SPOILER ALERT! Do not read ahead if you want to go into ‘Captain America: Civil War’ next month without any idea of what is going to happen!
At a recent Press Conference for Marvel’s upcoming ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ #TeamIron had a lot to say about the upcoming film, including some information about Spider-Man’s role in the film, the Vision/ Scarlet Witch connection, and a few other juicy tidbits. First up is news that it is indeed Tony Stark who figures out who the wall-crawler in New York City is, and then invites Peter to join the fight on his side. Not much is known about how exactly he does this, but one cannot help but feel that if Iron Man sets his focus on something, there is not much he cannot do. Based on this, it is stated that Robert Downey Jr. has a good amount of screen-time in the film with Tom Holland, and one scene in particular will take place in the bedroom of the teenage superhero.
We also learned from Paul Bettany himself that there is a romance blossoming between the Vision and the Scarlet Witch (as in the comics), which was hinted at during the events of ‘Age of Ultron.’ According to Bettany, love makes the Vision that much more human, but also leads to a devastating action by the Vision during the film (some are speculating that it might be the Vision that shoots down Rhodey). Other than that, we have also learned that Robert Downey Jr. will be getting a de-aging treatment for a scene in the movie (similar to Michael Douglas in ‘Ant-Man’), as Downey Jr. will be playing a 20-year-old version of himself during the film.
