If you’ve been reading your favorite geek movie websites throughout this week you’ve probably noticed a lot of Captain America: Civil War coverage in the last few days. Outlets who had the opportunity to visit the set of Marvel’s first Phase 3 film last summer and interview the cast and crew are finally allowed share details what they saw and talked about.
And that includes us too. The embargo lifted for our #TeamCap interviews on Monday and #TeamIronMan on Tuesday, and you can read all about it, with links to our interviews in our Captain America: Civil War set visit report. The timing of all this content coincides with the real start to Disney and Marvel Studios’ marketing campaign for the film which means this is the week we also got new character posters for all the new and returning Avengers – and of course, the second full-length Captain America 3 trailer.
Check out the trailer below:
The trailer embraces a serious tone as the Avengers leadership is forced to reflect on the conflicts they’ve been a part of over the years, as Bucky returns to the fold without a warm welcome, and as Black Panther makes his bulletproof debut. But just as the battle begins, as Avengers fight Avengers, we see Ant-Man ride an arrow from Hawkeye, and Tony Stark summon Marvel’s newest and most popular hero: Spider-Man.
New Captain America: Civil War “Face Off” poster:
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.
Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd and Frank Grillo, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl.

Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016.
