‘Captain America: Civil War’ Wraps Principal Production
And that’s a wrap…for now. Captain America: Civil War has completed principal filming, and now the post-production process (and our long march to next May) begins. The film shot primarily at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, with additional filming taking place in Berlin (hello, Baron Zemo) and Puerto Rico. The news was delivered by Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito, while additional, supplementary filming will likely occur sometime over the next few months or so.
D’Esposito posted the announcement on Twitter, congratulating the cast and crew, as well as directors Joe and Anthony Russo, who previously directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier:
Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen are returning to reprise their Avengers roles, along with Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man, Anthony Mackie’s Falcon, Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes, Emily VanCamp’s Agent 13 and Frank Grillo’s Crossbones. Daniel Bruhl co-stars as the villainous Baron Zemo, with Chadwick Boseman and Tom Holland making their MCU debuts as Black Panther and Spider-Man, respectively.
Here’s Marvel’s official description:
Captain America: Civil War plot 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.
Recent rumors indicate that the “international incident” involves a failed attempt to prevent Crossbones from killing hundreds of innocent people, while set photos have shown off an unlikely alliance between Bucky and Falcon.
Captain America: Civil War also features Martin Freeman in a mysterious, undisclosed role and hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
