According to ComicBook.com on Thursday, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier's" Chris Evans accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge following in lieu of "Iron Man's" Robert Downey, Jr. and "Thor's" Chris Hemsworth. That being said Evans did account for two "beefs" he had with people demonstrating the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
For starters, he didn't like the idea of people just pouring ice into an empty bucket and then immediately dumping the ice on one's head. In fact, he decided to take a bag of ice, pour it in the corresponding buckets on the table, and then let it marinate for 30 minutes. On top of that, he mentioned that people doing this challenge had been dressed in tank tops, bathing suits, and attire usually attributed to getting wet anyhow.
Evans took it a step further and donned a full suit ensemble as what looked to be family members dousing him in ice cold water. He felt if he were to bring awareness to a charitable cause, he figured it'd behoove him to dress for the occasion.
The irony of it all is that his character, Steve Rogers had been on ice in the North Atlantic for years before being thawed out in America in a S.H.I.E.L.D. facility. One may think the fictional version of Evans portrayed as a character on ice would channel his acting energies into being able to tolerate extreme cold temperatures of marinated ice water.
For those interested in obtaining the "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" in digital format now and will be released on Blu-ray come Sept. 9.
