First Captain America: Civil War Trailer Debuts


Captain-America-Civil-WarSo the first official trailer for Captain America: Civil War debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight and...well, just look at it.

Split loyalties. Broken friendships. Captain America (And Bucky) vs Iron Man. And yes...T'Challa...Black Panther.

He's not going to be the focus of this movie but I have to admit, it feels good to see several good looks of T'Challa (played by Chadwick Boseman) in action in this trailer. The scene with him outrunning Captain America and going after Bucky is exactly what I want to see. I'm taking a guess that T'Challa is after Bucky for something that he did while he was under the control of Hydra. Maybe killing T'Challa's father T'Chaka? No matter the reason its just really good to see a character that everyone has been asking for. He looks good and hopefully this will hold us over until February of 2018.

They're really going all-in with the Tony vs Steve theme of Civil War and from the trailer, it works. Everyone is going to be talking about that final scene with Cap & Bucky teaming up again Iron Man but to me, the real defining moment is this exchange:

Steve: "Sorry Tony. You know I wouldn't do this if I had any other choice...but he's my friend"

Tony: "So was I"

Next year is going to be a busy time. We get: Deadpool, Suicide SquadBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men Apocalypse and Dr. Strange. I fully expect there to be whining and crying and thinkpiecing about "Superhero fatigue" and "Comic Book Movie Overload." But I'll be honest. I don't care about any of that. I see these movies and I turn into a kid again. I love it.

Captain America: Civil War hits theaters May 6, 2016.

*Just to let folks know, this is different than the footage shown at D23. That footage opened with a scene with Falcon deploying his Red Wing drone and we got a fight with Crossbones. It also had less action scenes. Oh and this trailer didn't show Scott Lang who had a hilarious scene in the D23 footage.
