• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Chris-evans 2519.jpg

An American actor best known for his smart alec and pretty boy type roles which include the desperate Every Man protagonist Ryan in the terribly fun Cellular, Johnny Storm aka The Human Torch in the Fantastic Four movies, and "Harvard Hottie" in The Nanny Diaries. He's usually considered the best part of whatever bad movie he is in.

Though he's never shied away from more serious roles (Sunshine, Push, London), it was still a great surprise to the mainstream public when Marvel announced him as their choice to play the strait-laced and serious minded Captain America in their Marvel universe movies.

Not to be confused with the British DJ and TV presenter of the same name


  • Actually Pretty Funny: No one has ever managed to successfully insult Chris Evans because no one can. He takes jokes at his expense really well.
  • Character Tics: Always grasps his left pec while laughing.
  • Creator Backlash: The one time he differed from his onscreen persona was in Captain America: Civil War, stating that Steve was making very biased choices and that he would be on Team Iron Man.
  • I Am Not Spock: He's very proud of having played Cap, to the point of being referred to as such more often than not, but has expressed a desire to distance himself from the role and branch out once again now that he's bowed out of the MCU.
  • Memetic Outfit: That glorious sweater in Knives Out.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Not quite to Chris Hemsworth's extent, but the MCU showed off his glorious physique whenever it could. As they said, he has "America's ass."
  • Promoted Fanboy: In his own words when discussing Lightyear, "working with Pixar is a dream come true".
