Marvel released a first look at Giant Man in Captain America: Civil War, played by Paul Rudd.

“We played with a number of different ideas in terms of what it would be, but none of them had the potency of that Giant-Man beat there,” director Anthony Russo told USA Today. “He’s just really impressed with Captain America, he just wants to deliver and he figures out a way to deliver where he might actually tear himself in half but he’s willing to do it and it works. It just lined up on a lot of different levels.”

Joe Russo also revealed the special effects were created using a green screen with a combination of Paul Rudd’s action on set with a motion-capture performer who would move around slowly as a giant would, stomping on things and tearing a wing off an airplane, and then they mapped it onto a 50-foot-tall man in post-production.

“The sequence that almost ate the movie," Anthony Russo added. "I would say at least 40% of our entire post time was on that sequence, just because it was so complicated.”

"Captain America: Civil War" is now in theaters directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.

Synopsis:

Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
