Fans of Marvel movies would probably call Captain America: Civil War as among the "best superhero movies" so far. "The deep and profound storyline, coupled with the colourful introduction of a host of Marvel characters," has made it a special project, that makes viewers undergo an everlasting experience.
However, is this Marvel's biggest and best project? Comic book giant Mark Millar does not agree, according to International Business Times.
Mark Millar, of course, is the prime driver, even cause of Civil War's existence in comic books. Yet, he wrote some cutting statements in his blog about the "final cut" for the film. And it is really obvious that he was not enamored by it.
He agreed that Captain America: Civil War showed a good opening for 20 minutes or so. But following that, he said he has no idea what it was about! Though the Russos do have a strong background in comedy, the movie did seem to be missing out on humor, he explained, sarcastically.
He adds, "I really hope this bleakness doesn't extend into their two Avengers pictures because what made that first Avengers work was the light as well as shade and I'll be sad if that's all lost like it was in this picture."
When the movie was released in April 2016, Marvel's Captain America: Civil War became hugely popular - perhaps the most watched. The entire project had a "seven-issue run" created by Mark Millar. Due to a shifting crossover, the Marvel groups were put against each other, even as Captain America and Iron Man turned away from their alliance.
With the announcement of the making of Captain America: Civil War, there weren't too many readers who could even believe that such a huge project could go live. Still, the film got some good reviews from both viewers and critics, finally.
