Captain America: Civil War Opening Sequence

Captain America: Civil War Opening Sequence

'Captain America: Civil War' genre is clearly constructed throughout this opening sequence. The genre of this film is action and adventure and this is signaled many times throughout the title sequence through editing and mise-en-scene. The Soundtrack is orchestral with a fast paced tempo to it. The percussion is very fast paced which gives the audience an idea of the genre the film has.

Another way in which action and adventure is presented to the audience through the title opening are the shadows of the moving objects. In this screen shot the moving object appears to be a machine gun which is a strong sign suggesting that the film involves some sort of war, violence and death. The titles are also deliberately placed on the silhouette of the machine gun as the two colours contrast each other so that the titles stand out more clearly.

I also noticed that when the main actors names were shown their character was presented in some way. Here we see Robert Downey Jr. name presented to the audience and we also see the shape of iron mans mask. This is also done with all the main characters to show the audience what superheroes they are.
