Coming off their appearance at New Orleans WizardWorld, we are hearing more from the Russo brothers and what is in store for us in Captain America: Civil War.
In an interview while promoting their new film studio in China, Joe and Anthony Russo discuss the Winter Soldier’s importance to Civil War, Captain America’s journey, General Ross’ return to the MCU, the presence of HYDRA and a relationship Spider-Man develops.
Check out the video below!
There is a lot to chew on in the nearly 16:30 video here, but lets break down some of it.
Anthony Russo on HYDRA’s role:
With the inclusion of Crossbones, we can guess where we will feel HYDRA’s legacy.
Joe Russo on General Thaddeus ‘Thunderbolt’ Ross’ big presence:
Some really interesting tid-bits here about Ross’s character development, specifically his political-savvy and his changing approach to dealing with powered people. We haven’t seen Ross since 2008’s The Incredible Hulk, so it is interesting to learn about the characters progression in that time.
Joe Russo on the Red Hulk rumors:
Anthony Russo on Spider-Man developing a relationship:
So this is interesting, who does Spider-Man develop this relationship with. If it follow’s the comic storyline at all, maybe he develops a relationship with Stark, sort of in the way Stark and Banner’s relationship grew. Could the “Science Bros” be getting a junior addition?
Joe Russo on the Winter Soldier’s importance to the story:
Joe Russo details Captain America’s journey:
With rumor’s swirling about Cap’s fate in Civil War, does Joe Russo hint to Steve Rogers hanging up the shield and retiring as Cap by the end. Of course, we know he will pick it back up when Thanos unleashes hell on earth in the Avengers:Infinity War saga.
Like I said, this is a lot of information! What do you think? Who does Spider-Man form a relationship with? What will happen to Cap at the end? Let us know what you think!
Are you ready to choose your side?
