As has often been the case in these Marvel movies, there are no bears in Captain America: The First Avenger. But does that mean that the movie gets no bears? Let’s not jump to any conclusions here. For while I do not normally award bears to movies that contain bare-chested men, I have made exceptions in the past for extraordinary circumstances, such as the pecs of a Norse god. I’m making another one today, because Captain America: The First Avenger contains Chris Evans’ bare chest, and upon seeing said chest muscles for the first time, Evans’ co-star Hayley Atwell was so enamored with them they she spontaneously reached out and touched them, which made it into the final cut of the movie. Is that enough to earn this movie a bear? You bet! Am I making this up as I go along? My lawyer says I don’t have to answer that.
