5 Reasons Why Marvel Will Lose Big On Captain America: Civil War
5. It Shouldn't Just Be A Captain America Movie
Civil War should have never been be a solo Captain America movie. While The Winter Soldier focuses on a character who is clearly canonical to Cap, no one hero or villain can lay claim to the entire Civil War. At the very least, it's more of a "Iron Man v. Captain America: Dawn Of The Infinity Wars". As it stands, Marvel is cashing out one of their biggest brands on the third act of their number 2 character. This begs the question: how much of this film will be Captain America and how much will be Civil War? Too much of either does an injustice to the other. Those adherent to the source material can argue (and rightly so), that Civil War couldn't and shouldn't be brought to the big screen without the inclusion of all the major players. But of course, unfortunately for Marvel Studios, that would include at least Wolverine and Reed Richards. After the dismal performance of Josh Trank's Fantastic Four, 20th Century Fox might well have been happy to offload that particular property for the right price, but Wolverine would never be as easy to rope into the MCU. Regardless, Civil War deserves to be a film trilogy. To truly do it justice, it wouldn't even be an Avengers film. It would be a MARVEL film. It's the Avengers, it's Spider-Man, it's Doctor Strange. It's the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe... and it should feel that way.
