Marvel movie contributors sully the franchises just as much as the comics writers

Breitbart's reported that Chris Evans, the actor playing Captain America in the Marvel movies, is one of the biggest leftists and anti-Trump activists around:
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 were just so happy to hear that someone was angry, hear someone say that Washington sucks.”
What, does he think even the Democrats suck? Because if he thinks the whole District of Columbia sucks, then surely he must be talking about Democrats too. Which is surely bound to draw some frowns even from the liberal audience for Evans' films.

Somebody may be to blame here, but it's leftist actors like Evans, and directors like Whedon.
In large part, the bizarre rants the Marvel folks carry out on Twitter and elsewhere are abortion driven. Spitting in the face of their conservative fan base that is overwhelmingly pro-life, Whedon and Evans, along with other Marvel stars such as Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) and Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), fawn over Planned Parenthood while painting abortion foes as backward and unenlightened.
But the actors never consider themselves the same, do they? Sooner or later, their vicious leftist rants are bound to cost the movies an audience. Maybe that time should be now?

If supporting Trump becomes your criteria for right-wing status, you are shutting out a lot of right-trending people. He is a very divisive figure who is disliked by many on the right; at the same time, he was supported by a lot of older left-wingers who remember the Cold War and thought that, bad as he might be, he was not as bad as Hillary and less likely to start World War III with Russia. Trump was probably the most left-wing of the Republican leadership candidates, in favour of some form of medicare as long as it was not called Obamacare, in favour of more regulation of the financial sector, and of deficit financing. He has changed a bit since then.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
