If you’re a Marvel fan, you’ve probably noticed a slew of Captain America: Civil War news coming in the last couple days after the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes graced the cover of the latest EW issue. We got our first real introduction to Chadwick Boseman‘s Black Panther, aka T’Challa, the young ruler of Wakanda and the newest superhero on the scene caught between Cap and Iron Man’s brutal battle. We learned more about Tony’s political leanings and the conflicting idealogies that divide the former friends and allies. We heard about how Black Widow’s caught in the middle, and even got some behind-the-scenes info on the film’s major fight scene.
Now, the magazine has released the entire set of new Civil War images online, giving a close-up look at the costumes, conflicts and feats of superhuman strength afoot in Marvel’s latest, and a few more quotes from the cast.
Speaking with the outlet, Chris Evans addressed the dynamic between Cap and Black Panther,
“I think they’re both very selfless people…They want the right thing, no one’s irrational, no one has an inflated ego…I think outside of the suits we’d be friends, Steve and T’Challa.”
By contrast, Evans highlighted the differences between Steve and Tony, despite the friendship the two share.
“They do respect each other but they’re just very different men…You do have those moments of connection, like at the end of Age of Ultron when I say, ‘I will miss you, Tony.’ There is a love and respect there … and that’s what makes this so tragic.”
Evans also told the outlet he’d be down to return the favor and pop up in an Iron Man movie,”I’d be happy to be in an Iron Man movie. We’ve been in so many movies together, the titles are almost, at this point, inconsequential. We all win!”.
Of course, we don’t know if let alone when another Iron Man solo might be in the works. Marvel’s laid out a long schedule of films that is decidedly lacking an Iron Man 4, and then there’s the matter of limited actor appearances, but as we saw with Ant-Man and The Wasp, schedules can be revised, and contracts can always be re-negotiated. But that’s getting way, way ahead of ourselves.
For now, we can look forward to kicking off Phase 3 when Captain America: Civil War arrives in theaters May 6th, 2016. Until then, tide yourself over with the new images below.
