“Sorry Tony. You know I wouldn’t do this if I had any other choice…”
The first trailer for Captain America: Civil War is finally here and the fight is on between the First Avenger and Iron Man.
Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. revealed the trailer during their Tuesday night appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, along with 3 new official posters!
The trailer dramatically highlights the growing tension between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark, which will divide the Avengers and pit them against one another in what could be Marvel’s most epic film yet.
The two used to be “friends,” but it’s clear in the trailer that the Cap is more concerned with his loyalty to Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan).
During the trailer, we see that the Avengers that have aligned themselves with Cap include Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olson), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and The Winter Soldier (Stan).
We also get a glimpse of Iron Man’s team, which includes War Machine (Don Cheadle), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Vision (Paul Bettany).
The trailer also gives fans their first look at Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) in action, who has his own upcoming feature film set for release in 2018.
No sign of Tom Holland, who is set to make his MCU debut as Spider-Man ahead of his new solo film, but there’s already plenty here to chew on.
While fans have shown some concern about there being too many characters in Civil War, we’ve heard great things about the script, and the Russo brothers previously directed The Winter Soldier, which was easily the best Marvel film since 2012’s The Avengers.
Glad to see the amazing fight choreography from Winter Soldier seems to be back in full force in this film, as well as the darker political thriller feel. It should be absolutely stellar with the cast of characters involved.
The first official posters for Civil War, tout the tagline “Divided We Fall”:
Prior to these, we’d only seen concept art for the film, showing the team’s respective sides.
Here’s the official synopsis:
“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.
Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
So! Whose side are you on?
