Captain America: Civil War shook up the status quo of the Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. By the end of the film, there is an Avengers schism that has Earth’s Mightiest Heroes divided in two sides (at least). Iron Man, Vision, and a badly injured War Machine are still at the compound while Captain America, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, and Ant-Man are fugitives. Black Widow is also a fugitive, though we don’t know where she ended up just yet. Cap’s pal, Bucky Barnes, is on ice in Wakanda.

Even though Steve Rogers sent “Tony Stank” a message that the former would be there for Stark when needed, too much went down and was revealed in Civil War for everything to just be okay. There are hard feelings and those feelings are not going to be resolved off camera. We will get to see those fences being mended in Avengers: Infinity War, as Anthony Russo, who directed Civil War and will direct Infinity War with his brother, Joe, told The Independent.

We believe things that are important and complex for a character to go through should be seen on camera. The divisions that happened at the end of Civil War were so deep they’re not the kind of things you can resolve or move through off camera; they’re the kind of things you have to directly deal with in the storytelling.That’s our philosophical approach to how we handle those things.
