Like clockwork, Entertainment Weekly has released a new set of covers featuring the factions of Captain America: Civil War. The groupings are pretty interesting though: first up we have a levitating Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) behind grounded Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) to support Team Cap, followed by a far more heroic-looking lineup of Captain America himself (Chris Evans), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), and Falcon (Anthony Mackie). On the opposing side there’s Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr), a floating War Machine (Don Cheadle), and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), followed by a fierce Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and levitating Vision (Paul Bettany), looking calm as always. Of note: no Spidey! (Tom Holland)
In the cover story, EW spoke with Chris Evans, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, and directors Joe and Anthony Russo. The quartet discuss a number of things, including how they chose who was on which side for the war, and the fact that the cast members of Captain America: Civil War are not playing a main role in the next several Marvel films, including Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, and Thor: Ragnarok, to give time to explore other characters more in depth.
Regarding the upcoming movie,
“This is an argument and a struggle with your family, for your family, and against your family,” says Chris Evans, who has now played the super-soldier Steve Rogers in six Marvel films (counting a cameo in Thor: The Dark World.) Normal people may not settle their quarrels by hurling each other through walls, but the actor says the emotional deathmatch in Civil War is just an exaggerated version of an ultra-tense holiday dinner. “I think it’s much more relatable, much more akin to [disputes] we have in life,” Evans says. “Arguments with your family can be far worse than struggles with your enemy.”
