Chris Evans & Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige both share their opinions on the character of Bucky in Joe Johnston’s upcoming comic-book movie Captain America: The First Avenger

With the release of Joe Johnston’s Captain America: The First Avenger getting closer and closer by the day, things are certainly starting to amp up for the promotion of the film. Over at Marvel.com they have an article up discussing the differences between Sebastian Stan as Bucky in this film, and the character as he is portrayed in the comic-books, most notably his relationship with Steve Rogers/Captain America. Chris Evans (Steve Rogers) and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige weigh in with their opinions on the character below.

“In the original Captain America comic books, Bucky was a young guy, kind of a sidekick who Steve had to look out for,” said Evans. “We did it a little differently, but the relationship is still very well developed. I think it’s one of the best in the film–you really care about these two guys.”

And exploring those types relationships are what can help make good super hero movies great. Watching our protagonist slice and dice handfuls of malcontents can be worth the price of admission, but understanding what fuels the character emotionally is what defines them as a hero–and why audiences will continue to follow their story.

“This movie takes place over two or three years, so we don’t see everything Cap and Bucky did over that time period,” said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. “There are many gaps that can be filled in later.”
