In the end, Athena must acknowledge her own flaws in order to grow up and move forward after dealing with her traumatic familial situation.
Chris Markus: We always wanted to approach Sam through the prism of a being fellow veteran. Someone who could speak to Steve on that level as opposed to, you know, because he’s Captain America. And also we brought up the idea that Steve, in addition to everything else he’s gone through, spent four years in World War II. That’s very traumatic stuff. And he has never had a chance to decompress about any of it.
Anthony Russo: One of my favorite lines from him is, where he says: “I’m more of a soldier than a spy.” I just loved that so much because it speaks to his relationship with Cap and their nature.
Joe Russo: You guys did a great job with this scene. This is probably the hardest scene in the movie because it leads to the biggest buy in the film, which is - well, maybe there’s a couple of other big buys - that Cap is gonna go back to a guy he met jogging on the Mall when his life is in danger because he’s the only guy he can trust. So it was important that these two connect on a very deep level, an emotional level in this scene.
Chris Markus: It’s always a credit to Mackie.
Steve McFeely: Yeah. I trust Mackie.
Chris Markus: You would go to Anthony Mackie. Some people you wouldn’t go to.
Joe Russo: Let’s talk about Mackie for a second. It’s a reason we cast him is one, you know, I’ve never not seen a truthful moment from him on screen, and two, he has this incredible ability to combine charm and integrity. A difficult thing to do is to be funny and convey integrity at the same time.
Steve McFeely: He’s not shallow.
Joe Russo: He has great depth as an actor which allows Steve to feel the depth, the audience to feel the depth, which makes you believe that Steve would trust this guy even though their relationship is so new.

On a scale of Christopher Eccleston to Anthony Mackie, how happy are you to be part of a 50+ year old franchise?
“Bastian Schweinsteiger has already won more than a century of caps for one of the strongest nations around and has now secured the World Cup itself. Add that to his seven league titles, numerous domestic cup trophies and a Champions League winners’ medal and his haul stacks up impressively against many of the best players to have played the sport. A fiercely committed winner, tactically astute and with the physical capacity to dictate games all day long, he is a manager’s dream and provides a perfect balance for a whole host of team-mates. The World Cup, and especially the final, is often said to separate the majestic and the great from the true echelons of world class. After a performance to rank alongside any which came before him in such a spectacular setting, Schweinsteiger can now be comfortably held in the same esteem as midfield legends from his own nation—such as Lothar Matthaus or Franz Beckenbauer—or even beyond, on the global stage.
Bastian Schweinsteiger, a true legend of the game. ”
Happy 30th Birthday Basti! (01/08/1984)
