According to the directors of the new Captain America sequel, the action film takes on Barack Obama and his terrorist kill list. In an interview with Mother Jones magazine, Joe Russo explained that he (and brother Anthony) wanted to make a "political thriller" and added, "I just looked at the issues that were causing anxiety for us, because we read a lot and are politically inclined. And a lot of that stuff had to do with civil liberties issues, drone strikes, the president's kill list, preemptive technology."
