According to Anthony Mackie, the locations for Captain America: Civil War have been set, and the crew are going on a round trip around the world, with Mackie stating that it’s very much going to be a global affair.
Mackie – who is promoting his new movie alongside castmate Kevin Costner – provided an update on the highly anticipated sequel, Mackie says: “We start shooting in April, …so, it’s gonna be a lot of flying and fighting for about five months… and I’m not mad at all.”
Kevin Costner then pitched in to ask where they were going to be filming, and Mackie replied, “Puerto Rico, Berlin and Atlanta.”
Could the Puerto Rico location be tied in with the current storyline in ABC’s Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Given that the Inhumans movie is a good four-years away yet, it seems unlikely, but there could be easter-eggs lying around. As for the trend of Steve Rogers upsetting the applecart for The Avengers, Kevin Feige has already announced that Thor: Ragnarok will be taking those duties this year and we mustn’t forget about the diminutive caper that is Ant-Man – the last film in Marvel’s Phase Two.
Regardless, it seems that Civil War is going to be an epic political thrill-ride, and no doubt Kevin Feige, and The Russo Bros. (Anthony and Joe Russell) want to up the ante after last years spectacular Captain America: Winter Soldier.
Pitch in with your theories folks.
