Oh, hey Spider-Man.
Not that I needed any more reason to be obsessively hyped for Captain America: Civil War, but Marvel Entertainment went ahead and decided to fan the flames further by releasing a new one featuring everyone’s favorite wall-crawler. And it’s pretty much everything I wanted and then some.
So for everyone wondering why Cap seemed to have the numerical advantage in the face-offs, there you go. I’m loving the vintage tribute to the Steve Ditko mask on Spider-Man mixed with a classic Alex Ross take on the costume. There was no topping The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for best comic book to movie, but this is pretty close. Maybe Captain America’s squad has a surprise of their own? How awesome was that Ant-Man riding Hawkeye’s arrow shot?
How bada$$ was Bucky in the trailer from gunning down/hopefully not killing War Machine to going toe to toe with Black Panther, who looks equally impressive. And that mounting tension between Cap and Iron Man almost seems like something the two Avengers mainstays won’t be able to recover from when the dust is settled. There’s one major character we’ve yet to see make an appearance and he could be the cause for all this drama with The Avengers.
And with Avengers: Infinity War is a wrap with 67 characters planned, it isn’t too late for Marvel to start working some collaborating deals with 20th Century Fox to get the Fantastic Four and the X-Men on board for a Secret Wars film. I know, pipe dream, but it could happen.
For now enjoy these Civil War pics.
And if we’ve really got a cinematic superhero war, let’s see how Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice responds to this one.
Don’t forget Sideshow Collectibles has sure to sell out pre-orders for some of the principal Civil War characters up now:
