The Marvel Cinematic Universe will soon be entering its third phase of superhero films with the release of the highly anticipated Captain America: Civil War. The film will follow the conflict between Steve Rogers a.k.a. Captain America (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), reuniting many heroes from previous installments within the MCU like the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson).
This week, Marvel Studios lifted the embargo on set visit reports from the production of Civil War – where Screen Rant interviewed Evans, Stan, Olsen, Renner, Mackie, and Downey Jr. Now, a new video from the set reveals the cast talking about their stunt work on Captain America: Civil War.
Released by Entertainment Tonight (above), the video features their own report from the set, asking the cast about their fight choreography and stunts. The featurette gives viewers a look behind the scenes at certain moments from trailers, including Cap chasing Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) in a covered highway, Black Widow taking down a group of mercenaries, and Winter Soldier making the leap out of a high-rise building.
Though the video largely focuses on the returning cast members, specifically those that will be on Team Captain America – with the exception of Black Widow – Captain America: Civil War is also set to introduce two new heroes to the MCU: T’Challa a.k.a. Black Panther and Peter Parker a.k.a. Spider-Man (Tom Holland). Black Panther has ben featured in the marketing for Civil War, receiving his own poster as part of Team Iron Man, but the MCU’s iteration of Spider-Man has yet to make an appearance (as of this writing).
Even without one of Marvel’s most beloved comic heroes, Marvel Studios has built a substantial amount of buzz for Captain America: Civil War this week thanks to the set visit reports and the release of the final trailer for the film. Additionally, Civil War is poised to be Marvel’s biggest debut to date, with the longest runtime of any of the MCU features and boasting a 15 minute IMAX fight scene.
Of course, whether Captain America: Civil War will deliver on all the buzz that has been generated remains to be seen. But, though there might be skeptics or those that are uninterested by the MCU’s Phase 3, Civil War has already garnered praise from early reactors – including fellow Marvel Studios director James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy). Mackie event went so far as to say Captain America: Civil War is Marvel’s best film yet – that is some high praise to live up to.
