Happy Birthday, America! The United States isn’t the only one celebrating an important birth today. July 4th is also the day to honor everyone’s favorite patriotic hero, Captain America. People have taken to Twitter to pay tribute to the Marvel character, but many are focusing on just one of his many assets: his actual ass.
In Avengers: Endgame, one of the best jokes revolves around the hero's butt. Tony Stark/Iron Man makes fun of Cap's 2012 self, saying his costume did nothing for his ass. However, Scott Lang/Ant-Man comes to his defense, calling it "America's ass." Later, Steve fights his past self and prevails, only to get a good, hard look at his own butt, which makes him wholeheartedly agree: "That IS America's ass."
Cap was introduced on the big screen in 2011 when Captain America: The First Avenger hit theaters. Rogers was played by Chris Evans, who continued to portray the character for the next eight years. He has since been seen in The Avengers (2012), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), a cameo in Ant-Man (2015), Captain America: Civil War (2016), a cameo in Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), a cameo in Captain Marvel (2019), and Avengers: Endgame (2019). Chris Evans also made an appearance in Thor: The Dark World (2013), but he wasn’t technically Cap, just Loki pretending to be him.
Here are some of the fun tweets honoring Captain America's ass today:
