Trailer: Captain America – Civil War

Written by: Johnny Messias

The Marvel behemoth keeps on rolling, with the mega-franchise launching into a major new storyline next year with Captain America: Civil War.

This first trailer hints at the epic schism that will form between our heroes; pitting Chris Evan’s titular hero against Robert Downey’s Iron Man. With two rival factions forming from many of heroes we’ve come to know and love. And Hawkeye.

Let’s see if directors, Anthony and Joe Russo can inject more grit and tension into this episode, following the slightly bland, Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Their form is good after the last Captain America movie. Marvel obviously likes them, so much so the brothers have been given the keys for the next massive Avengers ramadamadingdong double header – coming in 2018, 2019 and for the first time ever: in start to finish IMAX.
