After a successful run at the box office, Captain America: Civil War is now available for fans to own on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD. The final earnings give Civil War the fourth highest box office total for any film within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, coming behind Iron Man 3, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and The Avengers. Now that fans of the film have the pleasure of re-watching the film at their leisure, they can now watch their favorite scenes whenever they want.
Before some of the biggest scenes in the third Captain America installment were put to film, they first had to be planned into the script, with concept art being developed to give a visual preview of certain scenes. Now, what should be the final pieces of concept art for Civil War have been released, and they show early looks at even more memorable scenes.
The latest Civil War concept art to make its way online provides a look at what some of the big moments in the movie were imagined to look like before filming began. Among the concept art featured below are depictions of Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) saving Captain America (Chris Evans) from the suicide vest of Crossbones (Frank Grillo), Bucky (Sebastian Stan) getting his metal arm blown off, and Cap sparring with Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman). You can check out the new art, below:
All of the concept art above provides fairly accurate showings of the events and/or characters in Civil War, compared to the final product that was made. The character designs are of the final designs too, which should not come as a surprise. However, not everything in these photos were included in the movie. The piece of Iron Man landing at the secret Hydra base was removed from the movie or possibly not shot at all. His entrance pulling open the doors is (arguably) a much better way of showing the audience he has arrived than simply showing him land at the base.
The piece of Zemo (Daniel Brühl) standing in the secret Hydra base with one of the Winter Soldier pods open was also not included in the movie. While it could have been a chance to show Zemo killing the other Winter Soldiers, it would have been redundant later on when Cap, Bucky, and Iron Man walk into that section of the base. This was probably the better decision as it allows the audience to not truly know Zemo’s motives (to not use the other Winter Soldiers), in turn furthering the tension involved in the reveal of Zemo’s true plan.
Captain America: Civil War is currently available on Digital HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD.
