Captain America: Then and Now


Emerson Hubbard, Current News Editor

We all know and love Captain America. Believe it or not, we have actually had three live-action Captains! So, here are all of our language-hating heroes!

1. Reb Brown (1966-1977)

He played cap in the mid-70’s and he loved it. He is not the most known Captain, but he is the original one. Brown actually had a good career, and the older generation probably considers him as their favorite Captain America.

2. Chris Evans (2011-2019)

Chris is probably considered as the most known Captain America. He started to be the captain in 2011 but he gave up his shield in Avengers: Endgame. We all know him as Captain but he is done with his time and said it was his best role yet. He is by far in most opinions the GOAT of the Captain.

3. Anthony Mackie (2020-Current)

Anthony Mackie, or Sam Wilson (Falcon) was given the shield at the end of Endgame, and he has continued Chris EvansĀ“s Legacy in The Falcon and Winter Soldier. Even though the government gives the shield to another Captain America, Mackie still does an amazing job as Captain America/Falcon.

So far, Captain America has only had 3 actors in the movies, but these actors have made an impact on most (if not all) Marvel fans.

Who is your favorite Captain America?
