The video begins with Captain America representing the protestors, standing all by himself in the battlefield. Then one by one donaters, Twitter awareness and petition makers join him as Tchalla, Shuri and Okoye. Meanwhile, Thanos plays the ‘police’ and one of his minions is ‘bunker baby’, aka, US President Donald Trump.
Elmo and Batman join the protests as Falcon and Star Lord and Drax represents ‘celebrities using their platforms and protesting’. Spider-Man is the safety advisors who are helping protestors stay safe against rubber bullets and tear gas. The wizards are ‘white people using their privilege to shield protestors’ and even the TikTokers get representation as Valkyrie and the Asgardians. Finally, Ant-Man emerges from under the debris as Anonymous stepping out of his hibernation to rain chaos on Twitter. Ultimately the whole army is called ‘world coming together to take down the police and racists’.
I have now :) it’s fantastic!!! Thank you for sharing it with me ❤️❤️❤️— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) June 6, 2020
Someone tagged Chris in the video and asked if he had seen the video yet. “Dear Twitter BF @ChrisEvans, folks wanna make sure you, in particular, have seen this!,” read the tweet. Chris replied, “I have now :) it’s fantastic!!! Thank you for sharing it with me.”
While fans were ecstatic to watch Chris and the others as their favourite superheroes, the actor has recently said that his time as Captain America is over.

Recently, Evans confirmed that he probably won’t be playing Captain America again. “It’s not a hard no, but it’s not an eager yes either,” he explained in an interview. “There are other things that I’m working on right now. I think Cap had such a tricky act to stick the landing, and I think they did a really nice job letting him complete his journey. If you’re going to revisit it, it can’t be a cash grab. It can’t be just because the audience wants to be excited. What are we revealing? What are we adding to the story? A lot of things would have to come together. It doesn’t feel, at this time, that would be a thing.”
