Ever since the second [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409) trailer dropped, fans have been sent into a frenzy of speculation about the upcoming movie. The cast and crew have been nice enough to indulge our excitement by dropping plenty of hints, from revealing what's in Bucky's backpack to hosting live videos of the editing process.

And in this video, we catch a sneak peek at a previously unseen clip from the film!

The Russo brothers and the editing team are working on a scene we caught a glimpse of in the trailer: General Ross informing the Avengers how the Sokovia Accords will change things.

But this new clip actually reveals some crucial information about the situation that we didn't know before.

No Longer The Avengers

So here's the new deal. According to General Ross:

"The Avengers will no longer be a private organization. Instead, you will operate under the supervision of a United Nations panel, and will only act when and if that panel deems it necessary."

Which means that whenever some urgent threat rears its ugly head, the Avengers have to sit on their hands while this UN panel decides what to do. Somehow I doubt Steve "I don't like bullies" Rogers will be OK with that.

Captain America won't back down in "Civil War."
Captain America won't back down in "Civil War."

It's pretty difficult to hear him in the clip, but Steve does actually reply to Ross, and he's already arguing for the Avengers' independence:

"The Avengers was formed to make the world a safer place. I feel we’ve done that."

Of course, we don't know how all the footage connects yet (though we've had a go at piecing it together), but this line seems to lead into Ross showing all the destruction the Avengers were involved in, which we saw at the beginning of the second trailer.

This is definitely going to be one of the tensest scenes in an already fraught movie and it'll be interesting to see how it all plays out. But there's one more thing we learned from the sneaky new clip: There are more Avengers in this meeting than we previously expected!

Vision's A Snappy Dresser

It looks like both Vision and Rhodey are joining Sam Wilson, Natasha Romanoff, Wanda Maximoff and of course Steve Rogers in this meeting. And Vision dressed up for the occasion:

That's Rhodey's arm on the left.

It's difficult to see, but Vision is wearing a normal suit, which looks kinda odd with his distinct red epidermis.

Vision's got a new suit.

This raises all kinds of questions. Does Vision often dress in human clothes and wander the streets of New York? Or did he abandon the superhero outfit and cape for this somber meeting? Alas, with the autonomy of the Avengers, and Bucky's freedom at stake, it's unlikely this mystery will be solved when Captain America: Civil War is released. Fan theory, anyone?
