People will continue to speculate about all manner of things surrounding Captain America: Civil War, from sides to Spider-Man’s involvement and beyond, but Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige says that may be losing sight of the the most important part of the film.
First and foremost, Captain America: Civil War is a conclusion to the Captain America film trilogy.
“It’s very much, in a certain way, the completion of a Captain America trilogy,” Feige told MTV. “I think one day you’ll look back and watch — Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Captain America: Civil War — and it’ll be one of the most unique and different trilogies ever around a single character.”
The trilogy may be built around a single character, but he has plenty of supporting cast member.
“[We’re] bringing in some of the other players, most importantly Tony Stark, to tell that Civil War story. But it is very much a sequel to Winter Soldier,” Feige said.
Of course, if the trilogy is going to end, fans will speculate that it means the end of Captain America, or at least Steve Rogers. Iron Man made it out of his own film trilogy without dying, so that doesn’t have to be the way things end, but there is precedent from the comics.
