COMIC REEL: Evans Talks Reason Behind "Civil War" Division; Paquin Denies Involvement In "Gambit"


The Salt Lake Tribune has coverage from Salt Lake Comic Con, which featured a panel with Chris Evans wherein the "Captain America" lead revealed more about the division between his hero and Iron Man.

"Tony actually thinks we should be signing these accords and reporting to somebody and Cap, who's always been a company man and has always been a soldier, actually doesn't trust anymore," said Evans. "Given what happened in 'Cap 2,' I think he kind of feels the safest hands are his own. And these are understandable concerns, but this is tough, because even reading the script, you think I think I agree with Tony in a way, and I do agree that to make this work, you do need to surrender to the group. It can't just be one person saying this is right and this is what we're going to do."

"But Cap has his reasons, he certainly has his reasons, and he is a good man and his moral compass is probably the cleanest," continued Evans. "This is a tough thing. This is what made it so interesting while we were filming, and it's hopefully what will make the movie great is nobody's right, nobody's wrong. There's no clear bad guy here. We both have a point of view, which is akin to most disagreements in life and politics."

The Salt Lake Tribune chatted with both Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, hearing from both the Falcon and Winter Soldier their thoughts on who should take over for Chris Evans should he hang up his shield.

"I don't think we need a new Cap," said Mackie. "I don't think Cap needs to change. "I think [Sebastian Stan] would be a great Cap, but then we're left without Bucky. I think I'd be a great Cap, but then we're left without a Falcon."

Sebastian Stan had a different take on the "next Captain America" question when it was posed to him at the con. "Myself," replied Stan when asked who should replace Evans. "I'll say this: They sure like to dangle a cheese in front of my nose a lot. They're like 'Oh yeah, that's where you pick up the shield,' and I'm like, 'Yeah, I've heard that one before. There it is again.' But I don't know. If I could say one thing, if anyone can have anything to do with it, to make it happen, is you."

While speaking to IGN, Mark Millar said that if "Wolverine 3" wants to adapt "Old Man Logan," it can easily do so without using Marvel Studios-owned characters.

"Basically Wolverine doing the road movie is the important thing and he has a friend with him. But that friend could be Cyclops and he could be blind by the fact that his ruby-quartz visor is broken and he has to keep his eyes closed the whole time and everything, but still insists on driving the car they're crossing America with. There's lots of stuff. Instead of the Hulk, you could have the Blob or something."
