Russo Brothers Discuss Breathing Space for Characters in Captain America: Civil War

HaydnSpurrell HaydnSpurrell spoke with the Russo brothers extensively, in an interview which eventually touched on how the directors ensured new characters were not overshadowed by established ones.

"...My brother and I, we've always loved ensemble storytelling," Anthony Russo said. "And if you look at a lot of our work, we worked in ensembles a lot from our first movie... to our television shows.

"We like depth storytelling. We like layered storytelling... we like to pick a path and look at the script from every different character's point of view. Even though it's Cap's movie, and the ultimate way we decide where to go with the film is filtered through Cap's perspective, we do take time and walk ourselves through the story from every single character's point of view as if it's their movie."

"We want to make sure everyone's coming to the movie and it's going to get a lot of satisfaction and have a lot of fun with what's being done with their favourite character in the movie, regardless of who it is. We work really hard to do a lot and do something special with characters who may only have limited screen time in the film."

Captain America: Civil War arrives May 6, 2016.
