It would seem that Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America: Civil War is going to be no ordinary solo film for Marvel Studios. Not only will the movie see Chris Evans' Cap and Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man face off over superhero rights, but apparently there will be a bit of globetrotting involved, as well that will see production on the movie take place in three different countries.

Anthony Mackie, who played Sam Wilson a.k.a. Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, was recently a guest on the Chicago radio station B96 with Kevin Costner to promote his new movie Black or White, and during the interview he revealed not only that he will be back for Captain America: Civil War, but that there are plans to shoot the movie later this year in Puerto Rico, Germany and here in the United States. Discussing his return to his Marvel Studios character, Mackie told the hosts, "We start shooting in April. So, it's gonna be a lot of flying and fighting for about five months." He was then asked by Costner where filming would be taking place, and the Hurt Locker star told him he would be going to Puerto Rico, Berlin, and Atlanta to make the film.

So what is there to glean about Captain America: Civil War from this information ? We can probably assume that the Atlanta filming will be all sound stage work at the Pinewood Studios down there (that's where Peyton Reed's Ant-Man filmed), but the two international locations are definitely interesting. Germany obviously has important significance for Captain America - given his involvement in World War II (not to mention that it was where he stopped Loki there in Joss Whedon's The Avengers). Puerto Rico is a bit more of a mystery at this point, but one may guess that the production is looking to have some scenes in tropical settings.

With a few months to go before the start of production in April, Captain America: Civil War has some time to start putting its pieces in place - but it likely won't be long until until we start hearing a lot more news about the project. In addition to Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., and Anthony Mackie, the film is also set to star Sebastian Stan (who will return as Bucky Barnes a.k.a. The Winter Soldier), Chadwick Boseman (who will be making his debut as the Marvel Cinematic Universe's version of Black Panther) and Daniel Bruhl, who will reportedly be playing a villain in the movie. It's likely that filming will stretch from spring to summer, and then the rest of 2015 will be used for post-production to get the feature finished. Marvel Studios has the film set to come out on May 6, 2016.
