If you heard a window-rattling screech last night, it was just me fangirling to the new “Captain America: Civil War” trailer that debuted during “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” The teaser for the follow-up to the stellar “Captain America: Winter Solder” is more spectacular than even I could have predicted!
In the trailer, Steve (Chris Evans) finally tracks down Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) who has regained some memories, but reality looms in the form of international agencies that want the Winter Soldier—a rogue Hydra experiment used to commit murders— dead. Meanwhile, mysterious entities associated with the Avengers want to reign in Captain America and other Avengers. “You’ve operated with unlimited power and no supervision. That’s something the world can no longer tolerate.” Um, gulp.
Battle lines are drawn, and everyone takes sides. Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson) surprisingly stands with an ever-arrogant Tony Stark, Iron Patriot (Don Cheadle) and Black Panther (Marvel newcomer Chadwick Boseman). Leaving Steve with the Winter Soldier and Falcon (Anthony Mackie), the Scarlet Witch, and Hawkeye. At some point, Steve gets in a fight with a helicopter and a building, and Bucky goes for Iron Man's power core!
If I’m grateful for anything going into Thanksgiving weekend, it’s definitely for this action-packed, explosive trailer! Make use of the pause button to find gasp-worthy shockers and discuss below!
