The film that’s set to divide Marvel fans is gearing up for release, and now there’s a new trailer to show us just how fierce the battle will get.
Here’s the synopsis:
Following the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, another international incident involving Captain America (Chris Evans) and the Avengers results in unparalleled collateral damage, prompting politicians to form a system of accountability to determine just when it’s right to call in the Avengers. This drives a stake between the team and sets up a collision course between Steve Rogers, and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.).
The comic series which the film draws from is a tense read, revealing major consequences for our favourite superheroes. While directors Anthony and Joe Russo have previously stated that the film won’t necessarily be following the series, it’s mighty clear from the trailer that the stakes will be just as high.
Captain America: Civil War will be released in cinemas on May 5 in Australia and New Zealand and on May 6 in the US and UK.
