It appears that, after hearing what Sebastian Stan has revealed about ‘Captain America: Civil War’, the action and violence will be something much stronger than we’ve ever seen from Marvel.
Speaking to WeGotThisCovered during Toronto International Fim Festival, the actor who plays the role of Bucky Barnes, aka the Winter Soldier, shares just how unsavoury things are about to get.
Stan reveals it’ll have “some brutal fighting. Some serious, serious fighting like you haven’t really seen before in any other film.” This is the actor’s second Marvel film appearance since 2014′s ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’.
Presumably he’s referring to the fighting in comparison to other Marvel films, rather than declaring it the most brutal in cinema history, but he certainly sets up the next phase of the MCU to be harsher and more adult in terms of its content.
When asked whether he’d like his character to take over the role from the current Captain America, Stan’s response was coy: “No, I really wouldn’t. Let me tell you; I think about that everyday… Look, it’s so not up to me, like, I really enjoy my job over there.”
It seems that Stan prefers the role he has, rather than sell into the Marvel big leagues like Chris Evans has. “I love the character that I have,” he says, and insisted “whatever Marvel decide, I’m game.”
In truth, it looks like it’s entirely down to Marvel whether they go the path of the comics, whereby Bucky takes over from Rogers, or if they keep them as standalone characters in the MCU.
‘Civil War’ looks set to be one of the most volatile Marvel flicks to date, with heroes taking sides with either Steve Rogers’ Captain America, or Tony Stark’s Iron Man. The pair will come to blows, with a continuation of the impacting political themes we saw trickle through during last year’s ‘The Winter Soldier’.
‘Captain America: Civil War’ will burst onto UK cinemas on 29 April, 2016.
