No one else can try and copy Marvel: Chris Evans
At a media event for Captain America: Civil War, Chris Evans — the Cap himself — said he saw no reason why the mighty Marvel engine should slow down at all when it comes to making movies.
“I say, let’s keep going, let’s let the wave get bigger and bigger,” Variety quoted Evans as saying. “It’s not like they’re making bad movies, they’re making great movies and if you want to put them in this superhero box you can but they’re good movies.”
The cast and creators of the Marvel film came together for two media conferences — one for the members of Team Cap and the other for Team Iron Man — to discuss the film. Evans said Marvel’s superhero machine has no equal during the Team Cap conference.

“They’ve got a monopoly on it, they’re doing it and no one else can try and copy it,” Evans said, perhaps tossing a bit of shade toward the recently released Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, spoke to the media about working with a continuously growing ensemble of actors.
“I’ve said it before, and it’s only getting more and more accurate as cast members keep joining, there has never been an ensemble like this in cinematic history. We had to break up into two panels today because everyone is a headline,” he said.
Talk quickly turned to the topic of bringing arguably Marvel’s biggest name, Spider-Man, into the film. “We knew we wanted to tell a very complicated story between Captain America and Iron Man and we’re big fans of balance in storytelling, movies that make us laugh and cry,” Anthony Russo, who directed the film with his brother Joe, said of their approach. “We wanted to bring in characters that didn’t have the same emotional investment that The Avengers had. Bringing in characters like Spider-Man and Ant-Man who don’t have that baggage, allowed us to bring new colour to the film.”
Separately, Captain America: Civil War has opened to positive responses in Pakistan. According to the film’s distributor IMGC Entertainment, the film has already sold out over 5,000 tickets in terms of advance booking. Released on Friday, the film is expected to earn big in the country.
