Boseman, Bettany, Mackie and Stan on Captain America: Civil War
Captain America: Civil War may only have one superhero’s name in the title, but it’s as expansive and ensemble-driven as any Avengers movie to date. Practically every hero introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far makes an appearance, and gets to kick each other’s butts all over the screen. Some of these heroes we know very well, but others – like Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther – are making their debut in Captain America: Civil War.
We sat down with four members of the Captain America: Civil War cast to talk about their contributions to the film, and their expectations about the project. Two of them, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, play characters who, in the comics, eventually took on the mantle of Captain America. We ask The Falcon and The Winter Soldier if that affected their performances or their expectations of the film, and also consider what it must be like to talk about a film that – unlike many of the films these actors are interviewed about – they simply know in their heart of hearts is genuinely good.
We also talked to Chadwick Boseman about building the Black Panther from the ground up, and where the influence for his accent came from. The Black Panther is from the fictional African nation of Wakanda, giving Chadwick Boseman a lot of options to develop the character’s identity, and he tells us about that decision-making process.
And of course there is also Paul Bettany, whom we ask the geekiest possible question about The Vision, and who answers as concisely as humanly possible.
