It’s hard to make a good movie. Many directors that normally make excellent films can sometimes miss the mark. Things happen. What you thought was an excellent script ends up not working. Actors that looked great in rehearsal have zero chemistry on set.
It’s even harder to make a great movie that both audiences and critics love. But that’s what happened when Joe and Anthony Russo made Captain America: The Winter Solider. Not only did the majority of Marvel fans rank the film as one of the best releases by the prolific studio, audiences around the world rewarded the film with their hard earned dollars by almost doubling what Captain America: The First Avenger made ($714 million versus $370 million) at the box office.
However, after seeing Captain America: Civil War, I’m absolutely certain Captain America will finally break the billion dollar mark at the worldwide box office because the Russos have crafted an incredible movie that audiences and critics are going to love. Loaded with incredible action, a fantastic script, emotional performances, and the perfect introductions of both Spider-Man and Black Panther, Civil War is one of those special films that fans will want to see again and again. Trust me, after you see Civil War you’re going to be even more excited that the Russos are helming Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2.
Shortly after seeing Civil War, I sat down with Elizabeth Olsen and Jeremy Renner for a video interview. They talked about their reaction when they first read the script, what it was like having Spider-Man on set (and how they never saw him), and getting to further explore the relationship between Vision (Paul Bettany) and Scarlet Witch. Check out what they had to say in the video above and here’s my interview with Chris Evans and Joe and Anthony Russo if you missed them.
Elizabeth Olsen and Jeremy Renner:
- Their reaction when they first read the script?
- Getting to work with Spider-Man (or how they didn’t work with him).
- What did it mean to further explore the Vision and Scarlet Witch dynamic in the movie?
