Although we’re still one year away form Marvel’s next big superhero team up, “Captain America: Civil War” fans are getting all the action they need from spying on the film's Atlanta, Georgia, set. The most recent update comes the way of a fan who posted a brief video of an intense fight scene involving the title hero to social media.
Previously, set photos have revealed a funeral scene as well as the first look of the villain Crossbones (Frank Grillo). Now, the “Captain America: Winter Soldier” bad guy is back battling Cap (Chris Evans) in what looks like the fictional African nation of Wakanda.

The videos can be found here, via Instagram user @estevandam, and show Captain America squaring off with a tech-clad Brock Rumlow in the shantytown that many people believe is Wakanda. The official plot synopsis for the film mentions an international incident involving Cap’s team of new Avengers that inspire the government to call for regulation on super humans. It’s possible that this is either the incident in question or payback for it. As CinemaBlend notes, rumors indicate that Crossbones is responsible for the incident, which results in civilian casualties.
For those that don’t remember, Rumlow was Cap/Steve Roger’s friend-turned-enemy in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” They went on missions together for S.H.I.E.L.D. before Rumlow revealed he was actually a member of the villainous Nazi organization known as Hydra. When last we saw the character, he was laid up in a hospital bed with severe burns covering most of his body. It looks like he’ll return in “Civil War” for a little payback. However, this time, he will prepared for Captain America with some metallic fists of fury. After all, his last bout with the superhero didn’t end very well for him at all.

It’s not really a spoiler to reveal that the duo have an epic throw down in the upcoming movie as both actors teased the scene by exchanging insults and threats via Twitter, according to ComicBook.com. Grillo even posted a photo of the two (possibly stuntmen) in full costume going toe-to-toe with the caption “I’m about to kick you’re a--.”
As mentioned, Crossbones full costume was previously leaked online showing two mechanical fists. In the fight scene videos on Instagram, it looks like Cap has disarmed him, literally, as he’s only got one of the fists on.
