Chris Evans And Robert Downey Jr. On CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR


While the extensive press tour for Avengers: Age of Ultron is slowly coming to a close, Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., and many other stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are gearing up for the much-anticipated Captain America: Civil War, which officially starts filming on Monday, April 27. During multiple interviews, the Captain America and Iron Man actors talked a bit about how The Avengers sequel sets the stage for the 2016 follow-up, as well as what causes the two superhereos to fall-out. “Morality hits Tony, humanity hits Tony,” said Evans in a joint interview with Downey. “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.” Robert then added, “It’s going to make it even harder for them to come to an agreement, which I’m really excited about.”

About the rift between Captain America and Iron Man in Civil War, Chris Evans says, “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.” Meanwile, Robert Downey Jr., is glad to finally explore that rift as opposed to teasing it in the Avengers movies. “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,” he said.

During a separate appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman show, Robert Downey Jr. had talked a bit more about Civil War while adding credence that Marvel's Spider-Man will make an appearance. “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,” explained the Iron Man star. “I wouldn't call either of them evil, [but they want control.]" When Letterman had asked will Iron Man win, Downey said reiterated that it's called Captain America: Civil War, and that “I'm gonna go start shooting that in a couple weeks.” Asked if Spider-Man will appear, which has been all but confirmed, Downey replied, “He may well be... Yeah, I hear that they’re looking to cast a new Spider-Man.” Finally, Downey was asked who would the audience root for in the 2016 movie, to which he replied, “That’s up to the people,” before pointing to himself.



Marvel Studios' Captain America: Civil War is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. With an all-star cast that includes Chris Evans (Captain America), Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Frank Grillo (Crossbones), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), and Daniel Brühl (Baron Zemo), along with unconfirmed appearances by Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Paul Bettany (Vision), and Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), the highly-anticipated film is scheduled to open in theaters on  May 6, 2016.
