While 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' keeps exploding the box office, 'Captain America: Civil War' has commenced production. Featuring a huge cast of familiar heroes (Cap, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Falcon, War Machine, Bucky Barnes) and newcomers (Black Panther, Ant-Man, Vision, Scarlet Witch) entwined in a classic comic storyline, 'Civil War' promises to be a game-changer for the Marvel Universe. Here's an inside peek at the making of the film, directed by Joe and Anthony Russo for a May 6, 2016 release.
Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow)
Scarlett Johansson doesn't need to be in her Black Widow getup to get in on the 'Civil War' action.
Anthony Mackie (Falcon)
Featuring a costume upgrade from 'Winter Soldier,' Anthony Mackie returns as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Cap's stalwart pal and newly minted Avenger. He's seen here on a break in shooting on May 15.
Frank Grillo (Crossbones)
In 'Winter Soldier,' Frank Grillo played lethal S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Brock Rumlow. Here is the first glimpse of him in the guise of Crossbones, a major Marvel villain who plays a key role in the events of 'Civil War.' On his Instagram, Grillo posted a pic of him in costume ominously captioned, "I will find you. All of you."
Anthony Mackie and Double
Before he can take wing, Falcon (sans CGI wings) huddles with his stunt double during filming of action sequence on May 15.
Up, Up, and Away
The Falcon (here it's Mackie's double) lands with the help of a harness rig. The wires will be digitally erased and the wings digitally added in postproduction.
Captain America on the Run
Chris Evans, in full Cap gear, races through a crowd and over some cars during a chase scene. The Atlanta location has seemingly been transformed into an African street.
Chris Evans and company stare at something off-camera. The unknown menace will presumably be added via CGI.
