Arguably the main event of the superhero film-fest that is 2016, Captain America: Civil War has been an event long gestating. Long tensions between these characters and their impact on the world have been building on these heroes and Civil War is the result and explosion of some of these events. The invasion of New York, the infiltration of shield, and some more key happenings that are seeded around the MCU. While this movie is undoubtedly a response to Batman v Superman, and while I still contend I greatly enjoyed Batman v Superman, not only is this the best Marvel movie ever made, but I would also add it’s the best superhero movie since 2008’s The Dark Knight. Marvel has made their 5-star, Civil War is brimming with some of the best action I’ve ever seen, an excellent character study amongst the heroes, and further propels the Marvel universe into new and meaningful territory. This one is for the books.
Marvel Studios revealed the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War via Jimmy Kimmel last night. While Civil War resembles one of Marvel’s most established stories in the Marvel Universe, the movie’s take is somewhat different.
Right off the presses of Age of Ultron another huge Marvel event will occur in a little less than a year. That’s right; Captain America: Civil War. Civil War is one of the most infamous Marvel stories, pitting heroes against one another and giving two different groups that each hold a certain view and are very strongly for their view. Thus far Marvel has cast nearly every character from The Avengers with the exception of Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk) and Chris Helmsworth (Thor). We also have the new inclusion of Martin Freeman who many of us know as Doctor John Watson from Sherlock or Bilbo Baggins from The Hobbit movies.
