Captain America: Civil War

Hello Friends,

The wait is over, the cold winter seasons are over… as Steve Rogers graces the silver-screens once more in Marvel’s third installment in Captain America: Civil War.  Spoiler Alert!! Captain America Live in Lagos popular market Ojuelegba.  YES. I. SAID. IT

Make no mistake people, if you were disappointed by Avengers: Age of Ultron I have got good news for you. Marvel’s big summer release Captain America: Civil War is the Avengers movie you were hoping to get last year, and that’s a fact.. YES. I. SAID. IT

After viewing the title in an Executive screening last week, I can confirm that Captain America Civil War will hit the 1 Billion GBO forecast as it has everything from comedy that keeps you smiling like you just won the lottery ticket, to breath taking action scenes that keeps you on the very edge of your seats, to introduction of new superheroes with powers we can only hope for in dreams.  

It’s incredible how watchable Captain America: Civil War is and how dull Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice turned out to be….YES. I. SAID. IT lol.  Marvel knows how to move the story along and keep us entertained. Marvel knows how to trick us into liking these characters and caring about what happens to them.  That trick is by making them likable, so likable that I dare anyone in this Universe/Filmhouse to choose one superhero over the other.. YES. I. SAID. IT  

Directors: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
Writers: Christopher Markus (screenplay), Stephen McFeely (screenplay)
Genres: Action |Adventure | Sci-Fi

With many people fearing the actions of super heroes, the government decides to push for the Anti-Hero Registration Act, a law that limits a heroes actions. This results in a division in The Avengers. Iron Man stands with this Act, claiming that their actions must be kept in check otherwise cities will continue to be destroyed, but Captain America feels that saving the world is daring enough and that they cannot rely on the government to protect the world. This escalates into an all-out war between Team Iron Man (Iron Man, Black Panther, Vision, Black Widow, War Machine, and Spiderman) and Team Captain America (Captain America, Bucky Barnes, Falcon, Sharon Carter, Scarlett Witch, Hawkeye, and Ant Man) while a new villain emerges.

Did You Know?
  • Iron Man orders Captain America to stay down, and Cap answers: "I could do this all day". That is the same answer he gave to a bully who was beating him up at the beginning of Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). 
  • In an interview, Daniel Brühl said this movie's budget was so huge that you could make 20 films from it. 
  • The finalists for the Spider-Man role would do separate screen tests with Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. with the intent of seeing the chemistry fit the best with both Evans and Downey
  • In the film, the Falcon utilizes a falcon drone called Redwing. In the mainstream Marvel comics, Redwing was an actual falcon, which was Sam Wilson's sidekick. 
  • Co-director Joe Russo said that "the most powerful shot of the film" was Steve Rogers stopping a helicopter from taking off with his bare hands. The shot was even featured in the first teaser trailer for the film. Russo said Chris Evans worked very hard in the gym to physically embody the character because they wanted to test the limits of Steve's physical strength. About the shot itself he noted, "On set we had Chris straining against a crane holding the helicopter to get this 

So, as I often say! whatever the case may be, however the week is going, everyone needs a little relaxation time as often as possible and it remains our pleasure to offer you that and so much more, because your comfort remains our priority. Until next week stay blessed.
