12. Chris Evans in Captain America and Avengers series
To transform into Captain America, Chris Evans had to completely overhaul his lifestyle. Previously more known for his comedic roles (and as Johnny Storm in the Fantastic Four series), Evans shed that persona to embody the all-American hero. Marvel sent over a trainer from London to work with Evans, who called the two-hour per day workouts “brutal”. Evans said he hit the gym four to five days a week for three months, focusing on two muscle groups per session. Evans told NBC’s Extra that the trickiest part was eating right, since a lot of the food he had to eat were “bland pieces of chicken, rice, and meat”. Clearly, the training worked. Evans’ portrayal of Steve Rogers is a fan-favorite in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Cap seems to get more and more swole in every film. Cap looks more badass than ever in the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War.
