Football games are fun and all, but the real reason they exist is to show us new trailers, like this fast and informative one for the next Marvel film…
DC Entertainment has given us so many fresh looks at Batman, Superman, Harley Quinn, and the rest that we’d been waiting patiently to see what Marvel has planned for the May release of the next Captain America sequel. Well, during the Super Bowl, Marvel Studios gave us our first look at Civil War since last November. And while it’s shorter, it’s filled with a ton of new stuff…
The very fast paced trailer barely gives you a minute to breath. And while that speed might be because Super Bowl ads are crazy expense even at 15 seconds, it also helped raise the tension for a film already dedicated to super infighting. Just look at this new deadly confrontation between Tony and Bucky.
Not just that, but we get even more of an insight into each heroes motivation, making this feel more like an ensemble film than ever. If Captain America weren’t in the title, this could’ve easily been call Avengers: Civil War. We even get a great shot of Cap and Bucky ready to ambush Iron Man.
And finally we get our most explicit shot yet of the two teams facing off. You see who is on whose side, even getting our first look yet at Vision in the film. Of course, Spider-Man could be hiding just off screen, but I guess we’ll have to wait a little longer to see that.
Did this Super Bowl ad leave you hungry for more Civil War footage? Have you listened to our Civil War Primer podcast? Have any other shots? Get united together in the comments and let us know! (And if you’re looking to learn about Civil War, why not buy some of the comics in the links below?)
