New ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Photos Go Behind the Scenes

Marvel Studios has given a new look at its upcoming superhero movie “Captain America: Civil War,” releasing nine new official photos to Entertainment Weekly.

The superhero fiction franchise’s latest installment features Captain America (Chris Evans) and the Avengers as they continue to defend the world against evil. Governmental pressures to regulate superhuman activity arise, creating conflict within the alliance and dividing the Avengers into two opposing teams led by Captain America — who’s supporting a system free of government interference — and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) — who’s pushing for government oversight.

In a recent interview with BBC Radio, “Captain America: Civil War” actor Anthony Mackie called the upcoming action pic Marvel’s best movie.

“‘Winter Solider’ and ‘Iron Man’ 1 are probably Marvel’s two best movies. I feel like this one beats both of those movies,” said Mackie of Marvel’s latest installment.  The actor also predicted that “Captain America: Civil War” will be the first superhero movie to receive a best picture nomination.

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the film also stars Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Sebastian Stan, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Jeremy Renner, Emily VanCamp and Paul Rudd.

“Captain America: Civil War” hits theaters on May 16, 2016.

The new images are below:

Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) sides with Iron Man (Downey Jr.) on the superhuman regulation issue, due in part to his distaste for Captain America’s comrade the Winter Soldier (Stan).

T’Challa aka Black Panther reprimands Falcon (Mackie) and Captain America (Evans) for a failed mission.

Johansson bounds across a series of cars as Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow.

Black Widow’s stance on superhuman regulation is conflicted due to her loyalty to Captain America and her innate desire to answer to the people.
