We’ve had a very Captain America: Civil War-heavy few days here at /Film, what with those character posters and that set visit report and all of those awesome interviews and whatnot. But this may just be the highlight of the week. Marvel Studios has just revealed the latest Captain America: Civil War trailer, teasing the epic clash between Cap (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) that threatens to tear apart the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. Check it out after the jump.
Captain America: Civil War Trailer
The cast and crew involved with Captain America: Civil War have been very insistent that this is a Captain America movie, not an Avengers movie. Still, it’s definitely got an Avengers-sized cast. Team Cap consists of Bucky (Sebastian Stan), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd); Team Iron Man counts Rhodey (Don Cheadle), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), and Vision (Paul Bettany).
As exciting as it is to see all these characters band together in films like Age of Ultron, it could be even more interesting to watch them battle each other over genuine differences (as opposed to, say, because one of them’s been brainwashed by a trickster god). Especially now that Spider-Man (Tom Holland) — arguably the most iconic superhero in Marvel’s entire stable — is also involved. And although pretty much every Marvel movie promises it’ll be the one to change the Marvel universe as we know it, or some such nonsense, there’s reason to believe the effects of Captain America: Civil War will be felt long after the credits have rolled.
Captain America: Civil War also stars Daniel Brühl, Emily VanCamp, Frank Grillo, William Hurt, and Martin Freeman. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, it opens May 6.
