Posted September 19, 2018 04:30:16We all know who Batman is, but we’re still not entirely sure what happens when he joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Caped Crusader’s character arc in the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War” was teased a bit, but as far as we can tell, he just hangs around in a hospital, saving the day.
The latest reveal on the film, however, comes courtesy of an interview with actor Michael Peña.
While we still have no idea what the “Captain Americain” will be up to in the film (which opens on May 6, 2019), the actor revealed that the Caped Crusaders “really are like superheroes” in their own way.
He also discussed his character’s relationship with his parents, and what it was like to play a superhero in a family.
The actor revealed the reason he was cast as the Capeds father, and explained how he was the one to introduce his son to the “superhero lifestyle.”
“I just played the role of the father, that’s all,” Peña said.
“And then we found out that his dad was a super-agent and he was trying to help his son.”
Peña explained that while he “was kind of like the villain” in the role, he also came into it “the hero” in an “emotional and personal way.”
Peña’s father, however was a “strong” guy and “tried to be the leader of the family.”
The actor, who will be starring opposite Scarlett Johansson in “Captain Americans: Civil WAR,” also revealed that he had to learn how to “have a good time” in “The Avengers,” and he also had to fight off an evil villain named Hydra.
“I’m the hero, so I try to be happy,” he explained.
“It was a very emotional and very personal moment for me to play the father.”
Peñas dad was also a big fan of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” and “Captain Marvel,” which the actor describes as a “good time.”
The film, Peña told IGN, was the best movie he’s ever done.
“I really enjoyed doing that film.
It was really fun.
It gave me a sense of purpose, because I was not a normal actor, so it was really easy for me,” he said.
Captain America and Iron Man will join forces in “Civil War,” which is set to be released on May 7, 2019.
