If you don’t want to know the score, look away now… well, okay, we don’t exactly know the final outcome of ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ but thanks to this newly released promo art we do have some idea how the big fight will shape up.
This rather gorgeous official artwork by artists Andy Park and Ryan Meinerding premiered at Total Film (our thanks to Comic Book Movie for the text-free version), and - assuming it’s not just general concept art (which is, of course, a possibility) - it would appear to show just who will be butting heads with whom.
Taking centre stage is, of course, the fight we’ve all been anticipating - Chris Evans’ Cap vs Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man. But on the peripheries, we have some comparative surprises.
First off, in the top left there’s Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch using her red energy force fields to shield herself from Paul Bettany’s Vision - whilst Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye readies his bow, not appearing to be in direct conflict with anyone - but notably looking in the direction of his (former?) BFF Black Widow.
Bottom left is of course Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, facing an attack from Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man - whilst in the top right, Anthony Mackie’s Falcon is trading blows with Don Cheadle’s similarly airbound War Machine.
Finally, in the bottom right we see Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther doing his best to slash up Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier - and this might be a particularly telling image, as thus far we’ve been told that Black Panther is largely neutral in the super-powered civil war.
Excited yet - assuming you weren’t already?
We’ll see if they all go the distance when ‘Captain America: Civil War’ opens on 29 April 2016.
