I don't know about everything, but this was blatantly obvious form the start. Just as it was obvious which side the writers were on.

Despite Mark Millar's protestations, Iron Man and company were constantly portrayed as the bad guys, making deals with super villains like Venom, cloning Thor, et cetera.

I think both sides were given bad lighting. Cap's team worked with killers and brought children into combat.
