The good guys are the bad guys in Captain America: Civil War. It all depends on which side you're on! Captain America has his own team, challenged to a big brawl by Iron Man and his loyal legion of soldiers in the latest promo art. Who will win? Who will lose? And who will die? Those are all questions that will be answered this May, when Captain America: Civil War not only kicks off Marvel Phase 3 but also the summer moviegoing season.
The first new image comes courtesy of The Disney Store, and is another variation on the Team Stark Vs Team Rogers iconography that is being used to sell this Marvel movie home. On one side we have Captain America leading Ant-Man, The Winter Soldier, Hawkeye, Falcon and Agent 13 into battle. They are ready to square off against Tony and his pals Vision, Black Panther, War Machine and Black Widow (who may be working as a double agent). As you can see, these two teams are fairly well matched up.
It is heavily speculated that Captain America: Civil War will drop a new trailer during the Super Bowl, but that hasn't been confirmed or denied by Disney and Marvel. It's believed that a new theatrical one-sheet poster may also debut around the same time, which will likely feature both of these teams going head to head. It's obvious that's how Marvel intends to sell the movie: Heroes vs Heroes.
The second batch of new promo art features two individual banners featuring each team. The first gives us a new look at Cap and his pals, which has a better shot of Agent 13 but no Ant-Man. The second one features Tony Stark alongside his loyal army. Though, there is no Spider-Man in sight. A third image appears to be from an unidentified toy package, and gives us a look at Black Widow, War Machine and Black Panther unified for a fight.
Directed by Anthony & Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain. Starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Chadwick Boseman, Emily VanCamp, Daniel Brühl, Frank Grillo, William Hurt, and Martin Freeman, Captain America: Civil War is set for release on May 6, 2016. Take a look at the latest images.
