Reporting from the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City, I had a chance to interview actor Chris Evans about his indie film Puncture, now being screened throughout the festival. That interview will be posted later in the week.
While there, I visited Red Hook, Brooklyn where Captain America lives because, the character says, it's the one area that hasn't undergone a lot of modern development. Less than a few years after that story was written, a giant Ikea store was dropped into the neighborhood. So while talking with Evans, I had to ask...
We're already seeing reports of a Captain America sequel taking place in the modern day, do you think that would be here in New York?
Chris: Well, The Avengers takes place in New York, we're shooting in Albuquerque but it takes place in New York... with the Cap sequel I mean... I would assume yeah, I can't picture it without.. they just have to, right? But I really don't know.
So there you have it. Text doesn't really convey it fully but Evans knew exactly where I was coming from. This guy knows what he's dealing with. If Captain America's difficulty adjusting to his private life is shot anyplace but New York, it sounds like the actor playing him would be just as disappointed as anyone.
