Chris Evans teased fans about a possible retirement from acting after he finished filming for Avengers: Endgame.


What else could he possibly be pursuing?

It looks like something he's been trying to keep under wraps revealed itself: the actor is dabbling in politics.

Captain America is not running for president, but we wouldn't put it past him.

CNN reported that Evans sent a video asking members of Congress to participate in a secret, "non-partisan civic engagement project" he is spearheading called, "A Starting Point."


The project would present a forum in which the Democratic and Republican parties could present both sides of their arguments on current political issues in an effort to reduce partisanship.

"I just thought, 'Why isn't there a place I can go to hear both sides of an issue in a succinct way that I can trust?'" said Evans in the leaked video.

The footage shows the actor interacting with senators around the halls inside the Capitol.

"It's a one-stop shop for simple digestable information from people who know best."

Evans asked members of congress to choose from a list of questions to answer "around a minute" in length and provide links to encourage more research from viewers.

Hours after the video leaked, Evans, 37, admitted on Twitter, "Guess the cat's outta the bag," followed by a colon and a close parenthesis in lieu of a smiley face emoji.


"I want to make it clear that this website has nothing to do with my political opinion," said Evans in the video invitation to members.

"It's not about my political opinion. This is about yours. This is a chance for you to talk about issues that matter to you."

People are cautiously hopeful about the new project.


While some have their doubts about its effectiveness.



Some are unwilling to hear both sides of a controversial issue when one side is clearly wrong.



But many are all for the project and expect great things to come as a result.








Hmmm, is this Captain America's endgame?



One was concerned mostly about Evans's emoji skills.


So far, Evans interviewed Democratic Senators Chris Coons of Delaware and Cory Booker of New Jersey; Republican Senators Johnny Isakson of Georgia, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Jim Risch of Idaho and Tim Scott of South Carolina; and Democratic Representatives Ted Lieu and Swalwell, both of California.

There is no date on when the website will launch.

As a "high achieving" student, the biggest mind-blowing fact I have ever learned has been the sheer amount of straight-up lying that happens in formal education.

It's a lot. Like a lot a lot. History class lied so hard.

Board games are designed carefully by teams of experts. Countless brainstorm sessions are carried out, designs and prototypes are proposed and changed, and plenty of focus groups are consulted along the way.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
