And it appears the film is testing very in fact scores are through the roof. According to Birthmoviesdeath.com, the film is testing so strongly, that despite the current last minute reshoots, which is routine for movies of this size, it is expected to stay more or less the same because the scores were so strong.
“We don’t know what they are shooting but i can tell you this: they’re probably not changing too much, because the film has been testing exceptionally well. I have talked to a whole bunch of sources – about five at this point – and they all agree that test audiences have loved the movie. In fact, the only thing they disagree on is whether the movie tested as well as or better than Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which had previously been the best-testing Marvel movie. Further, my sources tell me that the movie doesn’t pull any punches in the third act, and that if Marvel execs had been concerned about the film going dark places, these stellar test screenings have alleviated all those fears. So if the test screening audiences are right we’re looking at a movie at least as good as Winter Soldier, which could be argued as the best Marvel movie yet.”
No doubt this is very exciting news and hopefully the film delivers on the hype. Many believe the first Russo Brother film Captain America: Winter Soldier is the best Marvel film to date, however these scores sound like the film is testing just as well as that.
Captain America: Civil War sees Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo return. The films mega cast includes Chris Evans return as Captain America and Robert Downey Jr. return as Iron Man aswell as star Scarlett Johannson, Elizabeth Olson, Paul Bettany, Paul Rudd, Sabastian Stan, Tom Holland & Martin Freeman.
Captain America: Civil War is set to hit cinemas April 29th.
