After many leaked photos and videos have surfaced on the internet, Marvel and Disney have finally released a trailer for the third Captain America movie: Civil War.
“Captain America: Civil War” picks up where “Avengers: Age of Ultron” left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
While many fans were hoping for something similar to the comic book storyline of the same name, it seems that directors, Anthony and Joe Russo have decided to go a different direction with the plot. Instead, Cap’s childhood friend and Winter Soldier, Bucky, appears to be at the center of the conflict between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark. Whether or not he’s really at the heart of the issue remains to be seen, but hey, that’s Black Panther! It’s nice to see him making an appearance. And I won’t lie that it was kind of nice to watch smug Iron Man get his face punched in.
What do you think about the trailer? Any direction you want the movie to take?
Captain America: Civil War stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chadwick Boseman, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Emily VanCamp, and like a zillion other stars.
