I think civil war turned a lot of fans against steve. Which is sad cause its his film. People see steve as a hypocrite for not telling tony about his parents (bc in other movies, he was clearly fed up w/secrets and lies). I wish that scene never existed. the way some fans want steve to act makes me a little uncomfortable. many of them want steve to bow down and beg tony for his forgiveness. Not even as a friend but as some guilty puppy who should feel miserable forever w/out tonys forgiveness.
How is Steve not telling Tony about his parents hypocritical though like ???
And what was Steve gonna do, call up this guy he’s no more than work colleagues with and be like “yo so by the way, your parents death? you remember Bucky? my other half? the stars to my moon? the apple to my pie? well turns out he’s been tortured and brainwashed since 1944 and he’s the infamous Winter Soldier, and he killed ur parents, but like idk where he is now or what he’s doing so this entire dialogue has been pointless”
People that are that bitter about it have inflated the importance of Tony and his opinion to Steve, and reduced the importance of Bucky to him. Binch, he wasn’t ever going to do a single damn thing that put Bucky in danger unless it was completely unavoidable. And if that means not telling Tony, a notorious hothead who gets violent/lashes out when he’s hurt/angry, about TWS and his parents then it is what it is. Bc like Tony would have tried to find him and kill him or hand him over to the US government which is the same thing.
Anyway, they weren’t friends before the film, they weren’t friends during the film, frankly i couldn’t care less if they’re friends after the film.
