While #ChrisEvans has proved time and again he is capable of donning all sorts of superhero suits, from the Human Torch in Fantastic Four to our beloved #CaptainAmerica, he's never limited his roles to the comic book universe. Same goes for director #MarcWebb, who directed 500 Days of Summer before making The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Both are now returning to indie drama with #Gifted, a story of a single man named Frank raising his niece, Mary. Their comfortable little routine starts to change when Mary's teacher realizes she's incredibly intelligent, and her grandmother decides to fight for custody and put her in the spotlight she thinks such a gifted child deserves.
