The Gray Man’s Chris Evans Explains Why His Character In The Netflix Movie Is Such A Great Villain

While Chris Evans is best know for playing heroes/do-gooders, including Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and his forthcoming turn as Buzz Lightyear, the man has also dabbled in villainy over the years. Some may know him best in this regard from when he played Lucas Lee in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, while others may have enjoyed watching him cause trouble as Ransom Drysdale a few years back in Knives Out. Evans is putting his antagonist hat back on for The Gray Man, and the actor explained why this character Netflix subscribers will meet in the summer makes such a great villain.

Chris Evans stars in Netflix’s The Gray Man, based on the same-named novel by Mark Greaney, as Lloyd Hansen, who used to work with Ryan Gosling’s Court Gentry at the CIA and leads a manhunt against his former colleague when Court discovers dark secrets about the agency. The Gray Man is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, who Evans worked with four MCU movies, and the actor had the following to say to Empire about re-teaming with the duo, as well as how Lloyd differs from past roles he’s played:

I love the Russos, and I’ll pretty much do anything they ask me to do. And this is a character I’ve never been able to play. He’s so liberated, and free, and honest. What I like about him is that you should almost fear his smile more than his scowl. I think he understands that what he does is bad and harmful, but I think he considers himself necessary. He thinks he’s a disrupter.
