    Actor Chris Evans has called President Trump a “dumb s**t,” said he’s worse than a “sh**ty playground bully,” and a “reckless moron.” Now the Captain America star says he’s backing off bashing the president on social media ahead of the launch of his bipartisan political website. Evans is gearing up to launch a bipartisan website called “A Starting Point.” The platform will publish two-minute videos of interviews with elected officials on both sides of the aisle, so that the public can hear from them on a variety of subjects.

    When it comes to Twitter, Chris Evans has no problem sharing his feelings on the state of the union. In fact, the Avengers alum has more 13 million followers and his tweets tend to incite as much engagement as the president of the United States, who just happens to be one of the erstwhile Captain America’s favorite targets. Evans, who played Cap in 11 films (including four cameos) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe dating back to 2012, is known for getting political on the platform — in addition to President Donald Trump, Evans has been outspoken about former Ku Klux...

    CLARKSDALE, Miss.- The homeowner told WREG he ordered the intruder to the ground and held him for police. Police have charged David Hobbs with burglary and are holding him at the Coahoma County Jail on a $25,000 bond. Although not visible in Hobbs’ booking photo, the homeowner insists Hobbs was also wearing fairy wings at the time of his arrest. Multiple people told WREG that Hobbs frequently roams the neighborhood alleys and has even attempted to break into other people’s sheds, but they said he usually isn’t wearing a costume. “Normally, I see him, he be straggly looking with jeans...

    Actor Chris Evans is starting up a political website that states its mission is "to create informed, responsible and empathetic citizens." There is no launch date yet for the website, called A Starting Point, which Evans co-founded with fellow actor Mark Kassan and entrepreneur Joe Kiani, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The “Captain America” star has been to Capitol Hill to conduct interviews for the website with Sens. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, Chris Coons, D-Del., Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, as well as lawmakers in the House. Evans campaigned for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and is a vocal detractor...

    Marvel are reportedly looking to cast their first openly gay superhero, and fans have already suggested who could take over the role. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige hinted that the studio was working towards bringing a new LGBTQ character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe last year, and now it's been claimed that casting has opened. According to the That Hashtag Show, Marvel are on the hunt for an actor who will play the lead role in their 2020 feature film The Eternals.

    Captain America has called Donald Trump a "puppet" following a summit between the US leader and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Well, the actor who plays him has anyway. Chris Evans was reacting to Mr Trump's decision to defend Russia over allegations it interfered in the US election that made Donald Trump president - contradicting what his own intelligence agencies say. The Avenger called it a "disgrace". "Politics aside", the Democrat said on Twitter, "This is 100% un-American".

    Ta-Nehisi Coates was interested in taking on Marvel's Captain America in a new comic book series because of the character's idealism. "He's like Barack Obama," Coates told a packed house during a Saturday afternoon keynote at the SXSW festival in Austin. "I want to clarify that. I don't mean that as praise or criticism. He's somebody who believes in the ideal of America, really, really believes in it." The author announced the new comic endeavor on Feb. 28 via a column in The Atlantic, where he is a national correspondent. In the essay, he wrote that "what is exciting here...

    This week, the fan-favorite Daredevil creative team of Mark Waid and Chris Samnee bring Captain America out of Secret Empire and into “Legacy.” And despite the initiative’s focus on the past, Waid and Samnee are all about moving Steve Rogers forward - out of Hydra, and out of New York. Starting with November 1’s Captain America #695, Rogers will leave the big city to get back in touch with the heartland of America. Newsarama spoke to Waid and Samnee on the eve of the issue’s release to find out what it takes to get Steve Rogers back in America’s good...

    From actor Chris Evans (Captain America) to director Joss Whedon, the Marvel Comics franchise is committing harikari in the most unbecoming of ways: through unapologetic, partisan bashing of a democratically elected president they can’t stand. Evans has expressed deep contempt for what he considers to be in the ignorant masses of Americans that voted Donald Trump into the White House. These are, however, the very masses that make up the core viewership of Marvel’s superhero movies. “People were just so desperate to hear someone say that someone is to blame,” Evans said in a recent interview with Esquire magazine. “They...

    Right after Trump was elected on November 9, Evans tweeted, “This is an embarrassing night for America. We’ve let a hatemonger lead our great nation. We’ve let a bully set our course. I’m devastated.” This tweet didn’t sit well with some of his Twitter followers. Granted, it’s an easy thing to say as a privileged white male. Because there are plenty of people oppressed and victimized and in jeopardy at this stage.”

    Actor Chris Evans, known as “Captain America” in the Marvel film universe, is not a fan of President Donald Trump. In an interview with Esquire, Evans, who supported Hillary Clinton, said he still cannot believe that Trump won the election and is commander-in-chief. "I feel rage," Evans said. "I feel fury. It's unbelievable. People were just so desperate to hear someone say that someone is to blame. They were just so happy to hear that someone was angry. Hear someone say that Washington sucks."

    The College Fix ^ | 1/7/2017 | Dave Huber
    The latest issue of Marvel Comics’ Captain America: Sam Wilson features writer Nick Spencer taking jabs at campus social justice warriors (SJWs). Which seems quite, well, odd given Spencer’s far-left politics and hatred for all things conservative/Republican. As confirmation, readers and fans on Twitter and elsewhere couldn’t figure out whether to take the writer’s latest creation, the “Bombshells,” seriously or not. The Bombshells show up at a college to thwart an appearance by what Heat Street’s Ian Miles Cheong calls an amalgam of right-wing provocateurs Lauren Southern and Milo Yiannopoulos (although the woman’s name is Ariella Conner which indicates to...

    The relaunch of Marvel’s red, white and blue avenger puts the ideological views of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s critics into the mouth of Nazi villain “Red Skull.” “I have just come from Europe — my homeland, in fact. And do you know what I saw there? It was an invading army. These so-called ‘refugees’ — millions of them — marching across the continent, bringing their fanatical beliefs and their crime with them,” Captain America’s nemesis says. “They attack our women, and bomb our cities. And how do our leaders respond? Do they push them back and enforce the borders, as...

    When fans ran out to grab Marvel Comics’ “Captain America: Steve Rogers #1” on its release Wednesday, they were not expecting this. Captain America discloses in the issue that he is in fact a secret operative of the evil, formerly Nazi organization, Hydra. The dramatic twist happens right on the last page, as Captain America prepares to throw his supposed ally, Jack Flag, off an airplane, presumably to his death, and exclaims, “Hail Hydra!” Even Chris Evans, who plays Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, most recently in “Captain America: Civil Wars,” was shocked. Writer Nick Spencer assured readers...

    What's going on behind that shield? Understand this about the media’s pursuit of agendas: It’s often not so much how they cover stories, as it is which stories they choose to cover at all. Let a bunch of people on social media start using the hashtag #IndictHillary, and I seriously doubt it gets any attention. A bunch of people on social media wanting something is not a story.

    There has been a major push lately to gay all the things (read Dear Hollywood: Stop Gaying All the Things, Especially Straight Characters…. Surely you’ve noticed. Speaking of penises in your face, the latest move for the Gaystapo is heterosexual appropriation; that is taking a heterosexual character and turning him/her homo. Currently in the gaydar’s sights? Captain America. Yes, THAT Captain America. Well, we figured if the left wants to see Steve Rogers all gayed up, who are we to deny them said wish?

    Earlier today, SJWs on Twitter managed to get their demands for a gay Captain America to trend. Here's an article: [snip...] The thing about these "let's make this super hero gay" campaigns is that 99.99 percent of everyone calling for it doesn't actually read or watch Super Hero stuff anyway. We're talking about the most neurotic people on Earth who are literally offended by everything. These are the people I met at university who would randomly tell me that they wished their own parents would die. These people merely keep pushing and pushing their bizarre agenda to the point that...
