‘Captain America: Civil War’ Begins Filming in April, Anthony Mackie Reveals Locations
Yes, we’ve all been distracted by the awesome arrival of the first ‘Ant-Man’ trailer, as well as new images and concept art from the film, but let’s not forget the other Marvel movies on the horizon—like ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ which will kick off Marvel’s Phase 3 and introduce the epic ‘Civil War’ storyline from the comics. Anthony Mackie has dropped a few details on the upcoming third installment in the ‘Captain America’ series, including when and where they’ll be filming.
The third ‘Captain America’ film seems so far off, but Anthony Mackie revealed in an interview with B96 Chicago (via Comic Book Movie) that filming begins very soon and he’s pretty excited about it:
We start shooting in April. So, it’s gonna be a lot of flying and fighting for about five months… and I’m not mad at all.
The actor, who is reprising his role as Falcon in the upcoming film, went on to reveal that directors Joe and Anthony Russo will be filming in Puerto Rico, Berlin, and Atlanta. We’re most intrigued about the Berlin location, as it was revealed not long ago that Daniel Bruhl will be playing a villain in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ (though not the main villain, which will be Frank Grillo’s Crossbones). According to reports, he’ll also likely appear as the villain in ‘Doctor Strange.’ Given Bruhl’s German heritage (he’s also part Spanish), the Berlin location seems to indicate that perhaps the speculation that Bruhl is playing Cap villain Baron Zemo could be correct.
‘Captain America: Civil War’ is one of the most anticipated upcoming films from Marvel Studios, as it introduces the major comic book arc in which Cap and Iron Man face off over superhero rights, and our beloved heroes are divided between the two sides. The film will begin the path to ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ which is going to be so huge that it has to be split into two films. For once, we’re not annoyed that a studio is splitting a franchise film into two parts.
‘Captain America: Civil War’ will hit theaters on May 6, 2016, while ‘Doctor Strange’ hits on November 4, 2016.
