Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War is going to be getting some more shine thanks to Marvel Week on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Doctor Strange will be debuting footage on Kimmel this week, but fans can see Ant-Man/Scott Lang interacting with Captain America/Steve Rogers in this exclusive clip.
Warning: Minor spoilers for Captain America: Civil War up ahead!
According to the plot, Sam Wilson/Falcon personally recruits Scott Lang and his shrinking suit to aid Cap and his team. In this clip, taking place inside of a parking garage, Steve asks Hawkeye about the new recruit (referring to Lang), and Hawkeye opens the door to the van revealing a sleeping Lang. When he hops out of the van to shake Steve’s hand, he is awestruck by his presence.
Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, and Paul Rudd were then quizzed on how well they know each other. They were first asked what song Evans has memorized the lyrics to, and Stan guessed the correct answer: “The Little Mermaid.” The cast was then asked what Rudd’s last name was shortened from, and when nobody was able to guess the answer, Rudd chimed in with Rudnitsky.
Chris Evans then talked about the role of Captain America and how many times he has played the character — Captain America: Civil War makes it a total of six times. Evans says that he originally wasn’t up for taking the role, considering how it would be a multi-picture deal and the thought of that seemed scary. But the role kept coming back to him, even after he had said no and realized that he was doing it out of fear, which he ultimately decided he should conquer.
Meanwhile, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige spoke with Collider about Marvel’s involvement with Sony’s Spider-Man reboot. The two studios are ultimately sharing the character in their respective films, with Spidey now officially being in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and that will carry over in his Sony solo films. But when asked just how much involvement Marvel Studios has, Feige had this to say.
“We’re working very much [together]. It is a— I don’t know exactly what the credits will be, but it is a Sony Pictures production of a Marvel Studios film. The agreement was that it is very much a Sony Pictures movie. Amy Pascal is co-producing it with us and [Sony Chairman] Tom Rothman is leading the charge for Sony and that we are the creative producers. We are the ones hiring the actor, introducing him in this film, and then working right now on the script and soon to be shooting the actual Spidey film.”
Apparently, there are no plans for a Spider-Man sequel as of right now, with the focus being just on Captain America: Civil War and the Spider-Man solo film. Feige once again confirmed that neither studio will be going back to an origin story for Peter Parker — fans won’t have to witness Uncle Ben being shot yet again. This time, they understand that audiences know the character and his backstory.
“We spend a lot of time as we work on these movies saying ‘Don’t take it for granted that the audience saw the other the other movies or that the audience is as versed in the comic books as we are.’ We take great pains to give you everything you need to know within the context of whatever movie you’re actually watching. However, we did say, if it’s safe to assume anything, it’s safe to assume that everybody knows how Spider-Man became Spider-Man and what that backstory was. We’ve seen it a number of times now, it’s its own well-known mythology. So we said, let’s reveal that there’s been a Spider-Man in the MCU and we meet him, as you see, in [Civil War].”
Captain America: Civil War will be in theaters on May 6, 2016.
