The opening scene of Captain America: Civil War trailer, which was also happens to be same scene shown during the end credits of Marvel’s 2015 hit film Antman, gets you glued instantly. Besides the action packed sequences there are five captivating elements that will simply blow your mind.
1. Black Panther
We finally get a glimpse of the African hero. From Avengers: Age of Ultron, the highly lucrative and rare metal of Vibranium is discovered. The same vibranium is used to create Black Panther’s suit and according to the comics he is one of the richest man alive thanks to the control and protection of the Vibranium reserves. As for who’s side he will be in the Civil War, Iron Man or Captain America’s, it is anyone’s guess.
2. Winter Soldier is punching again!
Bucky Barnes or Winter Soldier was one of the most solid Marvel villains in the Captain America franchise. He kicks and punches his way into SHIELD and now he is back in the movie. According to the Civil War trailer he is the one who the American authorities are chasing and Captain America is trying to protect. If the story follows the comics, Winter Soldier is also the one who killed Tony Stark’s father Howard Stark, hence no wonder Iron Man is against him.
3. General Ross returns!
Remember The Incredible Hulk? Yes, Marvel brings back the character of General Ross, the main perpetrator for making and trying to use Bruce Banner/Hulk as a military experiment. He is always for no superhero scenario and introduces Sovokia Accords to enforce masked vigilantes and superheroes reveal their identity. Considering Tony Stark/Iron Man’s identity is already revealed and taking clues from Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tony naturally stands with Ross.
4. No Spiderman?
Spidey in Civil War might be a possibility as there are rumors flooding over Spiderman being a part of this superheroes collection. And he is needed in the franchise since, according to Captain America comics, is the pivotal character in the Superhero vs Superhero war. Though he initially sides with one alliance, at the end of the war he switches sides and changes the face of battle. Whose side will he be in the movie: Iron Man or Captain Rogers is still up for debate. But first, does he get his place in the movie.
5. Winter Soldier & Captain America double teaming Iron Man
This scene will make you feel bad for Tony Stark. In the last part of the trailer, when Stark is brutally overpowered by the two of the strongest characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you feel sorry for Stark for ever fighting them. Especially the scene when Rogers says “He’s my friend” and Stark sadly replies “So was I”. There is another significance to the scene and if the movie follows comic books, Barnes might take up the mantle of Captain America since Rogers dies in the Civil War comics.
So these are the five things that makes the wait for May 5, 2016 seem light years ahead. Considering Marvel’s promotional strategy the next full length trailer for the movie can be expected in a month or two. And if you are yet to watch this teaser trailer, catch it immediately. Well, stop everything and WATCH IT NOW!
