Why No Avengers Died in Captain America Civil War

Despite the fact that most of The Avengers went head-to-head in Captain America: Civil War, not one of them died. Sure, War Machine (aka James Rhodes) walked away with a bit of a physical impairment, but that’s about as bad as it got for our heroes. However, directors Anthony & Joe Russo confirm that they once talked about killing off various characters in the sequel, including Captain America himself.

Black Panther Suit Created by Visual Effects

The creation of the entirely computer generated superhero suit for Green Lantern in the 2011 film was so bad that star Ryan Reynolds mocked it when he played Deadpool earlier this year. However, it turns out that it’s possible to have an entire superhero suit created with visual effects, and you probably didn’t even know that it happened this past summer.

In Captain America: Civil War, we met T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), a prince of Wakanda tragically turned king of the nation when an explosion kills his father. But in addition to being the new leader of his people, T’Challa is also the warrior known as Black Panther. And it turns out that the suit he wears just couldn’t be perfected practically, so they opted to have it created entirely with visual effects by Industrial Light & Magic.

Avengers Infinity War Set Photo - Thanos

Production on The Avengers: Infinity War won’t officially begin until November. However, directors Anthony & Joe Russo are already busy at work on pre-production. And to prove that they’re busy preparing to shoot the sequel (which is no longer the first chapter of a two-part sequel), they’ve posted a photo from the set to show their rehearsal time with Josh Brolin as the Mad Titan known as Thanos.

Captain America: Civil War bloopers 2

Captain America: Civil War was a somber affair, and understandably so — the film rocked the very notion of the Avengers to its very core by pitting hero against hero and friend against friend. It was downright heartbreaking to see Steve and Tony come to blows despite their own best efforts to reach a common ground, and then to see the rest of the Avengers forced to pick sides.

But behind the scenes, it was a whole other story. With the film’s home video release just around the corner, Marvel Studios has released the Civil War blooper reel, and it’s silly, endearing stuff. Captain America may be going through some heavy stuff, but Chris Evans is enjoying the hell out of himself, and Sebastian Stan smiles more in these few minutes than Bucky probably has in the past 70 years. Scarlett Johansson‘s tough action hero schtick gets undermined by faulty equipment, and Robert Downey Jr. just can’t help getting in a snarky remark or two. Anthony MackieJeremy RennerPaul BettanyElizabeth Olsen, and Martin Freeman all make appearances as well.

Captain America 3 Zombie Storyline

Robert Downey Jr. landed a huge paycheck for Captain America: Civil War. The actor, whose contract had expired before the Captain America sequel, was reportedly paid $40 million upfront and a significant back end fee. This enormous payday, however, almost didn’t happen, so directors Anthony and Joe Russo and all involved had to consider other stories to tell. What was another story that was a viable option for the filmmakers? Cap taking on zombies or, as Joe puts it, infected people that are similar to zombies.

Below, learn more about an early Captain America 3 zombie storyline.

Civil War Iron Spider Red Hulk

Captain America: Civil War had plenty going on as it is, with over a dozen superheroes including a couple of big new ones. But it could’ve been even more crowded. At one point there was speculation that Red Hulk and/or Iron Spider could make an appearance in Civil War, and directors Joe and Anthony Russo have now confirmed that both were under consideration early on — and that they may yet crop up in future Marvel movies.  Read More »

The Avengers: Infinity War

Marvel Studios had initially announced that they would be making the third and fourth installments of The Avengers series back to back, under the guise of a two-film epic event titled The Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2.
