Watch the scene below.
And it took a lot of training to get there, as fans have learned over the years. Some footage recently resurfaced via Reddit of Evans rehearsing the scene in a mock-off elevator with nearly a dozen well-armed bruisers. It’s a quick clip that we’ve seen before, but together with others we’ve seen over the years, it’s a reminder of just how much preparation went into the scene.
In a short clip Evans himself shared, he’s working through his moves solo, pacing out the choreography.
In another, he’s taking on a single foe, who comes at him from the front armed with what looks like a prop knife.
And finally, there’s a clip taking from the set, with Evans in full costume apologising for hitting one of his co-stars with an elbow.
Taken together, you see how much work goes into making the scene look real. Hours of time go into making sure that when square-jawed Captain America asks, “Gentlemen, before we get started, does anyone want to get out?”—you know it’s on.
