Your Favorite MCU Reporter Returns For ‘Captain America: Civil War’ News Special
Before Ant-Man hit theaters last year, Marvel released a viral video featuring the return of Leslie Bibb as fictional reporter Christine Everhart, last seen (briefly) on the big screen in Iron Man 2. Everhart is back with a WHIH Newsfront special report in this new viral video for Captain America: Civil War, this time joined by a familiar face from The Daily Show as the pair explore the Avengers’ impact on civilian life, and whether the damage they cause is ultimately worth the lives they save.
Bibb’s Everhart is joined by The Daily Show’s Al Madrigal, who plays the role of political correspondent Will Adams. It’s good to see Everhart back in the MCU, even if it is in the form of a viral video, but it would be great to see her pop up in another Marvel movie proper — even as a cameo.
The focus of her new special report is the very thing that drives the conflict of Civil War: What happens after the Avengers save the day? And is the collateral damage both here and abroad worth it? That’s the key to the inciting incident in Civil War, in which the U.S. government introduces a new initiative to regulate superheroes, causing a serious rift in the Avengers team.
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.
