In June 2015 we traveled to Atlanta Pinewood Studios to visit the production of Captain America: Civil War, the second film directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, and the second Marvel Studios production to use these new facilities (Ant-Man being the first the year prior).
We’ll share interviews and notes from what we learned on our two-day adventure throughout the week, beginning later today when the embargo lifts, but what we can say is that the focus of the day was on #TeamCap. That’s who we primarily observed filming action scenes, who we interviewed the most heroes from, and what we’re allowed to talk about today.
But before we get into that, Disney and Marvel have shared a new set of one-sheet character posters for Steve Rogers’ allies. Where there are no surprises in the six-character lineup given what we’ve seen in the Captain America: Civil War trailer, merchandise, and leaked promo art, we do finally get to see Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) in an official image on #TeamCap. There is not however, a poster for Sharon Carter / Agent 13, who’s expected to be on this team as well from the earliest concept art.
Take a peek and let us know who you’re most excited about seeing on screen (Update: and click here for #TeamIronMan posters!):
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.
Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd and Frank Grillo, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl.
Anthony & Joe Russo are directing with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee are the executive producers. The screenplay is by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016.
