Captain America: Civil War may have its moments levity, but it’s one of the darkest movies to come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Captain America and Iron Man‘s factions were split apart by the Sokovia Accords and the fate of the Winter Soldier. But just because things were serious on the big screen doesn’t mean the cast didn’t get silly while making the film.
Via Heroic Hollywood, a portion of the gag reel from Captain America: Civil War‘s upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release is now online, and it’s the perfect antidote for the film’s bleaker moments. Chris Evans, Robert Downey, Jr., and Scarlett Johansson set the tone for the behind-the-scenes clips of botched dialogue, laughter, and the times when they just couldn’t stop themselves from breaking character on camera. For example, a less than graceful landing by Anthony Mackie‘s Falcon made Downey laugh out loud during one of the film’s most emotional scenes.
Even the supporting cast wasn’t immune, as Martin Freeman flubbed his line only to get a hilarious response from Mackie. Elizabeth Olsen and Emily VanCamp are spared any embarrassment in the current clips, but neither woman could resist laughing at some of their co-stars’ more ridiculous moments. And poor Paul Bettany just kept tripping over his dialogue in full makeup as the Vision.
There’s at least another 1:43 of bloopers awaiting in the final gag reel, which will hopefully include some footage of any unscripted moments of comedy with two of the movie’s funniest performers: Tom Holland as Spider-Man and Paul Rudd as Ant-Man. Downey actually calls out “Tom” by name during an outtake from Peter Parker’s introduction to the story, so it seems likely that we’ll see them.
Captain America: Civil War will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on September 13. But if you just can’t wait, you can also buy a Digital HD version starting on September 2.
