Captain America: Civil War - European Press Conference in Full

Captain America: Civil War - European Press Conference in Full
welcome ladies and gents and this is terrifying I'm going to start with thee with our directors at the back here if that's okay and Antonia Jill you guys you guys seem like action geeks action lovers but what comes across is that your action has to it has to have a story there has to be a story even in set pieces there's kind of so much going on kind of within things that you watch would you agree with that and can you elaborate on but this we take you actually refer to ourselves as action fetishist that's right ah yeah no for us that you know action is like you know it's it's it's it's a it's of a piece with all the rest of the storytelling that we do it has to be a strong ex

press

ion of narrative and character at every moment that's how we find our way through action and you know it's like this movie we had such an amazing cast so many great characters all the action sequences are designed around how we're pushing those characters through the movie on a storytelling level you want to add to that yeah yes yes it's like amp said every every every piece of action the movie either has to define character and move story forward or it's vacuous action and I think an audience can only handle about 30 seconds of that before they start to get tired of it so we really put a lot of thought and effort into it it's also great making these films because action really is an integral component of it it really does help us to find...

the characters in a very dynamic way before I threw out to the huge audience stay a quick question for our two gents in the middle if that's okay and mr. degen I'll start with you if that's okay one words to describe

Captain

what for you describe our mind and our mind to the scrum charismatic well that accounts what do you got turn my mic up thank you rad ass I don't know let's open the questions after audience i'ma gonna head to joy I wonder who is from a wonderful organization called interfilm who's going to have the first question Joe 17 years old and have a big Marvel fan and I just like to say I thought the film was brilliant and thank you for it my question is for Robert Downey jr. you spend a fair bit of time in the film Mountain costume or as a

civil

ian what difference does this make in maintaining your superhero persona well I mean I remember from the beginning trying to establish all all the Marvel characters I mean for the most part is you know how do you humanize them or make them relatable you know I mean and it's I mean I can only relate to someone so often when they're all gussied up so I figure you know but it was a great opportunity I'm not really here yet and there's a lot of people here I just all turn around for about a half an hour till I'm back in my body excellent question by the way what was it I'm just...

next to Joe Joe if you want to pass the mic that'd be great thank you I was Chris ah so

civil

was possibly one of the most political superhero movies that's kind of ever happened now and it focuses on quite a few real world issues as well as kind of just fingers within the world of the superhero world um but of course we live in a pretty complicated world ourselves I mean the questions I suppose mainly for Kevin by anyone else about the opinions I feel free to chime in I mean if you could choose one superhero to be in all well to try and help our problems what would it be mmm in real life yeah what super here I gotta tear this a great question we usually get what's your favorite superpower what's your card they want that's not a good question Lord oh it's coming gosh which superhero in real life - that's a tough one it isn't just tough it's a tough one it's not that tough the vision dancer I'm just so pretty he's omnipotent and he can pick up the hammer I mean come on but when he talks everybody turns off their hearing aids so somebody wants I think if there were leaders that had you know such such morals as both Tony and Kat we'd be in it we'd be in a pretty good place no I don't like that answer I want answered Kevin said one eye I nominate Hawkeye because he retires every 10 minutes dance how stressful it is ssible going to a barbecue okay next question in the second or if you want to pound the mic just behind you...
captain america civil war   european press conference in full
that'd be great thanks how are their films amazing by the way our kids loved it it's this is question from why a year old son Khan for

Captain

America

Iron Man the film is about

Captain

America

and Iron Man falling out yeah have you two ever fallen out over something silly on set and what was it about oh god no not at all that's one of the best things about these movies they really somehow manufacture an environment that I can't imagine arguing with any person on this set and you know listen sometimes that happens on film sets and for some reason when you step on a Marvel film set it's just it's like summer camp it really is like you can't even construct a world where there would be some sort of friction and even as they grow the universe every new person they add to the fray never no one ever is out of place they always fit right in and feel like they've been there for years speak for yourself so here's a way to say when my son Exton started wearing entirely

Captain

America

PJs and hats and everything I felt the natural resentment but being a consummate professional I didn't bring it into the workplace a gentleman in the front row here please thank you we've got one microphone really hello this is for Emily Emily hello my name's mark do you think your character is looking forward to a further romance with Steve Rogers or does your character I think is a little bit icky because he had the hots for your auntie I just was the...
first British question we've got um well in the comic books they actually went on to have a very interesting complicated love affair so that was something I loved about you know when I was doing the research for Sharon but I don't know how far we'll go with that we'll see I suppose I mean it helps that it's like the great aunt it's not you know there's like one generation I guess I get it some people think it's weird little icky annoying little icky feeling it Emily was it great to see your character you kind of get get in and get dirty with us in terms of get some up you know get involved in the action yeah yeah well sue it was so fun I mean Sharon is a badass in the comic books it was nice to be able to kind of play with that a little bit and yes these movies are great fun to make so happy to be a part of it right next question let's go to the lady Derrick with it awesome here hi my questions were Paul um Lisa which which one oh yeah oh very good knee ah my own town awkward and mr. Owen is the goddamn question a Paul Rudd yes alright we saw you a little bit with Falcon in unmanned and and I was of C wondering this is your first time with everyone and I wonder if that was a bit of a sort of initiation or anything like that to sort of get you to a part of the group it was it was there any sort of horrible noogie is everything yeah like it no everybody was very nice and very welcoming and you know it was a bit surreal to see everybody in...
their suits and no it was it was a very very welcoming feeling I've this reference will just drop like a lead balloon but I felt a little bit like cousin Oliver coming along and joining the rest of the Brady Bunch alright thank you that's real good stuff Bettany would you like to comment on that comment yeah why don't you two just get a room you know what do you marry a Paul G Paul there's a couple of scenes a particular that feel I don't know if it's right or not but I felt like it was it felt like a real injection of your humor in in those scenes in terms of the scripts and stuff were you allowed much freedom with you no ad-libbing and improvising and things like that or was very much stick to the script alright yeah I think I was although most of stuff is written but there's you know these guys were definitely saying go ahead and play around with a little bit I mean that's part of the fun of a character like Scott Lang you know even Roberts saying that you want these people to be relatable this is a guy that doesn't was not born with any kind of super ability and so it's fun to kind of see meeting these characters through Scott Lang's eyes and that that's kind of the way that I felt just being there shooting that scene there was you know very little acting required I think of that okay next question gentleman there with you signed up and then if we get our microphone to the gentleman there as well making just flip to that...
question straight after they are right in front of you one next time I want all of your body miked hi this is 10 with Russell in the surname Oh should we interpret the recruitment of spider-man by Tony Stark as him using child soldiers and if so what's it say to it to Iron Man's character Wow a bit heavy you know it's perhaps the most powerful child soldier in the world yeah he is um look there's a certain narcissism to the character and you know Tony doesn't want to lose this fight at the same time I think he also sees a Spider Man as the greatest living non-lethal weapon if you're going out to capture a bunch of people who you don't necessarily want to hurt you couldn't ask for a better character than spider-man to take with you he does show up and and and you know illustrate the Spider Man he knows how powerful he is in a video where we see spider-man stopping a car moving 40 miles an hour where he catches it and puts it back on the ground so I think he believes that he's taking with him perhaps one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel Universe and I think he feels like the kid will be well protected under his tutelage you also find out in that sequence when things go wrong the kid says what do I do and Tony says keep your distance Webb them up so he's already he's he's obviously mentored the kid for what's about to go down but it's still very irresponsible and Robert can you a little bit about about working...
with Tom because that scene in particular where you arrive at his house in his bedroom so it's wonderful and just about how you first met on what that meeting was like in him being cast well now that two out of three Spider Men are English are really good I really got to talk Maguire off the ledge now but mr. Hollin anyone who experienced him you know he's uh he's not a work in progress I mean he's really something else and I think by the way folks reacted to this I mean it's always you know it's like a new anyone you know I think he really came on with a with a bang and and there's a lot of excitement about seeing what will happen when he kind of holds his own you know but uh did anybody no one did anyone dislike Holland or we all look David we'll talk about it later we'll post something if there's any dissension I think Jenna's got microphone over there um my name is Arthur I'm from Germany I have a question for Daniel uh yes I really liked the performance I thought you are villain was one of the most sympathetic one that Marvel has put out so far and his motivations very understandable like that he's still alive at the end of the film so I wanted to ask you are you under contract for more food it's a question for Kevin then I couldn't answer that question I hope so but no I mean this is not something I can I think you talked about into the quarry cancer I hope so but no but we wanted to elaborate about your car to...
be in being sympathetic of the most pathetic villain that's what attracted me right away because it's not a cliche stereotyped villain you know he has his very human motivations he has his reasons so that gives that gives the character you know that fence you know makes them ambivalent X question please a good mic from there's a question from Elizabeth and Emily when you're on set with this much testosterone do you kind of dig your heels in and go really girly or you do to throw in the towel and become bloated fied low Q fur I rather just hold my own without having to be extra girly or blow cough I yet yeah nice I think just like hanging as your self is good I almost made it by the way without having to say anything no chance that's why I'm here and really the same to you yeah no I mean as it's a lot of it's a lot of dudes I will say that but yeah everyone's everyone's great it's it's a really good environment I don't think there's any girl if lying or black flying I kind of watch that language when they're around you know uh-huh I'm looking I'm still trying to work on watching my own yeah exactly they're not eight by the ways work I know I do I understand and look can I ask you about one thing that I love about this is the parents of the relationships whether those are you know the allies or or indeed the kind of conflicts that you have between all the Marvel kind of superheroes and for you and...
Paul's character in particular this is wonderful kind of play you know off each other was that fun to kind of to work with Paul in person if the frustum will talk to you in a second pause that's okay bad Paul can you just hold on one second and but yet what can all those that kind of pattern in the relationship particularly with I think it's something that um that fans have wanted but we're just trying to route it into something that's like more pure of a of a friend and a companion because they they we have to make up like what like it I'm eight I am made from I'm not a mutant I'm made from his stone basically and so we have that in common and to use that as a thread that roots our relationship I think is really important and grounding in a way Paul Bettany what she said Bob Rudd take this one I think they're both they they're joined by the fact that they don't neither of them know the extent of their powers and that's that's terrifying but also unites them and for you being there as a physical being what how much fun was that to you know for the whole entirety of the film oh it's hot was it was it was it makeup it wasn't a mask it wasn't kind of cool you can just Peter all-new but it was its makeup that they then they continued on with computer-generated stuff so I'm wondering why I'm in them every time my lap and blowing up my life oh thanks you want to haunt out should I'll give you a hand out...
here can still get shiny I'll just stop like that whisper and if you want to finish the answer to that I was thank you okay gentlemen in the Czech shop please can we get a microphone turn please and then if someone over this week but it hard I've will get a microphone to use well leading the pink top I think yeah oh thanks I have actually seen the film yet so no spoilers please this is a question for Anthony and Jeremy as the guys who have the Latin of superpowers but a whole lot of weaponry at your side how do you feel your characters contribute to to the the overall war that's less than

civil

a lot of leg workouts I have it in my contract that I have two behind shots twice in the movie so you know thighs and quads men thousand almost like we answered a different question I gotta give them what they want baby you know I can't have a tree without the trunk you know what I'm saying uh uh don't called some thighs the same thing no no no two different must all go to different muscles on either side of your leg your hand falls in the back leads down they are on your thoughts they are on yeah yeah so courtside thoughts no no your thighs are here your quad is the frontal salutes last question would you like to cut my claw anyone here Renner nice helpful brother I love you guys I love you good you gonna watch to that sir what know about my blood No I will move on to the next question I did with a microphone there hi Tina from the Sun it's one for Roberts...
and for Chris has the emergence of the Justice League where is it happening okay oh there and sorry the question was has the emergence of the Justice League made the Avengers up their game well III don't think anyone up here you know makes movies based on what other people are doing I think you know for the most part we're kind of doing what we do because it's it's you know it's it's argue it really well we do it's true I shouldn't say we it really is the the Marvel you know the higher-ups oops who somehow figured out this formula of good movies listen when they get a Bucky will start talking I was just about to ask you a questions first oh good I was hoping I want to ask about the ears about your quads not about your pores ya know about the airport scene because it's it's a huge scene er there's there's kind of so much going on in terms of the actual reality of film in that how much was there when you were filming it and kind of how was it well half of us were there as in the team cab cuz I hear teamironman was like hanging out I saw thanks buddy welcome dude um no it's what we shot her over five months ohs that one scene yeah yeah it was sort of chopped up in different bits and most of the time it's like what Anthony likes to describe acting with a tennis ball cuz you're just you know there with your imagination and the green screen the relationship between between you and carpets you know he he saw a spoiler...
because your ears for a second anyone else has not seen it I haven't seen it okay please when Steve loses peggy know he's his only connection to his previous life he's he's the thing that he wants to hold dear that he which is a real kind of tenderness to this you know kind of superhero film with which you guys just play was that something you kind of you know talked about in terms of that relationship what it would have been like in the past I'm bringing it's not yeah that's one of the best parts of movie in my opinion that I think you have these guys who you know they shared a battlefield together I think any guy you know it's been in war will tell you that once you actually risk your life and have seen war with someone else that's your brother for life and they were brothers even before that and then given the fact they both have gone through such trauma you know cap they've each lost they've each lost you know and Bucky more so than me things were taken from him but as a result we both kind of have even more of a connection and more of a bond and and and we are the only remaining thing especially I don't want to snow spoilers the the last remaining chapter the last remaining elements of a previous life so it really kind of transcends that kind of family dynamic that we've you know built in in the Avengers where you see a guy like cap who typically does what people need and in this movie he does kind of what he wants and...
he prioritizes his personal ties over the needs of the masses and it's all because of this kind of Brotherhood foundation they've built right thank you and gentlemen here with a question and then if we can get a microphone over there as well it's a question for Robert on behalf of the male members of the cast and for Elizabeth on behalf of the female members of the cast how do you see the characters progressing through the movies and how much of that evolution is down to you as actors as opposed to what's on the page I don't really want to talk for anyone else oh here's all I want to say Feige and I were out to dinner last night and you two thought they'd dosed our bubby water we were looking back at the last 10 years and all the kind of little miracles and the blood sweat and tears that had to happen to keep developing all these character he's just got kind of like not in a self aggrandizing way but just kind of giddy and kind of super super grateful at how things have gotten but as far as the people who really have to hash it all out I mean you have to talk to Kevin and the team I want to say because I generally give no credit to writers and I'll try not to do this again that Markus and McFeely did an exceptional job on this which is a really tall order Varys said it at lady down the front there and then we'll get our who on this side hello I don't really mind who answers this but I just wanted to know did everyone end up on the...
team they wanted to be on they get the script to go ah I did kind of want to be on Team I there's a similar question as she come in from we're streaming online and we've had a question come in on social media from Phoebe who wants to know if you could switch powers with another Avenger at which one would it be um that's a good one III mean switching powers I'd take vision not switching makeup the real nightmare but but the ability alone yeah you can't you can't beat vision he has an infinity star in his head I don't know how you top that Oh would you want to swap with anymore just stay here you are yeah I'm okay where I'm yeah I mean it might be nice to be Iron Man now and again yeah I'm pretty good bro Thank You Jeremy what okay I'm sure I don't give you all right so that's supporting I've ever heard in my life wait a month yeah I've always thought spider-man oh oh do this young you get at it great stop and okay next question jet it's got a microphone overhead you get out of here go on ask your question is that this question Robert so I've seen the other Avengers films you'll kind of cuddly in nice for everyone yeah but that's there are you yeah so what do you prefer being like horrible to Steve or not I think what's obviously I mean it really just depends on you know what's the what's the narrative of the movie as you can see I'm a I'm a worker amongst workers and I like I...
like getting in where I fit in in any movie where I can spend weekends with Renner he's Lord of the underworld this is Pluto back here gonna get you home in one piece but you're actually finally going to have a good time I've got microphone here as well go for it oh this is Kevin um when are we gonna get our Falcon Bucky roadtrip movie ah yeah that's a good idea we're doing like we're shooting a weekend at Bernie's spin-off yeah with the three of us who's the Dead Guy Jerris Bernie Lucky's weekend at bucket that's what we're doing you know bucket Kevin I want to ask you about the the kind of the additional characters that brought into the scene others we see new characters kind of coming in to join the teams how do you know when in the process of putting that idea together and who was coming in and where they were going to be how did you want that it's a kind of like a chessboard is it know that well the chessboard on this movie was who who sided with who to your earlier question sort of and there were a lot of characters that went back and forth for a while before we landed on on the on the makeup of the team but in terms of the addition of tom hollander spider-man and chadwick boseman who who couldn't be here today but who was unbelievably awesome it's got like Panther it came from the story we didn't sit down and go okay we want to introduce these characters because we want to make more movies and how do we wedge...
them in it was we are telling

civil

war we have kept side we have Tony's side and we wanted to bring in somebody who wasn't allied with either side and black panther in the comics is great because he doesn't really give a about either of the other of the other side's he has his own agenda and it was I don't know if the court of the way through the development process where we thought this would be the time to bring in panthan good next question please gentlemen over there please we got Mike answer anyone this side as well put your hand up okay I the gentleman there if we get Mike to everyone's question please I have a question for Kevin Joan and me what are Nikki fury and Maria hill doing during the events of

civil

war you'll find out soon that's the answer there is there is story around where they are but it's story that's coming down the road future movies sort of fair okay and there you go you got microphone girlfriend yeah it special for Kevin I was just wondering how early in the whole MCU process did super war come about was it you know pre phase one was it after Winter Soldier when it was it actually a reality for you it was before yeah before the MCU even existed in the early days of I think we were even just beginning to dream about maybe becoming our studio and getting financing was about a little over ten years ago which is when

civil

war was published and and it was an amazing comic series and I remember reading it you know...
every month when when it came out in thinking it was probably be impossible but would it be cool someday to do this and it wasn't until about two years ago two and a half years ago that we thought now is the time we've assembled enough players that we could do with them can I ask a question for me how do you decide who stands going to be who Stanley what I do in each phone who decides where he's going to pop up and it's very sometimes the idea comes about very early and is incorporated into the script and sometimes based on his schedule or where he's where he is willing to travel it comes about sort of later in the process I'm guardians of the galaxy it was uh it was shot later and I think this one was shot during production but I remember when the idea came up for this one was in the draft I think it was in the draft yeah yeah I usually would comb through when the script is done and try to find a spot for Stan yeah okay next question there's a lady at the back in a blue shirt bring get your microphone and anyone else on this side where's your ad if you have a question or good much you've had one you can if there's time you can have another one but they'll gentleman behind in the glasses things it's a question for Chris Evans so this this time around like models the Marvel Universe is really like stepped up so like what were your initial thoughts when you first read their script the

Civil

War uh it was it was exciting you know I...
mean a lot of it rested on down his shoulders whether or not that he would be willing to do this you know and and you know right away that when you bring Downey into the equation the movie is kind of you know it's it's gonna have a certain level of awareness and it's gonna have a certain level of charisma he just he but you know that that's what he comes with and it was it was it was exciting it was exciting to think that you could kind of you knew what it meant as a jump-off you knew what that meant because obviously the

civil

one the comic books incorporate so many characters and at the end of the movie you know Marvel has this great history of never leaving you completely satisfied you kind of anticipate the next chapter and this would obviously leave the entire MCU and a little bit of disarray which is exciting because that's only going to be more rich for the next Avengers helm so for me I was I was thrilled I mean I'll take all the help I can get a gentleman there question hi this is a question for Chris again and where are you there yeah yeah following last week like my friends in saw it at the same time one of the things they were talking about was that scene where you pulled down a helicopter I don't hang on the shape of your arms in particular yeah a little bit of bicep power and she bowed and was it more than the John how what was it how hard is it to the liner I missed it how hard is it to look like much oh I don't think it was...
Kevin did you know that's alright I think I think it was me but it's you know you do those things luckily between scheduling and Russa everyone you try and get those scenes as early on in filming as possible because you you gradually shed weight as you're filming you wear in that suit every day and you just I was helping him work on his shoulder about six weeks after that I I really genuinely did mess up something in my arm we loved that shot doing it you know like it's very unnatural position to be in and you lay low you're trying to flex you're trying to look good on that like you know it's not Nestle eteri and shot you it's really just trying to look good here that come on in I was just what do you want I was eight um you really were holding back a helicopter too it was on a rig clearly but the first take we did rig it it didn't go far enough and so you're kind of just you look silly almost and you say guys you got a can we get it so it actually extends to the point where you really are trying to hold something and they did and you really do all of a sudden you are trying to hold something may not be a helicopter but regardless it it did something and that's true they were they were many days that I would come into Downey's trailer and he has all these amazing contraptions he's like well I was gonna say another comic book character we don't want to bring DC into this but he has all these amazing toys and uh and and he...
really had all these little you know stickers and weird things and like electro medicine whatever it is and it actually was great it's a mess again I'll mention this I remember the day we shot that scene there was a miscommunication with costume department and Chris came the set to start the scene in a jacket and Joe and I were like no no no no it would've been a different scene yeah and jacket.look onset physiol mr. Don jr. like that no sigh - that's nice you Robert thanks Jeremy rubbing down Chris that's sweet little digital stimulation never hurt anybody we're talking much would be really ugly Joe get along gentleman there with the beard bro question and then but I have a questions your intermission in this

press

conference

do you want to go no no I'm fine do you want to go answered a lot good sir questionable yeah if superheroes were a reality in 2016 what do you think the government's reaction to them will be teamironman Heywood there would have to be some sort of responsibility you have to answer to somebody that you couldn't just let these group of vigilantes answer to themselves right I mean that's that's the sad truth I mean the truth is of this if it really were Avengers I would be team Iron Man I would I mean what god you're here I was really having a hard time grasping that concept yeah and then last question to the met Jeremy just behind there you got Mike yeah the next question is for rather than alter Paul at...
Daniel with his children phew I would be interested who is at the movie set the big boss who has got the biggest trailer and Wow it wasn't mine I think it's Matthews that would be correct Antonette where'd the biggest trailer uh well I have a lot of stuff you know so I just you know it it's really nice just really you know I got a you know yeah like five of them what you gotta fit to that I got on it and thighs and quads somewhere you know but here's like five five of them yeah where Robert actually has a smallest trailer he just has another four trailers right it's beautiful Airstream trailer yeah there's there's four actually the state of Georgia want to give it its own zip code it's like a kiddie choo-choo train and it just goes around in a circle and what's about you know no train I didn't get one no but we're maybe you got a chair you're not really coming from Germany I remember that the first day the first scene I had with with Robert after five minutes he asked me if I had allergies I didn't understand the question and when I had lunch and was eating my burrito in my humble little trailer somebody knocked at my door and said and he was sitting in a golf caddy he said like you're cordially invited to Robert Downey's Village my burrito and then in the far distance I saw that huge space with yeah four or five Tyler's you know thank you long poetry's I had a three-course meal right did you get muscle I...
was quite said when he left because I was at the inviting price that's everybody's goal every day is that lunch to see who's gonna get invited to the belly and you get so jealous like the day he was invited I see him growing on my grill I'm like not a written Carter of the MCU Robert introduced me to quinoa I was like what is this beautiful grain Molly a lot of marbles I'm putting in my mouth like that's key now where do I buy they had a good one I I wanted to have sebastian over sooner but he sent me this video of him just ripping out bicep curls with a decapitated Iron Man is going that thing and I was like this guy's method that's now it's find out what his allergies are and it's time for intermission I'm afraid and thank you very much indeed for you time your questions
