You picked the wrong side, agent.
Depends on where you’re standing.
#no joke probably my favorite scene from this movie#that unnamed launch tech has no way to protect himself - this is runlow this is strike#he has no idea if he can depend on the people //around// him to protect him#but he still says no i’m not gonna do that#and he’s scared he’s so scared they all are#but shield isn’t some faceless shadowy organization (or //just// that)#shield is these people - these techs - these agents - sharon#they believe in something greater - not loyalty to captain america but to the ideal that he represents#a better world - the work they were doing (thought they were doing - //were// doing) despite hydra#and they’re gonna keep doing that - fighting for what is right standing up for what is right#and that starts right here with this one simple gigantic refusal#he stands up to the biggest toughest guy the one who could kill him easily and says no (silvertons)
I was almost in tears at the sequence where you juxtapose Cap talking about freedom, and the price you pay for it, while the loyal SHIELD agents (most of whom appear to be techs and administrators) try to delay the heavily armed, utterly ruthless STRIKE teams who’ve been coopted by HYDRA. Watching them give their lives to try to delay the launch, seeing the pilots mown down by the Winter Soldier before they can give Cap and Falcon art support, hearing that one middle aged, overweight guy shout “Don’t launch! Don’t launch!” as he runs toward a helicarrier despite the STRIKE team shooting him without a moment’s hesitation - it was one of the best moments in the film, and so utterly heartbreaking.
We’ll never know, but how much you want to bet that Steve learned the names of every single one of them and wrote their survivors a condolence letter? Or attended as many funerals as he could once he was out of the hospital? THESE were the heroes, the men and women who had nothing but their courage, and their love of freedom.

Sherlock was all smiley and makin jokes because he thought John would be happy and excited to see him again after 2 years because he never ever anticipated that his fake death would hurt John long-term in any way and that John would be emotionally scarred from seeing his best friend JUMP OFF A BUILDING and he doesn’t even know how much he means to John and he didn’t even know he was John’s best friend, HE DIDN’T KNOW THAT. Punch my entire face
mark ruffalo is so down to earth like i feel like he doesnt even know hes a celebrity hes just some guy and all these famous people are around him and he has no clue what is happening
And then there’s Thranduil.

because they are shitheads
