We have purposefully been quiet concerning Captain America: Civil War, choosing not to cover every single slither, rumor and on-location snap during production. We have done this as a conscious effort to retain some mystery of what looks set to be one of the top three comic book movies of 2016, whose marketing campaign (of which we will follow) is expected to begin any moment. Heralded my many as Avengers 2.5, Civil War features many, but not all, of Marvel Studios' current roster of big screen superheroes facing off against each in the big screen adaptation of Mark Millars seminal Civil War comic book story from the 90's.
Following on from X-Men: Apocalypse and Independence Day Resurgence, Captain America: Civil War finished principal photography this weekend after a gruelling four month shoot which began in late April of this year, with cast enjoying their wrap party at the newly opened Imperii Bar in Leipzig, Germany. Directed by the Russo Brothers and starring half of Hollywood, Civil War stands alongside competitors Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool as prospectively one of the best comic book movies ever adapted for the big screen.
