Chris Evans discusses the conflict between Captain America and Iron Man

09.28.2015

With CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR shaping up to be one of Marvel's biggest films yet, fan-anticipation is starting to kick off in a huge way and Chris Evans fanned that anticipation over the weekend by dropping some interesting details about the film at the Salt Lake City Comic-Con. Via the Salt Lake Tribune, Evans revealed that the Accords are what divides the Avengers after they're asked to sign an agreement governing their actions.

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. 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.

There's a careful line to tread when you pit Captain America and Iron Man against each other; fans don't want to see either character as the "bad guy", but we also don't want to the conflict to feel so insignificant that the film just wraps up with a series of hugs. Based on Evans' comments however, CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR seems to be on the right track. Also appearing at the Comic-Con were Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie, who commented on the possibilities that one of them may take on the mantle of Captain America in the future; Mackie seemed reluctant to imagine a world where Chris Evans doesn't play Captain America:

I don't think we need a new Cap. I don't think Cap needs to change, I think [Bucky's actor Sebastian Stan] would be a great Cap, but then we're left without Bucky. I think I'd be a great Cap, but then we're left without a Falcon.

Sebastian Stan was quick to nominate himself as Captain America's replacement, but he also isn't holding his breath that it will happen anytime soon:

"I'll say this: They sure like to dangle a cheese in front of my nose a lot, they're like 'Oh yeah, that's where you pick up the shield,' and I'm like, 'Yeah, I've heard that one before. There it is again.'"

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR opens on May 6, 2016.

When the time comes, who would you like to see take on the mantle of Captain America?
