Chris Evans Talks ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Plot & Conflict

The upcoming Captain America: Civil War is going to differ quite a bit from the comic series of the same name. We’ve heard for quite some time that rather than deal with secret identities as seen in the comic book series of the same name, the film’s conflict will revolve around  accords that are meant to govern superheroes. These come into play after the events of Age Of Ultron with the governments of the world becoming worried about The Avengers running around unchecked.

Not everyone is going to agree with these accords, especially not Steve Rogers, and this conflict will force people to choose sides. However, while speaking at Salt Lake Comic Con, Evans confirmed that this is indeed the plot of the film and said that he doesn’t think there is a right side.

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.

Evans further commented:

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.
