After the leaving the opening of Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure Park to Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson, Evans did make it to a Disney theme park this month, giving a star-spangled man’s endorsement to “Crush’s Coaster.”
Unique to Disneyland Paris, the Finding Nemo-themed, dark-ride indoor coaster takes on a blend of Seven Dwarf’s Mine Train and Space Mountain.

Brothers Visit Last Disney Park on the List
Meanwhile, the Russo brothers have made Disney a family affair. The brothers noted that they had been “taking [their] kids to Disney parks for 23 years and Paris was the last park to cross off our list. It did not disappoint!”.

The Russo brothers gained acclaim directing the comedy sitcoms like “Arrested Development” and “Happy Endings”. Despite their comedy pedigree, they were chosen by Marvel to direct the spy thriller, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” starring Chris Evans.
This movie is considered the favorite by most hardcore Marvel fans and gave the Russos the clout to direct three more Marvel films including the massive blockbusters, “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame.”
All this time together has forged a friendship between the Russos and Evans that extends beyond European visits to Disney. Rumors continue to swirl around a Disney+ show featuring Evans returning the Infinity Stones post “Avengers: Endgame.”
For now, Evans joins the pair again for the feature film, “The Gray Man,” which also stars Ryan Gosling, Alfre Woodard, Ana de Armas, Regé-Jean Page, and Billy Bob Thorton.
