My favorite Marvel franchise is Captain America, hands down, not going to budge, he’s my favorite. When a new movie comes out I am so excited to rush to the theater to see it. Here’s a tip – stay until the very end of the credits. There are not one, but two Marvel movie extras that you will need to stay for. Trust me, you will want to stay until the very end.
Not only do I enjoy watching Captain America/Steve Rodgers on screen but I love watching the Marvel ladies take charge. “Captain America: Civil War” has a great cast including some kick butt ladies.
Enjoy this video highlighting them including Scarlett Johansson “Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow”, Emily VanCamp “Sharon Carter / Agent 13”, and Elizabeth Olsen “Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch.”
Fun Facts at the Movie
On June 18, 2015, on the backlot of Pinewood Atlanta Studios, the first scenes of the historic Civil War mash-up began shooting, pitting the Avengers against each other with teams led by Captain America and Tony Stark. Filmmakers nick-named the classic battle the “Splash Panel,” because it was like a double-panel illustration in a comic book. The “Splash Panel” is one of Marvel’s most epic scenes with the most interaction ever seen in a Marvel film. The sequence was shot on IMAX cameras to give fans an unforgettable immersive experience.
In addition to the soundstages at Pinewood, filmmakers were able to utilize locations around the Atlanta area for several scenes. One such location was a big, empty gulch in downtown Atlanta where they built Lagos, Nigeria. Between the locations team, art department and set decorators, filmmakers were able to bring an authentic texture to the environment and by casting hundreds of extras it came alive as the vibrant city of Lagos.
The film also features one of the most advanced automobiles in the world, which T’Challa/Black Panther drives. The filmmakers turned to Audi, who provided the production with their newest hi-tech concept car for the shoot. The stunning car has all the newest technology that Audi has but it has never been put into production. Keep an eye out for it in the movie—you won’t see it anywhere else.
I thought the Black Panther in this movie was awesome, loved his suit and his cool cat attitude.
