One of the two Captain America: Civil War directors Anthony Russo has attended Comic-Con Experience in São Paulo, Brazil and offered some tidbits on Spider-Man’s costume and on whether Marvel’s Defenders could fit in the Avengers: Infinity War movies. That’s what I brought you yesterday. Now, there’s some more fresh and hot stuff from the director! And all of it is about CIVIL WAR!
Here’s how he described the tone of the May 6, 2016 release (via Comic Book Movie):
“The film definitely has a more serious tone I think than any other Marvel [Studios] movie yet. And that’s kind of natural to the process because you’re really gonna turn these heroes, who have been friends and partners, against one another.”
Anthony Russo went on to add that they had to ‘think very hard’ about a situation complex enough to put such ‘smart’ and ‘likeable’ characters. They had to look for ‘a serious issue’ to make these superheroes fight amongst themselves.
But not all characters in Civil War have the ‘same investment’ in the clash according to the Russo. The director stated that there are some characters that enter into the story ‘a little later’. These Civil War characters don’t have to deal with as much ‘darkness’ as the others. That might make them ‘a little lighter and more fun’ in the movie. So, who these guys are? You can get your answer from what Anthony added:
“I think the movie has a healthy balance between very serious, interesting and very surprising storytelling, and sort of light, fun wits and humor… characters like Spider-Man and Ant-Man enter the story a little later.”
