Marvel Reveals New ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Promo Image
Since the very first announcement of Captain America: Civil War, we’ve be imagining the exciting ways Marvel could promote this battle between Captain America and Iron Man. We even suggested the tagline “Whose Side Are You On?” Turns out we weren’t very far off. Jeremy Renner tweeted out a first look at promo art for the upcoming Marvel movie, which features Captain America and Iron Man side-by-side with that aforementioned quote right in between them.
Yesterday, Renner (who is one of the many cast members of Civil War) tweeted a look at a gift from Marvel to the cast and crew of the film:
Because it’s small and black and white, we took the liberty of recreating it in color up above.
What exactly that is (did Marvel just give them a mini-poster?) is unclear, but it may be a hint at what Marvel is planning for the actual marketing campaign (and with Comic-Con just around the corner, it’s possible we could see some early teaser posters be making an appearance).
What’s really surprising is that Renner shared this image on Twitter. Given Marvel’s penchant for secrecy, we’d think this kind of thing would be kept offline, but we’re happy that it found it’s way to us one way or another.
Filming on Captain America: Civil War continues in Atlanta with Iron Man, Captain America, Falcon, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Vision, Scarlet Witch, War Machine, Black Panther, Ant-Man, Agent 13 and even the new Spider-Man (who has yet to be cast) joining the party.
Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
Captain America: Civil War opens in theaters on May 6, 2016.
