Avengers: Endgame was chock full of memorable, albeit somewhat controversial moments. Between the debut of “Professor Hulk” to the “America’s Ass” incident, from the “A-Force” tease to a funeral for the ages, there were too many moments to count in the 3 hour epic. But, there is one moment that stood out to many, and created its own controversy when it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline and certain “family relations”. I’m talking, of course, about Old Man Cap. But, did you know that it wasn’t even Chris Evans who was sitting on the bench?
Ok, that last sentence may be a little confusing, so let me explain. While Chris Evans did don the old man make up and shoot the scene, they used a body double to give him an older, more shrunken (for lack of a better term) body to add to his old age appearance. And, that body double, Patrick Gorman, had actually posted back in January of his involvement… sort of…
He posted a selfie in the now iconic tan member’s only jacket that Old Man Cap wore on that bench, along with mo cap dots on his face. He didn’t give anything away in his caption, nor even tagged Marvel. And, with only a 1,000 or so followers, it went completely under the radar.
Gorman has had a few supporting roles in films like Gettysburg, Sleepy Hollow, and Teen Wolf, but never had “name recognition”, so while some could call his post a “spoiler”, his vague caption and lack of “notoriety” kept him in the clear and off of Disney’s naughty list.
Not all fans were happy with Cap’s ending in Avengers: Endgame, and many actually expected him to “bite the dust” by the film’s end, but this happy ending is not only deserved, but it also leaves the door open for a cameo or two. Whether it’s in a future film or the Falcon/Winter Soldier series, we know that Chris Evans isn’t done with the MCU just yet.
