We're only a few weeks away from seeing Captain America: Civil War explode into theaters, and from the sounds of it, this Marvel epic will be the blockbuster of the summer. Over the weekend, we got to see Falcon, Captain America and Scarlet Witch taking on a set of bad guys in the first clip released during the MTV Movie Awards. Now comes the second clip, and it's pretty funny. It was shown on last night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Jimmy Kimmel Live! is hosting a series of Marvel themed episodes all this week. And while tonight will bring Benedict Cumberbatch to the stage for a first look at the Doctor Strange trailer, last night was all about #TeamCaptainAmerica and the actors behind it. Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie and Paul Rudd were on hand to show off an exciting moment from the movie which proved to be a real crowd pleaser.
In this second full-length clip, we get reintroduced to Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man. And the early reactions indicate that this particular character is a real scene stealer. Here, Ant-Man meets Team Captain America for the first time. And he decides this is the side of the Sokovia Accords he wants to be on. Jeremy Renner is the one who introduces Scott to Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson. All they need is a little coffee to get him motivated.
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.
Team Iron Man includes Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Vision (Paul Bettany), War Machine (Don Cheadle) and the new character T'challa (Chadwick Boseman), who will make his debut in this movie before starring in Black Panther, set for release on February 16, 2018. 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). Marvel's Captain America: Civil War also stars Frank Grillo as Crossbones, William Hurt as Thaddeus Ross, Daniel Brühl as the villainous Baron Zemo and Tom Holland as Spider-Man.
Anthony Russo & Joe Russo are directing with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D'Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee are the executive producers. The screenplay is by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel's Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016.
