Captain America: Civil War's Latest Promo Is Its Weirdest and Most Patriotic

Seriously, there has been way too much footage from Captain America: Civil War shown lately, amongst the millions and millions of TV spots and clips. But stuff like this goofy new promo from Chris Evans and a few friends is exactly the sort of silly advertising we can get behind.

The short clip released today through Mashable is simply Evans delivering an impassioned recap of everything Steve Rogers stands for as Captain America... while Robert Downey Jr, Anthony Mackie, Chadwick Boseman, and Elizabeth Olsen solemnly file in behind him, humming Battle Hymn of the Republic. There’s also a delightfully absurd Sebastian Stan cameo to boot.


It’s strangely rousing—even to a non-American like myself!—but it’s a lot more fun that getting snippets of footage doled out to us in TV spot snippets. If the oodles of adverts haven’t yet drilled it into your mind, Captain America: Civil War hits theaters tomorrow in the U.S., May 6th.
