The Avengers have never been without internal conflict. The first Avengers had the superheroes sizing each other up and getting testy with one another; the second one saw everyone getting (justifiably) pissed off at Tony for inventing a megalomaniacal killer robot. But in the end, these guys always manage to work it out. Because someone’s gotta save the world at the end of the day, after all. And if all goes well, sometimes they even muster up the energy to celebrate with shawarma afterward.
Not so in Captain America: Civil War. This time around, the rift between Captain America and Iron Man is far bigger, with Bucky Barnes and the Sokovia Accords pulling the former teammates further and further apart. A new Captain America: Civil War featurette, breaks down the Avenger-on-Avenger conflict, and teases a big third-act showdown that promises to break from the usual Marvel formula. Star Chris Evans, producer Kevin Feige, executive producer Nate Moore, and directors Joe and Anthony Russo all weigh in. Read More »

In a few days, audiences will greet the new Spider-Man (Tom Holland). A few years ago another reboot of the character didn’t sound particularly appealing, especially after The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but when Marvel and Sony joined forces to get the character back on track, things started looking up for the teenage hero. After seeing Spidey in action during Captain America: Civil War, now another Spider-Man reboot doesn’t sound half-bad.
When we spoke with Captain America: Civil War screenwriters, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, they discussed the experience of waiting to hear if Spider-Man would have a role in the film, and how that impacted their work. Read what they said about the new Spider-Man below.

Thankfully, the trailers and TV spots for Captain America: Civil War haven’t highlighted too much from the film’s grandest and most intricate set piece. The airport fight sequence is stuffed to the brim with characters and conflicts — but it somehow never manages to feel overstuffed. What could’ve been total superhero chaos is instead a gracefully shot, character and plot-driven showdown.
Directors Joe & Anthony Russo have said the “splash panel” sequence was by far the toughest scene to pull off. Below, learn how screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the Russo brothers, and Marvel’s Kevin Feige went about constructing the Captain America: Civil War airport set piece.

It was big news when Sony and Marvel announced they’d worked out a deal to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And the word on Captain America: Civil War is that the new Spidey, played by Tom Holland, gets off to a fantastic start. But Civil War is a movie released by Marvel Studios. Holland’s first solo outing, Spider-Man: Homecoming, is being distributed by Sony. So who really holds Spider-Man’s future in their hands?
Well, new comments by Kevin Feige suggest it’s Marvel, not Sony, which will have creative control over the character. Which should come as a huge relief if you weren’t a fan of Sony’s handling of the past two Spider-Men. Read More »
In just under three weeks, fans will begin Phase Three of Marvel’s cinematic universe with Captain America: Civil War. However, even though this new chapter is just beginning, that’s not keeping Kevin Feige from addressing what’s to come in Phase Four.

Last summer, it was announced Tom Holland had secured the role of Spider-Man. At the time, we already knew the character would appear in Captain America: Civil War, a role that was highlighted in the last trailer for the film. While it would’ve been more fun to experience the character on the big screen for the first time, it was an understandable decision on Marvel and Disney’s part to promote Spidey’s involvement.
Fans of Spider-Man will most likely be pleased with his role in Civil War, which shows the character at his youngest and nerdiest. Below, Marvel’s Kevin Feige discusses the new Spider-Man, the experience of casting Tom Holland, and collaborating with Sony.

Back in 2008, Iron Man, for some, was a surprising hit. Marvel’s first film not only exceeded box office predictions, but it also surpassed fans and general audiences’ expectations. If the comic book movie didn’t do as well as it did, then Marvel’s plans, most likely, would’ve been squashed.
Besides helping to set up the Marvel Cinematic Universe, director Jon Favreau accomplished more than just that with his film. Below, Marvel president Kevin Feige reflects on Iron Man and how it influenced the rest of the MCU.

While a lot of the early reactions to Captain America: Civil War praised the new depiction of Spider-Man, that doesn’t mean Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) isn’t every bit as entertaining as the web slinger. Marvel should have no problem getting unfamiliar audiences invested in this character.
Below, Marvel studio president Kevin Feige tells us a bit about the upcoming Black Panther standalone film, which is being helmed by Ryan Coogler, and explains why it doesn’t necessarily have to be the Black Panther origin story.

After many, many years of rumors, Marvel officially announced an Inhumans movie in 2014, set to open in 2018. At the time, the film was positioned as the final standalone before Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2 capped off Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2019. But although the idea of the Inhumans was introduced a bit earlier than we expected — they’ve been a plot point in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. since season 2 — the Inhumans movie has been delayed to 2019. And now it’s getting pushed back again.
While Marvel Studios has yet to announce a new release date for Inhumans, president Kevin Feige has admitted it’s likely to get postponed, blaming Disney’s continually shifting release schedule. Read his comments on the Inhumans delayed release date below. Read More »
