Marvel Studios is known for their amazing movie adaptations of classic comic books and judging from its latest trailer, “Captain America: Civil War” will be no exception.
The movie trailer, was released on Youtube on November 24, 2015. The film features Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) better known as Captain America and Iron Man on opposite sides of the battle field. The divide between the Avengers creates a scene every fan is excited for - Captain America fighting Iron Man.
The first trailer of three, entitled “The War Begins,” starts off with Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes (portrayed by Sebastian Stans). Captain America’s previous movies “The First Avenger,” and “Winter Soldier” establish the connection between the two characters. Rogers and Barnes were childhood friends who both fought in the second World War. Barnes was captured by Hydra during the war and became an assassin for around 70 years until the events in “Winter Soldier” occurred. Marvel’s official plot descriptions says that the movie picks up right after the second Avengers movie Age of Ultron. Captain America leads a new Avengers team and after another international incident involving the Avengers there is a lot of political pressure to create some form of accountability.
Much like in the 2006 comic-book the Superhero Registration Act was created so all superheros were forced to register with the government. This creates a divide between our heros because many do not want to put that much faith in the government by registering. Iron Man, who is still guilt-ridden by civilian casualties from both "Avengers" movies, suffers from severe PTSD from his near death experience in the first "Avengers", has taken it upon himself to be the face of the Superhero Registration Act.
In the trailer, you see Rogers conflicted with being the good soldier he was trained to be, and doing what he believes is right. In the end however, he will do whatever it takes to help his childhood friend, even if that means turning his back on his team. The audience gets to see the First Avenger like never before as he takes on the role of a vigilante.
One of the many great things about Marvel movies is the interconnection plot lines. During the “Avengers” and “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Rogers and Stark clearly do not get along as well as the other Avengers. This form of rivalry and banter is apparent in the trailer with Stark’s line to Rogers, “Sometimes I want to punch you in your perfect teeth.” The epic battle between these two heroes is years in the making, and thus “Civil War” is an incredibly anticipated film.
Captain America and Iron Man are not the only superheroes that appear in the movie. Civil War’s cast is full of iconic superheros such as Black Widow played by Scarlett Johansson and Hawkeye, who is played by Jeremy Renner. Chadwick Boseman plays the Black Panther in the film and appears in the trailer wearing his Vibranium suit. The Black Panther movie is to be released in 2018. Other beloved heroes return such as the War Machine (Don Cheadle), the Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen.) William Hurt plays General Thunderbolt Ross who seems to be the government face of the Superhero Registration Act. Other characters who didn't make the trailer include Ant Man (Paul Rudd), Spider-Man (Tom Holland), and Vision (Paul Bettany). With such a full cast the Hulk, played by Mark Ruffalo will not be in "Civil War", but may be in "Thor: Ragnarok".
The film “Captain America: Civil War,” directed by Joe Russo and Anthony Russo is set to be released on May 6, 2016.
