With production wrapping last month on Captain America: Civil War, fans are still waiting to see the first trailer, as the countdown continues for this highly-anticipated superhero adventure. Over the weekend, stars Chris Evans, (Captain America), Sebastian Stan (The Winter Soldier) and Anthony Mackie (The Falcon) appeared at the Salt Lake City Comic Con, where they revealed new details about this sequel, which kicks off Marvel Phase 3 next May. Chris Evans revealed (via Salt Lake Tribune) that there is no "clear enemy" in Captain America: Civil War, and that the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier has caused Cap to not trust anyone anymore.
"Tony actually thinks we should be signing these accords and reporting to somebody and Cap, who's always been a company man and has always been a soldier, actually doesn't trust anymore. Given what happened in Cap 2, I think he kind of feels the safest hands are his own. And these are understandable concerns, but this is tough, because even reading the script, you think I think I agree with Tony in a way, and I do agree that to make this work, you do need to surrender to the group. It can't just be one person saying this is right and this is what we're going to do. But Cap has his reasons, he certainly has his reasons, and he is a good man and his moral compass is probably the cleanest. This is a tough thing. This is what made it so interesting while we were filming, and it's hopefully what will make the movie great is nobody's right, nobody's wrong. There's no clear bad guy here. We both have a point of view, which is akin to most disagreements in life and politics."
Captain America: Civil War marks the fifth movie in Chris Evans' Marvel contract, although the actor hinted that he would be willing to extend his contract to come back as Steve Rogers. Very little is known about the Captain America: Civil War story, but with Chris Evans' contract winding down, some are speculating whether or not characters like Sebastian Stan's The Winter Soldier or Anthony Mackie's Falcon would take over as the new Cap, since both of these characters have taken over as Captain America in the comics. Anthony Mackie revealed that he doesn't think there needs to be a new Cap.
"I don't think we need a new Cap. I don't think Cap needs to change. I think [Bucky's actor Sebastian Stan] would be a great Cap, but then we're left without Bucky. I think I'd be a great Cap, but then we're left without a Falcon."
Sebastian Stan, on the other hand, revealed that, if enough fans demanded that Bucky Barnes turns into the new Captain America, it most certainly could happen. We have no clue what will happen in Phase Four, but it's possible that we could see either Falcon or Bucky become the new Cap. Here's what Sebastian Stan had to say about the possibility of becoming Captain America.
"I'll say this: They sure like to dangle a cheese in front of my nose a lot. They're like 'Oh yeah, that's where you pick up the shield,' and I'm like, 'Yeah, I've heard that one before. There it is again.' But I don't know. If I could say one thing, if anyone can have anything to do with it, to make it happen, is you And everything about his childhood was extremely inspiring. I didn't know that he had a sister who ends up going into an orphanage and later ends up dying of Alzheimer's. The fact that this whole story with his father, all those things were very real for me and very helpful in terms of pulling a person together." This apparently helped the actor appreciate, "the fact that this is why he ends up being used by HYDRA and the Russians and so on, because he comes from a really troubled past."
