Whoa. Marvel kicked off the opening of the Super Bowl on Feb. 7 by dropping a brand spanking new trailer for ‘Captan America: Civil War,’ and let’s just say, it’s SUPER intense! Click here to watch!
The Super Bowl is all about choosing sides and fighting until the very end, so it seems only fitting then that Marvel should kick off the big game with a promo for an upcoming action-packed rivalry of its own — of course, we’re talking about Captain America Civil War! The brand spanking new trailer was released during the Super Bowl kickoff show on Feb. 7, giving fans yet another look at the highly-anticipated battle brewing between Chris Evans‘s Captain America and Robert Downey Jr.‘s Iron Man. Without giving too much away, we’ll just say the teaser is super intense, and one that you’re definitely not going to want to miss. Watch it here!
We are so pumped! In the first teaser to be released since November, Captain America and Iron Man return, only this time on opposite sides of the law. Whereas previous Avengers films saw the two working side-by-side, the third film in the Captain America trilogy now sees the two preparing for war against each other, and by the looks of this new trailer, neither side is going down without a fight!
In what is arguably the most intense trailer of the year thus far, the 30-second spot opens to the sound of unseen voices chanting the phrase, “united we stand” and “divided we fall,” before giving a glimpse into what’s at stake for the two heroes, and those who choose to follow them: among them Black Widow, The Vision, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, War Machine, Ant-Man and newcomer Black Panther. The feud itself is caused by Tony Stark (Iron Man) and Steve Rogers’ (Captain America) disagreement over whether or not the world governments should try to regulate those individuals with super powers: #TeamCap leads those who resist the regulations, while #TeamIronMan becomes their champion, thus forcing the rest of the Avengers to take their sides.
Superhero drama aside, the Super Bowl trailer also gave us a quick sneak peek at a slick new gadget from Stark Industries: a nifty toy that looks like a wristwatch gauntlet, which Tony Stark uses to block a gunshot from Bucky Barnes, a.k.a. The Winter Soldier. Needless to say, this is going to one gruesome battle!
Along with the action-packed new teaser, Disney and Marvel also celebrated the video’s release with the launch of eleven new custom Twitter emojis featuring characters that fans can tweet to declare their allegiance to their favorite Marvel characters. The only question that remains then is whose side are you going to choose: #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan?
