What better time than the Super Bowl, with its fierce rivalries and spectacle, to release a new trailer for Captain America: Civil War? Marvel Studios aired just a short TV spot, but there’s a lot crammed into it.
“United we stand, divided we stand,” nameless voices chant. “United we fall, divided we fall.” If we didn’t already know who’s taken which side, now we’re clear: It’s Cap, Bucky, Falcon, Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, and Ant-Man versus Iron Man, War Machine, Black Widow, Vision, and Black Panther—”You chose the wrong side,” Tony Stark intones.
No surprise, seeing as Bucky tries to shoot him point-blank and it seems that Tony’s Iron Man hand is the only thing that saves him. Combine that with lots of explosions (including one that seems to rattle Nat), Rhodey out cold, and other potential acts of (superhero) war. Watch the trailer!
Marvel is also telling fans to tweet #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan, which usually I would find cheesy… but each hashtag generates different Civil War emoji! Well played, Marvel. Captain America: Civil War comes to theaters May 6, 2016.
