One of the most highly anticipated movies of 2016 is the upcoming superhero ensemble piece Captain America: Civil War. After building a universe and lineup of heroes over the course of eight years, we’ll now be able to see all the superpowered individuals duke it out amongst themselves. Hype for Civil War only increased with both trailers for the film, which gave us just enough of a tease, without giving away too much. But now the question is: how good will the film actually be?
Much of the conflict in Civil War revolves around Captain America (Chris Evans) and his relationship and loyalty to his former best friend Bucky aka The Winter Soldier, played by Sebastian Stan. Stan recently spoke out regarding his reaction to seeing Civil War for the first time, saying:
I sat there and basically there was a bowl of candy and fruit and gum in front of me and then there were sparkling waters and I basically sat on the edge of my couch the entire time and ate through the entire bowl of candy. I was overly stimulated with this movie, which I’m so proud to be in because everyone is fucking awesome in it. Everyone is fucking fantastic. I walked out of it speechless, and I worked on the movie and I was there! I walked out of there and I had back pain from leaning.
Well, that’s a glowing review to say the least. Bowl of candy aside, Sebastian Stan’s comment seems to tell us a something about the upcoming third chapter of the Captain America franchise.
Not that is is a huge surprise, but it seems like we’re going to be getting a ton of action during Civil War. We all knew that there was going to be a giant super powered battle at the climax of the film, including the brand spankin new Spider-Man, but now it seems that the fighting and battles will be pretty consistent throughout. In order to keep Sebastian Stan, who worked on the project, at the edge of his seat then things must be pretty wild. Considering that Captain America: Civil War has a pretty long runtime of 2 hours and 26 minutes, something big has to happen in order to keep the audience’s attention for so long.
Of course, given how epic the newest trailer is, I doubt I’ll be bored at anytime throughout the new film. Check it out.
Just like Sebastian Stan said, this movie looks pretty action-packed. So get your bowl of candy and prepare for some minor back problems, because the Civil War is going to be intense.
