Captain America (played by Chris Evans) has certainly taken on a lot throughout his time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. From fighting literal Nazis to taking down S.H.I.E.L.D, the warrior is fearless. If that wasn’t enough, he even grabbed the hammer of an actual god and went toe-to-toe with the titan Thanos (Josh Brolin) in Avengers Endgame, cementing his position as one of the toughest characters in modern film.
However, it seems as if the patriotic brawler is not guaranteed a spot in all groups of do-gooders.
Despite the fact Cap took charge of the Avengers early on in his franchise, he is not the captain picked out by the vast majority of viewers.
As lockdown restrictions continue to tighten and the pandemic ravages the world over the course of 2020, film fans are continuing to look into post-apocalyptic films for their fix of escapism.
NOW TV has released some data revealing British viewers are watching more post-apocalyptic content than ever.
And while each of the films in question have a great angle on the post-apocalyptic world which is doubtless on its way to us in real life, fans do have their preferences.
Most notably, NOW TV has revealed that most Brits want Sarah Connor from Terminator: Dark Fate by their side.
It’s no wonder why the heroine received 13% of the entire vote, as she regularly gets herself out of horrific situations, and continues to not only save herself, her friends, and her family – but also the entire future.
Unfortunately for Cap, he came out with just 12 per cent of the vote, leaving him behind for the proverbial zombies in the mix.
Also in the mix was characters from rise of the Planet of the Apes, and – yes – Armageddon.
Marina Start, MD of streaming services in NOW TV commented: “Our TV habits are often influenced by what’s going on in the world around us and our mood at that moment.
“During the pandemic, we’ve seen a huge surge in our viewing numbers with customers tuning into post-apocalyptic movies like After Earth and Minority Report to find comfort in these fictional worlds.”
Interestingly enough, 64 per cent of viewers felt as though they were already living in a post-apocalyptic world with the ongoing pandemic happening.

Recently fans have been theorising over why Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) had a bad reaction to the super soldier serum unlike Steve Rogers.
Reddit user rafael-a theorised: “Bacteria is the answer.
“In the scene of the transformation of skinny Steve Rogers into big buff Captain America there is a small joke where Erskine injects him [with] penicillin beforehand.
“The penicillin shot was much more important than it seems, because [the] human body is full of bacteria.
“And the Super Serum would enhance microbes as well. Therefore they should be killed beforehand.”
Although this was never truly explored in the films, it would explain quite a lot about Captain America and Red Skull’s integral differences.
The Captain America Trilogy is available to watch on Disney Plus now.
Terminator: Dark Fate is available to stream on the Sky Cinema pass on NOW TV.
