Captain America Civil War

We know who’s directing Captain America 3, we know who’s starring in Captain America 3, and we even have some idea of the plot details for Captain America 3. Now we know the title, too.

Marvel Studios revealed at its event today that Captain America 3 will be called Captain America: Civil War, as many had already suspected. (Not, it won’t be Serpent Society as first teased at the event.) Also confirmed was the release date of the movie: May 6, 2016. In addition to Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, it’ll officially debut Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Much of this footage is the same as what we saw in the first trailer, but there’s definitely some new stuff, and a different emphasis, and additional voiceover. Check out the Get on Up trailer 2 below. Read More »
