Downey Jr. & Evans Talk “Civil War”

As the press winds down for “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” a few final quotes about “Captain America: Civil War” have come to light courtesy of the film’s two key stars Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans.

Filming officially kicks off tomorrow on the project which sees the two superheroes falling out over a superhero registration act – Tony Stark supports it, Steve Rogers does not.

Evans talks about how the fallout of ‘Ultron’ impacts Tony and leads to his decision: “Morality hits Tony, humanity hits Tony. All of a sudden he feels responsible. Neither one of them are blindly convicted. It’s blurry and that’s what makes it great. No one’s right, no one’s wrong… It’s like a marriage: We love each other but it’s explosive. You’re working toward the same goal but you have very different approaches to it.”

Downey adds: “It’s going to make it even harder for them to come to an agreement, which I’m really excited about… I’m really stoked to see when we have more stuff to actually do together besides like act like we’re about to have a fight one day.”

Downey also spoke about it a bit more during an appearance on David Letterman’s show last week, saying: “Well, it’s called Civil War, and there was a strain of comics where Captain America and Iron Man, they went on different sides, and they fought each other. I wouldn’t call either of them evil, [but they want control.]”

Downey was also asked about Spider-Man’s appearance in the film: “He may well be… Yeah, I hear that they’re looking to cast a new Spider-Man.”

These aren’t the only two getting ready for the film. Speaking with The Independent, actor Daniel Bruhl confirmed he’ll be playing Baron Helmut Zemo and added: “I think I can tell you that without being thrown into Marvel prison. For the first few days I’ll walk around like a little boy, just amazed by the megalomania of it. It’s such a huge project. We could do 20 films with the budget.”

Meanwhile Frank Grillo has posted a tweet in excitement for his return as the villain Crossbones following the events of ‘The Winter Soldier’.
