First High-Res Look At Big Spoiler In Captain America: Civil War

Marvel released a first look at Giant Man in Captain America: Civil War, played by Paul Rudd.

“We played with a number of different ideas in terms of what it would be, but none of them had the potency of that Giant-Man beat there,” director Anthony Russo told USA Today. “He’s just really impressed with Captain America, he just wants to deliver and he figures out a way to deliver where he might actually tear himself in half but he’s willing to do it and it works. It just lined up on a lot of different levels.”

Joe Russo also revealed the special effects were created using a green screen with a combination of Paul Rudd’s action on set with a motion-capture performer who would move around slowly as a giant would, stomping on things and tearing a wing off an airplane, and then they mapped it onto a 50-foot-tall man in post-production.

“The sequence that almost ate the movie,” Anthony Russo added. “I would say at least 40% of our entire post time was on that sequence, just because it was so complicated.”

“Captain America: Civil War” is now in theaters directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.

Synopsis:

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.

Russo Brothers Say Doctor Strange Is On Team Cap

While Doctor Strange will not be appearing in Captain America: Civil War (at least that we know of; a post-credit scene seems likely), it’s learned the Sorcerer Supreme is on the side of Team Cap.

Russo Brothers Share Little Surprise For Captain America: Civil War

Well, that “little surprise” isn’t Spider-Man, but our second guess was pretty close.

The Russo Brothers went live on Facebook a few moments ago to share “Chris Evans'” reaction to watching Captain America: Civil War for the first time.

Watch the video below.

Russo Brothers Tease Spider-Man(?) Surprise

 
Click For High-Res Spider-Man Image
 

Anthony and Joe Russo have recently launched their Facebook page.

A couple days ago saw the pair reveal a look at a new Captain America: Civil War scene, and now they tease something for later today.

“We’ll be live with a little friend of ours tomorrow at 2:30pm PST,” the Russo’s posted last night on Facebook (meaning 5:30pm ET Friday, March 18th).

It’s our guess the “little friend” may be new Spider-Man Tom Holland, as it’s also our guess Marvel will be using Spider-Man to further promote Captain America: Civil War.

The Russo’s did just talk in length about Spider-Man and mentioned that the kinks are now out of the Sony and Marvel deal, and that actually they would have liked to use Spider-Man previous to the reveal in the trailer.

Here’s the blurb:

Also I think it was a little bit of a correction because it was a very complicated deal that Sony had to work out with Marvel Studios and Disney in order to make that work. We were very quiet about Spider-Man’s involvement in the movie for much longer than we would have been. We were artificially silent on the character because it was such a sensitive business deal still being worked out even while we were shooting. We went through a very thorough casting process, we tested Tom Holland vigorously with Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr,, we screen tested him along with several other actors, it was a very intense part of making Captain America: Civil War because he was an important part of the movie to us. Finally it’s all secure and we’re at a place where we can present him even in just a small taste. 

If we’re wrong about Spider-Man, our next guess is Ant-Man?

Update: One of our guesses was close. Watch the video:

Russo Brothers Talk Avengers: Infinity War Characters & Spider-Man

We just heard from Joe and Anthony Russo in regards to Spider-Man in the Captain America: Civil, now check out what the directors have to say about The Avengers: Infinity War. Speaking with Forbes, the Russo’s menton Thanos, new characters and Spider-Man.

On whether Disney/Marvel requires certain characters for Avengers: Infinity War:

JR: Maybe there’s a character requirement but with things like Avengers: Infinity War that’s obvious because it’s a culmination of all the films in the phase that have preceded it. You know that Thanos is going to be in there and the majority of the Marvel Universe is going to appear in the movies. Those are givens, but after that we can construct any narrative we want around it and what we think is the best execution of the story.

On new characters appearing in Avengers: Infinity War:

AR: There are certain characters that you don’t know.

JR: New characters that are going to appear in Avengers: Infinity War. It’s a big sprawling ambitious movie, it’s about as ambitious as movies get and it should be, and the title alone indicates that there will be an incredible scape and scope to it.

On where they are at in regards to Avengers: Infinity War:

AR: It is intended to be the entire culmination of the Marvel cinematic universe and, in many ways, the end to that part of it. But we don’t even have the first draft in on that script yet; we’re still in the outline phase. It’s hard not to talk about it too specifically now only because of spoilers but also because we’re still figuring it out.

AR: We have an idea but let’s see if that evolves over the next couple of months.

Will Spider-Man appear in Avengers: Infinity War:

JR: To be determined. We’ll see.

“The Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1” has a May 4, 2018 release, with Part 2 on May 3, 2019.
