While attending the Salt Lake Comic Con this past weekend, Chris Evans teased the events that lead to a battle between Iron Man and Captain America in next year’s Captain America: Civil War. Evans talked about his initial thoughts upon reading the script, and how he found himself understanding Tony’s argument, explaining that there needed to be more than one person in charge.
“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,” Evans said. “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.”
However, while Evans admitted to seeing Iron Man’s side when first reading the script, he went on to explain that he also understands Cap’s reasons as well. And even though there is a divide between both Iron Man and Captain America, Evans insists that isn’t a clear bad guy between them.
“But Cap has his reasons, he certainly has his reasons, and he is a good man and his moral compass is probably the cleanest,” Evans added. “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.”
