Chris Evans was recently announced to join Daniel Craig in Rian Johnson's next murder mystery, "Knives Out," and it seems that the two stars will have no problem getting along. Evans has gone viral on social media after coming to Craig's defense for a photo of the James Bond actor carrying his newborn daughter and was beaten by journalist and television presenter Piers Morgan.
Morgan tweeted the photo of Craig carrying his daughter on October 14 with the caption, "Oh 007 … are not you too?! #Papoose #emasculatedBond". Morgan's publication was quickly criticized on social media for being misogynistic and implying that using a baby carrier is something that women do and not "male" figures like James Bond. A little more than a day passed before Evans answered, but when he did, he spoke for everyone on the Internet.

"You really have to be so unsure of your own masculinity to worry about how another man carries his son," Evans wrote of Morgan. "Any man who wastes time quantifying masculinity is terrified inside."
Evans' response was celebrated by his followers and has won over 62,000 retweets and more than 350,000 "likes". The actor recently completed the production of the fourth film "Avengers", which will premiere on May 3, 2019. Evans and Craig will begin work on "Knives Out" in November. The film, which marks the return of Rian Johnson to indie after "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", is being described as a mystery in the style of Agatha Christie.
Morgan still has to respond to Evans' comment. Check out the viral tweet from Captain America actor below.
