A behind-the-scenes clip of Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan is garnering attention on social media as it is making MCU fans nostalgic about the franchise’s illustrious past. The clip in question is from Captain America: Civil War, frequently considered one of the best films in the MCU. The clip showcases Evans’ Steve Rogers / Captain America facing off against Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier.

The scene takes place in Bucharest as Rogers tries to bring in Barnes, who is a suspect in the bombing at the UN conference in Vienna. The enthralling one-on-one fight scene between Rogers and Barnes not only contrasts their emotional past but also sets the stage for the story’s overall conflict, leading to a schism between the Avengers.

Moreover, the action choreography and escalation of the fight sequence, which sees Tony Stark / Iron Man and T’Challa / Black Panther joining in later on, also reminds viewers of the narrative’s stakes.

The Current State of the MCU has Fans Worried About its Future

The aforementioned scene from Captain America: Civil War stands out as one of the best fight scenes in the MCU. However, it is also a reminder of the times when the MCU was a thriving behemoth that delivered exactly to the audience’s pulse.

The movies had plot lines that significantly impacted the MCU’s overarching narrative, particularly with Civil War, which dismantled the Avengers before the two-part climax of the Infinity Saga in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.

The same level of narrative cohesion has been lacking from the MCU’s Phases 4 and 5, with the focus shifting to more standalone stories or small-scale team-ups. While the MCU was building up the Multiverse Saga with Kang the Conqueror as the main antagonist, the character only made a handful of appearances and failed to have the same impact as Thanos.

Furthermore, actor Jonathan Majors, who plays Kang, was found guilty in a domestic violence trial, further jeopardizing any plans Marvel had featuring the character. Additionally, the slate of upcoming films leaves little room for the MCU to link the numerous new heroes the franchise has introduced along with existing ones before the two new Avengers movies that are on the horizon.

Therefore, it is easy to see why fans get nostalgic over the shared interconnectedness of the past installments, highlighted in clips like the one featuring Evans and Stan.
