LOS ANGELES — On Sunday, the 2016 Teen Choice Awards saluted Chris Evans with the award for Choice Movie Actor: Sci-Fi/Fantasy as Marvel’s first Avenger Steve Rogers in “Captain America: Civil War,” which was also named Choice Movie: Sci-Fi/Fantasy.
The third installment in the “Captain America” film franchise, “Civil War” finds Rogers and armored billionaire Avenger Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) on opposite sides over superheroes registering with the government: making the Avengers go from united as ‘Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ to divided as Team Cap and Team Iron Man. Not only that, Cap, the world`s first super-soldier, becomes the shield for his long-lost best friend Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), who may or may not be responsible for a series of crimes that includes the murder of the father of T`Challa/Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), the world`s first black superhero.
Grossing over $400 million dollars domestically, “Captain America: Civil War” went on to raked in over a billion dollars worldwide: helping the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) assembled over $10 billion dollars globally.
Since 1941, Captain America remains a living legend: the ambassador for duty, patriotism, life, liberty, democracy, and justice. A kid from Brooklyn who doesn’t like bullies, Captain America is the superhero for the little guy: a good man who knows compassion, the good guy who doesn’t have a dark side, the real red-white-blue shield that is willing to pay the high price to defend freedom against the forces of tyranny, cruelty, and corruption.
Evans is set to suit up again as Cap for “Avengers: Infinity War,” which is currently scheduled for a May 4, 2018 release.
