With Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) coming out with blockbuster movies almost every year, there is hardly any comic book and MCU fan across the globe who doesn't love Captain America a.k.a. Steve Rogers.
MCU has made sure Cap gets as much popularity and fandom from being on-screen as he has off-from the comic books. The directors and writers have done their best to keep the superhero true to the books.
Chris Evans is straight out of the illustrations and sketches of the First Avenger drawn by artists for years. Undoubtedly, he is the best pick to play the character. Whether it be the personality or the looks of Cap, Evans has got it all.
As the next MCU movie, "Captain America: Civil War," is all set to hit the theatres worldwide on May 6, here are some of the weirder and lesser-known facts about the Captain. Will the fans get to see any of them in the upcoming movie?
Captain can lift Thor's hammer
MCU fans might find this hard to believe, as it was shown in the movies only Vision was able to lift Thor's hammer, Mjolnir, although, Cap seemed to have budged it a whisker in "Avengers: Age of Ultron."
In a particular story arc in the comic books, though, Thor was separated from Mjolnir during a battle with Seth's followers, and when Cap was overpowered by the bad guys, he lifted the hammer and blasted them off.
Steve Rogers has dated more than one Carter
Casual MCU fans know Rogers had dated Peggy Carter back when he was not frozen and before going into a 70-year-long slumber. However, not many know Rogers has also dated Agent 13 a.k.a. Sharon Carter, who is niece of Peggy, in the comic books. Agent 13 was portrayed by Emily VanCamp in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier."
Captain fought Wolverine as a werewolf
While fighting Nightshade, Cap got injected with a mysterious serum that transformed him into a werewolf. However, he managed to escape but only to be confronted by none other than Wolverine.
Unfortunately, Wolverine was in one of his bad moods, and his rage knew no boundaries. The two had a fierce battle where the Cap-wolf slashed Wolverine's eyes and threw him far away.
The possibility of Cap lifting Mjolnir or getting into a romantic relationship with Agent 13 doesn't sound bad at all, and might add more amazing moments in "Civil War." However, the chances of he fighting Wolverine are low as the cinematic rights of the character lie with Fox while Cap is a property of Marvel Studios.
Recently, in a surprising turn of events, Marvel brought back another of its iconic characters, Spider-Man, into its cinematic universe from Sony. Hence, a time might come when Cap and Wolverine will confront each other on the big screen as well. With Marvel, it is never enough of surprises.
