Marvel gets clever with its marketing efforts
Last night, the Russo Brothers, directors of the imminent “Captain America: Civil War,” who will also be the caretakers of “The Avengers: Infinity War” down the line, ran a brief live feed on Facebook from the sound-mixing stage where they’re working to finalize the third “Captain America” film — and they stuck a clip from the movie we haven’t seen before in there.
Joe Russo makes a show of introducing all the folks in the room with him as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross (William Hurt) is detailing the Sokovia Accords, the agreement that would de-privatize the Avengers and make them report to a UN council. This is the lynchpin of the titular civil war that has the Avengers doing battle with each other, and this scene is seemingly where that schism begins. Amusingly, you can see the robotic Vision (Paul Bettany) sitting there at this conference table wearing regular clothes.
We’ve seen snippets of this scene in the two trailers, but the chunk seen in the 50-second video is all fresh.
