I still can't believe we've gotten to this point in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I remember back in 2008 when Nick Fury first showed up at the end of IRON MAN. I dreamed of Marvel one day adapting the CIVIL WAR comic book to the big screen -- though I knew the difficulties they would face. They wouldn't be able to just throw in a film and say "go."
No, they'd have to spend years releasing a metric ton of films that work to build the character dynamics. And so they've done. It's been eight years in the making, but in the past dozen or so films, the studio has done a great job at setting up the ideological differences between their two big hitters: Iron Man and Captain America. And now we get to see it all blow up on the big screen in exactly one month's time!
"I really do have a strangely serious investment in these films," actor Robert Downey Jr told ABCNews. "[CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR is] not gonna be entirely predictable. Characters are going to make choices that surprise you."
If you're like me, and you're beyond excited to see what those choices may be, you are consuming every little bit of content you possibly can. While the video below from ABCNews is a bit light and fluffy on content, it does show some cool behind-the-scenes stuff that makes it worth the watch.
Check it out below!
“CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR picks up where “Avengers: Age of Ultron” left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain."
