Marvel Studios is proof that comic book films can be done well when there is thought put into the movies. Today, they have announced the cast/character line-up for the upcoming film CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR. Of course, there will be Cap (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), but the incredibly exciting list also includes the Vision played by Paul Bettany, Clint Barton/Hawkeye played by Jeremy Renner, James Rhodes/War Machine played by Don Cheadle, (The Wild Card) Scott Lang/Ant-Man played by Paul Rudd, Sam Wilson/Falcon played by Anthony Mackie, Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch played by Elizabeth Olsen, Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier played by Sebastian Stan, Brock Rumlow/Crossbones played by Frank Grillo, T’Challa/Black Panther, Agent 13/Sharon Carter played by Emily VanCamp, Dr. Heinrich Zemo/Baron Zemo played by Daniel Brühl, and Martin Freeman as…..? No one knows yet, but he’s awesome, so it is more than likely a fitting role.
We all know that they still have yet to announce who will be Spider-Man, but he will be making his debut in the MCU. There is also a possibility of William Hurt reprising his role as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross; hopefully as just the military brass and not as the Red Hulk. I think adding Red Hulk would simply confuse the regular public and they would not understand why there are two Hulks. I know this is a lot of information to take in, but it’s awesome news any way you slice it. I’m excited about this and I think this movie will be as epic as the comic it is based on.
