Captain America Civil War Reactions

Last night brought the first screening of Captain America: Civil War for members of the press in Los Angeles who are attending a press junket this weekend. We’ll have coverage of that after this weekend, including an interview with Kevin Feige. But first and foremost, you’re probably curious about how this epic battle of superheroes turned out.

For now, there’s on embargo on full reviews for Captain America: Civil War until April 13th, which is when the movie screens at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. Thankfully, Disney and Marvel have allowed some reactions to hit the web by way of Twitter. The good news is that the movie seems to be pretty spectacular, with plenty of praise for Tom Holland as Spider-Man and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. Read the brief Captain America Civil War reviews below.

Initial Reactions Are Full of Praise

Here’s a round of initial reactions to the movie, with a lot of praise for the airport sequence where our superheroes have their first battle. Sounds like it’s going to be an action sequence for the ages.

How Are Spider-Man and Black Panther?

People really went our of their way to say how spectacular Tom Holland is as the new Spider-Man, and it sounds like he might even steal the movie. In addition, Civil War seems to be a good start for Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, which bodes well for his eventual solo movie.

Batman v Superman Comparisons

There were some inevitable comparisons to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which are bound to rile up those who feel the  need to create a conflict between DC and Marvel fans. Because there’s absolutely no way someone can like both, right?

There Do Seem to Be Some Problems Though

While the majority of the reactions were almost overwhelmingly positive, there were some shortcomings to be noted from some press members who still mostly enjoyed the movie:

Finally, don’t be fooled by a batch of negative tweets like this from @Nickrob, because he actually didn’t see the movie and is just trying to mess with people on the internet.

Don’t get me wrong, these are amusing tweets to mess with people, but we just want to make sure you know they’re not legitimate critiques or reactions to the movie.

If it seems like the movie is screening pretty early for press before the rest of the public can see it, that’s because the cast, directors Anthony & Joe Russo and Kevin Feige are heading out on a world tour after this weekend, so they needed to get the domestic press day out of the way early.

Anyway, it sounds like Captain America: Civil War really delivers the summer superhero blockbuster were were hoping for. Plenty more will be seeing the film next week at CinemaCon, and there’s a slew of advanced screenings for fans in some major cities across the country happening on April 14th. We’ll likely get some more buzz after those screenings, so stay tuned for more.

Otherwise, Captain America: Civil War arrives on May 6.
