“United we stand, divided we fall.”
The themes of ‘Captain America: Civil War’ are clearly stated in the new TV spot that debuted during last night’s Super Bowl. The phrase is being incessantly chanted throughout the ad’s brisk 30 second run time, But by who? We’re not sure yet, possibly by ranks of Hydra soldier?
We’ll find out 29 April when the film hits UK cinemas.
So what’s new in the trailer?
We get to see more of Sebastian Stan’s Bucky/The Winter Soldier. He seems to be the catalyst for the divide that splits the Avengers in two and can be seen trying to shoot Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark at point blank range.
We also see Bucky and Cap in a stand off with Don Cheadle’s War Machine, who later on seems to be gravely injured. Is Bucky responsible? That would give Tony Stark two very good reasons to mad at Captain America’s loyalty to his old war time pal.
We also get to see the two teams of Avengers facing off with each other on a airport’s tarmac, confirming which side each hero has taken.
On team Cap we have Falcon, Ant-Man (sporting a new costume), Hawkeye, Cap, Scarlet Witch, and Bucky, while on team Iron Man there’s Black Panther, Vision, Iron Man, Black Widow, and War Machine.
‘Captain America: Civil War’ is coming to cinemas on 29 April, watch the first trailer below.
