MCU star Chris Evans just spent some quality time on Capitol Hill this past week. While he brushed elbows with the most elite of Washington, one Congressman in particular pulled him aside and showed him something truly remarkable. Dan Crenshaw went on to remove his eye patch briefly to show Chris Evans his glass eye, which was a custom made one with the Captain America insignia.

Crenshaw is a US Navy veteran who lost his eye after getting injured by an explosive device while touring in 2012. He retired as the Lieutenant Commander in 2016, earning two Bronze Star Medals, Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal with valour and the Purple Heart for services in the Navy Seals and to the United States.

Senator Tim Scott earlier posted a picture alongside Chris Evans saying that both of them discussed a great deal about various political issues. Chris Evans even retweeted him, joking that the Senator shouldn’t reveal any Avengers: Endgame spoilers that he accidentally spilt out.
Here’s the tweet:
“Honor to meet you, sir,” Evans wrote. “Thank you for taking the time. And if you repeat the secrets I told you about Endgame, Marvel will make sure we BOTH turn to dust.”
Chris Evans will return to reprise his role as Captain America next month in Avengers: Endgame.
Here’s the synopsis of the film:
“After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the universe is in ruins due to the efforts of the Mad Titan, Thanos. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers must assemble once more in order to undo Thanos’ actions. And restore order to the universe once and for all, no matter what consequences may be in store.”
Captain Marvel is running in theaters worldwide now while Avengers: Endgame releases on April 26th followed by Spider-Man: Far From Home opens on July 5th.
