While the events of Avengers: Age Of Ultron will play an integral part in Captain America: Civil War, it won’t be the only incident that sparks the conflict between these heroes. While speaking with Hitfix, screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely spoke about another event that will occur in the film and how it plays things. McFeely commented on the matter and the events that caused the comic book event of the same name.
There will be a Stamford Incident but it’s not Stamford. We’ll have an incident that will force the governments of the world to go, ‘Wait a second. Let’s talk about the laundry list of things that we’re not happy about. Let’s finally do something about that.’ It’s more about oversight than unmasking or outing anyone.
Producer Nate Moore additionally commented on the above mentioned situation and their connection to Frank Grillo’s Brock Rumlow aka ‘Crossbones’. We last saw the character in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and it sounds like he’s not too happy after the events of that film.
Crossbones is interesting. Again, a character who we all love and an actor we all love. We felt like there was a really good way for him to, once again, kind of fan the conflict that was already brewing. Here’s a guy who is a free radical. Hydra has kind of gone under. He’s sort of doing his own thing now.
What happens when he pops back up? He is, I think, probably more unhinged than he was in the last film. He is definitely serving his own agenda. He’s not afraid to kill people along the way. So he becomes almost the spark point for what happens with the rest of the film.
I’m definitely looking forward to seeing exactly what these events are and more of Frank Grillo in the film. Here’s hoping we get a little bit of him in tomorrow’s trailer. Let us know what you think about the above in the comments section below.
“Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
