With just a few weeks to go until the release of Captain America: Civil War, Marvel has so far released a couple of clips to the public. The first one features our favorite Avengers in action against Crossbones’s henchman, and the second one shows Ant-Man getting his first introduction to our American hero. You can check out both of these clips below:
'Just Like We Practiced'
Now, in the third clip Marvel just released, we're finally getting a glimpse of what this “Civil War” thing is all about. In a meeting between the Avengers, Cap is of course front and center, giving his input on the matter. Watch the clip below to get a taste of what’s to come:
This is exactly the turmoil I expected to see. We have already heard these two Avengers bickering back and forth about who’s right and who’s wrong throughout the trailers. Now we see the tension build up even as Tony and Steve begin to talk it over, trying to figure out which way to go.
This scene of course takes place after the national incident that results in many human deaths. This enables Thunderbolt Ross to intervene and explain to the heroes that they need to be under direct supervision. Obviously Cap has an issue with this, and we see that come full circle during this clip.
Cap mentions that, “We offer to not take responsibility for our actions. This document just shifts the blame.” Rhodey then gives his input, calling Steve “dangerously arrogant,” and mentions that it’s the bigger boys they’re dealing with now, including the United Nations.
My favorite part of the whole clip, though, is when Tony states, “That’s why I’m here. When I realized what my weapons were capable of in the wrong hands, I shut it down and stopped manufacturing.”
Cap immediately interrupts him and stresses that he chose to do so; Tony chose to shut down those weapons. If the government had had any say in it, Tony may never have gotten his way, especially if the weapons had ended up in the wrong hands.
Cap continues, saying, “If we sign this, we surrender our right to choose.” Cap could not have stated this any more clearly as this scene will surely start the end of the Avengers as we know them.
I'd also like to point out how we see Vision blending into society by wearing normal clothing. This recalls the time in Avengers: Age of Ultron when he said that “humans are odd, but it’s a privilege to live among them.”
Out of those three clips, this one has to be my personal favorite. I honestly don’t want to see any more footage until this film is released. I have been waiting SO LONG to see this epic superhero versus superhero battle, and from everything I’ve read online, it’s the greatest superhero fight ever. That just amps up my anticipation for the movie even more.
'Captain America: Civil War' will soar into theaters on May 6!
