    Chris Evans Really Out Captain America-Ed Himself, So Robert Downey Jr. And Mark Ruffalo Stepped In


    So we all know that Steve Rogers, aka Captain America is, essentially, a 70-year-old man trapped in the body of a 30-year-old man.

    And we all ALSO know that actor Chris Evans, who's portrayed Cap for the past 10 years, is pretty much just Captain America himself.

    Well this week Evans really OUTDID himself when he posted this delightfully grandpa-level tweet, fully transforming into his final form, Ol' Man Steve Rogers:

    Dear All Technology, Remember the 90’s when you just WORKED??? I don’t need a ‘smart’ feature on my TV, thermostat, lights, music, refrigerator, security cameras, and f-ing car. You’re a major pain in all of our asses. You’re not worth it. Signed, Everyone

    Like, he wrote this tweet like an old-timey letter...which is HILARIOUS, and he even signed it for literally all of us.

    But the good news is, before things could get TOO serious, Robert Downey Jr. (aka Tony Stark, aka Iron Man) stepped in to offer the services of the "science bros":

    @ChrisEvans hey @MarkRuffalo looks like Cap needs a little tutoring from the science bros.

    The "science bros" is what long-time fans of the Marvel universe have christened the friendship between Downey Jr.'s Stark and Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner.

    Oh, and don't worry, Ruffalo ALSO stepped in to offer up his assistance, and even added a PERFECT reference to Avengers: Age of Ultron at the end:

    @RobertDowneyJr @ChrisEvans Call or DM us whenever you need assistance, @ChrisEvans. Also language.


    Finally, Evans came back to the offer of help by pointing out that Stark's arc reactor (the fictional source powering Iron Man's armor) likely doesn't need a new OS. Seriously y'all, this whole thing is nerdy and precious:

    I’m guessing the arc reactor doesn’t need some sort of annoying upgrade or download or new OS every 3 months. HELP ME!

    Naturally, fans went WILD for the adorable interaction:

    @ChrisEvans Well you clearly just spoiled the end of #AvengersEndgame where you return to the 1940s to live out your days and become ‘Old Man Rogers’ 😂🤣... 🤔

    And knowing that our faves are BFFs both on-screen and off genuinely warms the soul:

    @ChrisEvans You, RDJ, and Mark are adorable. I love your friendship.


    It even brought to mind for many what it would've been like to have these two super-geniuses explain how to use technology to the super-soldier in one of the films:

    @ChrisEvans Just imagine the science bros trying to explain all this to Cap

    Marvel Studios

    So yeah, there you have it. While his time in the Marvel universe may be coming to a close, Evans is still slowly but surely making his final transformation into our IRL Captain America.
