So far, test audiences have gone wild for Captain America: Civil War. Some have even called it the best Marvel movie yet. And ratings have been through the roof. So while we might otherwise look at any given actor's review of his own movie as suspect, we're inclined to believe Sebastian Stan this time out. He stars as Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Soldier, in this third Steve Rogers outing. And he has nothing but praise and curse words to shower down upon his latest work of blockbuster art.
Captain America: Civil War is easily one of the most anticipated movies of 2016. And the superhero movie is bringing back nearly every Marvel superhero ever introduced on the big screen along with a few new additions. It is shaping up to be the ensemble to end all ensembles. And the hype surrounding the movie has reached a fever pitch. This past week saw the release of the second full-length trailer, which introduced the word to Tom Holland as the new Spider-Man. And apparently, the movie will live up to everything we've seen and heard thus far. Here's what Sebastian Stan thought of the movie after seeing it for the first time, thanks to Collider.
"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) and The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan).
