Chris Evans Clarifies the Pronunciation of His "C-Evans" Nickname

Marvel Cinematic Universe star, Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), recently visited ACE Comic Con in Seattle and met some fans and did a panel with fellow Marvel actors, Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye/Ronin) and Don Cheadle (James Rhodes/War Machine). During one fan interaction, the actor cleared up something that has caused confusion amongst the Internet: the pronunciation of his nickname. A lot of people refer to the actor as C-Evans, and there has been an ongoing debate of whether it's pronounced like “sevens” or “c-evans.” Turns out, neither is correct. The nickname is actually pronounced C-Vans.

“I have a couple buddies that would say literally the letter c then v, a, n, s,” Evans explained in the video.

There you have it! Many people commented on the post with some great reactions to the shocking news:
