Like the Captain America of Old, Chris Evans Tell Us What We Need to Hear
If you follow us on Twitter, you’re cool – but you also know I’m not a fan of this new volume of Captain America. The writing is boring and the character’s all wrong. Old School Captain America always knew what to do because he’s not just the champion of ideals, he is the ideal, and actor Chris Evans, who portrays the Star Spangled Avenger on the big screen, fits that tradition like a glove.
In an interview he gave to The Advocate (which I cannot find – thanks Google!), he had this to say on gay marriage:
“Are you kidding me? It’s insane that civil rights are being denied people in this day and age. It’s embarrassing and it’s heartbreaking. It goes without saying that I’m completely in support of gay marriage. In 10 years we’ll be ashamed that this was an issue.”
SWISH! Did the Captain hit the nail on the head or what? Chris Evans deserves some big ups for not wimping out and letting his shield fly. Good job, Cap – now go punch us some bad guys!
