It's Super Bowl time which means that it's time for most movie-lovers to actually sit down and watch a football game for once solely so they can get a look at some trailers for upcoming movies and we have quite a few of them this year, starting with "Captain America: Civil War".
Starting off this trailer is a chant of "United we stand, divided we fall". This is obviously referencing the fact that the Avengers as a crew is at war with each other and it definitely fits for what this trailer is going for. It actually gave me a vibe similar to that of "The Dark Knight Rises" trailer with the "Deshi Bashara" chant going on in the background.
And with the chant we get plenty of imagery, some we've already seen from the first trailer and some new cool stuff that looks really cool. I especially like the small glimpses we're getting of Bucky vs Iron Man, Bucky presumably being one of the catalysts for the start of the Civil War. And among the imagery we get, the money shot comes at the very end with a look at the lineup for each side. One side is Captain America, Bucky, Ant-Man, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, and Falcon, and the other side is Iron Man, War Machine, Black Widow, Vision, and Black Panther. That was a great way to end the trailer not only because it's just a cool shot, but it creates some speculation for me and it involves Spider-Man.
We obviously haven't seen Spider-Man in these trailers and I don't think we will, but I just have a feeling that it's Spider-Man that's standing on Black Panther's right side. He could have a significant amount of screen time whilst having absolutely no trailer appearances, or he could simply be in this movie about as much as Luke Skywalker was in "The Force Awakens". I doubt they'll do the latter, but all options are on the table at this point.
Simply put, this was a cool little TV spot to kick off the Super Bowl commercials and I can only assume it has every other Marvel fan hyped about this trailer even more than the first one. Despite the overwhelming amount of unfunny, disappointing general commercials this year, there was a pretty solid amount of good movie trailers and I'll be giving my thoughts on a few more tomorrow. But for now, enjoy the "Civil War" trailer for what it is.
