It may not be called Avengers 3, but the newest Captain America film looks to hold almost the entire MCU in one picture…
Jeez, Marvel, can’t you give a fan a break? Here I am, trying to do some late night binging of Jessica Jones, and then my Twitter blows up with news of a brand new trailer. Not just any teaser either, but over two minutes of footage from the next Marvel Studios epic, Captain America: Civil War! Take a look below, but be warned that there’s way more to take in than one viewing can satisfy…
I mean seriously, can you even keep up with everything in there? You’ve got Cap and Falcon hunting down Bucky, you’ve got returning Hulk nemesis General Thunderbolt Ross as the heavy, every Avenger not named Thor or Hulk, and the debut of god damn T’Challa himself, Black-FUCKING-Panther. It’s too much for words.
By the way, did you notice the quick way they establish that T’Challa can outrun Cap? Pretty slick.
The trailer picks right up where the Ant-Man teaser ended, and the set-up seems both similar to the comics and wholly different. The government wants to regulate superheroes, Steve Rogers disagrees with Tony Stark, and the heroes of the world choose sides. Only this time Bucky Barnes seems to be the inciting incident, and it’s a world with about a dozen heroes instead of hundreds. Oh, and Spider-Man’s hanging around somewhere, but he’s as visible as Luke Skywalker in a Force Awakens trailer. The important information is that the line has been drawn, and it’s time to choose sides.
Did this trailer have a similar effect on you? Are you disappointed to only get a tease of Black Panther? Do you fear Gen. Ross is going to be a red Hulk by the film’s finale? Can either Tony or Steve survive this ordeal better than they did in the comics? I want to know your thoughts in the comments!
