When “Captain America: Civil War” was first released, the positive reactions were mostly drawn only by the spectacular action that pitted one half of our beloved Avengers against the other. , making it difficult because of the superhero registration question as well as Tony Stark’s jealousy of Cap paying more attention to his beloved BFF Bucky Barnes than himself. Admittedly it’s been a while since I last watched the movie, but I pretty sure that the last part is the biggest reason for the real civil war.
In any case, once the dust settled, a creeping concern began to invade discussions about the film: Why exactly is it all so monotonous and gray? For those who have died to know what the filmmakers think about this in a better decade, boy, I have good news for you! In an appearance on “Notes on a Scene” by Vanity Fair series, directors Joe and Anthony Russo finally unraveled their chosen color palette in “Civil War.” Their answer, apparently, was suppose to look ugly like it? According to Joe:
“This movie has a brutal tone. It means no color. The whole idea behind it is that all these characters are sliding into this moral gray area. They don’t understand the identity of the film. themselves. They clash with each other.”
Okay? I feel like this reasoning applies more to the similar (and much less critical!) “The Winter Soldier!), as opposed to the spectacle-filled events of “Civil War” which is said to have a lot of “” Avengers” than -like the intuitive approach. I mean, the airport sequence is literally a splash page of live-action! However, the film is still among the highest rated MCU products on Rotten Tomatoesso maybe they got into something.
