Marvel’s president, Kevin Feige, has opened up on whether Red Guardian and Captain America did actually fight back in the eighties.
He did so whilst taking part in a #BlackWidowWatchParty (via Digital Spy) with fans on July 20th.
During this watch party, Feige was asked the following question: “Did Red Guardian actually fight Captain America back in his glory days?”
Here’s what he had to say on the matter:
Good question… Although, wasn’t Captain America frozen in ice then?
What Feige is referencing here is the fact that Captain America was in ice until 2011.
That was when he was ‘thawed out’ by Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury.
However, if you’ve watched Avengers: Endgame, then you’ll also know that Cap actually went back in time and spent his life with Peggy Carter.
Therefore, Red Guardian could have very easily had a fight with him in the 80s.
Did Red Guardian and Captain America really fight?
There’s also another possibility.
Red Guardian might have been fighting another Captain America and thought it was the original one.
The Falcon And The Winter Soldier introduced MCU audiences to Isaiah Bradley and Red Guardian might have come up against him instead.
Although, that’s a bit of a long shot because I believe he would have been in prison during the 80s.
He was a super-soldier during the time of the Korean war which took place in the 1950s.
That said, the US government could have been using other super-soldiers during the 1980s.
And then, Red Guardian could have been lying about his fight with Cap.
I’m hoping that we do find out what really went on between Cap and Red Guardian.
I’m pretty sure he would give the new Captain America, Sam Wilson, a run for his money in a fight.
