Rumor Has It: Will ‘Avengers’ Lead to a ‘Civil War?’

With the release of The Avengers right around the corner, expect to see the principle cast making the publicity rounds in the very near future. Even Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, has been talking with the press about the likely blockbuster. He’s apparently and understandably crossing his fingers for a sequel, and here’s what he had to say when inquired about if the famous Civil War property from Marvel or something similar would make its way into the “Avengers” franchise:

“You can obviously see that in the decades and decades of Avengers comics prior to the Civil War event, the conflict between the characters, the differences in world views of all the characters, that led up to what happened in Civil War, certainly that’s in this movie, you can see how different Tony Stark and Steve Rogers are in a great way. In this movie the question is are they going to be able to stop fighting each other long enough to fight the bad guy

Civil War would someday be a great crossover eve but here it’s more in the character interactions than a direct easter [sic] egg.”

For anyone unfamiliar with the Marvel series Civil War, The New York Times described it as “a seven-issued limited monthly series […] [in which] the beliefs of many well-known Marvel characters, including Captain America, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, and Spider-Man […] [are] challenged."
