In just a few short hours, fans will finally get to see Captain America: Civil War on the big screen, as the first Marvel Phase 3 movie hits theaters for Thursday night sneak preview screenings. This superhero adventure will introduce two new heroes fans have been waiting to see in the MCU for many years, Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman). Of course, with any superhero movie of this magnitude, there will plenty of merchandise out there for fans to pick up, and earlier today, a new Spider-Man action figure was unveiled for the first time.
The Captain America Facebook page hosted a live unboxing of the new Captain America: Civil War Marvel Legends action figure set, where Marvel's Ryan Penagos, known as Agent M on Twitter, showcased this set for the first time. The set includes six-inch action figures of Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Spider-Man, which will be available for purchase on August 1 on HasbroToyShop.com. Fans will notice that Spidey is holding the Captain America shield, an homage to a scene from the movie which we saw in the trailer that debuted in March. The set also comes with a number of accessories, including interchangable heads, weapons and much more.
Marvel's Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps-one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel's Civil War opens in U.S. theaters tonight.
This adventure splits the Marvel universe in half, with heroes joining forces with either Captain America or Iron Man. Team Iron Man includes Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Vision (Paul Bettany), War Machine (Don Cheadle) and the new characters T'challa (Chadwick Boseman) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland}). Team Cap includes Captain America (Chris Evans), The Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). Captain America: Civil War also stars Frank Grillo as Crossbones and William Hurt, reprising his role from The Incredible Hulk as Thaddeus Ross.
Anthony Russo and Joe Russo direct Captain America: Civil War from a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. The writers and directors will team up again later this year when production starts on the massive Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Avengers: Infinity War Part II, which are set for release in 2018 and 2019, respectively.
