With so many superheroes joining the ranks in Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War," it's hard to tell where the "Avengers" end and "Captain America" begins. But the Cap himself, Chris Evans, says not to worry: "Civil War" is very much a Captain America film.
"I don’t know if it feels like an 'Avengers' movie," Evans told MTV News and a group of journalists at Disney's D23 Expo. "I haven’t been on an 'Avengers' movie where you have to really balance a lot of story lines; they do a pretty good job of kind of understanding the arc of what the story needs. To be honest, it involves Mackie to a great deal."
Fans will Cap and Falcon will be delighted to hear that even though "Civil War" is primarily about the conflicting ideals between Avengers Captain America and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), the heart of the film is Cap's bromance with Falcon (Anthony Mackie) -- and Bucky (Sebastian Stan).
"The relationship between the three characters is more so a bond of kindred friendship," Mackie said. "My respect for Cap helps me to help him find Bucky, because I know how much that means to him, knowing where he’s come from and everything and what he’s going through to this point. It’s more so an understanding and a respect than it is three guys chumming around having a good time."
We can dream, can't we?! Besides, it looks like BFFs Evans and Mackie do enough chumming around off set.
"Captain America: Civil War" hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
