Chris Evans took part in a panel discussion this weekend at the Salt Lake City Comic Con where he spoke directly about Captain America: Civil War and the conflict dividing the Avengers. Specifically he mentions the Accords and some of the reasons that everyone is not onboard with the proposed government control over the team.
“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.”
If you look at the situation from both sides it’s easy to see the conflict and frustration that the characters must be going through. Hopefully, this will come through on the screen. Despite the ambiguity of the situation, Evans backs up Cap 100%.
“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.”
It will be interesting to see how this next installment shakes out and goes over with the viewing audiences. This is a story without your typical “villain” where the trouble comes from within and not from an outside antagonist. I for one am extremely excited and optimistic about the storyline and the movie itself. At this point, I can’t really say which team I’d side with. If you had to, which side would you choose?
Captain America: Civil War will be released on May 6th, 2016.
