Oh bloopz, you’re truly a gift from above. Celebrity goof-em-ups are reliably a lot of fun and Marvel has a knack for putting together an impressive gal reel. Mistakes in superhero gear are ten times goofier than in civilian clothes, you know.
The latest Marvel cinematic offering to put their gaffes on display is Captain America: Civil War. A bunch of attractive charismatic multimillionaires bloopin’ it up in front of green screens? Yes, please. Enjoy Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Scarlett Johansson and more flubbing lines, cracking wise and occasionally looking very silly operating weaponry. The comic book blockbuster will be arriving on DVD in September.
Elsewhere in Captain America: Civil War funzos, directors Joe and Anthony Russo recently shared with Entertainment Weekly that they had a fascinating Plan B for the movie if the original plan didn’t go through.
“It was not a given that we were even going to do Civil War when we were talking about the next movie after Winter Soldier. So there was a period of time when we explored possibilities for Cap stories that did not include it,” Joe Russo says. “We spent a few weeks doing that, although Civil War came up fairly early in the process and once that happened it took over our brains and we ran hard at it.”
“There was a period where we did discuss a third act that revolved around the Madbomb from Cap mythology,” Anthony Russo said. “It didn’t have anything to do with Civil War, and if we couldn’t get Downey – in the very, very early conversations before we nailed him – somebody pitched the idea of a third-act that revolved around the Madbomb, which makes people crazy. It almost like zombifies them – but not literally.”
You’d be hard-pressed to find someone unhappy with the movie we got, but that alternate Captain America adventure sounds pretty darn swell.
