CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR ORIGINALLY HAD A DIFFERENT INTRODUCTION FOR BARON ZEMO
When Helmut Zemo is presented in Captain America: Civil War , he offers exactly the impression of being a good guy. After all, he breaks into the house of a man and then torture to try to extract information. However, as dark as this proves to be, the film almost had a much more lethal to the character scene involving him in the death of several people in a room.
This information was revealed in a new commentary accompanying audio to the digital version of Captain America: Civil War, with Joe and Anthony Russo directors and screenwriters Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus (via Cinema Blend .) Joe Russo explains that initially filmed an introduction completely different, but eventually was replaced because no progress in history, as it should.
“We had an original scene, where Zemo was at an auction, an auction on the black market. And that’s how he got his hands on the book, I was in this auction. He killed everyone in the auction with asphyxiating gas. But it just was not a story we wanted for him; it was too mysterious for an opening scene. “
Anthony Russo then said that does not provide sufficient specificity as to how Zemo as a villain in Captain America: Civil War, and then Stephen McFeely explained why the scene is featured in the film is much better than anticipated initially. A large part of this is the fact that the scene can be linked at the beginning of the film including a specific character.
“It is not connected with the opening of the film cleanly. It does, gets the red book, and literally reaches Karpov, which is perhaps most important. “
