Marvel Opposed The Climactic Fight Between Captain America And Iron Man In Civil War

Tag: why does captain america and iron man fight

Captain America: Civil War was Marvel’s first major crossover event before Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. And the now-defunct Marvel Creative Committee never wanted Tony Stark and Steve Rogers to fight in Civil War.

Captain America: Civil War shows a rift between the Avengers after the introduction of the Sokovia Accords. This set of laws puts superheroes under the control of the United Nations. Tony Stark favored the laws whereas Steve Rogers opposed them. This causes a rift and thus causes Iron Man and Captain America to fight in the movie.

Even before Captain America: Civil War, Tony and Steve used to clash at different points in the movies. The main reason for the clash is the difference in overall worldview. Fans eventually figured out that this will end in a head-to-head battle. And so happens in the movie. Just like in the comics, it was interesting to see them fight on-screen too.

Marvel Creative Committee Didn’t Want the Fight

The Story of Marvel Studios: The Making of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (via SlashFilm) revealed there were some who opposed this clash. The Marvel Creative Committee objected to the clash between Cap and Iron Man in Captain America: Civil War.

Climactic Fight Between Cap and Iron Man

As fans already know, the committee consists of several Marvel executives who are notoriously known to interfere in several Marvel projects. Even for Captain America: Civil War, they wanted Avengers to fight the Super Soldiers at the end of the movie. Co-writer Stephen McFeely said, “We had to do a draft where they had a fight in a submarine base with five super soldiers.” However, the Russo brothers objected saying this isn’t how they want to make the movie.

Marvel boss Kevin Feige agreed with the Russos and as the brothers said,

“Civil War started a civil war in Marvel. But when we drew the line in the sand, it became a moment where that company was either going to slowly bend back toward where it had come from, or it was gonna slowly start to bend toward new territory.”

This battle was taken up to Disney’s CCO Alan Horn. And as we know Russo brothers won and we saw Cap and Iron Man fight in the end.

Climactic Fight Had Lasting Repercussions

The final battle between Captain America and Iron Man had lasting repercussions on the future events of the MCU. This fight is the reason why Avengers lose in Infinity War as they were not united.

Hence, Civil War’s ending was a smart one. And hence the Creative Committee’s third act would have given the movie a dull end. Over the years, fans got invested in the friendship between Steve and Tony. Seeing such a dull end would have left the fans feeling unfulfilled. However, the fight was interesting to see as it shows two friends reaching a breaking point.

If the movie would have ended as the Creative Committee wanted, the movie wouldn’t have been as memorable. So, it’s good that the creative won out.
