Hollywood star Chris Evans says his character Llyod Hansen from The Gray Man is the antithesis of Steve Rogers/Captain Americathe fan-favorite superhero who played in several Marvel movies.

For the upcoming Netflix action flick, Evans reunited with Anthony and Joe Russo, with whom he worked on two Captain America movies, as well as two ‘Avengers’ movies.

Also starring Ryan Gosling, the film is based on Mark Greaney’s 2009 novel of the same name and revolves around freelance assassin and former CIA agent Court Gentry.

Follow Gentry (Gosling) as Lloyd Hansen (Evans), a former member of Gentry’s CIA team, chases him around the world.

“It seems that I have aggressively moved away 180 (degrees) from Steve Rogers. But he just kind of developed that way,” Evans told Empire magazine.

The 40-year-old actor called Hansen a “derailed human being.”

“That guy can be anything in any scene, because all he wants is anarchy,” Evans added.

The Knives Out star said he’s a fan of The Russo Brothers and can do “pretty much anything they ask me to do.”

“And this is a character that I have never been able to play. He is so liberated and free and honest. What I like about him is that you should almost fear his smile more than his frown. I think he understands that what he does is bad and harmful, but I think it’s considered necessary. He believes that he is a disruptor,” Evans added.

The gray man will also feature DhanushAna de Armas, Rege-Jean Page, Jessica Henwick, Billy Bob Thornton, Alfre Woodard and Wagner Moura.

The film has a limited release on July 15, followed by its premiere on Netflix on July 22.
