Captain America: Civil War Reportedly Scoring Well With Test Audiences


Currently, the cast and crew of Captain America: Civil War are participating in reshoots, which is something Marvel Studios plans well in advance for each of their big-budget films. However, they might have a lot of time on their hands with hardly any scenes to re-film if this latest report of overwhelmingly positive test screenings is true.

"I have talked to a whole bunch of sources - about five at this point - and they all agree that test audiences have loved the movie," BMD reports. "In fact, the only thing they disagree on is whether the movie tested as well as or better than Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which had previously been the best-testing Marvel movie."

Those sources also claim "that the movie doesn't pull any punches in the third act, and that if Marvel execs had been concerned about the film going dark places, these stellar test screenings have alleviated all those fears." Well, that sounds very promising.

Marvel's Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel's Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May.

Captain America: Civil War will arrive in theaters on May 6, 2016.
