Origin movies are the bread and butter of the superhero movie genre. But while every superhero needs one, not all audiences want one. It may be because we’ve seen Peter Parker get bitten by a spider twice in the past two decades. Or because we’ve seen Bruce Wayne’s parents shot in an alley about 80 million times — even in movies that aren’t even about his origin. It’s no surprise that a few superhero franchises are foregoing the origin story altogether — Spider-Man: Homecoming leapt right past it, Guardians of the Galaxy throws you right into the fray.
But there’s no avoiding an origin story for Captain Marvel. Marvel’s first solo female superhero is relatively unknown to mass audiences, and thus needs a proper introduction, including a classic origin movie. But the Captain Marvel origin story may be a little different than what you would expect.

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 case you haven’t heard, /Film was on the set of Captain America: Civil War, witnessing the beginning of the fight between superheroes. We ran the gamut of interviews with stars like Chris Evans, directors Anthony & Joe Russo and more. And in our interview with Marvel producer Nate Moore, the question arose of whether or not we might see Marvel’s TV heroes like Daredevil or Jessica Jones end up on the big screen.
Even though we’ve heard that there’s not much communication or collaboration between Marvel’s film and television divisions, especially with regards to Agents of SHIELD and Inhumans plans, Moore was not opposed to the idea at all. But making something like that happen could prove to be complicated. Find out what he had to say after the jump. Read More »
On June 10th, 2015, in the sweltering heat of Atlanta, Georgia, I found myself on the set of Captain America: Civil War, the third installment in the patriotic superhero’s Marvel Studios franchise that began with Captain America: The First Avenger and continued with Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
In the middle of nowhere lies Pinewood Studios, and this is where we spent half the day conducting interviews with stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Anthony Mackie, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen and franchise newcomer Chadwick Boseman, not to mention writers Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, executive producer Nate Moore and directors Anthony & Joe Russo. All of those will be coming to you today and tomorrow, but first we want to talk about what we saw on set, because that’s what you’re going to see in theaters in May.
Outside on the studio lot, three massive green screen walls have been constructed to surround a set made to look like an airport tarmac. The only real objects on the set, besides the Marvel heroes who would be fighting shortly, is a fuel tank (that may end up exploding at some point) and some vehicles that say “Flughafen Leipzig-Halle,” which dictates that this is the Leipzig-Halle Airport in Schkeuditz, Germany. And this is where the Civil War begins. We are about the witness the beginning of the first fight between Team Captain America and Team Iron Man
After the jump, find out what we observed on the set of Captain America: Civil War, and how Marvel dealt with plenty of questions about Spider-Man entering the Marvel cinematic universe. All this and more can be found in our Captain America Civil War set report. And in case you haven’t realized it already, beware of spoilers after the jump! Read More »
