Captain America (Chris Evans), Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) are ready to charge. They’re lined up, ready to run to an all-out sprint even though the weather in Georgia on this May day is plenty hot and it must be even hotter under all the rubber they’re wearing. But there’s no time to focus on that because today is the “splash page” begins. Today’s the battle that begins “Civil War”.
My fellow journalists try to do the math about who must be on the other side of the battle that’s unfolding. Right now, they’re only shooting the “Team Cap” stuff, so the rest of us are saying, “So the other side has to be Iron Man…War Machine…Scarlet Witch…Vision…and maybe Black Panther?” It’s a fun way to pass the time as the crew resets and the actors prepare to run again.
I wish I could say this was a more “eventful” set visit, and while we did get to see some stunt doubles do some brawling, this was a set visit that was largely about coming down to Pinewood Studios in Atlanta to interview the talent. Marvel loves its secrecy, and most of the actors were pretty guarded. Thankfully, we also got to interview the directors Joe & Anthony Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) as well as screenwriters Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and producer Nate Moore (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), who were more liberal in talking about the script without giving anything away (they’re more confident in what they can and can’t say while the actors tended to err on the side of caution).
However, from the boatload of interviews we did, we got a lot of great information about Captain America: Civil War. Here are 115 things to know about the film.
