Early Word On CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Likens Elements Of It To An "Emotional Horror Movie"
Given everything we've heard so far about Captain America: Civil War, it's probably safe to assume that Marvel is very happy with how the film turned out. So happy, in fact, that the studio has apparently been showing it to a few lucky people - and some of those people have reported back to Birth.Movies.Death.
Some more very positive early word on Marvel's Captain America: Civil War here, as reactions from some recent screenings of the movie have popped up online. They're spoiler free, so take a look...
According to the site, these guys liked the movie... a lot. Word is that it's very much a Captain America story despite the massive amount of superhero support, and the focus stays firmly on Rogers and Bucky. Spidey and Black Panther are also mentioned in a very positive light.
"This isn't Avengers 2.5, but rather Captain America 3, and it truly focuses on Cap and Bucky. I have been told that Spider-Man is great, and that the film doesn't waste time on retelling his origin. We all get it, and the movie just moves along. I've been told that Black Panther is phenomenal, and that Chadwick Boseman is a major addition to the MCU.
This movie picks up the pieces of Avengers: Age of Ultron in surprising and human ways and makes us feel the true cost of Sokovia. And I've been told that the last half hour of the film is brutal, both physically and emotionally. One person told me that the last act plays out as an emotional horror movie because the film gives both Tony and Steve solid reasoning, and because it truly makes you feel the depths of this schism."
We've heard rumors of some pretty devastating stuff going down in the final act of this film, so that "emotional horror movie" stuff would seem to back that up.
Obviously this is all a little vague, and it's probably best not to put too much stock in a second-hand report until we learn more - but it's always hard not to get just a tad excited when such positive early word on a big CBM comes our way.
Captain America: Civil War is scheduled for release on May 6, 2016.
