Evans, who already suits up as Captain America in Marvel Studios’ superhero films, goes into combat again in the ad that was produced exclusively for the Chinese market. “Call of Duty Online” launches there Jan. 11.
In the video, he appears guns blazing as he rescues soldiers pinned down by enemies.
“Who does he think he is? Some kind of Hollywood action hero?” asks one of the soldiers.
Chinese filmmakers Longman Leung and Sunny Luk directed the spot. They also helmed the Hong Kong thriller “Cold War.”
Activision is releasing “Call of Duty Online” through Chinese Internet giant Tencent.
The free-to-play online version of the military actioner was Activision’s workaround in a country that has long banned videogame consoles.
Evans joins a growing roster of celebrities who have appeared in Activision’s “Call of Duty” campaigns, including Robert Downey Jr., Jonah Hill, Megan Fox and Taylor Kitsch.
