New details surfaced recently about the character Sam "Falcon" Wilson starring in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as a new alley of the lead superhero.
Chris Evans returns to play Steve Rogers/Captain America for the third time. The actor spoke to The Los Angeles Times' Hero Complex blog about his character's relationship with the fellow hero, played by Anthony Mackie.
"Meeting Mackie's character, he used to serve, now he works at the VA counseling guys who come home with PTSD-they connect on that level," he said. "I think they're both wounded warriors who don't bleed on other people. Cap has no one to bleed on. I think Mackie knows how to handle people like that. ...Sometimes when things are bad, trusting a stranger is the way to go."
Falcon will team up with Captain America and Scarlet Johansson's Black Widow to take down the new threat: Bucky "The Winter Soldier" Barnes (Sebastian Stan), Steve Rogers' old friend who was believed to be dead. Captain America will also face conflicts with S.H.I.E.L.D. as the traditional and moral character tangles with the corporation's technological tactics.
"For Steve, it's about what's right," Evans said. "He's relatively acclimated to the modern day - it's not tech shock anymore. He's not just like, 'What's a cellphone?' It's more about, given his situation, given the company he works for, what are we doing that's the right thing? How much privacy, civil liberties are we willing to compromise for security? It's pretty crazy how relevant it is right now."
Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens in theaters April 4, 2014. Watch a preview below:
