Captain America, Captain Marvel and Nick Fury discuss the Marvel Universe, career highlights and unknown facts about their lives before they were famous.

Chris Evans (Captain America), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel) and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) each recently covered their own issues of The Hollywood Reporter, during which they sat down to discuss their respective roles in the Marvel Universe and the filming of the Avengers franchise.

Chris Evans, who could leave his role as Captain America after Avengers: Endgame, called his final day of filming "surprisingly emotional."

Brie Larson, the first female superhero to lead a Marvel filma film that grossed $1 billion worldwide, plays Captain Marvel. Larson says she filmed Avengers: Endgame before the script for Captain Marvel was even complete.

Samuel L. Jackson, who portrays Nick Fury in the franchise, said his own character is his favorite Avenger before correcting himself to say that Black Widow, played by Scarlett Johansson, is actually his favorite.

    The Captain America star shared his favorite scene in all the Marvel films, choosing the first elevator fight scene from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. "The first Cap movie, you really felt like everyone was holding my hand. The first Avengers movie I just did my best to not get in the way. The second Cap movie is the one that I really felt, I suppose, pressure, and that first elevator fight scene came out really great in my opinion."

    "I do sometimes wish that I could shoot photon blasts," Larson said as to which of Captain Marvel's powers she wish she had, "but I think practically speaking, I'd rather fly."

  • Samuel L. Jackson

    "I'd have to say Spider-Man," Jackson said when asked who was harder to keep in line, Captain Marvel or Spider-Man? "He's a little more energetic and he's kind of all over the place, but I like him." Tom Holland is the most recent actor to portray iconic comic book figure, Spider-Man.
