Holy Crap, The First Captain America: Civil War Trailer Is Fantastic

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

The first trailer for Captain America: Civil War is here. It’s Iron Man vs. Captain America and holy crap this looks awesome.


Directed by the Russo Brothers, the film opens May 6. It’s some time after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron and the world thinks superheroes need some kind of supervision. Iron Man agrees, Captain America does not, and that divides the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe right down the middle.

While this first trailer is heavy on the Captain America stuff - Falcon, Widow, Bucky - there’s a whole other side to this movie too. There’s Iron Man, War Machine, the first appearance of Black Panther (who gets a few brief shots in the trailer), as well as Ant-Man, Vision and pretty much everyone minus the Guardians, Hulk and Thor.

And we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention your friendly neighborhood webslinger too, Spider-Man, who’ll appear in this movie played by Tom Holland.

I mean, this is basically Avengers 3 years before Avengers 3 is actually getting made and this trailer only tells a sliver of the story.

Oh, here’s the poster too.


And some awesome GIFS


That’s Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) kicking Bucky/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan)

Hope there’ll be a solid, legit reason for Iron Man being down for law & order when his character is the opposite and Cap’s attitude being “law, schmaws” than simply because some idiot learned the word “irony” and thought that was more important than good or consistent characterization which seemed to be the reason in the comics.

That said, I wonder how the people who keep insisting Cap doesn’t have superstrength (despite four films of him clearly displaying it) are going to rationalize him holding down a helicopter with one arm!
