The directors commented that almost every aspect of the movie is a lot bigger now; even with the actors. The Russos give a special shout out to the casting, which they say is the most important aspect and one that Marvel does very well. The Russos comment on how big a fan they are of Marvel, and the comics from which they are based.

And for the fans out there who are worried about the trailers showing too much, the Russos elaborate on the “airport battle” scene that shows the two sides coming to blows in an all out fight. With their hyper-realistic fighting style, which was complimented on by Dennis, the Russos discuss how they wanted to make the action much bigger in this movie; something that everyone agrees was accomplished.

The interview leads into a lot of different aspects from the film, to the filmmaking all the way to how Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man was included in the movie; with a discussion on the other major new character introduced in the Marvel Universe, Chadwick Boseman‘s Black Panther.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
