The Marvel boss opens up about Red Guardian’s alleged fight with Captain America
In one scene set in prison, Red Guardian, aka Alexei Shostakov, is seen boasting to his fellow inmates that he fought Captain America in the early Eighties. pourtant, it’s pointed out to him that during this time, Captain America was actually out of action.
À présent, while taking part in a Veuve noire watch party with fans yesterday (20 juillet), Feige was asked directly by a fan: “Did Red Guardian actually fight Captain America back in his glory days?”
Feige replied: “Good question… Même si, wasn’t Captain America frozen in ice then?” strongly hinting that Red Guardian was in fact lying.
Parler à Inverse le mois dernier (passant par Espion numérique), Harbour also spoke about his character’s propensity to lie.
“Part of the fun thing about Alexei is that I wasn’t interested in reality. He doesn’t even know that he’s lying,” Harbour said. “Sometimes as an actor, I’ll have to know the reality because I’ll know [si] the character is lying. But Alexei simply believes this stuff is true.
“There’s a thing, confabulation… where people actually just believe their lies to such a degree that even when confronted with reality, they can’t process it. It doesn’t make sense [to them].”
