Yes we are still about 9 months away from the release of [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409) but that doesn't change the fact that the hype for this film is as big as ever. The next entry into the Captain America series is going to lay the foundation for the MCU for years to come. We have already been exposed to some of the awesomeness that will come along with it but what exactly makes us so excited? While there are many things driving the hype train for this movie, there are 5 things in particular that I think is sparking fans interest the most.
5. Crossbones will be AWESOME!
Frank Grillo is officially suited up as Crossbones and he will be BADASS! Brock Rumlow was pretty fun to watch in Captain America: Civil War and I can only imagine how great he will be this time around. I have always had a thing for Crossbones comics wise and the moment I saw the set photos of him suited up I must admit, I fan-girled a tiny bit. The fight scene between him and Cap looks pretty cool, but What I really want to know is how he got those scares. (Ledger Voice)
4. Ant-Man is Joining the team!
Ant-Man surprised everyone by becoming arguably the second best Marvel film behind The Avengers. Paul Rudd did an excellent job as Scott Lang and it seems as if he will be joining the rest of The Avengers in Civil War. Pictures released that suggested that Ant-Man will be aligning himself with Captain America and his revolutionary team. It is great to see that one of the founding member of The Avengers finally joining the team on screen. Hopefully his chemistry with the rest of the cast is good and I can't wait for the ANT!
3. Black Panther is finally here!
The hype for Black Panther has been building and building for quite some time. Now that we are only 9 months away from his first appearance on screen the hype can not be much bigger. Black Panther has always been a fan favorite among Marvel fans and he will bring an added level of excitement and energy on screen and I know fans are sitting at the edge of their seats in anticipation. Hopefully he can live up to the hype because the potential for this character is endless.
If Spider-Man were getting anything other than a short fight scene he probably would be #1 on this list. Nonetheless, Tom Holland is our new Peter Parker and while many people are question the casting choice there is no question however that It will be exciting to see Spider-Man finally joining the MCU. Fans have long waited for this and I'm positive that Marvel will not fail to impress. I reserve judgement on Tom Holland as I am a firm believer in Marvel and the fact that Stan Lee even vouched for him. Hopefully we get a quality performance out of Holland and a great new Spider-Man!
1. Iron Man Vs Captain America...of course!
Of course, the most exciting aspect of Civil War is the conflict that drives the war in the first place. Captain America's team vs Iron Man's team is going to be a battle for the ages. The chemistry that Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr exhibit on screen is remarkable and together they create the perfect recipe for a rivalry. Hopefully the rumors aren't true and our beloved Chris Evans led Captain America doesn't meet his demise at the Iron hand of Tony Stark. Which side are you on?
