“Captain America: Civil War” is positively overflowing with Marvel Cinematic Universe characters. From Iron Man to Black Widow to Iron Patriot to General “Thunderbolt” Ross, the number of characters has had some fans worried Captain America might be overshadowed in his own film. Worry not, assures star Chris Evans in the spring edition of D23 Magazine, “Civil War” will focus on Steve Rogers’ struggles.
“Even though there are a lot characters, the focus is on Steve and his struggle,” he explained. “Especially his struggle with Tony Stark.”
“It’s exciting to see a guy who’s as optimistic and as selfless as Steve be met with letdown, betrayal, frustration, and selfishness,” he continued. “There are events and people in his life that test him — that challenge him and force him to reevaluate who he is and what he wants out of life.”
“We’ve seen it coming,” added Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. “The clues were there. When you watch the other films you see how Captain America and Iron Man fight the bad guys together, back-to-back, but they have differences. And there is something that happens in the world that divides them.”
