Captain America: Steve Rogers, a new comic series written by Nick Spencer, released its first issue this week, containing a detail that has both Chris and fans of the franchise reeling. The comic exposed the Marvel character’s true allegiance, revealing he’s actually an undercover agent for the former Nazi organization Hydra.
Although this plot twist doesn’t change Chris’ role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe right now, it’s unclear how the revelation may steer the direction of the story in coming installments.
Check out the 34-year-old’s reaction to the news below, as well as how some other fans processed the development, through Tweets.
