Captain America: The First Avenger Behind The Shield Featurette
A new, short featurette for Captain America: The First Avenger has arrived, which features star Chris Evans talking about the different shields he used as Steve Rogers during the production of this epic Marvel adventure. Check out the video below.
"The whole thing about throwing the shield was given a lot of thought. And you know he just doesn't do it a lot in the movie. I'd say maybe four of five times? But when he does, it's a big deal; he really saves the day.He's not slinging it around all the time and using it randomly. He throws it when it's the right thing to do, and those are special moments. We opted to preserve those moment just to make them so special. He uses the shield a lot for protection, as you would expect, and as a weapon, like a battering ram; he slams it down almost like an ax of sorts, and he uses it as a pry bar. But when he throws it, those are the highlight-reel moments."
