Chris Evans’ Abs Steal The Show In ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’
Avengers: Age of Ultron may have earned $187.7 million at the domestic box office opening weekend, but the real winners appear to be Chris Evans’ fans, who got a front row seat to his Captain America abs.
Fans Love Chris Evans’ Abs In Age of Ultron
It’s no secret all Avengers actors work hard to get in superhero shape, particularly Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Evans as Captain America, who both have to appear onscreen as living gods (for Thor, it’s literally in his character description).
Unfortunately for diehard fangirls, Evans doesn’t have a shirtless scene in Age of Ultron – that honor belongs to Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/The Hulk and Hemsworth’s Thor. However, there is a sequence in which audiences get up close and personal with Evans’ abs. The scene in question features [SPOILER ALERT] Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America cutting wood while hiding from Ultron with the rest of the Avengers. Though not shirtless, Evans wears a very tight-fitting shirt.
The clip was leaked in October of 2014, but fans were still excited to see it on the big screen.

I mean, I’m OK with looking at Chris Evans’ abs in 3D. Fine with me. I’d look at them all day long if you asked me to.

With a running time of 2.5 hrs, Ultron better include 23 minutes of gratuitous shots of Chris Evans’ ass & abs and Hemsworth’s arms.

As for how Evans himself feels about all the attention being given to his abdominals, he doesn’t seem so thrilled, telling E! News, “It is what it is.”
Evans has been busy on the Avengers: Age of Ultron press tour, where he was recently made to focus on a different body part when the cast was challenged to identify each other by bicep.
Meanwhile, fans will get a chance to catch a glimpse of Evans’ abs when he suits up for Captain America: Civil War. Evans has been keeping his Captain America body superhero ready, as he just announced on Twitter that production on the third Captain America has begun.
Dear beard We had a good run, but this is where I leave you. Thank you for braving the Boston winter with me. I miss you already #Cap3Begins
