Captain America: civil War is set to be one of the highest grossing films of all time because a) it’s almost an Avengers film, b) it introduces Black Panther and Tom Holland’s perfect take on Spider-Man, and c) it’s just that good.
Seriously, if I’d seen Civil War before I saw Batman v Superman, even Wonder Woman wouldn’t have raised it above an F. Everything it did wrong, Civil War does right.
The first trailer for Captain America: Civil War premiered tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live. It’s got a lot of intriguing moments: Falcon in the movie version of his more colorful comics costume; Cap reuniting with Bucky Barnes; the growing rift between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark; the first look at Prince T’challa of Wakanda aka Black Panther, and more.
This is an exciting trailer, folks – and it suggests an even more exciting movie. Check it out after the jump. Captain America: Civil War

Marvel Studios has begun production Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. The film has an ambitious arc – ‘after another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.’
Captain America: Civil War will feature appearances by the Avengers cast as well as Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Agent 13/Sharon Carter (Emily Van Camp), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), General Thaddeus ‘Thunderbolt’ Ross (William Hurt), Brock Rumlow/Crossbones (Frank Grillo) and as yet to be revealed characters played by Daniel Brühl and Martin Freeman.
Captain America: is set for release on May 16, 2016. For more, follow the jump.
Three years ago, Joss Whedon’s Marvel’s The Avengers blew everyone away by taking a group off characters who should never have been in the same room together and making us believe that they could save the world together. It was fresh and new and shiny.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is not fresh and new and shiny – but it is a fresh look at why these characters should, in fact, be in the same room even as cracks appear in the team that foreshadow less happy things to come.
