We're still a few months away from the premiere of "Conan The Barbarian," but that doesn't mean Marcus Nispel's reboot of the popular movie franchise based on Robert E. Howard's sword-swinging barbarian isn't on our minds around MTV Splash Page HQ.

As part of our Summer Movie Preview Week, we chatted up "Conan the Barbarian" star Jason Momoa to find out how he prepped for the role and whether he's nervous about living up to Arnold Schwarzenegger's famous portrayal of the character.

At this point, we've seen a lot of Chris Evans as Captain America in the World War II-era "The First Avenger," but will he sport a similar look once he's thawed out in the modern day? Apparently not, according to Evans.

"[It's a] new costume," Evans told MTV News of Captain America's visual change-up in the 2012 blockbuster. "Yeah, it's awesome. It's really cool." Read More...

Captain America: The First Avenger” arrives in theaters this July and even the star, Chris Evans, has yet to see the whole film. Still, he said he’s seen parts of it — and what he’s witnessed has made him proud.
