Captain America: Civil War is continuing to shoot in Atlanta, where Marvel's Tony Stark and Steve Rogers are going to come to blows over the Superhero Registration Act. The latest set photos hint that Cap may have the upper hand. Star Robert Downey Jr. is seen wearing his signature Marvel Under Armour, and sporting a face that has been beaten and bloodied. Is Rogers the one responsible?
Like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will see two of DC Comics biggest superheroes battling in the streets of Metropolis, Captain America: Civil War will give us an epic brawl between Iron Man and Captain America. Though, we have yet to see this tussle even hinted at in any leaked set photos. Is this our first evidence of their clash? Or has Tony run into other unfortunate problems that have found him on the opposite end of a good ol' fashion butt kicking?
Robert Downey Jr. is seen here posing with fans, and it's all the proof we need that Tony Stark is going to tempt fate, or possibly anger the wrong person with one of his witty quips. Whoever is involved, it's safe to say that this week's shoot will be devoted to this action scene. Heck, it might even include Tom Holland as Spider-Man, who is rumored to be lingering around the Atlanta set.
Directed by Anthony & Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off. Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) leads a 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. Starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Chadwick Boseman, Emily VanCamp, Daniel Brühl, Frank Grillo, William Hurt, and Martin Freeman, Captain America: Civil War is set for release on May 6, 2016. While it's not a true picture from the set, take a look at Robert Downey Jr.'s broken face. It's a good indication as to where this franchise sequel is heading.
