Captain America: Civil War will kick off Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in grand fashion, with an epic battle featuring almost all of the MCU heroes taking sides and fighting each other. Today, we have two new TV spots that tease this epic action, along with two photos, featuring Rhodey (Don Cheadle) and The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). Speaking of Rhodey, New York Daily News also caught up with Don Cheadle, who teases his fate and fan reactions from the trailers.
One of the most intriguing moments of the trailers released thus far show Rhodey in the War Machine armor plummeting from the sky with a hole blown in his chest. We see Tony Stark remove his mask, and while we don't know if Rhodey has passed away or not, at the very least, he appears to be gravely injured. While speaking with New York Daily News, the actor talked about how fans have reacted to that footage, while admitting that things aren't looking so good for Rhodey.
"I'm on Twitter, so I've gotten a few people going, 'Rhodey better not be dead, son. I'm going to be so mad.' Or 'I'm done with this thing if Rhodey's dead.' But that's cool, I like that people get so upset about it. I like that in a Marvel movie people are able to evoke such emotion. It does look bad for Rhodey."
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.
