Marvel’s $170 million sequel “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is hitting cinemas sooner than you may think (less than three months), and now Hero Complex has done an interview with the film’s star Chris Evans along with posting some new photos.
Evans says the main appeal of this film is seeing how this unfailingly good and very moral guy wrestles with the much more complicated realities of modern politics:
“For Steve, it’s about what is right. He’s relatively acclimated to the modern day – it’s not tech shock anymore, he’s not just like, ‘What’s a cellphone?’ It’s more about, given his situation, given the company he works for, what are we doing that’s the right thing? How much privacy, civil liberties are we willing to compromise for security? It’s pretty crazy how relevant it is right now.”
The actor also talked about why Steve Rogers and Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson (aka Falcon) come together:
“Meeting Mackie’s character, he used to serve, now he works at the VA counseling guys who come home with PTSD – they connect on that level. I think they’re both wounded warriors who don’t bleed on other people. Cap has no one to bleed on. I think Mackie knows how to handle people like that. … Sometimes when things are bad, trusting a stranger is the way to go.”
