PRESS STATEMENT FROM WALT DISNEY:
Will less than three weeks before Captain America: Civil War erupts in the Philippines, Marvel Studios has released three, new video featurettes to help fans cope with the long wait.
First is the clip titled “The Past is Prelude” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Fc-qgLGQ-I) which features footage from the first Captain America and Iron Man films, highlighting the philosophical differences between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark that may have made a confrontation inevitable.
The second video, “Brothers in Arms” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8K5QY8X91vI) features directors Joe and Anthony Russo along with star Chris Evans talking about the appeal of Civil War and why it stands apart from superhero hero movies in general and the films we’ve seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The last featurette, “In Good Company” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbiQhAF-X3Y) has the women of the movie, Scarlett Johansson, Emily VanCamp, and Elizabeth Olsen, talking about their characters (Black Widow, Agent 13, and Scarlet Witch, respectively) and how they relate to the larger conflict.
Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) 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 (Robert Downey Jr.) surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd and Frank Grillo, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl.
Anthony & Joe Russo are directing with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee are the executive producers. The screenplay is by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely.
Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War opens across the Philippines on April 27, 2016.
Marvel's Captain America: Civil War will be distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
