Chris Evans Is Working On A Political Website With Help From Congress, And It Actually Sounds Pretty Cool

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.

Love or money?

An age old question.

Ideally, you wouldn't have to decide between the two.

In a perfect world, you would be able to find the true love of your life and be incredibly wealthy all at once.

But, as the saying goes, you can't have everything.

Though if faced with having to choose between the two, people might have a different idea of what the obvious answer would be.

Redditor lulinghayaw was curious how people would decide when faced with this decision, leading them to ask:

"Genuine, true love or 5 million dollars? Why?"

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"
