Chris Evans Talks ‘Cap’, Explains Post on Bomber Cover
Chris Evans doesn’t post on Twitter often, but when the actor saw the recent Rolling Stone cover featuring Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, he sent out a short missive: “Bad move Rolling Stone.”
Evans appeared Saturday at Comic-Con to promote his new film “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”
Asked about the tweet, he said he felt the magazine intentionally glamorized Tsarnaev. The 19-year-old is accused of setting off two bombs with his brother during the marathon in April. Three people died and more than 250 were injured in the attack.
Evans says Rolling Stone glorified Tsarnaev by making him look like Jim Morrison and a rock star.
Interestingly, the issues the Rolling Stone article raises about Tsarnaev’s complex background are similar to the issues Captain America deals with in the sequel.
