Chris Evans' Comedy Captain

Chris Evans says 'Captain America: The First Avenger' will have comedy moments.

The 29-year-old star - who plays the titular superhero in the comic-book adaptation - admits the project will be a "happy medium" between 'Batman' and 'Spider-Man' and there will be some comic relief for the audience.

He said: "They did mix in some good comedy. It's not comedy on the nose, we're not cracking jokes, but they did find away to add humour."

Discussing the "gloss" of the movie, he added: "I definitely asked the director Joe Johnston, 'What kind of gloss are we going for here? Is this going to have the kind of 'Spider-Man', 'Fantastic Four' shine?'

"He said it's not going to be that glossy, not that colourful, but we're not going as dark as something like 'Batman'.

"I think it will be a nice, happy medium."

Chris also admits he has admiration for the 'Iron Man' films because of their successful balance between the fantastical and reality.

He told MTV News: "I think the world of 'Iron Man' was done really well. It stayed grounded in reality and yet still stayed true to the fact that it's a comic book movie, so it does have to have some life to it."

'Captain America: The First Avenger' is due to hit cinemas in July 2011.
