Marvel Studios has spent nearly a decade building up their universe.
Now, the superheroes are destroying it.
In Captain America: Civil War, the superheroes are divided. Who is their enemy? Each other. 2016's Summer Movie Preview from Entertainment Weekly captures their combative energy perfectly with their new cover photos.
Chris Evans explains:
“This is an argument and a struggle with your family, for your family, and against your family. I think it’s much more relatable, much more akin to [disputes] we have in life. Arguments with your family can be far worse than struggles with your enemy.”
Most impressively, Civil War will also feature the historic first black superhero, Black Panther, as well as bring Spider-Man into the mix.
Marvel's impending lineup includes: Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Thor: Ragnarok, all of which contain characters that are not involved in Civil War. Marvel studio President Kevin Feige explains:
“That’s somewhat intentional to go and explore the other aspects.”
Entertainment Weekly also discussed with the cast the reasoning why their characters chose their particular sides. The aftermath of Civil War will have caused such destruction it doesn't seem like there will be much recovery until Infinity War hits.
