As the release of Captain America: Civil War edges closer, we're all ready for a record-breaking and world-shattering movie. Early viewers came back with incredible reviews, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige teased that we were entering "a deconstruction phase with Civil War," and the movie is currently tracking for a domestic opening of $175 million-plus.
To fuel our feverish anticipation even more, it seems like the cast hasn't run out of details they could reveal about what is going down in Civil War. In a fresh interview with IGN, Chris Evans a.k.a. Captain America revealed that he loved his scene with the newcomer to the Marvel Universe, Spider-Man actor Tom Holland.
'I Really Love The Scene We Have Together'
Asked what he thinks of the new Spider-Man character — who so defiantly steals his shield in the trailer! — Chris Evans said he loved the young actor and the scene they had together.
"I don't want to give too much away, but it's brief, I think I can say brief, but I really love the scene we have together, it's a brief, a little wink, a little nod, and I think there's a — it's nice, and I think Tom is phenomenal."
So although Spider-Man's total screen time has been estimated at 30 minutes, it looks like he's not going to be around Cap much. At least it's good to hear from one of his co-stars that he's as fantastic as the first reviews pointed out.
Cap Is 'Looking For Something To Call Home'
In the first part of this short interview, Evans also dives a little more into the psychology of his character. Asked how Cap sees the world at this point, Evans explains that this is a critical point for him, a moment where he questions his own values and looks for something he can really hold on to.
"This is the tricky thing with Cap: He's always defined himself based on his allegiance to a system, an allegiance to a government, an allegiance to an ideal. And I think in 'Winter Soldier,' when that ideal, that structure, failed him and crumbled, I think he's looking for a way to define himself — a home, essentially. And I think he's found that within his group of Avengers. These Avengers, they are his teammates, they are his family, and so when they have this stake driven between them in terms of how we need to go forward, it really cuts them to the core. And I think that's why he ends up pursuing...I don't want to give too much away, but Bucky becomes such a huge driving force in his motivations, because he's just looking for something to call home, he's looking for something that is true to him, and Bucky is the last remaining piece of his past."
If you are #TeamCap, that's just probably going to make you love him even more. We want you to find a home, Cap! You deserve it! Just bring back Agent Carter already — *sob*
Either way, Evans's exploration of his character's stakes is another example of what should make Civil War so great: The Avengers have been around for quite some time now, and it's fascinating to get to the bottom of each hero's beliefs and psychology. As one early viewer told BMD: "The last act plays out as an emotional horror movie because the film gives both Tony and Steve solid reasoning, and because it truly makes you feel the depths of this schism." Hold on to your guts, because it's going to be a tough ride!
