Captain America: Civil War Review
Here’s an excerpt from our review (we loved it)…
The Captain America movies, by virtue of the fact that Steve Rogers is the cornerstone of the Marvel universe both in the comics and on screen, have been a combination of the two. Captain America: Civil War continues that tradition and, frankly, almost perfects it: more than any other Marvel film to date, Civil War juggles a number of different storytelling and character responsibilities successfully, resulting in an epic tale that feels incredibly intimate and puts the loyalties and ethics of the Avengers and others of their ilk to the test.

Captain America: Civil War Runtime
This one runs an epic 147 minutes, so maybe don’t drink too much soda. This is Marvel’s longest movie. We wrote more about that right here.
We’ve broken down every bit of officially released info, as well as some of the more credible Captain America: Civil War rumors in the sections on the next pages. Beware, because this may contain some spoilers…
Captain America: Civil War Story
We’ll start with the official synopsis from Marvel:
Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
There’s another official synopsis, courtesy of Marvel, which helps flesh out Tony’s side of things.
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.
While chatting with We Got This Covered, Sebastian Stan took a moment to give his thoughts about whether he’s interested in ever seeing Bucky become the good Captain himself (you can probably guess that answer), as well as what fans can expect from his next Marvel outing in Captain America: Civil War.
First on the count of whether he’d like to don the red, white, and blue himself, Stan sarcastically said, “No, I really wouldn’t, let me tell you, I think about that every day.” After a laugh, Stan added, “It’s so not up to me, and to be honest, I really enjoy my job over there. I’m really happy going to work and doing what I do. I love the character that I have. It’s up to a lot of different things, and whatever Marvel decides, I’m game.”
However, on the subject of what fans can expect in the immediate future, Stan was much more blunt and straightforward: “Some brutal fighting; some serious, serious fighting like you haven’t really seen before in any of the other films, which I’m really proud to say. And a whole lot of character and heart, because there’s a lot of people that are in the film, but you’re going to get a lot of character from everybody.”
Hopefully, this means more practical stun work and less CGI too. After all, everyone agrees that was one of the best aspects of the first few acts in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Sebastian Stan told us that fans shouldn’t worry, despite the large cast of characters, this is definitely a Captain America movie:
“The attention shift in the movie and sort of the nature of the movie is…people will understand why it’s not an Avengers movie, story, per se, because it’s tonally on the same par, if not more brutal, than Winter Soldier. And that really has to do with the Russo (Brothers, directors) and the remarkable writers that we have. So yeah, there’s a lot of the unfinished business from The Winter Soldier movie and still dealing with a lot of the stories that have been implicated in all of the other movies. But it’s definitely a Captain America movie.”
Captain America: Civil War Cast and New Characters
So that team of “New Avengers” we met at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron will go right into action in this one. In addition to the obvious returns of Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr., Captain America: Civil War will also feature Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Don Cheadle as Jim Rhodes/War Machine, and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch.
As of now, the official word seems to be that Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury won’t be in the movie, but that sounds a little hard to believe, doesn’t it?
Paul Rudd will join the team as Ant-Man.
The film will also introduce Chadwick Boseman as potential future Avenger T’Challa/Black Panther.
Most exciting of all is the presence of Spider-Man, who will finally be introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Tom Holland will play Peter Parker/Spider-Man, although he probably doesn’t have a very large role. It sounds like we might get to see the evolution of the Spider-Man costume in this, though. The Russos talked a little about their approach to Spidey right here.
Here’s a look at Tom Holland as Peter Parker on set:
And here’s a look at your brand new Spider-Man!
Emily VanCamp is back as Sharon Carter/Agent 13.
William Hurt as Hulk foe General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, who will apparently be a little more nuanced in his approach than Incredible Hulk fans have come to know him. He’s not the only supporting character from another film showing up. Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts will also make the scene.
Martin Freeman is here as Everett Ross, a member of the Joint Counter Terrorism Center, and a diplomat with ties to Wakanda (home of the Black Panther). Freeman has been playing the character off as a bit of a wild card. “He works for the American government…in conjunction with the superheroes, and certain agencies that help to tame the superheroes’ power, I suppose. So you’re not quite sure which side he’s on. It looks a little bit like he’s playing one game when actually he’s playing another.”
Captain America: Civil War Villains
Frank Grillo returns as Crossbones (the above image comes courtesy of Empire). Grillo, of course, appeared as traitorous SHIELD/Hydra double agent Brock Rumlow in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but he didn’t have Crossbones’ traditional gear. Now he does.
Since Crossbones is traditionally a follower of the Red Skull, we have to wonder if that means that character’s influence will be felt in some form. Or maybe he’s in the thrall of Daniel Bruhl’s Baron Helmut Zemo, another villain with ties to Nazi Germany and Hydra. Although, Mr. Bruhl promises that Zemo will probably be significantly different from his comic book version.
Captain America: Civil War is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. It’s produced by Marvel Studios’ president, Kevin Feige, with Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.
Directors Joe and Anthony Russo’s creative team also includes director of photography Trent Opaloch (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Elysium), production designer Owen Paterson (Godzilla, Matrix), and three time Oscar-nominated costume designer Judianna Makovsky (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone).
The film shot in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film’s production, as well as locations in Germany, Puerto Rico and Iceland.

Captain America: Civil War Teams
Jeremy Renner is lousy at keeping secrets, it would seem. The man who plays Hawkeye just couldn’t contain himself, and took to Twitter to reveal a small stack of concept art that shows which sides ther respective Avengers take.
Check it out…
Hawkeye has a new costume, too…
I really, really hope that he does the “Ant-Man balancing on an arrow fired into someplace strategic” trick.
Captain America: Civil War Set Photos
Check out your first look at Frank Grillo as Crossbones in full costume on the set of Captain America: Civil War. You may remember that Grillo’s character, Brock Rumlow, found himself in a bad way at the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. If you look closely, you can see the scars underneath his helmet.
And here’s a look at Anthony Mackie in his new Falcon costume (minus the wings).
Thanks to ScreenCrush for the images.
And here’s a look at Black Panther. That isn’t Chadwick Boseman in the suit, though, it’s a stuntman.
Thanks to Coming Soon for those Black Panther set photos.
