Chris Evans of 'Captain America 2' took a few hits doing his own stunts

According to Daily News on March 30, during the filming of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier", Chris Evans took on some minor injuries doing his own stunts in this comic book movie. Considering he didn't wear a mask in the glass elevator scene for three days, there was no way stunt doubles could take his place, so Evans took a good bruising.

“I’m not wearing the mask in that scene so there really isn't a lot of opportunity to let a stunt man come in. If you grab someone and you have to throw them, that takes a lot of strength and energy. And if some guy has you around the neck and you’re whipping elbows and trying to throw knees, you’re going to sustain injuries. You go home beat up and bruised".

After he took on the role of Steve Rogers, he wasn't entirely fond of the attention he was getting since taking on the role. It seems he would've been better off using Captain America's shield to keep himself away from autograph opportunities or the paparazzi. He even sought counseling from a therapist in regards to taking such a high profile role. Evans, being low profile in nature himself, doesn't seem to enamored by the attention.

In "Captain America: The Winter Soldier", Steve Rogers is faced with his old war buddy Bucky Barnes, played by Sebastian Stan, who has taken on a villainous role in a rather threatening fashion. As seen in some of the trailers, both him and Captain America seem evenly matched in hand-to-hand combat.

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" opens in theaters everywhere April 4.
