Captain America: Civil War is set to hit the big screen at the end of the week and looks on course to be another huge smash for Marvel. The film is based on the iconic Civil War storyline from the comics... but it was not always going to be this way.

Feige, reveals that the third film was going to continue and explore further the Bucky storyline and what that would mean for Steve Rogers.

Speaking to io9, Feige said: "We developed Captain America 3 knowing we wanted to continue the Bucky story. Is Bucky going to get his mind back? What is Bucky struggling with, after the tag scene on Winter Soldier, and how does Steve's desire to save Bucky bring him into conflict with something else, thinking about how do the sins of his past sort of affect him?

"And [writers] Chris [Markus] and Steve [McFeely] came up with a number of cool plots that could've worked, but none of them were feeling worthy of a follow up to Winter Soldier."

Civil War comes two years after the success of Captain America: The Winter Solider, which saw Sebastian Stan take on the role of the Winter Solider for the first time.

The new movie sees him reunite with Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie and Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr, Jeremy Renner, Paul Bettany, and Elizabeth Olsen are some of the big new additions to the cast list this time around.

We are also going to be introduced to a series of new characters as Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Daniel Bruhl and Martin Freeman will be introduced as Spider-Man, Black Panther, Zemo and Everett K. Ross.

Captain America: Civil War will kick off Phase 3 of Marvel movies and will lay even more foundations as we head towards Avengers: Infinity War; the two-part movie will be released in 2018 and 2019.

Captain America: Civil War is released 29th April.
