There’s this little movie coming out in may or april (depending on where you live) called Captain America: Civil War. It’s the final part in an amazing and kind of strange trilogy. I call it strange as every movie within that trilogy is another genre and it’s not entirely a trilogy when considering the crossovers into The Avengers.
Nonetheless, I enjoyed the first two movies and I’m desperately counting down the days until the latest comes out (only 47 days left). Oh yeah, click the poster to go watch that awesometastic, like that’s even a word.
Warning: there’s going to be quite some GIFs in this post.
In Captain America: Civil War we get to see some of our favourite Marvel heroes divided and clashing with each other in one of the biggest battles we’ve seen thus far (until the entire MCU comes together in Infinity War that is). They are divided in two teams #TeamCap and #TeamIronMan. To be honest, I am more on Iron Man’s side, but I’ll wait until after I’ve seen the movie to make a definitive choice. I think it’s a good thing they’re giving both sides some good reasons as to why they’re opposing each other.
What’s so great about the MCU is that everything is connected. That’s also what they showed in this trailer. The things that happened in previous movies now have implications in this one. Another great thing about this is that we get to see all these great other characters again.
As said I’ve before, Iron Man and Captain America are going head to head and hand to hand as it seems from this next scene.
I don’t think Rhodey will be dead, even though it definitely looks like it in all of the trailers. I just don’t think they would immediately show a character’s death in every trailer. It’s a bit obvious. On the other hand, it would give this dispute even more depth.
We get some more footage of Black Panther in action. He seems like a really powerful and badass characters who’s going to be a major addition to Iron Man’s team.
This scene was also shown in the previous trailer, but it’s also included here and it’s still an amazing scene. The fact that Bucky is willing to shoot Tony in the face and Tony’s reaction to the actual shot (which proves that Robert Downey Jr. is indeed a great actor).
Can we also take a moment to wonder how badass Scarlet Witch is, because she’s able to make Vision, who is supposed to be invincible and extremely powerful, kneel before her.
How cool was this move from Hawkeye and Ant-Man?! The latter was hidden inside that arrow, talk about upgrading your arrows.
Now as to probably the most talked about scene from the trailer, Spider-Man finally made his first appearance in the MCU in the best way possible: by grabbing Cap’s shield and greeting everyone. I’m not entirely sold on his costume, but the moving eyes are awesome.
The next GIF probably best shows what went on in my head whilst watching this trailer.
We are still left in the dark about the villains in this movie. We’ve only seen the slightest of Crossbones and nothing of Baron Zemo. That’s what I first thought would be the case with Spider-Man as well. That they would keep the surprise until you actually go see the movie, though I don’t mind already seeing him.
You can probably tell I’m very excited to see this movie and can’t wait! Are you as excited and what did you think about this trailer and Spider-Man’s inclusion?
I’ll see you later!
