Marvel's Captain America: Civil War is now the movie to beat this year at the box office, both domestically and worldwide. This superhero adventure has the highest domestic total so far this year with $391 million, and $1.1 billion worldwide. While we still don't know when the Blu-ray and DVD will be released, as this blockbuster winds down its theatrical run, some new animatic videos have been uncovered, featuring crude versions of deleted scenes that weren't included in the Civil War theatrical cut. Be warned, if you haven't seen Captain America: Civil War quite yet, there will be SPOILERS below, so read on at your own risk.
These videos come from artist Darrin Denlinger's YouTube page, the first of which shows a scene that wasn't included during the massive airport fight sequence. This scene happens just after Cap (Chris Evans) uses Ant-Man's (Paul Rudd) shrinking technology to throw a huge truck at his opponents. Just after Ant-Man takes off, Cap and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) engage in a brief fight that wasn't shown in the final version.
The second animatic video features an alternate version of Cap's encounter with Bucky (Sebastian Stan) in his apartment, along with his action-packed, daring escape, while the final video reveals an Avenger almost made a much earlier debut in this movie. The third animatic shows a different version of the scene where Bucky is being transported after his capture, with none other than Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) watching over him in the truck. We don't know for sure if any of these scenes were actually shot for this Marvel movie, or if they were discarded in the pre-production process before filming began.
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.
Captain America: Civil War directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo will return to direct the massive Avengers: Infinity War movies, which are reportedly shooting back-to-back starting this coming November. Right around the same time filming will begin, Marvel will release Doctor Strange, in theaters November 4. While we wait for more details on the ever-evolving Marvel Cinematic Universe, take a look at these new deleted scenes from Captain America: Civil War, in animatic form.
