We’ve still got a couple months to go until Iron Man and Captain America face off in Captain America: Civil War, but sooner or later you’re gonna have to pick a side. And to help you do that, Marvel’s just dropped a nice big batch of high-quality photos. Will you be swayed by the hero shot of poor sad Bucky standing in the cold without a coat? Or won over by Black Widow’s novel method of getting around crowded city traffic? Maybe you’ll go completely unorthodox and declare yourself Team Russo Brothers, once some of the behind-the-scenes snaps remind you who’s really pulling the strings around here. Check out the latest Captain America: Civil War stills after the jump.
Marvel unveiled the latest bunch of Captain America: Civil War stills on their website. Some are behind-the-scenes photos of Chris Evans or Sebastian Stan or Scarlett Johansson chatting with the filmmakers; others are stills from the movie featuring favorite characters like Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie). And no, there’s still no Spider-Man in sight.
Every Marvel movie promises to “change the Marvel universe as we know it,” or words to that effect, but we’ve got reason to believe there are some genuinely big changes coming to the MCU with Civil War. If nothing else, we can definitely expect it to introduce some significant new players like Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), both of whom will be going off on solo adventures within the next couple of years.
It still concerns me, slightly, that Civil War seems to have so much going on. The last thing we need is another Avengers: Age of Ultron situation, where an otherwise entertaining movie sagged under the weight of a dozen major characters and half a dozen storylines, including ones carried over from earlier movies and ones intended to set up future movies. But the trailers so far have been encouragingly Captain America-centric. If the filmmakers can keep their focus on a single strong character, that should go a long way toward streamlining this complicated tale and unwieldy cast. And in the meantime, this giant roster means we get to have lots of fun arguing with our friends about whether we’re Team Cap or Team Iron Man. (Even if the correct answer is obviously Team Cap. I mean, c’mon, guys.)

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.
