For those who have read the comics in recent years, seeing Steve Rogers/Captain America and Tony Stark/Iron Man at odds is really nothing new. In the old days the two always seemed to be pretty close friends, but then a little storyline called "Civil War" came along and the relationship between the two has been pretty rocky ever since.
Now according Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America) in an interview with the folks at MTV, that current dynamic seems to be carrying over to the movie universe as well.
"Even in the first 'Captain America' movie, they bring him into the modern world — that does happen," Evans told MTV News when asked how the character's dual presence in both World War II and the modern era will factor into Marvel's movie universe. "In 'The Avengers,' they start to explore this. He's a fish out of water, a man not in his time, and he's just coming to terms with the way the world is now and how it's changed since the '40s."
"I think there's certainly a dichotomy — this kind of friction between myself and Tony Stark," he explained. "They're polar opposites. One guy is flash and spotlight and smooth, and the other guy is selfless and in the shadows and kind of quiet. . . and they have to get along. They explore that, and it's pretty fun."
