This is EPIC! Just looking at the latest Captain America: Civil War promo art is almost more thrilling than the first trailer that arrived a few weeks ago. Almost. It shows us all of Marvel's greatest superheroes as they go to war against each other in what is being referred to as the 'Splash Page' fight. As you can see in the image below, each member of the Avengers has been teamed-up with an opposing foe. And it promises to be one of the greatest big screen fights ever seen in any movie.
This stunning Captain America: Civil War art arrives courtesy of Andy Park and Ryan Meinerding. It will be featured in the latest issue of Total Film magazine. And not only does it offer us up a great ground level view of this battle, we also get to learn some exciting new details about the movie itself.
As we previously learned, Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow will be fighting on team Iron Man, and she is seen here going up against the much smaller Ant-Man, played by Paul Rudd. Black Widow, who has been a long time alley of Steve Rogers is going rogue, and sides with Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) over the Superhero Registration Act, known as The Sokovia Accords. Scarlett Johansson reveals to Total Film that her deadly assassin is 'trying to pick up the pieces of her life'. And the actress promises it will get messy.
After his brush with Falcon in Ant-Man, Scott Lang is entering the Avengers fray for good. And it seems he and Falcon have patched things up between films. Marvel's tiniest hero is siding with Captain America. Newcomer to the MCU Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), on the other hand, is siding with Iron Man. About bringing in this fan-favorite Wakanda based hero, Marvel head honcho Chadwick Boseman had this to say.
"We needed fresh eyes, [somebody] who wasn't embedded with the Avengers."
The Winter Soldier, played by Sebastian Stan, was last seen in the post credits scene in Ant-Man, trapped in a vice. Now that he has recovered his memories, Bucky Barnes is back on the good side of the fight. Possibly. It is teased that he may turn traitor and ditch his old friend Steve for a different path. Don't expect that traitor aspect to seep into the persona of War Hammer, though. Tony Stark's old pal played by Don Cheadle, is sticking by his friend's side. In the trailer, we see War Hammer has taken a massive hit, and is injured quite badly, possibly in this fight seen here, where he faces off against the Falcon. Some speculate that this may even be the end of the line for the character.
Also seen in this awesome spread is Captain America and Iron Man going at it fists first. And we also get to see Hawkeye entering the fray, as Scarlet Witch battles her future lover Vision in what may be this image's greatest display of individual powers. What do you think? Did this teaser just get you super hyped for Captain America: Civil War?
