In just six short days, most fans will have quickly devoured Captain America: Civil War, and will be queuing up for second helpings. But right now, the wait seems excruciating. Marvel and Disney are helping this anxious bit of anticipation along with yet another sneak peek at the action. This time, they have released a featurette on Twitter that delves into the intense relationship between Bucky Barnes and his once and future best friend Steve Rogers.
In this behind-the-scenes look at how Captain America and The Winter Soldier mend their broken fences, star Sebastian Stan gives an eagle’s eye view into the action and drama that is set to play out in theaters across America this Friday. And one thing becomes very clear. Cap is Bucky’s only means of salvation. Says the actor.
“Bucky Barnes is learning about what a killing machine he’s been and how much damage he’s done across the years. [He’s] realizing that Steve Rogers, to some extent, is his only hope.”
The first Captain America showed Buck Barnes plummeting to his death in the midst of World War II. He then returned as a cyborg with a mission in Captain America 2: The Winter Solider, where he was discovered by Hydra and brainwashed into becoming a deadly bionic-armed assassin. Star Chris Evans is also on hand to discuss the unique partnership between Bucky and Steve. He explains.
“Steve feels a certain sense of guilt based on what happened to Bucky.”
Steve Rogers leads a newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. The action is set in the aftermath of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Following another incident involving the Avengers that results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps, one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
Team Iron Man includes Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Vision (Paul Bettany), War Machine (Don Cheadle) and the new characters T’challa (Chadwick Boseman) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland). Team Cap includes Captain America (Chris Evans), The Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). Captain America: Civil War also stars Frank Grillo as Crossbones and William Hurt, reprising his role from The Incredible Hulk as Thaddeus Ross.
Captain America: Civil War will kick off the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Three, which will be followed by Doctor Strange on November 4, 2016). Next up will be Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (May 5, 2017), followed by Spider-Man (July 7, 2017), Thor: Ragnarok (November 3, 2017), Black Panther (February 16, 2018), Avengers: Infinity War Part I (May 4, 2018), Ant-Man and the Wasp (July 6, 2018), Captain Marvel (March 8, 2019) and Avengers: Infinity War – Part II (May 3, 2019). The studio recently pushed Inhumans out of its July 12, 2019 release date, which was originally slated to be the last Phase Three movie, but the project doesn’t have a new release date at this time. Take a look at the latest Civil War preview. Then prepare the greatest battle ever seen on screen this Friday, only in theaters.
