Here’s a good look at the glass eye.
Crewnshaw wouldn’t be the only politician Evans would visit. He met with South Carolina Senator Tim Scott where he allegedly revealed some Avengers: Endgame secrets. He warned the Senator, “If you repeat the secrets I told you about Endgame, Marvel will make sure we BOTH turn to dust.”
Honor to meet you, sir. Thank you for taking the time. And if you repeat the secrets I told you about Endgame, Marvel will make sure we BOTH turn to dust. https://t.co/VfAsKpwOaK

Evans would also meet with Senator Johnny Isakson. The two discussed the importance of trade relationships as well as what’s happening on the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee.
Enjoyed talking with @chrisevans as @VAChair about how we’re leading the way in bipartisanship in the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee to ensure our veterans receive the best care. #CaptainAmerica and I also discussed why trade relationships with our neighbors is vital. pic.twitter.com/GxU6iHHXpN

The Captain America actor would also meet with Congressman and United States Air Force veteran Ted Liu. Liu indicates he gave Evans his military unit coin.

These congressman and Senators aren’t alone in expressing their comic book fandom. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently quoted Alan Moore’s Watchmen and won quite a bit of praise from a number of comic book fans.
What do you make of Evans’ visits to these Congressman? How cool is Dan Crewnshaw’s glass eye? What Endgame spoilers do you think he spilled to Tim Scott?
