“Do you really wanna punch your way out of this?” That’s what Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow asks Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers as a civil disagreement between Cap and Iron Man develops into all out war in the new international trailer for Captain America: Civil War. It’s a little shorter and more streamlined than the first official domestic trailer, but that doesn’t make it any less effective — in fact, this one might be better than the first.
Last week Marvel debuted the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War, forgoing the usual mysterious teaser and “first look” images in favor of having Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans just drop the full preview during Jimmy Kimmel Live! As you might expect, the trailer broke at least one record, gathering the most views in 24 hours — for a Marvel trailer, anyway.
With Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans promising a big surprise on Jimmy Kimmel Live, we knew it had to be something special — that something is the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War. Not a teaser, but an actual, full trailer, dramatically highlighting the growing divide between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark, which will divide the Avengers and pit them against one another in what could be Marvel's most epic film yet.
It’s been kind of a big week for Marvel — we haven’t really covered it here, but the company had a bit of a shakeup, as Marvel Studios disengaged from Marvel Entertainment, with Kevin Feige taking the movie end of things over to Disney and gaining more control over the MCU. On the heels of that major news, Chris Evans has revealed that he’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Clearly things are pretty good over at Marvel right now.
It’s been a few months since the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but Marvel isn’t done providing us with new materials from the film. The blockbuster sequel is hitting DVD and Blu-ray in a little over a month, but you can check out a clips from one of the bonus features right now — as well as a little Black Panther easter egg you might have missed the first time around.
And that’s a wrap…for now. Captain America: Civil War has completed principal filming, and now the post-production process (and our long march to next May) begins. The film shot primarily at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, with additional filming taking place in Berlin (hello, Baron Zemo) and Puerto Rico. The news was delivered by Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito, while additional, supplementary filming will likely occur sometime over the next few months or so.
Captain America: Civil War will be the cinematic incarnation of those early morning debates you used to have with your friends: which superhero would win in a fight? We’ve known that the main plot of the film would find Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers facing off against Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and that the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be torn between them, but now we know where those fractures lie. So, who is Team Captain America and who is Team Iron Man?
Captain America: Civil War seems like it could be another Avengers installment with so many members of the MCU reprising their roles for Cap’s third outing. But that’s kind of the point, since this film is primed to make major waves in the Marvel universe, completely altering the future of our heroes. New set photos definitely confirm how much of a superhero party this is, with Jeremy Renner, Robert Downey Jr., Paul Rudd and more hanging out on set.
Captain America: Civil War continues to film outdoors in Atlanta, which is currently standing in for the fictional African nation of Wakanda, home to the Black Panther. We brought you a first look at Frank Grillo as Crossbones, the new villain, and today you can get a look at Crossbones and Captain America in a major fight scene, including some video from the set!
Captain America: Civil War has been filming on the streets of Atlanta this month with nothing too exciting to report so far from the star-studded cast. That’s about to change, as reports have come in that yesterday’s scenes include a major funeral set at a downtown church. So, which Marvel character is about to bite the big one?
