There have been reports that the first trailer of “Captain America: Civil War” will debut with the expected blockbuster film “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” when the latter hits global cinemas on December 18.
That would make sense because “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is Disney’s Lucasfilm while “Captain America: Civil War” is Disney’s Marvel Studios. In other words, both films are Disney’s so there is no surprise there.
In a recent Q&A session for “Captain America: Civil War” held at a community college in Cleveland, directors Joe and Anthony Russo revealed that the trailer of the movie is about to come out soon. The brothers disclosed that the trailer is almost complete and there are just a few special effects to edit. They assured fans that everyone is going to love the trailer, details Latinos Health.
Recent reports, however, indicate that before the first trailer of the third movie of the “Captain America” trilogy gets to air on movie houses next month attached to “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” it would make a splash first online and also attached to one of the episodes of Season 3 of the American fiction TV series “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” on ABC.
The possibility is very high as the theme of the last few episodes of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” seems to touch on Civil War.
Incorporating the premise
The sixth episode of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” titled “Chaos Theory” that aired on November 10 has somehow laid the foundation for and incorporated the premise of “Captain America: Civil War,” notes Vox.
As every Marvel comic book fan knows, “Civil War” is a story about how government and security function in a world that bends to the will of superheroes. It boils down as to how the government can keep superheroes in check and non-superheroes safe while preserving everyone’s rights.
That’s when the Superhero Registration Act was conceived, meant to regulate the superheroes. While half of the Avengers welcome the new legislation, the other half believes that it is an encroachment upon their freedom.
The difference in opinions on the new legislation will create a rift between the Avengers, with Captain America voicing his stand against the ruling while Iron Man raising a glass to support it.
Marvel’s biggest movie next year
“Captain America: Civil War” is expected to be the biggest movie of Marvel next year following its splash this year with “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Ant-Man.”
The movie is based on a script that was written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeeley and it is an adaptation of one of Marvel Comics’ biggest crossover events – Mark Millar’s “Civil War.”
The plot of “Captain America: Civil War” is tied into the aftermath of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and the conclusion of phase two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
That and the ensemble of Marvel superheroes in the movie have prompted critics to brand the third Captain America movie as an Avengers film.
But Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige officially came out recently to say that “Captain America: Civil War” is very much Cap’s movie because it is the culmination of a trilogy that began with “Captain America: The First Avenger.”
In a web forum to promote the home video release of “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Feige said that people will someday look back and watch “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” and “Captain America: Civil War” and they will say that it is one of the most unique and different trilogies ever around a single character.
Despite the presence of at least 11 other Marvel superheroes in “Captain America: Civil War” including Iron Man, Black Widow, Ant-Man, Scarlet Witch, Falcon, Winter Soldier, Spider-Man, Vision, Hawkeye, War Machine, and Black Panther, Feige debunks claims that the film is “Avengers 2.5.”
