We shouldn't have to worry about whether or not Captain America: Civil War is a good movie anymore. Marvel has begun test screening the first Phase 3 adventure, and reactions have been through the roof. It is said to have received the best scores out of any Marvel movie to date. Though, there is some debate on whether or not it is getting the same or better reactions than previous sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which, up until now, has had the highest scoring test screenings for a Marvel movie.
Captain America: Civil War is currently undergoing reboots as we speak. That doesn't mean anything is wrong with the movie, as Marvel and Disney have made it customary to schedule in time for shooting additional scenes and various tweaks. If the recent test screenings are any indication, not much will change, because audiences are madly in love with this grittier take on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Most of the reshoots will consist of additional photography.
BirthMoviesDeath first reported on the test screenings. They have talked to five different sources about the various advanced screenings, all of which have tested exceptionally well. Perhaps beyond even Marvel and Disney's expectations. These sources, who have seen the mostly finished movie, claim that Marvel isn't pulling any punches this time around.
The third act of Captain America: Civil War is said to be devastating, and will bring plenty of change as Phase 3 continues on into the future. While it has been rumored that some Marvel and Disney execs were worried about the sequel going down a darker path, these test screenings have proven that this is what needed to happen with the MCU. The test screenings have certainly alleviated most of those fears.
If the test screenings are accurate, Captain America: Civil War will at least be as good as Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which some consider the best Marvel movie yet. Marketing on the movie is suspected to hit overdrive in the next two months, though it isn't know if the movie will have much of a presence at this year's Super Bowl 50.
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. 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.
