New key art from Captain America: Civil War shows off an epic brawl between Iron Man and the Winter Soldier. The two characters have no love lost when it comes to the events of the blockbuster Marvel Studios picture. Civil War’s ending actually still brings out strong reactions of the MCU fanbase.

For us, it was extremely important that we cast somebody very close to the age of a high school student. The previous films had adults playing a high schooler. We wanted more of an authenticity to the casting. We were very specific about that. We wanted an energy and charisma from the character, an energy, but also an insecurity that would make him fun to watch in contrast to the confident superheroes.”
“It was also important to us that the actor that was cast feel contemporary because the other films that portrayed where he lived is more... they honored the comic books in terms of the choices. But you go look at the home that Tobey Maguire lived in in Raimi’s Spider-Man was... those were very expensive homes. We wanted to relate it to the reality…”
