Up until now, there hasn’t been any trailer or press for Marvel’s 2016 sequel, Captain America: Civil War. But during the Nov. 24 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans changed that, as they premiered the first footage from what will be one of the biggest box office successes in 2016. We can’t wait for it’s May 6 release date!
A trailer was shown at at this year’s D23 Expo in August, but it was never released to the public. So this is the first time fans are seeing footage of Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) vs Captain America (Chris Evans). In the newly released official trailer, we see the Captain America reunite with his Army pal Bucky Barnes, to discover he’s no longer an assassin but refuses Cap’s help. Meanwhile, the government is trying to shut down the Avengers, causing a rift between Captain America and Iron Man. We won’t spoil any more surprises for you so check it out right now!
During the interview portion, RDJ admitted that landing Iron Man was “The best thing that ever happened to me, it’s a great job and I’ve made great friends. Evans is a very capable guy, chicks dig him too,” he said before joking that on his days off he’d still visit Chris because “I really just wanted to come to set on my days off to watch you suffer,” referring to the fact that Chris had a lot more intense fight scenes than he does in the upcoming flick.
“I loved shooting in Atlanta but the the humidity was tough,” Chris admitted after making several previous complaints about filming the movie in the July heat. He better get used to it because that’s where the upcoming Avengers movie is going to be filmed!
And we’re not totally surprised by the trailer reveal. Earlier today, Nov. 24, host Jimmy Kimmel teased fans on Twitter, when he said he’d have a “big surprise” with his guests, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans.
