If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! Captain America star Chris Evans spoke at a Sunday press conference in preparation of the upcoming release of Captain America: Civil War. The anticipation for the 3rd Captain America is palpable; people have been seeing the setup for the brawl between Captain America and Iron Man for quite some time. People love to see a good superhero brawl, don’t they? Any-who, Chris Evans spoke on Marvel’s movie monopoly and whether or not we might be seeing them slow down their releases or the scope of the movies.

Not that kind of Monopoly...though he's probably on Team Stark.

“I say, let’s keep going, let’s let the wave get bigger and bigger,” Captain America’s Chris Evans stated. “It’s not like they’re making bad movies, they’re making great movies and if you want to put them in this superhero box you can but they’re good movies. They’ve got a monopoly on it, they’re doing it and no one else can try and copy it.” Hmm, I wonder who that was directed at? Chris Evans is right, though…Marvel’s movie monopoly is simply their consistency. They haven’t really released an under-performing or coldly received movie in quite some time and I doubt that Captain America: Civil War will break that trend. Captain America: Civil War opens up May 6th, 2016 and stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Emily VanCamp, Tom Holland, Frank Grillo, William Hurt, and Daniel Brühl.
