Though he's best known for playing Captain America, Chris Evans has also become known for his Twitter account. Following the 2016 election, Evans has been critical of the Trump administration and often insults both the president and his son Donald Trump, Jr. Some are surprised he's been able to be so candid, but as it turns out, Marvel is perfectly fine with what he's doing.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Evans pointed out that no one at Marvel has said anything about his many anti-Trump tweets. Though he's worried himself about becoming too performative, his current employer hasn't told him at all to dial anything back. Evans even said he's gotten praise from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige: "When I bump into Kevin Feige the first thing out of his mouth is 'Man, I love what you're doing [on Twitter].'"
Feige said he doesn't see it as trash talking, quick as it is to label Evans' tweets as such. If anything, he considers it the sort of thing the man who plays Captain America should be doing. "It's very noble, very Cap-like," he said. "Commentary and questioning. I've said to him, 'You're merging! You and the character are merging!'"
In relation to Evans' tweets about Trump, the actor has said that, as a fan of the New England Patriots, he hopes player Tom Brady isn't a Trump supporter. He's just hoping that Brady is someone who's now regretting his voting choice, but even that hope is fading. "If he's still on that Trump train, I might have to cut ties," he said. "It's really tough."
In the past, he admits that he would've tried to rationalize Brady's choice somehow, but he's unsure if that's possible anymore. "So I'm just hoping he's woken up."
