Anthony Mackie is out promoting the John Hillcoat film Triple 9, and while talking with Ali Blumb of the BBC, Mackie may have given away a major spoiler for Captain America: Civil War during the interview.
Spoiler after the jump.
At the beginning of production for Captain America: Civil War there were rumors about the Hulk’s involvement in the film and even the possibility of the appearance of Red Hulk. Since then it’s been established the next time we see Bruce Banner would be in Thor: Ragnarok, but the Falcon thinks otherwise.
It is possible that Mackie misspoke during the interview, and Blumb doesn’t ask a follow-up question to confirm the answer, but Mackie states that Mark Ruffalo is in Captain America: Civil War.
“Having seen the movie, it’s Marvel’s best movie so far. And I’m being honest – if a Marvel movie sucks, a movie in the Marvel universe, I’ll tell you it sucked. Winter Soldier and (the first) Iron Man are probably Marvel’s two best movies, and I feel like (Civil War) beats both of those movies. It’s really, really good. It’s because it’s more of an acting movie than an action movie. I feel like the story is very concise and interesting, and you get to see Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans and Scarlett Johannson and Mark Ruffalo and everybody just do really, really good ACTING. And then there’s action in it. I think it might be the first superhero movie that might be up for Best Picture,” said Mackie.

The plot development would majorly change the dynamic if the Hulk were in Civil War. This could be how the Marvel Cinematic Universe establishes how Bruce Banner gets to Planet Hulk.
Do you think Mackie misspoke or is the Hulk in Captain America: Civil War?
