Rising to superstardom with his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Captain America, Chris Evans has finally started venturing into independent films since his departure in Avengers: Endgame.
The actor had previously starred in Fantastic Four films, Free Guy, and had a small appearance in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, so he has a stellar portfolio in the action-comedy genre. In his latest venture, the actor will be starring in Red One alongside Dwayne Johnson.
Chris Evans’ filmography post Avengers
Many actors find it difficult to adjust after starring as an iconic character, as it was for the cast of Friends. But Chris Evans has been going strong with his roles in Knives Out as Ransom Drysdale and Apple TV+ miniseries Defending Jacob.
The actor also made his Broadway debut in the play Lobby Hero. Opening in 2018, at the Helen Hayes Theatre, his performance was well-received with New York Times noting it to be a “terrific Broadway debut.”
He returned to action films with his role in The Gray Man as the hired assassin Lloyd Hansen. The film was directed by the Russo brothers and was well-received by the fans, on release it was streamed for a total of 88.55 million hours over its first three days, as reported by Netflix.
What to expect in Red One
Directed by Jake Kasdan, many believe the film will be a blend of action and comedy. He is known for directing the two installments of Jumanji, which were well-received by the fans. Now with Red One, the director assures it will have a similar feeling to Guardians of the Galaxy.
According to the title of the film, Santa Claus might feature in the film, maybe as the villain or the protagonist of the film. On the other end, it stars charismatic actors such as Dwayne Johnson and Chris Evans.
Since both the actors come off strong performances, expectations are high though not much is known about the plot of the film, other than expected to be redefining the holiday movie genre.
Red One is expected to release sometime next year.
