Iron Man, Captain America Start ‘Civil War’ Over…Last Doughnut
It seems like the on-screen animosity of Captain America and Iron Man, two of “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” in the Avengers, is (coffee) spilling over into the film’s catering tent.
In a humorous clip to promote the newest, much-anticipated Marvel movie to hit the big screen, Captain America: Civil War, People magazine shared a short clip of actors Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. (with Elizabeth Olsen watching terrifyingly transfixed in the background) as Evans discovers Downey has taken the last doughnut during the film’s press tour.

“Is that the last doughnut with red, white, and blue sprinkles?” Evans asks.
As a heart-pounding soundtrack builds, Downey licks his lips then takes a huge bite.
“What did I tell you would happen if you ate the last doughnut with red, white, and blue sprinkles?”
“I’m a little foggy on it,” Downey admits, staring daggers into Evans’ eyes. “But I think it was something like, ‘Raining down hell-fire.’”
“That’s right,” Evans responds.
“And here I am without an umbrella…” quips Downey.
“I feel a storm brewing,” says Evans.
Suddenly, the tension reaches fever pitch when Olsen lets out a blood-curdling scream…
…which the actors can’t help but burst out laughing.
After so many movies together, it’s no surprise the off-screen chemistry between these actors would be spot-on perfect. We’ll happily take much more of this silliness in the future.
Captain America: Civil War hits theaters May 6.
