Looking back at Phase 2 of the MCU, one of if not the most influential films in it was Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The destruction of S.H.I.E.L.D. has effected the MCU as a whole and it introduced us to a few new characters, while bringing other secondary characters to the forefront.
When Phase 3 kicks off in May, it will do so with the third Captain America movie, and all signs are pointing to Captain America: Civil War being just as influential and successful as the former installment in the franchise. There has not been a shortage of news about the movie ranging from trailers, photos, and interviews.
Today we have a few new looks at the film thanks to concept art and set photos from the re-shoots currently happening. We will start with the concept art courtesy of Iron Studios.
While the photo does not offer great new looks at any of the characters or reveal the look of Spider-Man, I do find it interesting which other character was left off this photo. As far as I can tell, Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) is not shown in this piece of art. As to why she is not on there? She could be away from the action at this point in the movie because of how uncontrollable her powers are. Or, maybe this gives more credibility to a recent rumor.
As mentioned before, Civil War is currently undergoing the scheduled re-shoots that all Marvel films take part in. Thanks to Daily Mail, we have a few new looks at a bruised Chris Evans, as well as knowing that Black Panther is involved thanks to Chadwick Boseman‘s presence.
It’s impossible to say what the presence of both of these actors means in terms of what they are re-shooting since both of these characters look to be playing significant roles in the story. Hopefully, it means a slightly beefed up role for the (future?) King of Wakanda.
Captain America: Civil War is scheduled to hit theaters May 6, 2016.
