This is the best time to be a comic book fan. In 2006, a cross over in the comic book world would forever change the landscape. That’s when we saw some of the universes powerful heroes go against each other in a battle of ideologies. So when word broke out many moons ago that an adaptation would be coming to the big screen, the little child in all of us fans let out a squee for excitement. Premiering on the Jimmy Kimmel show, a trailer for Captain America: Civil War has finally made it to us.
When the Marvel Cinematic Universe became a reality, it only meant a matter of time before we got to this exciting moment in time. For months there had been speculation as to when the trailer for Civil War would drop. Many thought that, at this point, the only obvious time would be during the premiere of The Force Awakens. And now, out of now where, the world premiere trailer dropped tonight on television. So without further ado, check out the trailer for Captain America: Civil War.
Okay, so let’s just take a moment to let that all sink in. Now let’s all take a moment to let out our excitement. Over the next several days, people will be dissecting the trailer, frame by frame, but for now, let’s talk about the things we were able to catch. If you stuck around for the end of Ant-Man, you’ll notice that the trailer starts off at that point. From there, it only gets better. Finally, we get our glimpses of General Ross and Black Panther! Also included in the trailer were Falcon, Winter Soldier, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye, War Machine, and the Scarlet Witch. Of course, missing was Spider-Man, but they’re probably saving that for the movie. We may not see the webcrawler until the movie itself.
For those of you who don’t know, Captain America: Civil War will be based on the same comic book cross over from 2006. However, the movie will focus on the incidents from the second Avengers movie where Sokovia kind of got ripped from the ground and nearly tossed into space. The two sides will argue over whether or not heroes need to be “supervised” as the public has begun perceiving them as “vigilantes.”
Captain America: Civil War is due out in theaters on May 6, 2016.
