Several new photos are out from Marvel and Disney’s “Captain America: Civil War” via Empire with the new shots finally showing off the faces of several characters who hadn’t really shown up in materials for the film yet.
Amongst the new shots are a glimpse of Martin Freeman as Everett Ross, a character who in this film is part of a Joint Counter Terrorist Centre. In the comics he’s essentially the U.S. Government’s “man in Wakanda” which obviously brings him in contention with Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther. The new shots also shots of Frank Grillo’s Crossbones, Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, Emily VanCamp’s Sharon Carter and one of Boseman for the first time without his Panther helmet on.
Co-director Anthony Russo is also talking up the film a bit in an interview for the mag, confirming Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts will make an appearance in the movie and saying that the film as a whole will have a lasting impact on the entire Marvel cinematic universe going forward:
“The consequences of ‘Civil War’ will have an even more significant impact [than ‘The Winter Soldier’]. In Civil War, we’re going to change the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Psychology, and it’s an extreme shift… [There’s] a very dramatic ending that will be controversial for a lot of people.”
“Captain America: Civil War” opens May 6th.
