Chris Evans got his hands dirty in doing stunts. On Thursday, the Avengers star shared a photo collage of a giant bruise he endured. He got the bruise on his forearm and he called it a “little tussle” while working on the upcoming spy thriller, The Gray Man.
He posted the picture to his Instagram and showed the massive contusion which seemed to get darker and larger with every image. The Marvel star joked in the caption, “It’s like watching the leaves turn in autumn, but condensed into one painful afternoon.” He further added that he got into a little tussle with the Gray Man.
Chris also captioned the shot with a hashtag of the Netflix movie’s title. The upcoming venture is also featuring Ryan Gosling and it is based on the 2009 Mark Greaney novel with the same name. It revolves around a freelance assassin and former CIA operative as he’s hunted across the world by a former member of his team.
The GrayMan will be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and the project is set to premiere a new franchise. This franchise will be revolving around Ryan’s character of Court Gentry. The GrayMan will have a busget of $200 million as per reports.
This is not the first time the Russo brothers are working with Chris as they have previously collaborated for several Marvel movies. Anthony revealed back in July that the venture is a “real mano” between the two “great actors”. He said they both represent two different versions of the CIA.
“For those who were fans of Captain America: Winter Soldier, this is us moving into that territory in more of a real-world setting,” he continued. “That’s what this movie really means for us.” Meanwhile Joe talked about the movie’s scale as he said that the intention is for it to be competitive with any theatrical movie. He added it is also the ability to do it with Ryan and Chris which is a dream for them.
He added, “These are master assassins and Gosling’s character gets burned by the CIA and Evans’ character has to hunt him down. We have a great working relationship with Netflix, and we go back almost 20 years with Scott Stuber. We formed AGBO to be an agnostic storytelling company, where we figure out the best platform. We think Netflix is the perfect place for this film.”
