With [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409) not due in theaters until May 6, 2016, fans have been patiently waiting for any piece of information about the movie they can get. Aside from Kevin Feige announcing Black Panther will be introduced in the film as a neutral Avenger and Spider-Man making a cameo in the film, the only clue we've gotten so far as to what the teams will look like was the ending of [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](tag:293035) (Captain America training his new Avengers for battle). But now, we have some short teasing footage (actually, two teasers) that can shed some light on what the Civil War is going to look like, including an excellent shot of the villain Crossbones!
The First Teaser
Now, sure, the footage is by no means the best quality and has some fan-made additions, but some of this footage reveals things we have NEVER seen in any of the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far. But wait - it gets better.
The Second Teaser
Again, this trailer may be integrating some fan-made aspects, but some of the scenes we see (like Crossbones firing his weapon) are clearly footage that we have not seen yet in any movies from the MCCU, which leads us to believe that a lot of the teasers footage may very well be real.
The Bottom Line
Just take a look at both trailers as they have some very compelling footage that give some insight into what to expect from the film and are sure to send chills down your spine as you watch them! I hope you enjoy! Captain America: Civil War premiers in theaters across the USA on May 6, 2016.
Black Panther Is Our Neutral Avenger In The Civil War Movie
Kevin Feige himself has released this during an interview, stating:
"In the case of Civil War, we needed a third party, we needed a character who wasn’t on either Captain America or Iron Man’s side, which is why we went, 'You know what? We’re doing a Black Panther movie, but it would actually be smart to have him fill this role we need in Civil War and introduce him here first.'"

A Familiar Avenger Will Be In Ant-Man
If you haven't seen the latest Ant-Man TV spot, you can check it out in my article:
This TV spot confirms that one of Captain America's new Avengers will be making an appearance in a few scenes of Marvels Ant-man, which is in theaters across the USA July 17, 2015. This confirmation leads us to my next topic:
The Mid and End Credit Scenes of Ant-Man
That's right - not even in theaters until next July 17, 2015, the mid and end credit scenes for the movie has already been unveiled (well, what will happen in it, at least). According to comicbookmovie.com,
In the mid-credits scene for Ant-Man, "Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) gives the Wasp costume with wings to Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly)" and "Hank explains to Hope what happened to Hope's mother Janet Van Dyne." As for the post-credits scene, "Captain America (Chris Evans) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie) have located The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) to a remote location where The Winter Soldier is tied up." Falcon asks Cap, "Should I call Stark?" He replied "No," before Falcon says, "I know who to call," referring to Ant-Man. Falcon appears in key scenes in the movie.
Adding credibility to the above descriptions, the finalized Ant-Man cast list confirms that Anthony Mackie is definitely in the movie while Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan have "uncredited" roles. Evidently, they all, including Paul Rudd, return in Captain America: Civil War.
For a more in depth analysis on what Falcon and Captain America's inclusion in Ant-Man mean, as well as the why the Falcon is in the actual movie (not just the end credit scene), check out my article posted below:
Well, there you have it folks. We have two teasers that offer footage that is undoubtedly (parts of it, at least) from the upcoming Civil War movie, as well as confirmations of Black Panther being the neutral Avenger in the upcoming film. On top of that, we have mid-credit and post-credit scenes for Ant-Man that confirm he will be joining Cap's team in the Civil War, and it looks like our heroes are finally closing in on the Winter Soldier AKA Bucky Barnes.
