It’s hero against hero in Marvel’s next block­buster

SFX - - 2016 Preview Essential Films -

Af­ter bond­ing as both war veter­ans and su­per­heroes in Cap­tain Amer­ica: The Win­ter Sol­dier, Steve Rogers and Sam Wil­son (Chris Evans and An­thony Mackie) reteam in the shield-wield­ing se­quel. Ac­cord­ing to Evans, Wil­son is the con­stant Cap can rely on in the bat­tle ahead…

“Cap’s a sol­dier,” Evans tells SFX, “and I think he expects a lot of the peo­ple he trusts. And given the last Cap movie, trust has been one of the things that has been hard to find. So be­tween him and Sam there’s been a very tight bond. I don’t want to give too much away, but there’s a hard de­ci­sion for Cap to make, and Sam and him kind of re­main in unity.”

Mackie tells us that Civil War’s cen­tral con­flict be­tween Cap and Iron Man is one born of sib­ling ri­valry.

“Ev­ery­body can understand con­fu­sion and bick­er­ing be­tween fam­ily. That’s all this is. I mean, Tony Stark and Cap­tain Amer­ica are broth­ers, and they have a mis­un­der­stand­ing. Like most of the time when you bicker with one of your sib­lings. That’s kind of what Civil War has come to be. That’s why peo­ple are go­ing to re­late to it so well.” Joseph McCabe
