Chris Evans says Civil War will "change the dynamic" of the MCU forever

If your day has so far been spent watching the new Captain America: Civil War (opens in new tab) trailer (opens in new tab) on repeat, then you're not alone. It's got us very excited for a number of reasons. Namely, the footage of Black Panther in action, Cap and Tony duking it out, and of course, that little cameo at the end. As delightful as it is, there remains many questions still unanswered. Luckily, the cast and crew hit up Buzzfeed's Tumblr for a post-trailer Q&A with fans, giving us a few new scraps of info on the upcoming sequel.

Of all the questions asked - and there's loads - one fan asked a pretty important one: how might the events and conflicts that take place in Civil War affect the group afterwards? Chris Evans' response makes that quite clear: "They will change the dynamic FOREVER."

"There will be a long lasting fallout from the events of this movie," director Joe Russo adds, "It will significantly alter the psychology of the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forward." It's not hard to imagine that being the case, with Cap and Bucky's friendship getting rekindled while Cap and Tony's lies in tatters. We could spend days guessing what might happen but until the film hits theaters we won't know for certain what's in store for the gang.

Whatever the future holds, Anthony Russo says that we shouldn't worry. There's lots of tales to come. "The beauty of superhero movies is that there are always more stories to tell," he adds. "You can go anywhere with the genre. With Winter Soldier we mashed up genres by making a political thriller. With Civil War we are doing a psychological thriller. Infinity War will be something else entirely. And other filmmakers are finding new ground all the time. You can go epic, or you can do small and intimate character work. You can do real world or fantasy world. I think we can all look forward to many more years of surprising and original superhero movies."

And that's just the tip of the lettuce. The rest of the Q&A (opens in new tab) touches on a ton of fun topics, including Black Widow's allegiance, the differences between the movie and the comic, and who Hulk and Thor would side with if they were in the film.

Directed by Joe Russo and Anthony Russo, and starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chadwick Boseman, Tom Holland, Anthony Mackie, and Sebastian Stan, Captain America: Civil War opens in UK cinemas on April 29, 2016 and May 6, 2016 in the US.
