CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR opens in theatres everywhere on May 6th!
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
- Robert Downey Jr. (“Tony Stark / Iron Man”)
- Don Cheadle (“James Rhodes / War Machine”)
- Chadwick Boseman (“T’Challa / Black Panther”)
- Paul Bettany (“Vision”)
- Emily Van Camp (“Sharon Carter / Agent 13”)
- Director Anthony Russo
- Producer Kevin Feige
- Producer Kevin Feige told us that technology use creates awesome scenes. For example the Remarkable sequence where Robert Downey Jr plays a 20 year old man. That was pretty incredible.
- Spiderman was brought into the movie in a very flawless way. Everyone knew they wanted to tell a complicated story between captain America and Iron Man. They wanted to bring characters that did not have any baggage to change the dynamic of the movie having characters that have not been so emotional invested on the Avengers storyline. That gives the producers opportunity to create organic ways to bring new characters into the movie and create balance into the story.
- Paul Bethany jokingly says he enjoyed hanging from a wire all the time. He enjoyed wire walk. He said it was fun being suspended by your testicles.
- The movie was just completed at the end of March 2016.
- War machine did not have upgrades as the other characters that have new tricks and guns. Don Cheadle hopes that War Machine can bring more surprises in upcoming movies.
- Team IronMan joked that Team Cap is all about burpees and pushups.
- Black Panther was an essential part of the story since they were writing the script. Because they wanted to have new characters and they wanted a character that was going to be picking a team for personal reasons instead of for having history with the Avengers.
- Emily Van Camp was really happy to be back with Team Captain America.
- Someone asked Robert Downey Jr how he felt about the reviews out there that say that the best part of the movie was SpiderMan. On his very humorous and sarcastic way he said he had not heard those reviews before. Then he added that only sociopaths are so self-centered that they cannot allow space for new people.
- Chris Evans (“Steve Rogers / Captain America”)
- Sebastian Stan (“Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier”)
- Anthony Mackie (“Sam Wilson / Falcon”)
- Jeremy Renner (“Clint Baron / Hawkeye”)
- Elizabeth Olsen (“Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch”)
- Paul Rudd (“Scott Lang / Ant-Man”)
- Director Joe Russo
- Producer Kevin Feige
- Since team IronMan called them team burpees, Anthony Mackie said “They are old. They’re team remember to take your Gingko Biloba or team where is my Viagra at.” What a great come back.
- Joe Russo said that action is very important in this type of movies. These movies are about action. The characters express themselves through action. Action has to have storytelling. You get tired of an action sequence if it’s not either defining a character or moving a story forward in some way. It takes an incredible amount of effort.
- The airport scene was the most difficult scene to shot. Joe Russo told us that this scene it’s filled with a lot of moving parts, a lot of different characters, you want to move each character forward, and you want to make sure you are not leaving anybody behind. We went well into the post process still reshaping, still rethinking, and reconfiguring that sequence to make sure it had its maximum storytelling thrust to it.
- The airport scene was filmed in Atlanta, in the middle of August and it was hot and toasty. But the actors keep being invested because they know that at the end everything is worth it.
- Joe Russo praised Paul Rudd’s talent calling him “one of the great improvisers that you can hope to work with.”
- Chris Evans admits that there is pressure on the name of the character being in the title of the movie: “There’s pressure, but I don’t think it is anywhere near the pressure that the people like the Russos or Marvel feel, because the movies live and die based on the directors and producers. We’ve all seen phenomenal actors and great scripts that still didn’t come to fruition in a good way. It really goes to show that a good movie lives and dies based on the directors. You can have all the other pieces in place, but if you don’t have quality storytellers you may fall on your face.”
- Paul Rudd could not believe he was part of the movie. He said he has seen the movies but he never thought he was going to be part of the Avengers. He was very geeked out: “I thought, oh my gosh there’s that shield and there’s that arm (The Winter Soldier’s left arm). Even when I was getting the suit on, there was this area where we would get changed and stuff, and it’s like ‘there is Iron Man’s suit, whoa!'”
