Yesterday, Marvel released a set of posters focusing on Team Cap – Captain America (Chris Evans), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd). Along with those posters, various outlets began posting interviews from their set visits with the actors on Team Cap. Now today, the focus has shifted to Team Iron Man. We’ve already seen a group of posters hit for Iron Man’s team – Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), War Machine (Don Cheadle), and Vision (Paul Bettany) – with the obvious exclusion of Spider-Man (Tom Holland). And now we have an interview with Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., courtesy of the folks over at USA Today.
When it comes to Captain America: Civil War, many fans have feared that the film would seem more like an Avengers film rather than a Cap film. This, of course, is understandable given the inclusion of various Avengers, however, the film is still very much a Captain America film – something the film’s star, Chris Evans has gone on to assure fans recently. Still, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t also feel a bit like an Iron Man 4 movie to co-star Downey Jr.
“In a way it’s Cap 3 but for me it’s like my little Iron Man 4 and then it’s back to the thing we all recognize. Everything pulls over to the side of the road when the thunder of an Avengers thing comes through because that’s how it is until it changes. If it changes.”
And for those fans fearing that we’d see Tony Stark go full villain in Captain America: Civil War? Downey Jr. insists that isn’t the case. In fact, he goes on to say that in order for that to happen, it would have to be for his “swan song”.
“If we’re going to go there, then we’ve got to save it for my swan song. I would still like to keep a general audience and mildly be in their favor somehow.”
With Marvel releasing new posters for each side, and tickets set to go on sale this Thursday, it’s beginning to look as though we’ll get a new trailer within the next day or two, so be sure to stay tuned! As always, you can follow along for all things Captain America: Civil War by heading over here, and don’t forget to catch the film when it hit movie theaters on May 6th!
