After having epic fight sequences against aliens, Norse gods and psychotic robots, The Avengers have decided to have those same fights against each other in ''Captain America: Civil War". SOUNDBITE co-director, Joe Russo, saying (English) "We like to liken it to a fight at a wedding. It's something that's been brewing in a family for some time and something happens that instigates a fall-out amongst all of the characters." But the fall-out doesn't come from a family squabble, it's more political as the United Nations want the superheroes to sign a treaty to keep them under control, which some have an aversion to. SOUNDBITE actor, Chris Evans, saying (English): "Even in American politics, no one is right or wrong, there's no evil here, we're not fighting Nazis or aliens, this is just a matter of whether we're fighting for our head or our heart." SOUNDBITE co-director, Anthony Russo, saying (English): "Relevancy and topicality are really important to us because it makes the audience feel like it's part of their world. When they're watching it, they feel an immediacy to it which makes them connect more on an emotional level to the storytelling." And with its glowing reviews, it seems that the Russo brothers have hit the superhero nail on the head. 'Captain America: Civil War' will be in cinemas worldwide from April 27
