People have been playing such games in speculation regarding Captain America: Civil War that one would expect them to be making bets in Vegas regarding sides to Spider-Man’s involvement and beyond, but Kevin Feige, serving as the head of Marvel Studios and overall visionary for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, feels that such speculation is somewhat shortsighted when it comes to the heart of this upcoming 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.
While it is now confirmed that this trilogy is going to end, the big speculation is regarding what happens to Captain America and/or Steve Rogers. Tony Stark survived his trilogy, but with Steve Rogers’ death at the end of Civil War in the comic book many people are wondering if we will see the demise of everyone’s favorite Marvel Boy Scout. With all of the talk about Bucky/Winter Soldier becoming the new bearer of the shield the questions keeps being asked if he will inherit the mantle from Steve Rogers. At any rate that answer, for now, lies solely with Kevin Feige.
