Captain America: Civil War promises to have one of the biggest ensemble casts ever brought together for a Marvel movie. And now it appears that it will include yet another familiar presence, though the face may be somewhat unfamiliar. Before Josh Brolin took over the role of Thanos in the MCU, the character was played by Damion Poitier. Now, Damion Poitier has shown up on the set of Captain America: Civil War to fight alongside Falcon, Steve Rogers and Scarlet Wicth as they face down Crossbones.
It isn't known how big a role Damion Poitier has in the movie, or which Marvel comics character he may be playing. But it looks as though fans will actually get to see the actor live and in person, appearing without the aid of Motion Capture or CGI. He appears to be part of the strike force that helps eradicate Crossbones from the Slums of Wakanda. Or is he fighting for Crossbones? Damion Poitier first appeared in the MCU playing Thanos in the end credits sequence for Marvel's The Avengers.
Captain America: Civil War is continuing to shoot in Atlanta, Georgia after a short break for the Memorial Day Weekend. Damion Poitier was spotted shooting his scenes in the African Market, where he does get a close-up, so his character will be more than just a fleeting cameo. Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain. Check out the latest reveal from set:
