Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier is coming in fast, and the Sentinel of Liberty himself has been talking to ScreenRant.

When asked about where we meet Steve at the start of the film and whether or not he's comfortable with his new "modern" life, Chris had this to say:

Sure, well, he feels comfortable within the structure that he’s given. He likes to serve. He likes to take orders. He’s like a herding dog. He needs a task. And I think the issue in the first two, ‘Captain America’ and the ‘Avengers’ – well, ‘Captain America’ was about giving him the opportunity. Then he got the opportunity, and then he was thrust into a different world. And in ‘Avengers’, there were so many characters, it’s tough to kind of spend too much with any one. And on this one, it’s about him trying to not just acclimate to the modern world, but it’s always been Cap’s goal to do what’s right and to be of service, to help where he can.

In this movie, I think the question is, well, what is right? I think it was a lot easier in the ’40s to know who the evil was. There’s no disputing Nazis are bad. And now, it becomes a little bit more of a difficult answers. There’s a lot more of a grey area. What is the right thing? And are you of service to that cause? That’s where it becomes a tricky dispute for Cap because things were just done differently in the 40s. Threats are different now, and precautionary measures are taken now, can be questionable and somewhat suspect in his eyes. So it’s a tough hurdle for him to jump.


He was also asked about how his relationship with the characters (new and old) have come along. Here's what Chris thinks:

Well, I think it’s brought in more of a human direction. Cap’s such a good guy, it’s hard for him to bleed. Not just literally, but figuratively, you know what I mean? He doesn’t want to burden anyone with his struggles, and unfortunately, that’s what makes characters dynamic and interesting. So any way we can push him in more of a human direction where he does show weakness, and he does struggle, and he does connect with people and show vulnerability, I think that grounds him a little built. It just makes him more interesting. So all the relationships, especially with Natasha and with Sam. Even though we do have the Winter Soldier, he’s more of like – we’re doing third act stuff right now – so for the meat of the film, the majority of the film, the connections that he makes, I think, really bring him to life are with Natasha and Sam.

I feel like this is going to be the best MS movie yet, but the only problem will be that this arc for Cap should've been done in AVENGERS.
ezio619 - 1/30/2014, 10:00 AM
interestein-in avengers you dont have time to do that because it shouldnt focus on one character,you cant give alot of screentime to each character,this isnt an adjustment to everyday life for him,plus in avengers, it was sort of seeded in when cap finds out that shield is planning to use the tesseract to make weapons so he becomea alittle distrustful of them
Nomis - 1/30/2014, 10:06 AM
YES!!!! BRING IT!!!!!
DEVLIN712 - 1/30/2014, 10:07 AM
Just you wait Ciph, something big is on the horizon...

I got a feeling something this is going to be the "cliffhanger" to this movie...

dellamorte1872 - 1/30/2014, 11:32 AM
The avengers film focused a lot on tony stark tho
dethpillow - 1/30/2014, 12:34 PM
nice article, good job.
dethpillow - 1/30/2014, 12:39 PM
@Nomis - yeah, i think u might be right on that one.

Cap 3 could be a semi-Nomad type ramble on the open road, the real America revisited sort of thing. and of course weirdness rearing it's weird old head and turns out u can never go home again.
dethpillow - 1/30/2014, 12:42 PM
@Devlin - u mean something big... is that like a double shot neat?
or like u mean one of those fancy daiquiri kind of drinks blended and with fruit and a funny straw?

something big? hmmmmm, Mr Devlin, my fellow, u had my interest... now u have my attention, sir.
DEVLIN712 - 1/30/2014, 1:11 PM
Deth
There's something (not Marvell/DC related), just something I has looking forward to. I might keep it on the down low...

@nomis, I can see the movie endin' with everythin' in chaos, and Cap is on the run. Then the mid-credit scene is Cap makin' his way up the side of Stark Tower
(King Kong style). And breakin' through a window with Tony Stark settin' there, and Cap says "Avengers Assemble!"
ATrueHero1987 - 1/30/2014, 1:39 PM
@dellamorte1872 how is that?

On Cap's new fighting style:

Q: We were talking to the Russos about how this is a new fighting style for Cap as well.

Evans: Has anyone played the Captain America video game? (A few people say they have.) I love it, and I don't like video games. (Laughs) I love the way Cap moves. He moves so well. He just beats ass. That's how this guy needs to be moving. This isn't just a guy who was given the ability of speed and power. He's been training. He's got the frame of mind to absorb this information, so you can only assume that with training and his ability the guy should really be dangerous, and we should show that. If Jason Bourne can do it, Cap should be flying through these things. We've had a little bit of fun turning up his power, turning up his speed, and so the fights are a lot more grisly, impactful and, in my opinion, cooler.

Q: What I loved about the video game was the hand-to-hand combat and the shield.

Evans: Yeah! Absolutely. Shield-use and acrobatics, too. He's flipping off things and spinning and jumping, and just using his environment. It's not just punch-punch, kick-kick. That's fine, but this has to be more than THE BOURNE SUPREMACY.

@Gary9264 - hahaha... that is so rad and crazy...
what would Tony do if Cap did that?
that would be so weird, that is genius, actually.

just even the thought of Cap saying "Avengers Assemble!" with only one other person in the room is pretty rad. Cap's apeshit crazy, u gotta love the dude.
dethpillow - 1/30/2014, 3:16 PM
@capscyclops - nice... actually nice answers, right on, Chris Evans.

Movie of the summer! (at least for me)
Marvel has been incredible when it comes to casting and story lines!
I expect no less from this Movie or any other movie in the future...
Antman is gonna rock and so is the Guardians of the galaxy as well as the age of Ultron!
I've been waiting for all this since I was kid...
Marvel forever!
DC... Good luck catching up , that ship sailed!
Nomis - 1/30/2014, 6:05 PM
@ dethpillow - A hint at Cap being Nomad would be sweet!

@ Gary8264 - LOL!uh...okay.

Gary8264 - 1/30/2014, 7:47 PM
@dethpillow, thank you.
@nomis, the whole idea is that Cap's not gonna be able to fix the problem with SHIELD in his own movie. By the time it ends he's on the run and has to sneak into Stark Tower to get in touch with Tony. SHIELD is bein' ran by Ultron, and the only way to stop Ultron is for the Avengers to Assemble again. Cap goes to Tony because he assumes Tony has kept tabs on the other members and knows how to get in touch with each of 'em. Breakin' through the window and sayin' Avengers Assemble is just a dramatic way to end the movie, plus to have everyone know that the Avengers:Age of Ultron is on it's way.

@ Gary8264 - Okay, I see where you going with that. Not bad.
