'Captain America: Civil War' Shooting Locations To Include Atlanta, Berlin, Puerto Rico; Filming Starts In April
Shooting for the third "Captain America" film, "Civil War," will kick off this April and hit a few different locations, according to one of the film's stars, Anthony Mackie.
Mackie, who stars as The Falcon in the franchise, confirmed in a recent interview with B96 Chicago (via CBM) that he will be back for the third film, which he says will film in Atlanta, Berlin and Puerto Rico.
"We start shooting in April," Mackie said. "So, it's gonna be a lot of flying and fighting for about five months... and I'm not mad at all."
While Mackie didn't offer up any more details on the film or locations, all signs point to the film serving as a major influence on the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — something that has been in Kevin Feige's plans for quite some time.
In an earlier interview with Crave Online, the film's directors, Joe and Anthony Russo, discussed just that.
"Cap 3" will have a "very, very big idea" that "alters the universe as a whole in some way," Russo and Russo said, noting that the film's official title has been pretty much a given for nearly a decade.
"If you've been talking to Kevin [Feige, President of Marvel Studios] the title has been in place probably for ten years in his brain. It's all part of the road map that he's laid out, and it's all part of the bigger plan."
"Captain America: Civil War" will hit theaters on May 6, 2016 with Chris Evans returning as Steve Rogers/Captain America, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Mackie and Daniel Brühl. Other actors rumored to be set for the film include Frank Grillo as Crossbones, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier and Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa/Black Panther.
