31 Awe-Inspiring Facts You Didn’t Know About The First Avenger – Chris Evans

However, Joon-ho had reservations in casting him in the lead role, as his character should not be physically fit, and his muscular physique was the opposite of what they wanted. In the movie, careful costuming and perfect camera angles kept his physique from showing.
