Directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo claim to have just screened Captain America: Civil War for leading man Chris Evans for the very first time. And they have documented his reaction in a new video posted exclusively to their Facebook page. But something strange is afoot. As the actor gives his short and sweet review of the movie, he keeps a Captain America mask covering his face. Here's what he has to say about the movie.
"Wow! Guys, I mean, what a movie. It is incredible. You've done it again. I just can't believe it. The story's amazing. The characters are compelling. The action is unlike anything I've ever seen. I loved it. I absolutely loved it."
Now, it doesn't take the world's greatest super sleuth to see that it's not Chris Evans under that mask. At first, it almost sounds like Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt. But there is no mistaking that chin, and those ears. And then comes the dead give away. The Russo Bros. ask 'Chris Evans' what his favorite part of the movie is. And without missing a beat, the masked man boldly states the following.
And there you have it. The gig is up. For whatever reason, Paul Rudd is posing as Chris Evans. What isn't clear is whether or not either star has actually seen the movie, or where Chris Evans may be hiding. We do know that the movie has screened for some of the cast. And apparently it's gone over like gangbusters. Many believe this is the best Marvel movie ever made. Including Sebastian Stan, who plays The Winter Soldier (aka Bucky Barnes). He recently revealed that the movie left him floored. He states.
"I sat there and basically there was a bowl of candy and fruit and gum in front of me and then there were sparkling waters and I basically sat on the edge of my couch the entire time and ate through the entire bowl of candy. I was overly stimulated with this movie, which I'm so proud to be in because everyone is fucking awesome in it. Everyone is fucking fantastic. I walked out of it speechless, and I worked on the movie and I was there! I walked out of there and I had back pain from leaning."
Marvel's Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps-one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
Team Iron Man includes Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Vision (Paul Bettany), War Machine (Don Cheadle) and the new character T'challa (Chadwick Boseman), who will make his debut in this movie before starring in Black Panther, set for release on February 16, 2018. Team Cap includes Captain America (Chris Evans), The Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). Marvel's Captain America: Civil War also stars Frank Grillo as Crossbones, William Hurt as Thaddeus Ross and Daniel Brühl as the villainous Baron Zemo.
Anthony Russo & Joe Russo are directing with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D'Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee are the executive producers. The screenplay is by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel's Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016.
