“Captain America: Civil War” is said to be a simple story. Marvel president Kevin Feige explained the plot in his discussion with Zap2it. He said the film will pick up where “Captain America: Winter Soldier” left off. He also added that it is very different from “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
“'Civil War' is a relatively simple story. ‘Ultron’ had a lot going on. (It) is a surprisingly grounded story about two characters that most audience members have come to know and like and admire finding themselves on different sides of a political argument, like the country does on many occasions, and how they both respond to that. That’s the story,” he said.
He added that the personal relationship of Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) will also be explored. The two will reportedly stand against each other after the government passes an act to control the Avengers. Two groups of Avengers will be formed and civil war will break out.
Feige also explained that Captain America will attempt to save his friend Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) from turning into dangerous Winter Soldier. There will be reportedly some people in the film who will tell Evans’ character that he has to let go of Barnes since when the latter turns into Winter Soldier, he becomes the deadliest assassin.
“It’s a surprisingly personal story with a simple and very efficient plot that I think allows all those characters to have a presence and interact in a way that’s different from other films we’ve made,” Feige said.
“Captain America: Civil War” is being shot in Atlanta. Joe and Anthony Russo are directing it and it also stars Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Rudd. It opens May 6, 2016, in 3D and IMAX 3D.
