Light spoilers ahead for Avengers: Endgame. That moment, of course, is all about which Avenger has the best butt. Is it Paul Rudd as Ant-Man?
Throughout his near-decade of service in the Marvel Cinematic Universe , with seven starring roles and a few cameos over eight years' time, Chris Evans' Captain America was always far more likely to deliver a rousing inspirational speech than a wisecrack. Beloved by his fictional peers and real-world audiences alike for his sincerity and loyalty, being a square-jawed square with an unwavering moral compass also made him the butt of jokes — which is why the recurring bit about his owning "America's ass" in this spring's Avengers: Endgame became such a breakout, memed moment. Like many jokes, this one is told in three parts, though that wasn't always the intention. At first, it was just a one-off quip from Tony Stark, one of the endless cracks he makes even in the most extreme circumstances. It was only much later, during film reshoots, that it was decided that Cap himself would get in on the gag.
