It isn’t just Zack Snyder’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” that has been screening in recent weeks.
Birth Movies Death have posted up some early, non-spoiler reactions to Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” that have just come in eight weeks before the international rollout of the film starting April 27th.
Unsurprisingly the reaction seems to be very positive with the sources stressing that despite all the characters in the film, this is very much about Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes:
“This isn’t Avengers 2.5, but rather Captain America 3, and it truly focuses on Cap and Bucky. I have been told that Spider-Man is great, and that the film doesn’t waste time on retelling his origin. We all get it, and the movie just moves along. I’ve been told that Black Panther is phenomenal, and that Chadwick Boseman is a major addition to the MCU.
This movie picks up the pieces of Avengers: Age of Ultron in surprising and human ways and makes us feel the true cost of Sokovia. And I’ve been told that the last half hour of the film is brutal, both physically and emotionally. One person told me that the last act plays out as an emotional horror movie because the film gives both Tony and Steve solid reasoning, and because it truly makes you feel the depths of this schism.”
The comments match quotes from the filmmakers that much of the final act of this film will be both devastating and leave a lasting impact on the events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In related news, Tom Holland has posted a video on his Instagram page which shows him at work practising some of the acrobatic moves he’s set to pull off as Spider-Man in the upcoming Marvel-approved “Spider-Man” reboot at Sony Pictures. Fans will first get to see Holland in action in ‘Civil War’ which opens in the United States on May 6th.
