Is captain america overpowered in ‘civil war’? Chris evans weighs in
With reporting by Chris Kim
On one side of Marvel’s upcoming “Captain America: Civil War,” you’ve got Captain America (Chris Evans), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Sharon Carter (Emily Van Camp). On the other, you have Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), War Machine (Don Cheadle), The Vision (Paul Bettany), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson).
So how the heck is Cap’s team of slightly powered humans going to stand a chance against Iron Man’s unstoppable onslaught?
When MTV caught up with Evans himself at the junket for his upcoming directorial debut, “Before We Go,” we had to ask about the imbalance in power. So does Evans agree that Cap’s team seems out of their depth?
“Do we?” Evans said pointedly, before mysteriously adding, “Well, maybe you’ll have to see the movie to find out.”
I mean sure, yes, we’ll find out by watching the movie. Of course. But regardless of whether the heart of Cap’s team can beat the firepower of Tony’s team, Evans seems glad of the guys he has by his side.
“Mackie and Seb,” Evans noted when asked who his key team members were. “I’ll be in a foxhole with those two guys any day.”
And he probably will be, as “Civil War” looks like it’s going to rain hell down on the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“Before We Go” hits theaters September 4.
