Almost everyone who was ever seen a Marvel movie could agree that “Captain America: Civil War” could be one of the best superhero movies to date. The deep and profound storyline, coupled with the colourful introduction of a host of Marvel characters, gave viewers an experience they would never forget. For most people, this movie could go down in the books as Marvel’s best project yet. However, someone big would not agree with this -- and that is no other than comic book titan Mark Millar.

Those who are not familiar with the name might not realize that Mark Millar is the reason Civil War existed in the comic books in the first place. Recently, he released some statements in his blog regarding the final cut for the film -- and it looks like he was not impressed at all by what he saw.

In his blog, Millar wrote that “Captain America: Civil War” had a good opening that lasted around 20 minutes or so. However, after that, he said that he could no longer remember what the film was all about. He found it interesting that the Russos have a firm background in comedy because the film apparently missed a sense of humour in its entirety.

He adds that he hopes that the bleakness that he saw in “Captain America: Civil War” would not extend to the two other planned Avengers pictures. This is because he thinks that what made the first Avengers movie a hit was the light and shade. He added that it would be sad if all that will be lost in the same manner they did in “Captain America: Civil War.”

Marvel’s Civil War was the comic’s most popular story arcs when it was released in 2006. The project came out with a seven-issue run that Mark Millar created himself. The big crossover pitted Marvel groups against each other as Captain America and Iron Man turned their backs on their alliance. When “Captain America: Civil War” was announced, a lot of comic book readers turned sceptic as to how such a big project would be turned into a movie. However, the movie garnered positive reviews from audiences and critics alike.
