'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' Has No Real Story Arc Says Co-Writer Christopher Markus


Empire Magazines newest issue is on stands now and features Marvel's next big blockbuster Captain America: The Winter Soldier. They spoke with co-scribe Christopher Markus about the screenplay and he admits that the story has no real "story arc":
"What helps us get past the pious Boy Scout that he could turn into is that he doesn't really want to be this guy. He would prefer to be Steve Rogers just walking down the street, helping people sometimes. He felt the call when the War came. He's kind of the still center and things happen around him and are influenced by him. It's interesting in this movie, for instance, to watch his relationship with Black Widow, who of course has a very different outlook. It can make it difficult with executives who often want arcs. It's very difficult not to sound lazy when you go, 'Well, he doesn't really have an arc'"
 Co-director Anthony Russo also adds:
"What made '70s thrillers interesting is that it was a very complicated time.We were peeling back the curtain with Watergate and realizing how corrupt the system was. Now, again with the proliferation of social media, you can blow the whistle on the NSA and it can be round the world in 30 seconds. And we have the morality of drones. It is right to preemptively use them to kill suspected terrorists prior to any sort of trial? So the times we're living in are even more complex."
 Captain America: The Winter Soldier hits this April!
