Fantastic Four - Chris Evans interview



Compiled by: Jack Foley

Q. Was bringing to life some of these extraordinary comic book characters part of the allure for you?
A:
Sure, among other things, but there were a lot of things that drew me to this project. Mainly, that it was with people who'd familiarised themselves with the territory. Fox had a big success with X-Men, our producer, Avi Arad, had big success with Spider-Man, so if you're going to try and tackle a comic book film, you want to try and be in company that knows their surroundings.

Q. If you had a super-power for the weekend? How would you enjoy it?
A:
I've always wanted to fly, it would be a beautiful way to see the world. I'd travel, see the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, Mount Everest - what wouldn't seem beautiful from 500 feet in the air?

Q. After the box office success, are you now locked into a new franchise and facing the possibility of more movies?
A:
I couldn't be more excited. I look at it as a second chance, a round two. I feel like everyone involved, especially myself personally... you're always your own worst critics; you see your performance, you see the way the film was structured and what our final product was, and you know immediately what we could have done to make it better.
So if we do number two, it's just exciting to know exactly what I personally can do to bring my game up. I think everyone involved, not just actors, but writers, special effects guys, everyone, can see what worked and what didn't.
It's almost like the second one can do nothing but improve.
