More photos have emerged from the new Captain America: Civil War film that show Cap and Falcon going incognito.
The film is set to feature a wide variety of characters from the Marvel cinematic universe including Iron Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Falcon, War Machine, Ant Man, The Vision, and Scarlet Witch, the last three only recently appearing in the universe. This is the first time a ‘solo’ film has had so many others from the cinematic universe. Usually characters such as these appear only as cameos or rather briefly. There are exceptions to this however as we have seen Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury, Scarlet Johansson as Natasha Romanov and Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, appearing in several of the films including Iron Man, Captain America and even Clark Gregg in the Thor film, but let’s not remember that shall we.
It is therefore turning out to be more like an Avengers film than anything else.
However there are still some classic Captain America characters set to appear. “Sebastian Stan will also be back as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier…, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter/Agent 13… [and] Frank Grillo as Brock Rumlow.”
It is unknown whether Bucky, Steve Rogers childhood friend, is set to be good or bad. Last we saw of Brock Rumlow he was in a hospital with burns all over his body, but as a living hydra agent we can only assume he’s going to be one of the bad guys. Which in a film with good guys on either side of the war is going to turn into a very confusing and chaotic film, I can’t wait.
What is fascinating however is that there are some unlikely additions to the cast. “William Hurt as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross” is set to return. Yes that right General Ross from The Incredible Hulk film. That can only mean that the film is part of the universe, not really made clear upon the recast of Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, and that The Abomination and Dr Samuel Sterns must exist, I wonder what happened to them. It is unknown whether the Hulk is set to be in the film but it would make an interesting scene between the Ross and Banner.
Comingsoon.net also gave us a small hint as to what we should expect from the film. “[The film] 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.”
Like I said earlier, it is therefore turning out to be more like an Avengers film than anything else. However this isn’t a bad thing and it certainly does seem like an interesting story. It’s difficult to work out who would be on which side during the war though.
Captain America: Civil War is set for a UK release on 29th April 2016 and US release on 6th May 2016.
