Warning: The following article contains spoilers for Captain America: Civil War!! Do not read this article unless you've seen this amazing movie, or unless you are extremely bored.

I freaking loved Captain America: Civil War!! It took away the bitter taste of Batman V. Superman from my mouth. I experienced tons of nerdgasms! And ultimately, in my opinion the Captain America Trilogy is the best superhero trilogy! Let's talk about that!

The last superhero movie I saw before this was Batman V. Superman, and it left a bitter taste in my mouth. But Captain America: Civil War refreshed me. It actually was awesome! There was so much more humor in this movie rather than Batman V. Superman. Despite everyone fighting each other, this movie had a lot of funny moments. The Vision tried to have a romantic date with Scarlet Witch. Both Spider-Man and Ant-Man geeked out over fighting alongside Earth's mightiest heroes. And Bucky competed against The Falcon for Captain America's approval. Batman V. Superman was not funny at all! Everyone was mopey and flat out miserable.

Captain America: Civil War had much more hope than Batman V. Superman. Despite The Avengers getting disbanded, Captain America gives Tony a message of hope. He'll be there for Tony with the Avengers, even though they appear to no longer be friends. Considering that Bucky had once killed Howard and Maria Stark. In the middle of the credits there is a scene in Wakanda. Black Panther has Bucky return to being cryogenically frozen to keep him safe from the world. In Batman V. Superman, the overall tone of the movie was dark and hopeless. It was completely joyless! I'm so grateful that Captain America: Civil War washed the bitter taste from my mouth that was planted by Batman V. Superman!

Captain America: Civil War was so amazing that I experienced so many nerdgasms! This movie has so much fan service! Black Panther makes a debut! Spider-Man is finally introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ant-Man rides on top of one of Hawkeye's arrows just like on the cover of Avengers #233! Spider-Man's suit is based on the original artwork drawn by Stan Lee's friend, Jack Kirby. Spider-Man also cracks jokes. Ant-Man becomes Giant-Man during the airport battle. Spider-Man receives the spider signal, which he uses to shine light on criminals just like in the comic books. And the greatest form of fan service in Captain America: Civil War was the final fight between Captain America and Iron Man. Tony blasts Steve's shield like he does on the cover of the Civil War comic book. All in all, I had so many nerdgasms that my inner ten year old self enjoyed watching this movie.

In my opinion, the Captain America trilogy is the best superhero trilogy. That's right! I like it better than Sam Raimi's Spider-Man Trilogy, and definitely better than Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy! Captain America's movies just has a lot more charm than those trilogies. Captain America has class, and doesn't spend the majority of his movies moping around! He always fights for the right reasons. Cap is just a classier hero compared to most of the other superheroes. He doesn't curse or drink heavily (like a certain metal clad superhero). Captain America also does his best to keep his friends (like Bucky) first before him. To be honest, the Captain America trilogy has the perfect balance between hardcore action and lightheartedly triumphant moments of victory! (I mean no offense to The Dark Knight Trilogy. It's just I love Captain America immensely more than Batman.)

I freaking loved Captain America: Civil War! It took away the bitter taste of Batman V. Superman from my mouth. It gave me a ton of nerdgasms. And it made Captain America have the greatest superhero trilogy. If you haven't seen this movie yet, go see it now!!!! I give the thirteenth masterpiece of the Marvel Cinematic Universe an A+.
