It seems like an eternity ago, but just a year ago, moviegoers around the globe emerged from multiplexes stunned, shocked, and otherwise shook by Avengers: Infinity War. Ten years and 20, interconnected, universe-expanding movies didn’t prepare them for the utter and complete defeat of the Avengers and Thanos’ overwhelming victory. In a snap felt around the universe, Thanos extinguished half of all life sentient life, including many (actually, most) of the superheroes who’ve made their home in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) over the previous decade. Even knowing that Avengers: Infinity War was just part one of a two-part, superhero epic did little to give moviegoers a sense of hope, however small, that the MCU would be restored to balance – not Thanos’ idea of genocidal balance – but where might and right stood together on one side of the wish-fulfillment equation against cosmic forces of evil and where individual and collective heroism, super or otherwise, clearly and simply mattered.

Just last month, the the nerd world bid adieu to Hugh Jackman as he stepped into Wolverine’s shoes one last time in the movie Logan. As Jackman said goodbye, it meant only a matter of time before other stars started walking away from the superhero roles so many of us have become accustomed to seeing them in. One big name that comes up constantly is Chris Evans, who has been the subject of this discussion for quite some time. However, in a recent interview, he thought that there was someone else who may step down before him. To find out who else could be joining them in retirement, skip past the jump.
Immediately following World War II, the Ku Klux Klan experienced a sudden resurgence in popularity, specifically in the South where it originated in order to combat what members perceived as threats to the white race from various ethnic and religious groups. For awhile their influence grew unchecked and unchallenged by law enforcement until their ranks were infiltrated by an author and Human Rights activist named Stetson Kennedy who, by enlisting the help of Superman, brought low the racist organization, decimating its ranks. 70 years later, Chris Evans, now indelibly identified as Captain America, is taking up the mantle.
Holy Hellicarrier! It looks like Captain America and Nick Fury will face off over Super Bowl LI. Super-Falcons-Fan Samuel L.

Ever dreamed of teaming up with Captain America? Who hasn’t? Short of an adventurous night out with an outgoing Cosplayer, being buddy buddy with ole Cap is only ever a fantasy in the minds eye. But what if there was a chance to spend a day with Captain America actor Chris Evans – to be held up in a mysterious room together as you’re forced to combine your wits and escape a seemingly inescapable room? Alright, maybe not everyone has pictured that exact scenario but the opportunity for it is here! (more…)
One of the greatest concerns for actors is that if they have a really great role that everybody loves them in, then there’s a very good chance that they might end up being typecast. The thought is probably in Chris Evans’ head since he leads one of the most successful series inside the greater Marvel Studios universe as Captain America. Everybody loves Evans’ take on the Star-Spangled Avenger, a character that’s admittedly hard to pull off and find nuance without making him a boy scout, but now it seems like Evans is going another way. Chris Evans has just been cast in the ultimate multiple personality story. (more…)
Word is making the Internet rounds that Donald Glover (Community, The Martian) is in early talks to join the cast of Marvel and Sony‘s upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. Tom Holland made his first appearance as the new Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War alongside Iron-Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans), which placed Spider-man firmly in the Marvel Universe.
