We’re drawing closer and closer to Marvel’s next big movie release: known colloquially to the fans as Avengers 2.5 due to the copious amounts of heroes being featured, Captain America: Civil War is sure to be action-packed from start to finish. Fans everywhere are already “picking sides” between Team Captain America and Team Iron Man, and previous trailers and promotional images have shown potential viewers which heroes are choosing to align themselves in either corner (no word yet on the preferred affiliations of Baby Groot, however). While we are rumored to get a new Civil War trailer this week, Marvel has already hit us with new stuff to fawn over: a deluge of new character posters featuring the characters who are affiliating with Cap himself.
The entire lineup of posters can be seen below (click on each image in the gallery for glorious full-view action), and the word on the street is that the posters for Team Iron Man will be heading our way later this week. In case you need to update your tally card, the “official” list of affiliations are as follows:
Team Captain America: Cap (Chris Evans), Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd)
Team Iron Man: Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), War Machine (Don Cheadle), Black Widow (Scarlet Johansson), Vision (Paul Bettany), and Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman). Allegedly, Spider-Man (dude) is on the squad as well.
We were also given a new image from the film this week, one of “Team Cap” running into action. This is a similar shot that we’ve seen before, but the inclusion of Ant-Man where he appears to have been previously digitally edited out is what makes the image unique. Could we be in for a similar scenario with Spider-Man filling a CGIed-empty void in the Team Iron Man pictures?
Captain America: Civil War opens May 6 in the United States.
