Anthony Mackie Talks ‘Captain America: Civil War’; Calls The Film A ‘Suspense Thriller’

We’re only a few short months away from the highly-anticipated Captain America: Civil War kicking off Marvel’s Phase Three. Marvel has a tendency to draw from different genre films for their releases and it seems that this film will be no different when it comes to that aspect according to Anthony Mackie. While speaking with Empire, the actor who plays Sam Wilson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, told the site that the film is “more of a true suspense thriller.” 

How will the Marvel Studios release go about achieving balancing it’s huge cast and action sequences while also establishing a grounded storyline that audiences will believe? Mackie commented on the matter.

“The build-up to the fight is what makes it so interesting because there are so many different factions of who’s right and who’s wrong and who supports who. Once we get all of that out the way, then it becomes more action-packed and more of us kicking each others’ ass. … If it’s a civil war, you have to establish why there’s a war. You can’t just start fighting and expect people to appreciate it.”

With The Russos in charge of the film, there should definitely be no worry that they will be trading action for story as we saw them find the perfect balance in The Winter Solder.  Definitely excited to see what they bring to the table with this next one and Mackie’s comments about it being a ‘suspense thriller’ add to that. Let us know what you think about Mackie’s comments in the section below.
