This was a surprisingly thoughtful and interesting psychoanalysis, not only of Thor and Loki's relationship, but of Thinkers vs. Feelers in general.

Ah -- once I saw it was written by wellingtongoose, I wasn't so surprised that it was a good piece (s/he is a medical doctor with some experience in psychiatry).  I've also enjoyed many of wellingtongoose's Sherlock metas, especially the Sherlock medical metas (all linked to from the bar at the top of that Loki-Thor meta).  Thanks for posting!

Oh, is that so?  I'll have to take a look at more of their posts!  I'm not used to finding quite such knowledgeable content on Tumblr, lol.

A new interview with Chris Evans on his anxiety over accepting the role of Captain America and his 'retirement' from the MCU (among other topics).
 

Quote

In early 2010, Marvel Studios began searching for its Captain America. Feige says the studio was determined to cast an American as Cap, but that Evans wasn't on the initial lists for the part, mostly because he'd already played the Human Torch in two Fantastic Four films for 20th Century Fox. His Johnny Storm is a memorably douchebaggy creation — the Marvel hero most likely to accidentally-on-purpose tweet a dick pic.

"We thought, OK, well, he's that character. Let's keep looking," Feige says. "And as we [continued] not finding people, we went back to the initial lists. And that brought us back to Chris. And I thought, well, Patrick Stewart played Jean-Luc Picard and Charles Xavier. Harrison Ford played Han Solo and Indiana Jones. Who cares?"

At that point, a bit of a process ensued. Evans had been having these "little panic attacks" around the time the Cap offer came in. In the past, they'd mostly happened in the hectic weeks of media and promotion leading up to the release of a movie. Doing press has always made him self-conscious. "You feel very judged," he says, "and you're a little unsure about who you are."

As a kid, he'd spent hours drawing alone in his room, dreaming of being a Disney animator; as an adult, movie sets had become a similarly safe space for him. When he began to experience that familiar feeling of panic while shooting 2011's Puncture in Houston, he thought, "Man, if I were an animator I wouldn't be panicking." He wondered if the attacks were his subconscious warning him that he'd chosen the wrong line of work.

And that was when Marvel called. "Getting the [Captain America] offer felt to me like the epitome of temptation. The ultimate job offer, on the biggest scale. I'm supposed to say no to this thing. It felt like the right thing to do."

Evans passed on Marvel's first offer, a nine-film deal. The studio came back with a six-film contract, and Evans passed again. He accepted an invitation to visit Marvel Studios — back when the company, newly purchased by Disney, was still based out of Raleigh Studios' Manhattan Beach complex — but made it clear that he wasn't planning to change his mind.

"You see the pictures, and you see the costumes, and it's cool. But I'd now woken up the day after saying no and felt good, twice."

Marvel persisted. After consulting with close friends and a former teacher, and taking an encouraging call from Robert Downey Jr., Evans took the part — and ran straight to a therapist for the first time in his adult life. He loves therapy now, and goes whenever his schedule permits, even if nothing's particularly wrong. Downey Jr. says he's watched Evans evolve significantly in the course of their decade in the Marvel repertory.

"I've been in hundreds of scenes with this guy," Downey Jr. says. "Nobody laughs more than him. Sometimes he makes me self-conscious, like, 'Should I be more fun?' There's a little bit of, like, just trying to shake out the anxiety. And I've also seen him, over the last 10 years, go from being someone who had laughably real social anxiety to someone who has grown more and more comfortable in their own skin."

Downey Jr. may be the world's biggest Chris Evans fan. He praises his co-star as the funniest person on the "very sophisticated, laugh-your-ass-off" text-message chain through which the core Avengers cast stay in touch when they're apart. Their bond is astronaut-esque — the camaraderie of people who've shared a professional experience almost no one can relate to.

"I've spent a lot of time just in repose with this guy, on set," Downey Jr. says. "You know ­­— the shield's on the table, and we're waiting for the technocrane to get put in place. And I've had some of my greatest moments of gratitude when he was looking at me in my suit, and I was looking at him in his suit, and we're just like, 'Jesus, is this still working? How lucky are we?'"

Evans had never read Captain America — or comics in general — before he was cast. If he had, he says, he might have been even more hesitant about taking the role.

In 2008's Iron Man, Downey Jr. played Tony Stark as a cocky, cynical tech billionaire, egotistical enough to believe he can save the world — a performance that set the tone for Marvel's cinematic universe as it grew. Even in the heat of CGI-assisted battle, these movies are fundamentally about wisecracking modern adults solving problems.

Captain America was always going to be a tougher character to reframe for 21st-century audiences. Like Superman, he's an idealized figure of square-jawed rectitude whose comics debut predates the United States' entry into World War II; he was a symbol of a bygone era of moral clarity even in 1964, when Stan Lee and Jack Kirby revived the character in the pages of Marvel's The Avengers.

"There's no real darkness to him," Evans remembers thinking. "How do I make this guy someone you want to watch? I don't get jokes. I'm not Wolverine. I don't have dead parents, like Batman. I'm just, like, 'Hi, I'll walk your dog. I'll help you move.'"

"In the early days, Marvel was an independent studio," Feige says. "As we were initially getting our financing, I was meeting with completion bond companies and foreign presales — all that had to be done on the first Iron Man film. And as we were meeting buyers, one of the films I would mention was Captain America, and you could see their eyes glaze over. Like, 'Uh, what else do you have?'"

"[Evans'] suspension of his own disbelief, regardless of whatever doubts he had, is the reason all these other worlds are able to be built," says Downey. "Starting with Avengers, and then Guardians, and Black Panther. People love to say — and I'll eat it up — that I'm kind of the progenitor of this whole universe. But if you want to talk about it in terms of team building, and you want to talk about it as the most successful creative relay race in the history of cinema, he was the critical leg."

I had been planning all year to get tickets for the opening night on April 25th.  I’ve never been to an opening night event, and my local theater does fun special stuff on opening nights, so I thought this would be a good movie for that.  But opening night tickets to every theater around me were sold out literally 2 minutes after the announcement went up, lol.  I’m a little bummed, I was looking forward to it.  But at least I got the last ticket available for the following day before it too was sold out.
