Wilman left along with Richard Hammond and James May after Jeremy Clarkson's sacking from the BBC earlier in 2015, but believes Chris Evans is the best choice to continue with the popular British show.
He may be following Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May out of the BBC to help with the trio’s new Amazon Prime show, but executive producer Andy Wilman has given his backing to ‘Top Gear’s new presenter Chris Evans.
While speaking to Broadcast magazine about the new show, Wilman was asked for his thoughts on what was going on back at the BBC with what remains of ‘Top Gear’. He said that he was satisfied with Evans’ appointment in June this year, as it demonstrated that the Beeb are serious about breathing new life into it, after he and Clarkson brought it back to the network in 2002.

Former ‘Top Gear’ hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have finally decided where they’ll be making their new motoring show. The ex-BBC trio have signed up with Amazon’s streaming video service ‘Amazon Prime’, with the first commissioned series due in 2016.
Speculation has been rife as to where their new home would be, following their departure from the BBC Two show earlier in 2015 after Clarkson’s now-infamous ‘fracas’ in March when he assaulted one of the show’s producers. Netflix, Sky and ITV had all been touted as strong possibilities in the last few months, but the US giant appears to beaten all of them to their signatures.

Clarkson said he was asked to come back to the motoring show, but BBC boss Tony Hall seems to disagree.
BBC Director General Lord Tony Hall has denied the corporation ever asked Jeremy Clarkson to return as the host of ‘Top Gear’, after the presenter claimed he was offered the gig but turned it down. Clarkson had said he had met with a BBC executive last week, who'd asked him to rejoin the show, but that he'd declined saying 'too much had gone on'.
Jeremy Clarkson says he was asked to return as ‘Top Gear’ host.
Appearing on BBC One’s ‘The Andrew Marr Show’ on Sunday, Lord Hall denied Clarkson’s claims saying, "I have no idea what all that's about…I made it absolutely clear when I said we were going to part company that that was it.”
Chris Evans had said his co-presenter would "definitely" be female.
BBC Two boss Kim Shillinglaw has played down Chris Evans's assertion that his co-presenter on Top Gear will be female. Evans, who was unveiled as Jeremy Clarkson's replacement on the motoring show, had said that he could confirm "definitely, 100 per cent" that he would be joined by a female co-host.

Marvel fans will love the action mayhem in this Avengers sequel, but everyone else will vividly feel the fatigue that has descended over this franchise. After the bright spark of originality in last summer's Guardians of the Galaxy, we're back to the same tired formula involving terrific actors battling for screen time in between gratuitous, brutal action sequences that are so digitally animated that they're technically cartoons.
The film opens in the middle of the action as Captain America (Chris Evans) leads Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye (Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner) to recapture an Asgardian sceptre. Tony then discovers that the sceptre could be useful for Ultron, his artificial intelligence project to create a global peacekeeping force. But this goes badly wrong as Ultron (James Spader) springs to life and decides instead to obliterate humanity to make space for his population of smart machines. So the team races from America to Africa, Korea and Eastern Europe, facing off against Ultron and his super-powered twin cohorts Pietro and Wanda (Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen), who of course defect to the Avengers. They also get help from a human-computer entity called The Vision (Paul Bettany).
Yes, there are a lot of characters in this film, and writer-director Joss Whedon is exceptionally good at giving each of them something to do, both dramatically and in the thick of the action. These brief moments of humour and emotional depth are what make the movie enjoyable, giving the solid actors some meaty material to play with.

While other recent promotional interviews for 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' have been interesting, none have been as funny or wacky as Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans'.

"Lovers, kindred souls, kindred spirits", said Hemsworth, while discussing the relationship between Thor and Captain America. Evans jumped in by revealing: "We wear necklaces with a little broken heart, and when we put them together." But when they tried to draw a comparison between themselves and another movie, they found themselves with different opinions.
Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Chris Evans (Captain America) took some time to talk about the upcoming 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' in an interview. The two actors discussed how they continued to play their established characters in a new and interesting way, as well as explaining how they all felt that filming the movie was like attending a party. The two actors also explained their reaction to the arrival of new faces on the set, in the form of Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen, and how well they fit into the family dynamic that was going on at the time.

The superhero duo made a special appearance as the result of a Super Bowl bet.

It was the pair’s second hospital visit after they placed a bet on which of their teams would win the Super Bowl in February. If Pratt’s team (the Seattle Seahawks) won, Evans had agreed to visit the Seattle Children’s Hospital dressed as Captain America, while if Evans’ team (the New England Patriots) were successful, Pratt had promised to visit Christopher’s Haven, in Boston, as his Guardians of the Galaxy character, Star-Lord. Despite the win by Evans and the New England Patriots, the two men kept up both ends of their bargain and visited children at both hospitals dressed as their superhero counterparts.

A lot has happened since the Battle of New York. The world was attacked by Norse God, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), causing a united force of tech super-hero Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), reanimated World War Two super soldier Captain America (Chris Evans) and Loki's brother - the Norse God of thunder, Thor (Chris Hemsworth).

The creators of 'The Lego Movie' have hinted they would like the Marvel superheroes to appear in 'The Lego Movie 2.' Here's our pick of the top five that we'd like to see.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the writer/director dream team behind the hugely successful The Lego Movie have said that they would love to feature Marvel heroes in The Lego Movie 2. The sequel, which is provisionally set to come out in May 2017, will be directed by Chris McKay, rather than Miller and Lord.
The Lego Movie won over even the harshest critics to become one of the biggest films of 2013
Both have admitted it would be difficult to make it work with Marvel in The Lego Movie 2 because of legal issues. The Lego Movie was made by Warner Bros, so they were able to use all of the DC superheroes, as they are owned by Warner. Superman, the Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and The Flash all featured in the first Lego Movie, but would Marvel allow Warner to use their characters?

Can anyone knock Captain America off the US box office top spot?
It seems there really is no defeating Captain America, as The Winter Solider has topped the US box office again for the third straight week, what's more the movie has now passed the $200million box office mark. Not fairing so well over the Easter holiday however was Johnny Depp, who is suffering another box office flop as Transcendence only managed to enter in 4th place.
Chris Evans reigns supreme as Captain America
This week, Captain America: The Winter Solider took on the star power of Johnny Depp whose new movie Transcendence opened to negative reviews. According to studio estimates, The Winter Solider took around $26 million at the box office, whilst Depp’s offering only managed $11 million, coming in on fourth place. Sadly for Depp, Transcendence marks his third box office flop in a row after The Lone Ranger and Dark Shadows.
This week's newcomer, "Transcendence", seems to be underperforming.
The weekend box office continues to offer no surprised this week, with the Johnny Depp starrer Transcendence looking like a flop and likely to take fourth place behind previous chart toppers. The real fight is once again between Marvel’s latest blockbuster, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the animated hit Rio 2. The jungle adventure (that’s Rio, in case you’re one of the few out there, who haven’t seen either) is looking likely to take the top spot this week, by the minimal margin of $2 million over Cap.
Despite Johnny Depp's star power, Transcendence is barely making a ripple at the box office.
Rio 2 is predicted to make roughly $27 million over the three day period, while Captain America is predicted similar earnings to last weekend - $25 million, according to Variety. Winter Soldier has grossed almost $510 million worldwide ($175 million domestically), while Rio 2 has tallied $177.2 million ($53 million domestically) through Thursday.

A strong second week saw the Cap' reign supreme
Captain America: The Winter Soldier fought off some pretty serious opposition to maintain its position at the top of the box office, while three newcomers usurped the majority of last week’s top 5. Box Office Mojo have the stats.
Chris Evans in Captain America: Winter Soldier
With Chris Evans reprising his role as the all-American hero, the critics have been kind to the latest instalment of Marvel’s imperious quest to move their properties onto the big screen. ‘Cap’ managed a hefty weekend gross of $41.3m, bringing its total domestic gross up to $159m and its worldwide total to a hugely impressive $476.7m.
The latest instalment from Marvel Studio's enjoys a second week as the No.1 movie in North American cinemas, earning $41.4 million.
Marvel's latest film adaptation, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', is still the main choice for cinemagoers in North America as it continues to reign No.1 at the Box Office after its record breaking opening last weekend.
Chris Evans returns in the starring role as the 'Captain'
The sequel to 2011's 'Captain America: The First Avenger,' and the ninth instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe earned an impressive $41.4 million in its second weekend of release, which now brings the film's domestic earnings to a total of $159 million.
Is another film capable of knocking 'The Lego Movie' off the number spot for highest-grossing movie of 2014? We think so...
The Lego Movie is sitting firmly atop the highest grossing movies of 2014 list, having raked in over $410 million. The animated film has been a huge hit with cinema goers and critics, although we’re not even half way through the year yet, there’s still time for it be knocked off the top spot.
The Lego Movie is currently the highest grossing movie of 2014
It looks as though Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which has only been on the big screen for a couple of weeks, could easily come along and steal its crown. It’s already taken over $308 million at the box office, which sounds impressive but still leaves it at the number three spot, $16 million behind 300: Rise of an Empire. There’s still time, Captain America.

There's one more Cap movie coming. In other news, still no Black Widow solo flick.
Attention Marvel fans! Captain America 3 is happening! It’s happening soon, in fact, as Marvel have just announced a release date for the third film. Who knew Cap could become such a global superstar! Given Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s record breaking box-office success, the studio has announced the first Avenger’s return for 2016. Marvel will release the as-of-yet-untitled Captain America 3 on May 6, 2016, according to Deadline. Fanboys and girls need not wonder why that date sounds familiar – this is also the release date for another high-profile superhero flick, DC’s Batman vs. Superman, the final title for which is alsp TBA at this point.
Who wouldn't want more of this?
If that’s not a challenge that Marvel have issued there, we don’t know what is. But it looks like the studio can afford to. Unlike DC, who only have one movie from their potential franchise released at this point (and a not-too-successful one at that), Marvel have been cranking out Avengers flicks since 2004 and frequently reaching the billion dollar success mark with them.
