  • The title of the film was made public during Marvel Studios' event at El Capitan Theatre on October 28, 2014. Kevin Feige at first announced "Captain America: Serpent Society" as the sequel to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, before eventually revealing the true title of the film after the rest of the planned Phase 3 movies had been unveiled during the same event.[19]
  • With a worldwide total box office gross of about $1.15 billion, this film became the highest-grossing film of 2016 and the 12th highest-grossing film of all time.[20][21]


  • Filming began on April 27, 2015; the same day as 20th Century Fox's Marvel film, X-Men: Apocalypse.[22]
  • In Sharon Carter's eulogy for Peggy, she quotes her Peggy's "No, you move," philosophy, which is actually a direct quote from Captain America's speech in Amazing Spider-Man #537, which is part of the Civil War event in the comics.
  • The assault tactic of Ant-Man riding Hawkeye's arrow is an explicit homage to the cover of Avengers #223.
  • Tony refers to Bucky as "Manchurian Candidate," a reference to the film and the novel of the same name, which features a brainwashed assassin in a Communist conspiracy.
  • The climax of the fight between Captain America and Iron Man is an homage to the cover of Civil War #7.
  • Before Robert Downey Jr. accepted the offer to reprise his role of Tony Stark / Iron Man, whose presence was essential for adapting Civil War, directors Joe and Anthony Russo considered a plot of which its third act revolved around Helmut Zemo making use of a Madbomb. The main challenge for Captain America in this climax would've been finding a way to stop the antagonists, which would've been a horde of mindless, yet innocent, civilians.[23]
  • In a draft of the movie before Spider-Man's addition into the script, Iron Man was going to travel to San Francisco and recruit Ant-Man into his side instead.[24]
  • Early into the development of the movie, Hope Van Dyne was set to make her debut as Wasp. The idea was scrapped because she wouldn't get enough screentime to do her justice.[25]
