Chris Evan may have played Captain America for the longest of time but the character wasn't his favourite superhero. Like all of us, Evans too had his favourite and surprisingly or not, it wasn't the one that was offered to him ultimately. In fact, it was his fellow Avenger and you can rest assured that it wasn't a name from DC universe. The superhero that we are talking about is your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man. Yes, Peter Parker's alter ego was Evans' favourite character and we don't judge him.

Chris in his recent conversation with South China Morning Post's STYLE Magazine revealed that though he enjoyed all the spidey antics, he would never be comfortable in playing him on-screen. "I love Captain America, but Spider-Man was my childhood hero. I would have loved doing scenes like attaching myself to the sides of buildings and trying to spring from one building to the next. But I would have hated to wear Spider-Man's mask. I'm very claustrophobic, and I doubt whether I could have worn that kind of full suit and mask for hours a day on a set," he said.
Speaking about hos he prefers his own earlier costume, the actor said, "I much prefer my Captain America outfit, which I think is cooler anyway!" Captain America wasn't the only superhero character he played in his filmy career. Chris was also a part of the Fantastic Four team where he played Johnny Storm/Human Torch.
