‘Captain America: Civil War’ International Trailer Is a Bit Shorter, But No Less Sweet
“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.
The new international trailer builds dramatically from the initial confrontation between Steve Rogers and General Ross (William Hurt), incrementally adding glimpses of the action as the fight becomes a legitimate war, dividing the Avengers (sans Thor and Hulk) into rival teams. There’s not much in the way of new footage, but it’s a worthy follow-up to the first trailer.
Robert Downey Jr. definitely looks to be reveling in a far more smarmy and overtly unpleasant version of Tony Stark, while Cap appears downright saintly in comparison. Of course, it’s a bit more complicated than a simple divide between right and wrong.
Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May.
Captain America: Civil War also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan and Don Cheadle, with Chadwick Boseman and Tom Holland making their debut as Black Panther and Spider-Man, respectively. Marvel’s latest epic hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
