We’ve seen a lot of awesome stuff at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, but one of the highlights was a new poster for Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, featuring all the characters put together in a great collage surrounding the mighty Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet.
One of those images was Chris Evans as a bearded – and worn – Captain America, and ever since that image went up, people have been having a lot of fun with it, redrawing him as Nick Fury (with the eyepatch) and even as a Hydra-infused Captain America.
But perhaps our personal favorite – and one we can’t really unsee – is an artistic recreation of Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid, using the Chris Evans Captain America imagery as motivation. And the end result is surprising cool.
A Twitter user by the name of BossLogic tweeted out the image earlier today, noting, “This is all I see now @ChrisEvans #SolidSnake #SDCC”, followed by his recreation of a movie poster featuring Evans in the role of Snake. And, no, we can’t unsee it either. And, for that matter, neither can a lot of people on Reddit, who have been talking about the uncanny resemblance Evans has to Solid Snake.
BossLogic has recreated a lot of celebrities in various superhero roles in drawings in the past (check out the gallery above for some of his other artwork), but we have a deep admiration for this one, mainly because Evans looks pretty damn good in the role of Snake. In fact, we’re almost tempted to call up director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who previously worked on Kong: Skull Island and is about to begin work on the film adaptation of Metal Gear Solid, and go, “Hey, um, so if you haven’t cast Solid Snake yet…”
Check out the poster above and ask yourself, “Wouldn't Chris Evans make an absolutely great Solid Snake?” After all, he did so well in Snowpiercer and over the years as Captain America, so there’s no doubt he would embody the role pretty well…cigarettes and all.
There’s no date on the Metal Gear Solid movie yet (it’s still deep in pre-production), but, hey, at least we’re getting Infinity War on May 5th, 2018, so we can look forward to that. We included the original poster image below for reference.
Oh, and for those that think Evans can't handle a dark, gravely voice, here's a classic clip from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World to prove you wrong...
