Fans and followers of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are excited at how “Captain America Civil War” will jumpstart the so-called Phase Three of the elaborate web of films Marvel has spun. Chris Evans (the guy who plays Steve Rogers / Captain America himself) gives audiences a peek into this latest offering and how it affects “Avengers 3: Infinity War” and the MCU as a whole.
A recent MTV interview with Evans revealed insights into the iconic role of Cap and how it has developed across the numerous films that made up the MCU. Cinemablend reported him as saying that “Captain America Civil War” will be the set-up for the ‘real battle’ that is going to happen in the third Avengers film. While this definitely caught people’s interests, several ways to interpret the news lead some fans to take the statement with a grain of salt. The latest Captain America might well be part of an epic narrative sprawling across two movies together with the third Avengers film but on the other hand, “Captain America Civil War” may be the ‘set-up’ simply because of the nature of what it essentially is: the first part of MCU’s Phase Three.
Director Joe Russo seems to reinforce the latter view, as Moviepilot reports that Russo already accepts the simple fact that “Civil War” is not an Avengers film, and certainly not the one that will resolve the perceived continuities of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Avengers 3: Infinity War.”
Whatever the case, even casual fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is having high hopes for “Captain America Civil War,” and producers are most likely expecting a blockbuster performance on par if not better than its predecessors.
Expect to see Chris Evans as Steve Rogers hit the big screen again as “Captain America Civil War” reaches theatres on May 2016.
