Yesterday, we showed you new photos from Marvel's highly-anticipated Captain America: Civil War, along with a slew of details from the first Phase Three movie, arriving in theaters May 6, 2016. Those photos all featured members of Team Captain America. Today, Entertainment Weekly has a new photo with Robert Downey Jr., whose beloved character Tony Stark is seen meeting with Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) without their superhero gear. The site also has a detailed description of a new scene, while Robert Downey Jr. offers his thoughts on where Tony Stark stands in this movie.
The site's report reveals that, during their visit to the set, Tony Stark is seen with a black eye, with blood splattered on his silk shirt and tie. Robert Downey Jr. did reveal that Captain America himself isn't responsible for this beating, but he wouldn't divulge who got the best of Stark, at a time when apparently his Iron Man suit wasn't handy. While Iron Man isn't exactly the villain in Captain America: Civil War, he is described as the "antagonist". Here's what the actor had to say, revealing he actually agrees with what Tony Stark is doing.
"It didn't bother me at all. I've always thought of it in some ways that Tony is the antagonist to himself in his own story, so this isn't a problem. This guy understands problems 'cause he is a problem. And he tends to create problems. I'm not having to patter around what I think the worldview is. I wholeheartedly agree with what he does in this. Which is, by the way, more than I could say for some of the other movies."
One of the few characters in Captain America: Civil War that hasn't been revealed yet is Martin Freeman's mysterious role. Entertainment Weekly also has a detailed description of a scene, which appears to take place before the Civil War truly breaks out, where Martin Freeman's mystery role is described as a "government attache." Take a look at this scene description below.
"An elevator opens in the op-center, and Steve Rogers and his friend Sam Wilson, a.k.a. Anthony Mackie's Falcon, walk out - with a silent T'Challa (the public identity of Chadwick Boseman's Black Panther) walking in front of them alongside the government attaché played by Martin Freeman. Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow is with them, and she's not saying anything either. Something bad has gone down. Cap and Falcon were involved. It did not go well. They have handed over their vibranium shield and flying apparatus before being allowed access to this place. The pair look like they're being sent to the principal's office. 'You guys want to take a seat?' Widow says. 'And try not to break anything while we fix this.' Stark, who hasn't yet had his beat-down, is on his cell phone with U.S. Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) as Cap and Falcon step into the nerve center of the intelligence office. 'No, Romania was not sanctioned by the accords ... Col. Rhodes is supervising clean-up ... Yes, there will be consequences ...' Stark looks irritated, tired. 'Obviously, you can quote me on that. I just said it.' He hangs up, and beholds his Avengers. 'Consequences?' Cap says. 'Secretary Ross wanted you both prosecuted,' Iron Man answers. 'I had to give him something.' 'I'm not getting that shield back, am I?' Cap says. Black Widow walks ahead, joining Stark. 'Technically it belongs to the government. Wings, too,' she says. 'That's cold,' Falcon says. Stark spins on his heel as the two walk away with T'Challa. He flashes a tight, unpleasant smile. 'Warmer than jail!' he says."
Robert Downey Jr. also described Tony's relationship with Steve as the lead singers of a group who have been together for too long. Backing up Tony in this movie will be War Machine (Don Cheadle), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Vision (Paul Bettany), while Team Cap includes Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), The Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Sharon Carter/Agent 13 (Emily VanCamp) and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd). Take a look at the photo below, and stay tuned for more on Captain America: Civil War, in theaters May 6, 2016.
