Captain America: Civil War will turn the Marvel Cinematic Universe on its head, plaing with the character dynamics of Marvels lead Avengers Tony Stark and Steve Rogers. The aftermath of the movie will fundamentall change the MCU as it explores its third phase, with new characters such as Black Panther and Doctor Strange having to choose between freedom or security in a world on the verge of intergalactic war with phase 3's climatic two-parter Avengers: Infinity Wars.

Speaking recently to Empire Robert Downey Jr. talked about what will become his sixth outing as MCU's eccentric billionaire Avenger, Iron Man and the characters villainous role in Captain America: Civil War...

"They said to me, 'If we have you, we can do this, or Cap 3 has to be something else. It's nice to feel needed. And at this point it's about helping each other, too. I look at it as a competition and I go, 'Wow, maybe if these two franchises teamed up and I can take even a lesser position, with people I like and directors I respect, maybe we can keep things bumping along."

Why Tony Stark created Ultron will be key to his position in Captain America: Civil War!

"It's natural to change your views. The main thing to me is, what sort of incident could occur, and what sort of framework could we find Tony in? The clues about where we might find him next are in [Avengers: Age of] Ultron. But what would it take for Tony to completely turn around everything he's stood for? Joss brings this up all the time. It's kind of weird that these guys would have all these throw downs all over planet Earth and yet when the movie's over, nobody minds. What would the American government do if this were real? Wouldn't it be interesting to see Tony doing something you wouldn't imagine?"

"The biggest question is, for Chris and for Cap, how do we bring Cap to a place where people go, 'Man, I never thought I would see such a vast change in Steve.' After you see Snowpiercer, you're like, 'I want to see a little bit of that guy.'"

Chris Evans' co-star from Captain America: The Winter Soldier Anthony Mackie will also return for the eagerly anticipated sequel as Sam Wilson AKA Falcon. Recently the American actor spoke to IAR about his character, the movie and his co-stars, including the recently cast Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa AKA the Black Panther...

“When we finished Cap 2 I asked and begged to come back, literally. So I found out when everybody else did. I got a call from my manager. He said, "They're going to put you in Cap 3." It’s always a surprise with Marvel, man. If you are not one of those like Thor or Cap, then you have no idea. The only person that had an early version of the script and read the outline was Chris Evans. I talk to him all the time because we are good friends and he would always say, "Man, the movie is going to be good." I'm like, am I in it? He would say, "It's going to be a big movie." So he would never tell me if I was in it or not. Even he keeps secrets. It's a dirty business."
"I have [read the Civil War comic book]. You know, I'm not sure how close it will stay because I haven't read anything. I just found out literally this week. I haven't gotten a script or an outline. I don't know how much of it I'm going to be in. I have no idea how they are going to use me. But you know, the Civil War comic book, there is so much there. I don't know how they are going to condense it and make it into a movie because it is a civil war. It's epic! Look at the way it's going now when they announced Phase 3, with Black Panther and Dr. Strange coming into the fold. I have no idea what they are going to do with this movie. I just know that Cap 3 has to be better than Cap 2. So I know Cap 3 is going to be mind-blowing."
Anthony Mackie soared (sorry) to stardom in Captain America: The Winter Soldier!
"When we were shooting Cap 2 I would always have conversations with them about Black Panther because I wanted to stress the importance of that character to the movie going populous. I couldn't be happier that they cast Chadwick (Boseman). He's a remarkable young man. I've known him off and on for over ten years now. I first met him in '98 at Howard (University) down in D.C. I've only known him from a far. But the more I've heard of him from people who are in his inner circle, the more I've been proud of the fact that someone who did the work, and did their due diligence, is being rewarded at a rate like this in his career because he truly deserves it." 

"Listen; you would never meet anybody that doesn't want to hangout with Tony Stark. Tony's the man! I have no idea. I have no idea how they are going to use me. I have no idea how they are going to introduce all of those characters."

"It's funny, I've met Robert a few times and I didn't know what to expect. I didn't know what he would be like because he is such a mega star and has had so many phases of his career. I have to say, he couldn't be more of a down to Earth, fun to be around, cool, smart person. Every time you talk to him, it's just mind-blowing the stories he tells, and the way he looks at this Iron Man phenomenon and how it's helping him in the third phase of his career to open doors to do projects that he has wanted to do forever but couldn't. The great thing about these Marvel movies is that everybody in the world sees them. Not just everybody in California and New York, everybody in the world! That’s something that an actor can only dream of having that opportunity."
"I want my bird, man. I want my bird! The thing is, you know I've been emailing with people over at Marvel. I've putting it out there in the ethos that I'm going to have a new and improved costume and come out all flashy in spandex. So I'm hoping that I get a new and improved costume. That's my whole thing. I've just been saying it, hoping that they'll read it and say, "Alright, we have to give Anthony a new costume." Please, dress me up in spandex!"
