We’re a little under six months from the highly-anticipated Captain America: Civil War hitting theaters and just recently got our first look at the film. The film’s first trailer definitely played it straight and kept the humor to a minimal. Could this be Marvel Studios most serious release to date? Co-director Anthony Russo believes so and commented on the subject while speaking at Comic-Con Experience in Brazil.
It can’t be all serious though. With a tone such as the one described by Russo, it’s going to need a bit of comic relief to even things out. According to the co-director, that aspect will be provided by some of the characters that pop up later in the conflict.
The co-director then confirmed that “characters like Spider-Man and Ant-Man enter the story a little later” will be the ones to provide said comic relief. Of course someone is going to complain, but if this indeed Marvel’s most serious (coming from the guys that made The Winter Soldier…I believe it) project to date, it’s definitely going to need some humor. Who better to provide it than those two characters? Let us know your thoughts on the matter in the comments section below.
