In a world where it's news that Black Widow—who still doesn't have her own movie franchise, mind you—makes as much as Captain American and Thor, it is nice and helpful when Captain America himself steps up like "Yeah, there is still definitely a gender wage gap in Hollywood."

During an episode of Chelsea Handler's Netflix chat show, Evans joined costar Emily VanCamp in arguing that it's important to publicly acknowledge the gender inequality "ubiquitous" in Hollywood.

"It's not even about the contracts [or pay]," the competent "Single Ladies" dancer said. "If you look at that project there's probably about nine roles guy roles and one girl role. So even before you get to the point of money, there's already an issue going on underneath."

Hear, hear. Now someone go tweet that at Jeremy Renner every half hour until he gets it too.
