As we get closer to the release of the culmination of Marvel Cinematic Universe in the form of Avengers Infinity war, we find that the actors participating in the series have matured and along with them the characters that they play have matured too. It seems that Captain America has changed over his hiatus from the main fights of Marvel Cinematic Universe ever since his status as a “Fugitive of a state” in Captain America Civil War. The Star-spangled soldier lost his standing as the leader of the Avengers when he chose to side with Bucky Barnes Aka the Winter soldier ever since the signing of Zokovia Accords.
Ever since the fight with Iron Man, Steve Rogers aka Captain America has been ”officially” on the run. Unofficially the man has been seeking solace in Wakanda and running Clandestine operations in conjunction with Black Widow to do his part in saving the world. If not as an Avenger then as the soldier that Steve Rogers has always wanted to be. In a recent conversation, Chris Evans had this to say about how the Captain has changed since Civil war.
I think Cap knows how to compartmentalize. I’m not gonna speak to what the film addresses, but in terms of my character, I think he is slowly – he’s becoming disillusioned as he gets older. Every single movie, he learns a little bit more than the world isn’t the way he kind of wants it to be, and I think that’s why there’s a connection between him and Black Widow. Black Widow has seen a lot more than he is, and is kind of a little more calloused, and I think in a lot of ways, he looks up to that and learns from that.
First, it was kind of the hierarchy of a kind of government structure that fell apart, and then there was a friendship that kind of betrayed him or abandoned him, I should say. I think when those things happen, it’s like a destruction of a belief system to some degree, and you kind of can be a little cold as a result.
I’ve dropped the shield essentially. I kind of went rogue a little bit. But again, I think it’s in his nature to be of service, and I think to some degree in order to maintain sanity, he had to kind of function within a system. That’s how his brain works, there has to be some kind of functioning factory that he can operate within.
And so he’s been running these missions, answering to nobody, really. I mean, it really is the sign of a broken person. But yeah, that’s the wear and tear.
After Chris Evans comments we can be sure that fans are going to meet a very different Captain America than what we remember in the civil war. Rule #1 of culmination movies, if you want to make a character more dark and broody, give him a beard. This seems to be the case with Chris Evan’s Captain America as well. The character has let go of his shield and become much darker than we remember him. Even though Steve Rogers has lost the favor of Uncle Sam he is still the force for good that Captain America has always stood for. The idea is simple, even though we have not met the captain for a long time, he is still the greatest soldier to ever grace the battlefield of Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is quite clear that even though Steve Rogers has lost his stars and colors, he still has his Morales.
Fans can rest assured that we will see a very stringent and strong Captain America during the events of Avenger’s Infinity War. And it will not be inconceivable to think that the fandom will be overjoyed by this iteration of the character. Take a note DC, this is how you strike a balance between Dark and Light.
Avengers Infinity war hits theatres on 27th April 2018 starting Chris Evans as Steve Rogers Aka Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Bruce Banner’s Hulk and Josh Brolin as the Mad Titan Thanos.
