Chris Evans feels that fans will be able to relate with Captain America: Civil War more-so than the previous films due the film’s central conflict.
The 34-year-old actor returns as the patriotic superhero in the upcoming Marvel film, marking the third in the Captain America series. For his alter ego Steve Rogers/Captain America, a rift is formed as both he and Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) try to protect the world from a new enemy. It follows The Avengers being split into two opposing teams, due to causing collateral damage together. Eventually things become bitter between the former allies – something Evans feels viewers will be able to relate to.
“This is one of the first times Steve doesn’t know what side he’s on or what the right answer is,” he told Empire magazine. “With the first Captain America, I think we can all agree that Nazis are bad. The aliens (in Avengers Assemble) are no good either; we can all get on board with that notion. This conflict is more mirroring that which we deal with on a daily basis, where it’s just different points of view. There’s no clear right, no clear wrong, and it’s hard for him to understand what the right move is.”
Luckily Captain America has the help of his old friend Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) in battling Iron Man. But this means Steve must look out for his partner, all the while doubting the governing body controlling his actions.
“He is questioning whether his allegiance should be to anyone other than his own will,” Evans added. “There’s collateral damage to the action we’ve (the Avengers) have taken, and there’s going to be people with different points of view to ours who cause us to regret our actions.”
