Ever since the first movie in this Marvel Cinematic Universe, 2008’s Iron Man, the studio has been moving mountains to bring all of its top heroes together. In a few weeks, though, everything will be torn apart. "Divided We Fall" has been the mantra of Captain America: Civil War, and from the looks of this new trailer, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans) are taking a tumble, and bringing their teammates down with them. Watch the new trailer for Civil War now:
Holy hell, it's SPIDER-MAN!!!!!!!
At the tail end of the new trailer, Marvel finally unveils its first look at Tom Holland in his Spider-Man costume. The wall-crawler steals Cap's shield, webs his hands together, and poses with his shield. It's a BRILLIANT introduction to the character, and the sight of him holding Cap's shield will send shivers down any Marvel fan's spine!
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, the brain trust behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Civil War pits Tony Stark and Steve Rogers on opposite sides of a political hot potato. The Sokovia Accords are passed following the actions of The Avengers in Age of Ultron. A paranoid Stark begins to feel that superheroes of the world might need more regulation, while Cap – having endured the infiltration of S.H.I.E.L.D. by HYDRA – isn’t ready to put his shield in someone else’s hands.
On a side note, though still related, Captain America: Civil War also explores how Steve Rogers is coming to the aide of his former friend Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), who served as a HYDRA assassin for years but – according to the Ant-Man end credits – has broken free of his brainwashing and now seems eager for Cap’s assistance. From what we can tell, this also will drive a wedge between Captain America and Iron Man.
During the week, we have been passing along a ton of information from the set of Civil War explaining why both sides believe that they are in the "right" with regards to what the government needs to do with super-powered beings. And yet, while this trailer does a great job of selling the action, it ALSO establishes why Team Cap and Team Iron Man have a foot in the "right" side of the debate.
Decide for yourself when Captain America: Civil War opens in theaters on May 6.
