Thanks to Empire Magazine’s recent issue, the lid has been blown right off Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, which just might be the studio’s biggest and most ambitious film yet. Earlier today, we reported on the identity of Martin Freeman’s character, and also saw Black Panther unmasked, and now we have some news for you about the film’s ending.
According to co-director Joe Russo, the consequences of Civil War will have a significant impact on the MCU:
“The consequences of Civil War will have an even more significant impact [than The Winter Soldier]. In Civil War, we’re going to change the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Psychology, and it’s an extreme shift. Winter Soldier was a political thriller; this is a psychological thriller.
Russo then went on to mention that the ending of the film might not be to everyone’s liking.
“It’s a very dramatic ending that will be controversial for a lot of people.”
By this point, I think many of us know how Civil War is set to end, and though we won’t spoil it here, if all the recent rumors are true, then it’s clear why the ending is going to be controversial. It’s also easy to see how the events here will change the MCU drastically. That’s one thing that’s been stressed from the start, and given how the film has been shaping up, we have no doubt that nothing in Marvel’s cinematic universe will be the same once it’s over.
Captain America: Civil War bursts into theatres on May 6th, 2016. Let us know what “consequences” you think Russo is referring to here and in case you missed the new Empire photos from earlier, check them out in the gallery below.
