Chris Evans might have said he wants to keep playing Captain America, but we reckon the directors might have other plans for him. The Russo Brothers, who helmed the last two Cap movies, also worked on screwball comedy series Arrested Development back in the noughties, and they’ve somehow managed to cram the two together.
Yup, this secret easter egg from the Star-Spangled Avenger’s latest outing caught us all by surprise. If you look carefully at the still from Captain America: Civil War below, fans of the Netflix-revived show will spot the Bluths’ trusty stair car hiding in the background. Check it out below.
Now maybe it’s a happy coincidence, but we can’t help but wonder if the Russos were slyly trying out Evans for a new role. Perhaps we’ll see him blued-up with oddball actor Tobias Funke in a new series. Or maybe he’ll be manning the Frozen Banana Stand. Hopefully it won’t ‘burn down’ this time…
Arrested Development returned on Netflix in 2013 after a seven year hiatus. The entire original cast all reprised their roles. Even Hollywood big shot Michael Cera reappeared as permanently terrified mini-Bluth George Michael (yes, that is his name). A fifth series is reportedly in the works, and there are even plans for a movie. But right now, we’ll just have to make do with imagining George Sr. making a break for it in the stair car, Captain America in hot pursuit. Now there’s a movie we’d like to see.
