Captain America: Civil War is considered one of Marvel Studios’ biggest projects, as it belongs on the list of the highest-grossing films in the franchise, along with Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.

Speaking to The Town podcast, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever producer Nate Moore revealed the original idea for Captain America 3, which proved to be different from what was presented.

“We knew we had to resolve, obviously, the Winter Soldier storyline. We wanted Cap and Bucky to ultimately reunite. And we knew we wanted to use Zemo. What a great character. You know, he's obviously a classic Cap villain.” explained Moore.

The producer continued, “We were building the movie around a MacGuffin around the Madbomb, which, the Madbomb goes off and causes normal people to start fighting each other. It's honestly a little similar to what I think they did in Kingsman.”

However, Marvel’s big boss Kevin Feige rejected the original concept and pushed its enhancement, claiming it’s not sufficient to be a grand success unless they go with the Civil War storyline.

“[Feige] was like, 'That's not a big enough idea, guys.' And we're like, 'Let us write a draft, we'll prove it to you.' [Feige:] 'Okay, prove it to me.' As we're getting done with it... he pulls me into his office and he said, 'You know, I think we should try to do Civil War," Moore narrated.

Initially, Moore was not onboard with the idea, as he believed they didn’t have enough characters to feature what was in the comics. But with little enthusiasm and effort, they were able to make it work with the core Avengers group and the additions of Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther and Tom Holland's Spider-Man.

In June, after six long years of discussion, the MCU subtly confirmed in Ms. Marvel that Team Iron Man won in the Civil War. However, fans believed that even if Iron Man emerged victorious at the time, it would come at an unforeseen cost.
