(Warning - potential SPOILERS for Captain America: Civil War are to be found below, especially if you don't want to know who'll be doing what, and where they'll be doing it, in the movie...)

Now, the past few days may have brought a veritable smörgåsbord of awesomely revealing Captain America: Civil War images, but that doesn't by any stretch of the imagination mean that our burning need for Marvel teases has been sated.

Sure, we've seen a whole lot of that funeral, one of the movie's main villains unmasked, Black Widow getting in the thick of things, and even Cap and Crossbones going head to head - but we've been sufficiently spoiled before to ensure that even that's not enough.

There's something else we need to see - a certain hero who we've not yet glimpsed.

We need Iron Man.

It's probably for the best, then, that:

We Just Caught Our First Look at Iron Man On the Civil War Set

Or, rather, thanks to Weibo, we've finally been able to catch a fleeting glimpse of Robert Downey Jr. on set, suggesting that he's about to begin filming as that most Iron of Men.

Perhaps more surprising, though, is that:

We Also Got a Look at Ant-Man, Arriving For Duty

Which, though it could well just show Paul Rudd being given a tour of the set, may well also suggest that we're set to see Ant-Man play a full part in the Avengers. Could we even see him be recruited by (say) Tony, at the end of Ant-Man itself?

Other high points of the newly released images?

Scarlet Witch Gets Into the Action

Though it's kind of hard to tell whether that's just Elizabeth Olsen rehearsing, or doing Tai Chi...


Black Widow Gets Investigative

Though, in fairness, that may well just be the coat talking...

Crossbones Gets Menacing

Thus reinforcing the suggestion that he'll be taking on a whole lot of Avengers - with the next logical step being that he'll likely have help...


We Have Our First Look at Frank Grillo in Full Make-Up

Which suggests we're set to see at least one big reveal of the villain's face during this particular scene...

And, finally, in what may well be my favorite sneak peek image so far:

Cap Gets Punched in the Head

Which is just a really goddamn great picture, if you ask me...

What do you think, though?
