Well, movie fans, it’s getting into the Spring season. Winter’s bitter cold is fading away for rainy days and flowers blooming in warmer weather. We are also looking to the spring slate of movies that’s headlined by one of two superhero showdowns this year, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The second will come this May as the thirteenth movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has Earth’s Mightest Heroes divided and fighting one another. After new promotional posters for Team Captain America and Team Iron Man being released online, a new full trailer was released today and it didn’t disappoint.
One year after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America (Chris Evans) leads the new team of Avengers but when another international incident occurs, resulting in collateral damage, this prompts politicians to form a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to call in the team. When Steve Rogers attempts to protect his friend, Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) from this act, he is brought into conflict with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr). This results in the fracturing of the Avengers into two opposing factions – one led by Rogers, who wishes to operate without regulation, and the other by Stark, who supports government oversight-while the world is threatened by a new enemy.
This film has all the makings of another Avengers movie with actors reprising their roles from previous Marvel films, building this film into a star-studded event. Team Captain America, led by the First Avenger, consists of Bucky Barnes, The Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd).
Their opposing team led by Stark’s Iron Man consists of War Machine (Don Cheadle), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Vision (Paul Bettany) and the debuting Prince of Wakanda, Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman).
From this trailer, all hell is ready to break loose as the heroes battle over what is right and wrong as far as how they are to be regulated and held responsible for their actions. This shows more of the Black Panther in action with Barnes being his main target. Captain America and Iron Man come down to a fist fight and the heroes charging into battle against each other near the end. But that’s not the only surprise as a new hero swings in and Tom Holland officially joins the MCU as a certain Web Slinger.
I hope you all enjoy the preview and if you want to leave any comments, please do! Captain America: Civil War comes out on May 6, 2016.
