“Luckily, the movie is good,” Evans said. “If you were all rallying around and working toward and sweating for a bad product, I think that’s how you begin the initiation of disillusionment and apathy... As long as Marvel is making good movies, I’ll still have the excitement and enthusiasm and commitment to work for them.”

Lower than expected box office for DC Comics’ Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice earlier this spring spurred some speculation that audiences may be tiring of superhero movies. But enthusiastic early reviews suggest things could be different for Captain America: Civil War when it opens nationwide this Friday. Fandango reported Tuesday that advance ticket sales have already broken the site’s record.

Civil War features most of Marvel’s Avengers, including Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie). Their superhero union is fractured when Iron Man agrees to - and Captain America rebels against - government oversight of the Avengers. The film also introduces a new character, Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), who’s set to star in his own Marvel movie in 2018.
