Chris Evans talks ‘Civil War’, differing with Iron Man, makes political comparison

The Avengers have always had their differences, captured during the first two films, but Captain America: Civil War will highlight the separation and see the punches fly.

Speaking with Cineplex, star Chris Evans spoke about the divide in the MCU and the substantial changes coming not only for Steve Rogers as well as Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark.

“There’s a great parallel that they draw between my character and Tony Stark,” Evans says.

You can go right down to Democrat and Republican; everyone has a different opinion of what’s best…You have this team of people who are destroying every city they go to, but they’re saving the world. So it’s a matter of, do we monitor these people or do we let them monitor themselves? The beautiful thing with Civil War is that no one’s right and no one’s wrong; it’s just your personal opinion.”
Evans’ Captain America has always been a beacon of good and the Snowpiercer star gives fans a brief remark on the change.

Captain America Civil War Chris Evans“We’re going to have a nice evolution where you have a guy like Cap, who grew up with structure — he was a soldier and he liked hierarchy, he liked the chain of command. Now, all of a sudden, you have a guy who used to love the system not so sure about trusting it. And a guy like Tony Stark, who used to buck the system and dance to the beat of his own drum all of a sudden thinking, maybe we need some order.”

Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War begins with Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers (introduced at the end of the Age of Ultron) in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
