Captain America: The First Avenger will hit theaters nationwide on July 22. Star Chris Evans recently discussed the importance of pleasing the fans of this popular Marvel comic book series.

"It's important, you know at the end of the day we are doing this for the fans. And if they're not happy, we've missed the mark. You go in and do as much research as you can from the comic books, but you're also trying to make something your own. This is an origin story. I think a lot of the comic books deal with after he's become Captain America, so to some degree we had to take some liberties. But you want to make sure you've done your homework."

The actor also talked about the challenges of keeping his character, Steve Rogers, grounded in reality.

"You want the character to be the icon, but if you reduce him to a red, white and blue outfit it makes him shallow. It wasn't until we got our hands dirty with the script and had a good couple of scenes in the can, that I thought, 'Man, I think I'm actually getting this guy.' I feel like the character now, much more than a shield or a mask."

Chris Evans also revealed he had doubts about taking on this character at first, although he's glad he ended up taking the job.

"I wouldn't trade this movie, at this point, for anything. I'm very happy with the decision."
