“Captain America” Screenwriters Reveal Their Original, Non-“Civil War” Plans

According to “Captain America: Civil War” screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, “Civil War” wasn’t away “Civil War.” During an interview with ScreenCrush, they discussed their original plans for “The Winter Soldier” sequel, how “Civil War” developed and more.

“We started out working on a ‘Captain America 3’ and what would that be, picking up the thread that had been left behind by ‘Winter Soldier,'” Markus explained. “So it was Bucky, it was Steve and the ramifications of digging deeper into that relationship.”

However, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige had other ideas. During the development of their original film, which never made it to draft, he asked that Markus and McFeely begin an adaptation of “Civil War.”

However, that doesn’t mean their original plans were scrapped entirely. “A lot of that movie is still in this movie,” McFeely said. “The central theme, even the way [Daniel Bruhl’s character] Zemo is operating, are from that iteration.”

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan and more, “Captain America: Civil War” opens on May 6, 2016.
