Despite lacking the Avengers brand name in its title, Captain America: Civil War ended up being a real culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe up until this point, more than any other film in the universe can really say. Not just in regards to how many characters it included, but to how it brought many of the characters’ storylines to a head as well.
Many people have called it Marvel’s best film to date – myself included – and it looks like the movie contains none other than the head of Marvel Studios himself, Kevin Feige’s favorite moment in any MCU film ever up until this point also.
While recently speaking on the Empire Podcast, Feige revealed his favorite moment in the movie to be (Spoiler Warning) the reveal that Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) killed Tony Stark’s parents. Here’s what he had to say about why the moment itself resonants so heavily with him as well:
“I think it’s my favourite moment in 13 MCU films. The whole movie was building to that, and it’s amazingly executed by the Russos. It goes back to conversations we had years ago about how to make it different and how to have as many characters as any Avengers movie and yet have it end in a very different and personal manner.”
It’s not hard to see why this moment in particular might feel so triumphant for Feige. The seeds of Bucky’s secrets have been planted for quite some time now, and seeing it all come to fruition was one of the most heartbreaking and dramatic moments in any superhero movie ever. The fight that ensued following it was even more brutal and desperate than I think fans could have predicted as well, and in what feels like an entire film of Cap and Bucky following Baron Zemo’s breadcrumbs, seeing that the end of their trail led them to that was a bittersweet pill to swallow.
Captain America: Civil War is in theatres everywhere now.
