Chris Evans Explains Captain America and Iron Man's Conflict in CIVIL WAR
This weekend Chris Evans had a short panel at Salt Lake City Comic Con. While he was there he was asked about Captain America: Civil War and offered up some information regarding the conflict between Captain America and Iron Man. The actor talked about the Accords, which we previously reported on. This is what divides the Avengers because Cap and some of the other team members are not on board with the government controlling the team's actions and holding them accountable for them. Evans explains:
"Tony actually thinks we should be signing these accords and reporting to somebody and Cap, who's always been a company man and has always been a soldier, actually doesn't trust anymore. Given what happened in Cap 2, I think he kind of feels the safest hands are his own, and these are understandable concerns, but this is tough, because even reading the script, you think, I think I agree with Tony in a way, and I do agree that to make this work, you do need to surrender to the group. It can't just be one person saying this is right and this is what we're going to do."
It’s interesting to hear that Evans actually agrees with Tony. He goes on to say that Steve Rogers has his reasons for going against Stark, and also talks about how neither one of them is right or wrong in the path they’ve chosen.
"But Cap has his reasons, he certainly has his reasons, and he is a good man and his moral compass is probably the cleanest. This is a tough thing. This is what made it so interesting while we were filming, and it's hopefully what will make the movie great is nobody's right, nobody's wrong. There's no clear bad guy here. We both have a point of view, which is akin to most disagreements in life and politics."
The next chapter in the Marvel saga is no doubt going to be incredibly intriguing. I’ve always loved the dynamic relationship between these characters, and it’s all been building to this moment where they will be completely at odds. I can’t wait to see how this conflict plays out and eventually ends. What side will they both fall on in the MCU? Captain America: Civil War will be released on May 6th, 2016.
