When Ruffalo published America’s a ** on Instagram and Twitter in 2020, the Avengers: Endgame star simply posted a cropped screenshot of the back of Cap. Then he captioned the photo with a peach emoji and wrote, “Happy # 4thOfJuly. ” No more no less. But even so, most viewers of the Marvel Cinematic Universe understood the reference.

Later, Steve confronted his 2012 self and had the chance to settle the matter once and for all. “It is America a **,” he said.
Where does Captain America’s joke come from in Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame”

In an interview with the LA Times published in May 2019, Avengers: Endgame screenwriter Stephen McFeely revealed where the joke on Captain America’s butt came from.
“It’s kind of the meta,” said McFeely at the time. “Chris Evans has never been comfortable with this outfit from the first Avengers movie. So in the rearview mirror, it’s a little way to wink at how it was back then and it’s now. And then he sort of just built from there. ”
He added, “By the time we got to the fighting scene where he was defeated, his buttocks were on the ground and were just sitting there for a reminder. “
Then, in a conversation with SYFY WIRE in October 2019, McFeely explained that Cap was not originally supposed to comment on his own behind and that the scenes were filmed during the covers.
“We redid the Cap on Cap fight, the end of it, and that helped us a lot,” said McFeely. “And then we had to get out of this scene a little differently. And there [2012 Cap] was, slumped on the floor with his buttocks in the air. ”
Meanwhile, End of Game screenwriter Christopher Markus hinted that Evans was satisfied with the end result.
“It’s rare that you can find a joke for Captain America to say that [is] in the character of Captain America, “said Markus. “He doesn’t make a lot of non-sequential smart remarks. So I think Chris is happy when you can get something funny left in the wheelhouse in Cape Town. ”
