Stan Lee, the father of the Marvel universe, has seen so many of the wonderful characters that he had a hand in creating become realized on the big, and small, screen by a bevy of talented actors. When appearing on Larry King's talk show the comic book icon was asked whether there is a particular actor among that group he has become close to.
He chose, Chris Evans. The Mystery Date model-turned-actor has played two Marvel characters: Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in Tim Story's Fantastic Four films and Captain America/Steve Rogers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Stan has appeared in all 6 Marvel films Evans has starred in.
Larry King: Who is the Marvel actor that you've bonded with the most?
Stan Lee: The Marvel actor? Chris, the fellow who plays Captain America.
Larry King: Oh, he's a good actor.
Stan Lee: He was The Human Torch...
Larry King: Was?
Stan Lee: And then they made him Captain America. And he's the greatest guy! But I love them all!
