This has been a big week for Captain America: Civil War. The world premiere was held in the heart of Hollywood this past Monday, with the entire massive cast appearing on the red carpet. And Jimmy Kimmel Live! has been hosting specially themed Marvel shows all this week. On Monday, the comedian welcomed #TeamCaptainAmerica. Then on Tuesday, Benedict Cumberbatch showed up to show off the first trailer for Doctor Strange. Then last night, Robert Downey Jr. and his #TeamIronMan arrived to talk about the movie. They also brought along a special action-packed clip.
This particular scene is especially exciting, as it shows Sebastian Stan as The Winter Solider having to square off against the Members of Iron Man's team, who are all upholding the Sokovia Accords. On Tony Stark's side are War Machine and Black Widow. During this appearance, Robert Downey Jr. also teased a possible role in the upcoming 2017 Spider-Man reboot which has been given the official title Homecoming. Though, he's not giving a definitive answer on that just yet. He simply states the following.
"Perhaps I will, we don't have a contract yet."
Marvel's 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.
