You may have read that the running time for Avengers: Endgame is hovering at just over the three-hour mark, but few outside of the core team of filmmakers had actually seen the film at this point. One person who can claim to at least have seen some – and probably all – of it, even in unfinished form, is Captain America himself, Chris Evans. And, shockingly, he appears to have enjoyed it, even if he admits to becoming emotional.

"Man," he tells The Hollywood Reporter. "This one's really good. I choked up like three times." He goes on to talk more specifically but, and we can't stress this enough, jokingly. "It's hard. Seeing my own death. It's going to be a long movie, that's for sure. The first edit clocked in over three hours. My funeral's like an hour."

Yes, yes, very funny Mr-I-can-talk-about-this-stuff-because-I'm-Steve-Rogers, but who is going to come and comfort the Empire Pod team? Actually, they're offering an open invite on that front. And he's got more to say.

"After I die by Tony's hand, I just said, You know what? I can't watch this," he says elsewhere in the piece. "I can't believe they even cut together a trailer, because so much of it is a visual spoiler. You'll see. A lot of the characters have... Probably shouldn't have even said that." Oh great. If he wasn't planning to hang up his shield before, he may be forcibly retired by his paymasters. Let's just hope they don't try anything in an elevator{ =nofollow}, though.

For more from Evans about his early days as Cap, his use of Twitter and what other people think of him (spoiler alert: it's positive), head to the Reporter's site{ =nofollow}.

Avengers: Endgame, hourlong Cap funeral or no, hits UK screens on 25 April. If you haven't seen them, take a look at the recent character posters and featurette.
