After months of waiting, we finally have the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War and boy, does it pack a punch to the heart. Iron Man and the Cap are no longer on friendly terms in the newest installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Steve Rogers has lost all faith in the government after discovering the corrupt agency S.H.I.E.L.D. has become and Tony Stark recklessly unleashed Ultron upon the world, is in favor of the act. Now Stark is willing to go head-to-head with Captain America, who is opposed to the act, to ensure that he complies with the government accord. Aside from opposing such an act, Rogers also wants to protect his friend Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) who was brainwashed into becoming the evil Winter Soldier.
Things are going to get rough.
Captain America: Civil War is based on the 2006-07 seven-part limited Marvel crossover series written by Mark Millar.
