Team Captain America — Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan and Paul Rudd — visited “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday to promote a new trailer showing Ant-Man meeting Captain America.

“I’m shaking your hand too long,” Scott Lang, Rudd’s character, says to Captain America (Evans) in the trailer.

Kimmel decided to use his time with the four actors to quiz them about how well they know one another after spending months together on the set.

Here’s the fun tidbit we learn about Evans: He has memorized songs to several Disney musicals, including “Little Mermaid” and “Aladdin.” (Talk about a soft side).

And of KC hometown favorite Rudd, we learn his great-great grandfather shortened the family name from Ruddnitski (or, at least, that’s what we heard).

We’ll likely be seeing more teasers for the upcoming Marvel heroes saga “Captain America: Civil War,” opening May 6.

There’s been a Twitter battle between #TeamCap and #TeamIronMan that involves the cast, and if your name is Noah and you’re for Iron Man, Rudd’s got something to say to you.
