What? Captain America Predicted Coronavirus In 2011? Viral Pics From Captain America: The First Avenger Is Making People Go Crazy With The Theory
A screengrab from 2011 released Captain America: The First Avenger is going viral on social media. As per the netizens, the snapshot has the reference of the ongoing pandemic Coronavirus and the protest against George Floyd’s death. The grab was first shared by an Instagram user under Lex Future name. This scene of the Captain American: The First Avenger, sees Chris Evans AKA Steve Rogers waking up and running into Times Square in New York. In the background, netizens noticed a few billboards. One above Steve’s right shoulder is of Corona beer advertisement, while the one over his left should see the illustration of a virus that looks very much like Coronavirus.

Not only that, but one eagle-eyed fan also noticed a billboard that reads “By George, we did it!” Sharing the grab a user wrote, “A friend who’s fully into the COVID conspiracies sent me this post that says Captain America predicted the coronavirus outbreak in 2011, and while its obviously bs, I started fixating on that circled image on the right.” Another wrote, “OMG ITS NOT FAKE. Captain America. On right, coronavirus, on left a corona beer and a sign that says BY GEORGE WE DID IT. Captain America The First Avenger from 2011!”

A Twitterati went on to declare that, “Well it’s official: Captain America: The First Avenger predicted the coronavirus.”


The same Twitter user who Tweeted the grab then went on to investigate what that actually is. In his series of Tweets, he further wrote, “At first I thought it reminded me of a YA novel cover design from that era. I went through all the main ones until I remembered the Divergent cover had the same colour scheme, but not quite the same design. Close, but no cigar. I enlisted my friend Wes for help, who found a clearer screenshot and zoomed in and it felt even more familiar but we couldn’t quite place it.”


“I looked up every movie and broadway show released from April through the summer. Nothing. I started watching random YouTube videos and looking for images from April 2011 in Times Square. No clear view of the poster. Wes started scouring Bing and google street view. We recognized the logo and the color scheme. We cracked the case. It’s spaghetti,” read his tweets.
