Marvel Studios has come a long way since 2008’s Iron Man. At the time, who would’ve thought that box office hit would pave the way for a superhero frenzy in Hollywood? Perhaps Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige — the man that helped build the Marvel Cinematic Universe — knew. Feige’s latest offering is Captain America: Civil War, a superhero showdown pitting Team Cap and against Team Iron Man.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Civil War is a rather large ensemble story, full of familiar and new characters. Both Black Panther and Spider-Man get plenty of screentime, but more importantly, they serve a purpose in the story. We discussed these two new additions to the MCU with Feige, who also talked about the lessons he learned from the first Iron Man, Civil War‘s airport set piece, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and more.
Below, read our Kevin Feige interview. Warning: SPOILERS ahead.

The suits that your favorite superheroes wear are iconic. From the helmet of Captain America to the cowl of Batman, these are the some of the most recognizable costumes in movie history. But because they come from the world of comic books, there’s already an influence from another artist. It’s up to the costume designers to determine which versions of a given comic book superhero or villain will influence their own designs to bring that character to the big screen, and some of them don’t make it in front of camera.
Ironhead Studios is one of the companies who creates superhero wardrobes, and the folks at Tested talked with founder Jose Fernandez about some of the work they’ve done which includes Captain America: Civil War, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and non-superhero flicks like TRON Legacy.
