‘Captain America: Civil War’: Russos discuss Cap’s relationship with Bucky, Black Widow

Captain America: Civil War will pick up with Steve searching for Bucky, who went missing after the events of Winter Soldier. Now directors Joe and Anthony Russo continue their journey, helming three big Marvel projects.

While promoting a new film studio in Beijing, China this past week, they answered questions about the two characters and what’s ahead, as detailed by Weeping Angel.

“For us, we’ve always interpreted the relationship as two brothers. They’re very close characters, they have a relationship with each other that is very deep. The bond between them is very strong, [which is] what motivates the storytelling,” Joe Russo said in the clip.

Captain America Winter Soldier Sebastian Stan“These are both characters that came from nothing. Captain America was basically an orphan, and Bucky’s family took him in. When he was asleep for several years, he lost everything that was dear to him. And when he took the serum and became Captain America, he gave away a large part of himself for a patriotic cause. So, you have a character who is searching for the only thing that he has left from his past… and that’s Bucky.”

Bucky became the Winter Soldier and found redemption at the end of the film. Now there will be more strife for Cap, especially with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, who helped hunt down Sebastian Stan’s “villain” in the previous film.

“They do care very deeply for each other, I think, as much as any two characters in Avengers do,” Joe explained.

Ultimately, the Russos consider Cap and Widow to be like a brother and sister. “They have a real respect for each other, but they’re very different and they admire the differences in each other, and they find a commonality those differences.”

Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. square off as Iron Man and Cap come to blows, dividing the Marvel team of superheros. Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland) come on the scene and things will certainly get explosive.

Captain America: Civil War opens on May 6, 2016.
