A 'Captain America: Civil War' Trailer You Should be Thankful For
First off, Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you're all in the midst of a potato-induced carb coma. If not, you didn't Thanksgiving hard enough. Get on that.
Anyway, it takes a lot to get me excited about a movie that doesn't involve lightsabers this month, but Marvel Studios dropped a massive bombshell this week in the form of the first Captain America: Civil War trailer. It looks like it strays from the original comic book quite a bit, intermingling the comics' issue of government-mandated superhero registration with Cap's search for his ally-turned-nemesis Bucky, who vanished at the conclusion of The Winter Soldier. Although we still haven't seen any footage of Spider-Man, who's confirmed to appear in the threequel, this trailer does give us our first glimpse at Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, among other awesome moments that should make the seemingly endless wait until the film's May 6 release date a tad more endurable. Just a tad.
Watch the trailer, make yourself a turkey sandwich and binge-watch some Jessica Jones on Netflix. You deserve it.
