"The film definitely has a more serious tone I think than any other Marvel [Studios] movie yet. And that's kind of natural to the process because you're really gonna turn these heroes, who have been friends and partners, against one another. And if we're gonna have them fight for a whole movie to the end, there has to be a serious issue because these are smart people, they're likeable people; they're not villains, they're good guys. And so you have to think very hard about a very complex situation that's gonna put them in conflict with one another for an entire movie. At the same time, not all the characters in the movie have the same investment in the conflict. There are certain characters that come into the story a little later who don't have the same baggage that the Avengers have in terms of what's going on in the film. So they don't have as much darkness to deal with in the film, so they can be a little lighter and more fun. I think the movie has a healthy balance between very serious, interesting and very surprising storytelling, and sort of light, fun wits and humor. Characters like Spider-Man and Ant-Man enter the story a little later." - Anthony Russo (via omelete tv)Captain America: Civil War opens May 6, 2016.
