CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR (2016)

 

imdb

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo

Political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability when the actions of the Avengers lead to collateral damage. The new status quo deeply divides members of the team. Captain America (Chris Evans) believes superheroes should remain free to defend humanity without government interference. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) sharply disagrees and supports oversight. As the debate escalates into an all-out feud, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) must pick a side.

Filmed in 205 in Berlin , Germany and Atlanta, GA. For the 3rd Captain America, we once again teamed up with Harley-Davidson. We used a few different models in this film ranging from vintage to the latest incarnation of the Street platform. In Atlanta, we used a customized Sportster as the main “Black Widow” ridden bike. For this sequence, we set the bike up in a “street tracker” style. The action sequence consisted of some great traffic weaving and eventually, seeing Black Widow plow into a few taxis in a very congested African market place. At the end of the sequence, we had the bike being laid down and used as a weapon to take out a row of bad guys. For this, we made slide cages that protected our stunt rider, and allowed us to perform multiple takes without damaging the bike (too much…)

The main stunt sequence was shot in Berlin. For this chase scene, we used the 750 Street model and prototyped the components that would be come the “Urban Street” model. These bikes were heavily modified for an assortment of action scenes. The scene centers around a high-speed chase involving Bucky and Captain America. We also introduced a new Marvel character called Black Panther. While filming in Berlin for 6 weeks, we performed many mods including crash cages, lightweight SFX bikes and even a left hand throttle set up for a fight scene.

The sequence directed by Spiro Razatas turned out fantastic. The film has gone on to become a very important part of the Marvel catalogue, and one of our favorites so far.
