According to an interview with Moviefone, Chris Evans was asked about the biggest difference between shooting The Avengers and Captain America. That’s when the actor began by sharing his experience of filming both movies and proceeded to discuss his worries and explain his reasons.  

Oh my God, I love sharing the workload. On ‘Captain America,’ I worked every single day — every single f-cking day — for six months. Sometimes six days a week. We finished the movie and it was just exhausting. Like, literally, I needed like a month to not move. ‘Avengers’? I work, maybe, two days a week. Oh, it’s the best. It was like summer camp.”

I really liked the script. Everyone in the cast… I’ve done a million movies with Scarlett. I’ve known Hemsworth a while, he was great. And everyone is so cool: Downey and Ruffalo and everyone’s so f-cking cool. The movie could have been — I mean, it could have been a sh-t show. If we all didn’t get along, it just could have been such a disaster. But it couldn’t have gone better.” 

After working in a standalone movie, Evans was obvious to feel worried about The Avengers, which had a bunch of superheroes played by a stellar cast. But eventually, it’s a good thing that the cast had a fun experience and got along with each other. Otherwise, the actor’s doubts would have come true, resulting in a box office disaster.
