‘Captain America’ heading back to China
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” has secured a theatrical release in mainland China, according to Chinese state media.
Official news agency Xinhua reported Friday that brothers Anthony and Joe Russo, the film’s co-directors, will be in China and hold a promotional event in Beijing on April 19. At that event, which will also involve “Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie, the exact release date will be revealed.
Contacted by Variety, Disney did not confirm the release date for “Civil War.” But other sources set the film’s Middle Kingdom opening as May 6. If confirmed, that would put “Captain America” on a day and date outing, synchronized with its wide release in North America.
The film has a premiere on April 12 in Los Angeles. It is scheduled to release in many international territories in the last week of April and the first week of May.
