“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” opens in less than two weeks, bringing Marvel’s star-spangled superhero back to the big screen for the first time since 2012’s “The Avengers.”

The film, a sequel to 2011’s “Captain America: The First Avenger,” sees Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) working for S.H.I.E.L.D., where he reports to Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and sometimes teams up with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). He also finds a friend in fellow military man Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), also known as Falcon.

Although he’s adjusted to many aspects of modern life, he doesn’t know who to trust in a world of increasing moral ambiguity.

“For Steve, it’s about what is right,” Evans said in an interview with Hero Complex. “He’s relatively acclimated to the modern day — it’s not tech shock anymore, he’s not just like, ‘What’s a cellphone?’ It’s more about, given his situation, given the company he works for, what are we doing that’s the right thing? How much privacy, civil liberties are we willing to compromise for security? It’s pretty crazy how relevant it is right now.”

The film is largely based on Ed Brubaker’s comic book story line of the same name, in which a piece of Cap’s past comes back to haunt him in the form of a friend-turned-enemy.
