We’re still a few weeks away from the debut of Captain America: Civil War, but tonight brings screenings for fans in 25 major cities around the United States. That means you should probably start to get a little more leery about spoilers on social media, but the good news is that the early buzz has already indicated that the movie is pretty damn spectacular.
However, the cast of Captain America: Civil War is already starting their promotional tour, and they kicked things off with a takeover of Jimmy Kimmel Live this week.
