“Captain America” star Chris Evans is taking on a new role: political website co-founder.

The “Avengers: Endgame” actor is launching A Starting Point with the mission of creating “informed, responsible and empathetic citizens,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The new venture is reportedly part of the reason Evans was eyed on Capitol Hill in February and earlier this month, shaking hands and posing for snapshots with lawmakers, including Sens.

“You don’t want to alienate half your audience,” Evans tells The Hollywood Reporter in a story published Wednesday. "But I'd be disappointed in myself if I didn't speak up. Especially for fear of some monetary repercussion or career damage — that just feels really gross to me."

In the wide-ranging interview, the Boston native and nephew of former Rep. Mike Capuano (D-Mass.) also weighed in on Tom Brady’s past support of Trump.

The New England Patriots quarterback has had more than a decade-long friendship with Trump, but skipped the NFL team’s White House visit in 2017 following the team’s Super Bowl win.

“I really hope he's not a Trump supporter. I'm just hoping he's one of those guys that maybe supported him and now regrets it,” Evans said of Brady.

“Maybe he thought it was going to be different — and even that bothers me — but maybe there's a chance now he just thinks Trump's an absolute dumb shit, which he is,” Evans continued. “If he doesn't, if he's still on that Trump train, I might have to cut ties. It's really tough."
