Divided we fall: Our five favorite moments from the new trailer for ‘Captain America: Civil War’
The brand new trailer for Captain America: Civil War has ignited Marvel fans everywhere, and it’s easy to see why. We were in awe of every single frame, and now we’re counting down our five favorite moments for you to enjoy:
5. “New York, Washington D.C., Sokovia.”
The sins of the past weigh heavily on Steve Rogers in a briefing from new Secretary of State Thaddeus ‘Thunderbolt’ Ross (William Hurt), as Ross introduces the Superhuman Registration Act (SRA) to Rogers, Sam Wilson, Natasha Romanoff and Wanda Maximoff. Ross and the international security community are drawing the line here, and it’s a line that will have major consequences.
4. “We try to save as many people as we can, sometimes that doesn’t mean everybody. But you don’t give up.”
While the S.R.A. will weigh heavily on Cap’s stance to take a stand, so to does the presence of his former childhood best friend, war buddy and one-time enemy, James ‘Bucky” Barnes (Sebastian Stan), who was subjected to vast physical and psychological torture at the hands of Hydra. Not only does it look like we’ll see his transformation at the hands of KGB and Hydra, but Barnes isn’t playing around, and is leveling some serious firepower at those who want to bring him in.
3. “You just started a war.”
Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) are at each other’s throats in Civil War, and it looks like Rogers pushes Stark over the edge resulting in one massive brawl that will lead to all-out superhero war!
2. “I can do this all day.”
In a sweet throwback to 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger, Rogers delivers his signature line, as he’s battered and bloodied, his hands still raised in defiance as he readies to fight back against the onslaught poised by Iron Man. The action is intense in Civil War, and it’s not just Team Iron Man that Cap will have to deal with as the badass Brock Rumlow returns to the battlefield as vindictive terrorist Crossbones (Frank Grillo). And then there’s the presence of the mysterious, and as yet unseen Baron Zemo (Daniel Bruhl).
1. “Hey everyone.”
While the new trailer for Civil War is packed with tense characterisation, and thunderous in-your-face action, the heartstopping moment that caused fans the world over to freeze was the sudden appearance of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man! Putting his web-slinging skills to the test, and with a costume that would make Steve Ditko proud, this new Spider-Man is definitely going to make a big impression in the constantly evolving Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Captain America: Civil War is set to thoroughly shake-up everything we know about the Marvel Universe SpicyPulpers when its released in cinemas on May 5 in Australia and New Zealand and on May 6 in the US and UK.
