We’ve seen a lot of awesome stuff at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, but one of the highlights was a new poster for Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, featuring all the characters put together in a great collage surrounding the mighty Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet.
One of those images was Chris Evans as a bearded – and worn – Captain America, and ever since that image went up, people have been having a lot of fun with it, redrawing him as Nick Fury (with the eyepatch) and even as a Hydra-infused Captain America.
But perhaps our personal favorite – and one we can’t really unsee – is an artistic recreation of Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid, using the Chris Evans Captain America imagery as motivation. And the end result is surprising cool.
A Twitter user by the name of BossLogic tweeted out the image earlier today, noting, “This is all I see now @ChrisEvans #SolidSnake #SDCC”, followed by his recreation of a movie poster featuring Evans in the role of Snake. And, no, we can’t unsee it either. And, for that matter, neither can a lot of people on Reddit, who have been talking about the uncanny resemblance Evans has to Solid Snake.
BossLogic has recreated a lot of celebrities in various superhero roles in drawings in the past (check out the gallery above for some of his other artwork), but we have a deep admiration for this one, mainly because Evans looks pretty damn good in the role of Snake. In fact, we’re almost tempted to call up director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who previously worked on Kong: Skull Island and is about to begin work on the film adaptation of Metal Gear Solid, and go, “Hey, um, so if you haven’t cast Solid Snake yet…”
