Marvel is slowly changing into a liberal propaganda machine.
Avengers director Joss Whedon, along with Scarlet Johansson and Mark Ruffalo, have all been extremely vocal in their anti-Trump sentiments.
Robert Downey Jr. remains one actor who has not voiced his political views, although some say that he is a Republican.
Which is probably why Downey Jr. is the most beloved part of the Marvel universe.
Meanwhile, another anti-Trump actor who plays a popular superhero is quickly alienating his fan base after his hate-fueled twitter rant. And it should really start to worry Marvel.
“From actor Chris Evans (Captain America) to director Joss Whedon, the Marvel Comics franchise is committing harikari in the most unbecoming of ways: through unapologetic, partisan bashing of a democratically elected president they can’t stand.
Evans has expressed deep contempt for what he considers to be in the ignorant masses of Americans that voted Donald Trump into the White House.
These are, however, the very masses that make up the core viewership of Marvel’s superhero movies.
‘People were just so desperate to hear someone say that someone is to blame,’ Evans said in a recent interview with Esquire magazine.
‘They were just so happy to hear that someone was angry, hear someone say that Washington sucks.’
‘I feel rage,’ he said. ‘I feel fury. It’s unbelievable.’
‘They just want something new without actually understanding,’ he continued.
‘I mean, guys like Steve Bannon — Steve Bannon! — this man has no place in politics.’
Evans’ trolling of Trump on Twitter seems more an obsession than a pastime, and the actor seems to blame the President for all of the country’s woes.”
Chris Evans further voiced his frustrations on twitter with these tweets.
They did not die because of you. They died because of a hateful, ignorant, pathetic, EMBOLDENED piece of trash. https://t.co/Slieadp763

Unacceptable. This man disgusts me. If you dont think Trump has played a role in this unapologetic wave of ignorance and hate, you are WRONG https://t.co/C8zfocpv3W

This administration LOVES to distract. This will only make it harder for women to stay healthy. Government $ can’t be spent on abortions! https://t.co/2fNrILW90P

Why do celebrities feel the irresistible urge to parade their political bias instead of showing a little bit of restraint and discretion?
One would think actors and filmmakers would have the understanding that they live in the public eye and depend on blue collar Americans to make their living.
But instead, they remain totally oblivious.
