Captain America may be touching down for his second solo movie but officially 'Captain America: Winter Soldier' is the ninth movie in the overall Avengers franchise series. The movie held its world premiere in Hollywood on March 13th where its star Chris Evans, who is no stranger to playing superheroes, explained the stresses of taking on an iconic character. SOUNDBITE Captain America actor Chris Evans, saying (English): "Knowing that people will see it. Sometimes if a movie doesn't do well, the silver lining, the blessing, is that no one is going to see it. Movies like this will be seen. So every take you give, every moment you have, whether it's good or bad, it's going to be seen, it's going to be scrutinized so there's an added pressure and expectation and I think you really have to respect that." Evans' co-star Scarlett Johansson who plays the feisty Black Widow avoided interviews at the premiere amid reports that she is pregnant. Samuel L. Jackson is back as Nick Fury, the boss of both the Black Widow and Captain America, while Sebastian Stan makes his debut as Captain America's new nemesis, the Winter Soldier, who appears to have more than a few similarities to the shield-toting patriot. Box office predictors are estimating that the film is expected to gross up to 90 million dollars in its opening weekend when 'Captain America: Winter Soldier' is released on April 4th.
