"I've made some spotty films in the past, and I didn't want another one on this scale."
- On wearing the costume:
"When I first put on the suit, I was absolutely terrified. But once I started working, I could just see this was going to be a good experience. Then I started going, 'Wow. This is really cool.' I can’t believe I was almost too chicken to play Captain America."
