Last summer, in the weeks and months leading into the last Marvel Phase Two movie Ant-Man, a new series of viral videos debuted, featuring the MCU character Christine Everhart, played by Leslie Bibb. The videos, which were formatted as WHIH TV news reports, shed new light on Scott Lang's (Paul Rudd) backstory before the movie hit theaters. Today, Christine Everhart returns with a new WHIH report that ties into Captain America: Civil War, arriving in theaters May 6.
The WHIH News report, dubbed "The World, the Hero Leaves Behind," examines the "cost" of The Avengers' heroic exploits, in the aftermath of the Sokovia destruction as seen in last year's Avengers: Age of Ultron. Christine Everhart is joined by another political correspondent, Will Adams, as they both argue whether or not The Avengers should be able to operate independently, or if there should be some oversight from the government and other world leaders. Of course, this issue rests at the heart of Captain America: Civil War, which fractures the MCU as we know it.
Steve Rogers leads a newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity in Captain America: Civil War, which is set in the aftermath of Avengers: Age of Ultron. 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.
This adventure splits the Marvel universe in half, with heroes joining forces with either Captain America or Iron Man. Team Iron Man includes Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Vision (Paul Bettany), War Machine (Don Cheadle) and the new characters T'challa (Chadwick Boseman) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland). 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). Captain America: Civil War also stars Frank Grillo as Crossbones and William Hurt, reprising his role from The Incredible Hulk as Thaddeus Ross.
This video also reveals that WHIH will have an entire week of "coverage" devoted to these issues, so be sure to stay tuned for more videos from Captain America: Civil War. It isn't known if Leslie Bibb's Christine Everhart will actually be featured in the movie, but it's worth noting that she didn't appear in Ant-Man after those viral videos debuted last summer. Take a look at this new WHIH news report from Christine Everhart below, and stay tuned for more viral videos from Captain America: Civil War, in theaters May 6.
