Captain America and Ironman are the two central characters of the Avengers team. They first met in The Avengers and who can forget the argument they had. Steve didn’t just approve of Tony’s behavior. That time, the circumstances brought them together. Then comes Age of Ultron, everyone, including Steve, was angry because of what Tony did without informing the team of his plans. Then comes Civil War, and this movie just took it to a whole another level. The revelation made in the movie regarding Tony’s parents’ death was too much for Tony. In Infinity War, we didn’t get to see them unite.
Now, Captain is supposed to be ‘God’s righteous man’. And a theory by a Reddit user ‘sage12i’ couldn’t help but call Captain America a hypocrite. The user says, “here’s Cap complaining about Nick holding back secrets, bit hypocritical considering the fact he went on to hold back the fact that Bucky killed Tony’s parents from him?” I strongly disagree. The two situations are completely different, I think.
Cap admits that it was a mistake not giving Tony that information. But think about it, what good that would have done. Tony would have to relive the nightmare of his parents’ death. And this time, the pain would be much worse because he would have known that they were actually killed. The accident was staged. A user wrote a comment on this theory, “its Steve’s one mistake, that’s the whole point.” The way this news came out to Tony was regrettable. And it wasn’t really Bucky who did it. It was HYDRA. Steve must have known that if he told Tony about what really happened, Tony would hate Bucky. Tony wouldn’t be able to see behind the picture. Maybe that’s why he withheld this critical information.
