‘Captain America: Civil War’: Fan-Made Opening Credits Have the Marvel Look

     October 26, 2015


Because Marvel has been pretty light on Captain America: Civil War previews — unless you were lucky enough to be at the D23 Expo — fans have been using their artistic powers to create their own faux marketing materials. The latest headline-making work to come from one of these creative mavens might be the best one yet: an interpretation of what the opening credits sequence might look like on the superhero face-off film.

Saruhan Saral, who goes by mightyraccoon! on YouTube, released this fan-made video and it’s already begun blowing up the blogosphere. Saral, whose “About” page states he’s a huge superhero fan/graphic design student in Istanbul, made all the visuals and animation, while Bryan Arata contributed the soundtrack and YouTuber Shadow Rabbit did the logo.

Captain America: Civil War is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, who also helmed The Winter Soldier, and Saral’s credits makes a nod to the graphics used for the latter’s closing credits. Watch it below:

After highlighting the heroes of the hour — Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) — the sequence puts a literal spotlight on The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). The elusive Bucky Barnes was last scene trapped by an unknown mechanism in the Ant-Man post-credits scene, which was actually taken from Civil War.

From there, we see Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), two characters who reportedly battle one another; a shrunken Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) positioned on Falcon’s (Anthony Mackie) wing; new Avengers Vision (Paul Bettany) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen); War Machine (Don Cheadle) and villain Crossbones (Frank Grillo); and Agent 13 (Emily VanCamp) and the return of General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross (William Hurt). Also rendered are Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland), the two making their debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

We still have a little ways to go before the Civil War commence on May 6, 2016, but Saral’s video isn’t too far off from something Marvel would use in the finished film.
