Fact check: No, 2011 ‘Captain America’ film did not predict the coronavirus pandemic

Since the advent of the novel coronavirus at the end of 2019, rumors have circulated as to the virus’s origins, method of spread and its potential vaccine. Among the latest, a Facebook post claims the pandemic was predicted in the 2011 film “Captain America: The First Avenger.” The post features a still shot of Steve Rogers, played by actor Chris Evans, in the middle of New York City’s Times Square, where he ends up after fleeing S.H.I.E.L.headquarters, having just been revived from his nearly 70-year slumber in ice.
