Captain America: Civil War is shaping up to be a huge game changer in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and D23 this year is giving us plenty to talk about, with a new logo debuting, and first footage being shown. The film raises many questions about who is on what side, and is the fight worth it. Anthony Mackie who portrays the Falcon weighs in on this.
Captain America: Civil War stars Chris Evans (Captain America/Steve Rogers) and Anthony Mackie (Falcon/Sam Wilson) surprised fans at D23 on Saturday. They flew in from Germany, where Civil War is currently being filmed, to debut footage from the film and to talk to the press about it.
When asked what it is like filming this movie and what the mind set everyone has preparing for it, Mackie had this to say: “It’s not MMA. We definitely have gloves on, it is more of a family dispute. That’s what’s so great about this movie and the characters how they work together. It’s more so when you have a sibling rivalry. The reason why people can relate to these characters so much is because they can relate to what they’re going through. Everyone has fought with one of their siblings or one of their friends—wanted to make up with them but couldn’t figure out the best way to do it.”
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.
Captain America: Civil War opens in theatres May 6th 2016 and as we have said countless times by now, we honestly cannot wait for this movie.
