhero inspiration growing up, just like Evans. But it turns out not to be someone from his multiverse. It’s not even someone from the Marvel comics.
In 2019, just before the release of Avenger: Endgame, Chris Evans made headlines by revealing that his favorite superhero growing up was none other than DC’s Caped Crusader, aka Batman. While speaking on The Hollywood Reporter’s “Fishing for Answers” segment, the Knives Out actor was asked the burning question. He revealed that he wasn’t that fond of comic books and that he liked cartoons more.
Chris Evans said, “I wasn’t that cool, I liked cartoons more, like Bugs Bunny and Looney Toons, that sort of thing,” then went on to talk quite a bit about his favorite superhero from his childhood. “I say Batman. I really liked that, I mean I probably shouldn’t say that DC, it’s… I don’t want to get in trouble. But those Michael Keaton movies, they were pretty big, so yeah. I say Batman.” he said.
Given that DC has been on screen longer than Marvel, it’s understandable why Evans had the Dark Knight as his favorite superhero. As DCEU expands itself, a new vigilante movie comes out and Robert Pattinson makes his debut as Bruce Wayne.
The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves, will be released in March. Meanwhile, Chris Evans has a number of projects in the pipeline, including Lightyear, and it was recently announced that he would be joining Dwayne Johnson’s new action movie, Red One.
