The very delectable Chris Evans is finally stepping away from his Captain America alter-ego and doing movies that are way more mortal and down-to-earth, even if they remain as action-packed as the ones from the MCU.
We last saw Evans as one of the baddies in the Daniel Craig thriller “Knives Out” and as one of the very good guys in the 2019 movie, “Red Sea Diving Resort” as well.
And now, he’s all set to start in a spy flick on Netflix and getting beat up on the same. Scroll to know more…
Tussling With Ryan Gosling?
The Netflix adaptation of “The Gray Man”, originally a novel from Mark Greaney stars Ryan Gosling as Court Gentry, while Evans plays Lloyd Hansen.
Both of them are CIA operatives and Hansen is apparently hunting Gentry, although there is always some changes between the novel and the movie.
It is also one of Netflix’s biggest budget movies yet, being made at a cost of $200 million.
While no official looks are out yet, Instagram leaks have started, and this may be Evans’ look for the movie…
With Ana de Armas, Again
The movie also has a cast of international stars. Along with Ryan Gosling and Chris Evan providing plenty of eye candy for the ladies, there is the very sexy Ana de Armas as well.
Then there is Billy Bob Thornton, Wagner Moura, Julia Butters, and Indian actor Danush K.
Plus, Netflix’s very own lover boy Regé-Jean Page has also been cast for the movie, so there is a bit for every kind of fan out there.
And since “The Gray Man” comes directed by Anthony & Joe Russo, we expect good things…
Did Ryan Gosling Cause This?
While this is not a movie promotion, 39-year-old Evans recently shared a rather colorful picture of a giant bruise on his arm, which he got as a result of “a little tussle with the Gray Man”.
And by that, he likely means Ryan Gosling.
The bruise on Evans’ arm was certainly impressive and getting darker, while being described rather poetically by Evans as, “like watching the leaves turn in autumn, but condensed into one painful afternoon”.
Does not seem that Gosling fared any better if this post is anything to go by!
Evans Is Now Everyone’s ‘Babe’
While Octavia Spencer commented on Evans’ post with “Omg can’t wait”, most of his fans wanted him to get better and used every kind of endearment for him like “babe”, “boo”, “bestie” and well, “daddy”.
One fan actually spoke up, “i like how the whole comment section is just calling chris babe.”
Meanwhile, another one decided Evans’ metaphor was more impressive, “How you still manage to turn a bruise/injury photo into an AUTUMN/TREE STAN POST is fricking outstanding LMAO ?”
It is. And here is Evans, along with the whole cast of “The Gray Man”.
Then read how Evans did not mind Lizzo drunken DM’ing him, at all!
