If you envied “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn for watching “Captain America: Civil War” before everybody else, then here is a little consolation for you: the directors of the film revealed key details about the first film in Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Techno Buffalo reports that director Joe Russo shared the length of time that passes between “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and the events of “Captain America: Civil War”. The director’s statement was relayed by the website as follows:
“We like to say that the amount of time that has passed in between films is the amount of time that has passed in the movies. So, it’s about that amount time.”
More so, Techno Buffalo further quotes the other half of the Russo brothers in saying that the movie starts off with Captain America (Chris Evans) leading the Avengers and tutoring one of its newest members–Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen).
Apart from sharing how the film begins, the directorial tandem also reveals how the African country Wakanda will be an integral setting in the movie’s plot.
In a report by ComicBook, it appears that Anthony Russo was not very much open to reveal how big of a role Wakanda plays in the story. Instead, the other Russo brother emphasizes Black Panther’s (Chadwick Boseman) importance in “Captain America: Civil War” and turns vague by saying that Wakanda’s (Black Panther’s home country) involvement may go either way.
Nevertheless, the website reveals that Joe Russo was quick to neglect his brother’s effort to be vague by saying:
“If you’re going to see Wakanda, we go, ‘Listen, we can’t tell you whether or not you’re going to see Wakanda.’ You’re probably going to see Wakanda.”
Based on this statement, it is probably safe to say that Joe Russo is the brother fans should turn to when they want to get spoilers or inside scoop from the upcoming film. For now, fans should have to wait to learn the truth about Wakanda.
“Captain America: Civil War” premieres on May 6, 2016.
