"Captain America: Civil War" Main On End Titles
Appearing immediately after the film's final scene fades to black, viewers see a debris-laden surface where the first titles appear – "Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo" – strongly lit from five angles with spotlights. In this initial frame, even the stones and other objects cast long, dramatic shadows. But in the subtlest of poignant design surprises, when the second title appears for screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, anyone paying attention will notice that the shadows cast by the words have taken on a life of their own, assuming forms that are easily recognized by fans of Marvel and Captain America. The highly creative, artful techniques employed to pull off these visual feats over nearly two minutes is a perfect testament to Sarofsky's own superpowers.
