"Bucky to me was always interesting because he stood out more clearly in terms of someone who had flaws. And though he was extremely loyal and very caretaking, and there were a lot of endearing qualities about him, that there were other things that like any muscle that you work out too much could sort of take over the rest. So, there were other things about him I was always hoping you could see in that first movie that if they sort of amplified that, that he could become something dangerous, necessarily so."
To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.

Okay, but the funny part here (aside from Lilian), is that Cap does this ALL THE TIME in the comics. Like, this exchange. Even in the little bit I read, I saw it two or three times:
Villain: You won’t do the thing, you’re Captain America.
Cap: Nope. *indicates less morally upright companion* They will.
Which kind of suggests that Cap is less about moral uprightness and more about plausible deniability. ;)
He’s still just a paladin in a mixed-alignment party. “I can’t kill that orc, because it’s unarmed, and I’m a paladin of justice. My ranger buddy, however, can totally do that. So go ahead, ranger buddy.”
Cap is ALL about plausible deniability.
I solemnly swear that I am up to no good...
