So we already know from the first Captain America: Civil War trailer that Captain America’s (Chris Evans) old buddy Bucky (Sebastian Stan) will be playing a key role in the movie – perhaps even the spark for the titular civil war.
It’s unclear yet exactly how the Civil War breaks out. But Evans has given us just a little more detail about why Cap chooses his old mate over his more recent compatriot Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr).
“Had Bucky not been brainwashed he’d be doing the same thing Cap is doing, taking orders from S.H.I.E.L.D. and fighting for the country and then realizing S.H.I.E.L.D. is corrupt. But Bucky’s a different situation. He obviously couldn’t make these choices.
This is — I don’t want to give too much about the plot away but Bucky’s a big piece of the puzzle in this movie just because it gives Steve something that he really hasn’t had besides Peggy, but even Peggy is well on in her life.”
Tragically, it’s all about recapturing a past that was lost to Cap. Remember, he spent decades frozen in that block of ice, being denied of a life with Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell):
“No one on this planet knew him then. No one is left. He doesn’t have any peace with his youth. He doesn’t have any peace from his life, so Bucky and whatever happens with Bucky in this movie…
That’s a big piece in terms of him kind of finding his own purpose in what he’s fighting for and how that friendship can come back to life. Not just them as soldiers, but them as friends.”
We also have some brand new images from the movie:
