Some recent set photos have surfaced recently of the upcoming film Captain America: Civil War. This isn’t anything surprising since set photos pop up every week, but these set photos are especially interesting as you can see below:
The sign an stone read: IFID- Institute for Infectious Diseases. Now we obviously don’t know what role this place has in the film and most likely won’t until the trailers or the actual movie comes out. We can however base an opinion and idea about where this place may be and who else is connected to it. It looks as though it’s possibly going to be located in Wakanda based on the scenery around it. Wakanda for those who don’t know is a fictional place in the Marvel comics that is popularly known as the home of the hero Black Panther. Black Panther is to be introduced in Civil War played by Chadwick Boseman who will also star as the character in his own solo film in 2018. Now, why this place being in Wakanda makes a difference, I don’t know, maybe just to connect Wakanda more, but it really doesn’t need to. Infectious diseases on their own are interesting enough that I care more about why it’s in the movie rather than I care about Wakanda. Infectious diseases could be a plot point for a whole movie and that worries me since it’s in Civil War. Unless Civil War’s plot relies on diseases as a main focus then I really don’t want to see it, I really don’t want to see it as a throw away location either. Marvel tends to do that. The possibilities for an outbreak of a disease are amazing, there’s so much you can do with it so I look forward to seeing if it’s worth mentioning.
