- Variety reported that Robert Downy Junior would appear in Captain America 3 as Iron Man, and that he had been scheduled for a small part but them bumped up his on screen time and would be receiving 40 million dollars for the part.
- They then went on to say that this would be the kick off for Civil War.
- Newsarama and Comic Book Resources then reported that the official title of Cap 3 would be “Captain America 3: Civil War.”
- The entire internet then freaked the fudge out.
- This continued for about eight hours.
- Someone finally calmed down enough to look over the articles and realized “Wait a minute… they didn’t quote a single source about this story, and even if they did, they never once said Cap 3 would be Civil War, they said it set up Civil War, as in it’s possible that this could be what happens, never once saying it’s actually happening.”
- Then people went further back and found a month ago the Russo’s, the directors of Cap 2 and Cap 3, had come out and said, “Yeah there is no way Civil War is going to happen, it wouldn’t work.”
- Now we’re here in the present, taking a big sigh of relief, realizing we all freaked out over nothing, grabbing a cold pint, and waiting for all this to blow over.
