The trailer doesn’t exactly exude a Civil “War” but I think we get where it’s going. After a few viewings of this trailer I began to like it more and more. This wasn’t a trailer full of Spider-Man cameos and surprise appearances and it reminded us that, even though it’s got Civil War in the title, this is a still Captain America’s movie.
I would have probably renamed this to Captain America: Civil Dispute, but that wouldn’t have sold many tickets. The action looks like it’s as grand as Winter Solider and the story is picking up from there which is great for continuity. Captain America films have had the most heart in their plots and that trend is holding strong. Bucky is now free from Hydra’s clutches and Cap still isn’t fond of the government.
On the other side of the coin, we see a new hero in T’Challa aka Black Panther make an appearance and one can only assume he will be on Tony’s side due to their similarities in intellect and wealth among other things, but that can easily change as he may take on the role Spider-Man did in the comics. I just pray that the trailer is an honest precursor to what the tone of the film will be because this looks fascinating.
Questions have been answered about how they are going to divide these two Avengers juggernauts e.i. Iron Man and Cap and that will be through what the comics gave us, a limitation act on superheroes. Clearly Stark is for the limiting of what these heroes do and Cap – from the events of Winter Soldier – doesn’t exactly like the government right now.
My temper was lowered the more I had heard news about this film, but it’s nice to know that this is clearly still a Captain America movie and not just some orgy of every Marvel hero they can think of. Of course, this is only the first trailer and there have been tons of confirmations as to who will appear in the film, stay tuned.
