Chris Evans has been trending on Twitter, but it is not who the fans think it is. Whenever most people hear the name of Evans, the first thing that comes to their mind is Captain America or Steve Rogers. The actor has played that role for the Marvel franchise since 2010. He played the role of hero for the first time in Captain America: The First Avenger. Since then, Evans has become synonymous with the film series.
However, the person who is trending on Twitter is not the actor but someone else who has confused his fans. It has come as a surprise to a lot of people that there is an American footballer with the same name.
Chris Evans is also the name of the American football player who is a running back for the Cincinnati Bengals. The confusion started after the Bengals played the Miami Dolphins, which caused many NFL fans to tweet about Evans, the football player. This puzzled the Marvel fans who know Chris as the Cap.
