How are you doing today guys? I just came here to share the latest big trailer that just dropped. Yes, I rarely touch upon trailers for movies, television or games, but this time I felt that somethign that I really wanted to talk about dropped. As the title of the post suggests, this is the recently (last night) released trailer for the highly anticipated “Captain America: Civil War”. So here we go!
I first off wanted to say that I was a huge fan of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and was therefore incredibly happy to see that the Russo brothers who directed that movie would be returning for this one because “The Winter Soldier” was an awesome movie. It was dark, it was badass and it was intense and it looks like this new one might be very intense as well. I would put it like this: the last “Cap” movie I felt was kind of like a mix of “Metal Gear Solid”, “The Rock” and of course “Captain America” which really sounds like the best combination ever.
So what is the plot of the movie? Well it is basically a retelling of the classic “Civil War” comic, only without the rest of the Marvel universe. That’s right, since the rights of the characters are split up between several movie studios, you will not get to see characters like Wolverine or the Fantastic Four. But the basic plot of the “Civil War” is that the government have gotten sick of superpowered beings (and Iron Man) running around in a very uncontrolled manner and doing their thing, too destructive and such. So they put up a regulation that prevent them from doing that. Of course, Steve Rogerrs (Captain America) is not very happy about that, so he stands against it with a bunch of other characters. But on the other end of the spectrum we have Tony Stark (Iron Man) who is completely for this, being in favor of the regulations. So this of course ceates a bit of a conflict and starts a bit of a… civil war. Now since we don’t have the entire Marvel universe to have fun with, the movie will focus more on the Avengers splitting into teams, fighting eachother with the newest additions of Black Panther and (apparently) Spider-Man (Sidenote: Spidey did play a huge part in the comic) to the MCU. But even though there are limitations on which characters will be in the movie, we still seem to have a good amount that will show up and join in on the fight. Even general Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross (William Hurt) and his awesome mustache will make a return, being the one giving Cap the news of the regulation (as shown in the trailer).
I can at least say that based on the cast and trailer that I am pretty hyped about this movie. Hell, I’d even dare say that I think it will be pretty fucking awesome. I’ll leave a link to the trailer so you can check it out for yourselves and then maybe tell me what you thought about it.
