Chris Evans may be iconic for playing Captain America -- and a little infamous for his stint as the Human Torch -- but his favorite childhood superhero might not be either of those guys.

The Hollywood Reporter interviewed Evans to discuss his role as Steve Rogers, as well as answer fun little questions from fans. When asked who his favorite superhero was, Evans had this to say:

"I'll say Batman. I really liked -- I mean, I probably shouldn't say that, you know, DC, I might get in trouble -- but those Michael Keaton movies. Those were pretty big. So yeah, I'd say Batman."

It might seem surreal watching the face of the Marvel Cinematic Universe praise a DC hero. However, modern fans may forget that the original Tim Burton Batman films were, for a time, the only superhero films to achieve mainstream popularity.

The interview goes on to feature Evans answering other light-hearted questions, from topics ranging from his thoughts on his tenure as Cap to the posters he had on his wall as a kid.

When asked about his last memory from the set of Avengers Endgame, Evans replied, "Uh, getting emotional on the last day of filming. It was surprisingly emotional."

When asked if there were any props or costumes he kept from playing Steve Rogers, Evans confirmed, "They gave me the shield. They gave me the cowl. I never asked for the full suit....[Chris] Hemsworth got the full suit. I want the full suit."

And, when asked about his favorite scene from all the Marvel films, he confirmed it was the fight scene from Captain America: Civil War where he and Bucky gang up on Iron Man.

Evans took extra time to note that he wasn't a very cool kid, recalling how he didn't have very cool posters on his walls as a teen (leaving it vague). One can only wonder how teenage Chris Evans would feel knowing thousands of kids now have posters of him on their walls.
