Even Captain America can’t save us now.
Chris Evans and the rest of the Hollywood reacted in horror as Americans elected Republican nominee Donald Trump as president on Tuesday night after a nightmarish campaign defined by bullying tactics and offensive rhetoric.
As perhaps the most well-known fictional figure representing American values, Captain America stands in pop culture as beacon for hope. So it’s no surprise that many looked to Evans, the man who plays him on screen, after it became clear that a Trump presidency was no longer just a threat, but our new reality.
Evans was, of course, a Hillary Clinton supporter, sharing his “I Voted” sticker on social media earlier in the day with hashtags #ImWithHer and #StrongerTogether.
Avengers, it’s time to assemble.
