CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR (2016): Writers Talk Film and Appearances From Other MCU Characters

Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely

Writers Tease What’s Coming in Captain America: Civil War. After Avengers: Age of Ultron, fans will be eagerly anticipating next year’s Captain America: Civil War. Screenwriter team Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely teased about what’s to come.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association panel, the screenwriters discussed Captain America’s next adventure and the long journey to adapt the Civil War storyline. “It’s been on and off the table for a while, let’s put it that way,” McFeely said via IGN. Markus and McFeely pointed out that in order for them to adapt the storyline, the characters had to be developed further in their own films before reaching what emulates in Civil War.

And it’s a challenge to do it and make sure that all the characters that we’ve established, and everyone’s established in the MCU are serviced and sound correct, right? Because there’s a difference between the characters in Civil War, which was written in 2006, 2007. The MCU doesn’t exist [when it was written]. There isn’t a Robert Downey Jr. or Chris Evans who has helped create the character so we need to make sure that that template gets adjusted and what have you in order to make sure it services these characters and not just sort of rip off their parts and make them look like them.

The pair further discussed about how Peggy Carter would play into Civil War due to her relationship between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark’s father Howard. “As we have not started shooting, and I’m on my fourth draft of many, that question [of who Peggy was to Tony Stark] has been in and out all over the place so who knows,” McFeely responded. “So many things can shake out but we’ve had conversations and we pitched scenes. Some stay and some don’t. But we saw [Peggy] in Winter Soldier, so we know she’s around”.

Without revealing any details, the screenwriting team also tackled Black Panther’s introduction in Captain America: Civil War. “I’ll keep that one close to the vest,” said McFeely, “but I’m very gratified that they went with Chadwick and that he said yes because he’s a good get.”
