Watch a Brutal Fight Between Cap and Crossbones on the ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Set
Captain America: Civil War continues to film outdoors in Atlanta, which is currently standing in for the fictional African city (and home to Black Panther), Wakanda. We brought you a first look at Frank Grillo as Crossbones, the new villain, and today you can get a look at Crossbones and Captain America in a major fight scene, including some video from the set!
In these new photos below, we can see Steve Rogers going toe-to-toe with the new and improved Brock Rumlow, in his Crossbones armor. (In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he barely survived an explosion that left him badly scarred and seemingly in need of this new exo-suit.) Perhaps underestimating his new foe, Crossbones seems to be getting the better of Cap in this scene, knocking him back so hard his helmet falls off. You can see more in the images and video below.
It’s surprising to see a company as secretive as Marvel shoot so openly in the public eye like this. They have to know that photographers, both amateur and professional, are out taking all these shots and posting them online. We’d expect an official shot to be released soon (not unlike what Suicide Squad did prior to exterior shooting) to show fans what the movie will really look like.
While we know that the film will also feature some villainous characters (like Baron Zemo and General Ross) and that Captain America will be fighting Iron Man, Crossbones has been described as the film’s main villain. He is the one who manipulates events so that Iron Man and Captain America find themselves on different sides of the same battle.
Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the 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.
Captain America: Civil War opens in theaters on May 6, 2016.
