Marvel‘s Captain America: Civil War, directed by the Russo Brothers, has officially wrapped its five-month shoot and we now have a few more set photos for you, probably the last ones. The pics were posted on Reddit and include some shots of the stars and/or stunt doubles from the set in Leipzig, Germany featuring a first look at Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) in his suit alongside Captain America (Chris Evans), as well as Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and War Machine (Don Cheadle) in suits alongside Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). Also spotted, The Winter Soldier (Alexnader Stan) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). So far, no captures of Tom Holland as the new Spiderman.
As we hear, but cannot see (urghhh), there were many great moments featured in the Captain America: Civil War (or as we call it now, Captain America vs. Iron Man) footage that debuted during the D23 Expo.
The footage reportedly includes glimpses of new Marvel superhero, Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), as well as a few familiar faces, including Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), The Vision (Paul Bettany), Ant Man (Paul Rudd), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.).
The footage, narrated by General Ross (John Hurt) opens with a fight between Black Widow, Falcon, Captain America and Crossbones (Frank Grillo). Over the course of the battle, Captain America gains the upper hand and Crossbones taunts him, saying, “You know…he remembered you. Your pal…your buddy…Your Bucky.”
The footage also previews the growing tension between Iron Man and Captain America, with Iron Man saying: “Sometimes I want to punch you in your perfect teeth.”
The highlight of the footage comes when Scoot Lang awoken by a group of Avengers while sleeping in the back of a van, and finds himself absolutely star-struck by the presence of Captain America. Imagine Paul Rudd’s face during this scene, that’s all we can offer for now. That scene probably comes as the direct continuation of after the credits scene in Ant Man, where the Falcon says he “knows a guy”.
Kevin Feige has revealed details of the role Black Panther will play in Captain America: Civil War.
Chadwick Boseman‘s T’Challa will feature opposite Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) and Captain America (Chris Evans) to offer a “very different point of view” to the movie’s events. If the movie will follow the comic books outline, we’re going to see Tony Stark and Steve Rogers go to war over different points of view on the roles of superheroes in America.
“It is a role that he is still in the beginning phases of taking on,” Feige told Birth Movies Death. “It’s a mantle he is only beginning to take on because his father is older.”
“The reason we introduced him in Captain America: Civil War is because we needed a third party,” said Feige. “We needed fresh eyes who wasn’t embedded with the Avengers and who has a very different point of view than either Tony or Steve.”
“We said, ‘We need somebody like Black Panther… why don’t we just use Black Panther?’ That’s how it went in the development process.”
In another interview, with io9, Feige denied reports of Hulk appearing in the film, saying that “[Hulk] is not a primary part of Civil War. He may not be a part at all.”
As if the new Captain America 3:Civil War doesn’t have enough guest Avengers already, it looks like there are more.
Mark Ruffalo, who still doesn’t have his own solo Hulk movie, was spotted on the set of Civil War.
“Since this week, US superstars Chris Evans (34), Mark Ruffalo (47) and Anthony Mackie (36) along with fellow actor star Daniel Brühl are shooting the third part of Captain America in Berlin,” reports a German outlet.
This now-more-than-a-theory is backed by the surprise casting of William Hurt as General Ross from the long forgotten The Incredible Hulk. At the end of The Incredible Hulk, Ross is approached by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), which makes him a legitimate, though unexpected, member of the MCU as we know it. Red Hulk anyone?
It all happened so fast… We barely got used to the Spiderman franchise changing hands and Spiderman changing face yet again, and now we hear that Tom Holland has already filmed his scenes in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War.
