It took me long enough to see this! Damn!.. I’m just going to refer to this as Civil War because in every sense, this is an Avengers movie. Civil war doesn’t need much of an introduction. Everyone and their sister has looked forward to this movie for a very long time… So, at the beginning of the movie Wanda accidentally kills a bunch of civilians which causes everyone to look closer at the damage the Avengers truly cause. The UN fashions up an agreement, making the Avengers a government run “back up” of sorts. Captain America and a bunch of other super heroes disagree, Iron Man and a bunch of other super heroes agree. At the same time Bucky (Winter Soldier) is trying to escape the clutches of the government and Captain America is helping… This movie had every possibility to be a giant cluster fuck. This had every opportunity disappoint everyone! This movie has so much talent and so much buildup that it would take a miracle (or Marvel studios) to handle all of that!.. But it did… This movie has the same light hearted tone most of the time we are use to. But, countering that, when it needed to be serious it was. For the first time in a Marvel movie I was concerned for the characters lives! Lets touch on the characters now, and there are a lot of them! Iron Man and Captain America countered each other superbly. They clashed and you saw their friendship crumble because of it. Bucky was amazing and I was very invested in his story. I was worried his story would get in the way but I loved learning how he came to be! The reveal of Black Panther was awesome, especially the reveal of who he was! Seeing a hero who does not act as an Avenger, and does not want to be one is great! Paul Rudd as Ant Man was awesome comic relief and fit in SO much better than I thought he would. Everyone else was as you would expect them, BUT the one everyone looked forward to is Spider Man! Everyone but me. Going in to this I was not excited about Spider Man. In fifteen years I have seen 5 movies and 2 different actors… I was blown away! Tom Holland NAILED every aspect of Spider Man. He is a better Peter Parker than Tobey Maguire and a better Spider Man than Andrew Garfield! If you like him make sure to stick around for the end credits!.. This movie is great and you have to see it!.. But, you already knew that. Didn’t you?
Okay, so, I couldn’t let one more day go by without reviewing this new trailer… Civil War needs no introduction or explanation at this point, so why don’t I just get to the trailer? This trailer is a lot more action filled, a lot quicker pace, and a lot cooler in my opinion. I’m not gonna lie, I’m full on team Iron Man… This trailer really made Cap seem like the bad guy, and I love it. I never thought Marvel would be able to make Captain America seem like the bad guy, but they succeeded. After watching this I don’t think Bucky is savable. It appears he kills War Machine and tries to shoot Tony JUST in this two minute trailer… There is so much to talk about in this, but something nobody is talking about is Ant Man… I realize he didn’t have the best movie, but its cool seeing him fight among the other heroes, if only for a second in this! After seeing this though it makes me worried that there is just too much to it. Too many heroes/villains. Too many story lines. Too much to touch on. I worry it will be packed, and too many things will be shoe horned… Now, what everyone is talking about…Spiderman. I should be a lot more excited, but I’m not. This is the THIRD Spiderman I have seen in 15 years. I know it is Marvel, but I’m not that excited. I’m also not sure how I feel about the suit. At first I hated it, now I only kind of hate it… I really think they should have completely left Spidey out till the movie. Anyway, I don’t need to tell you to watch it. I know everyone already will!
We have all seen it, more than likely 50 times, and we all love it. The first trailer for Captain America: Civil War was dropped on us randomly and it is heavenly… I love the darker feel of it, almost like the first Ultron trailer, which is a good change. I also love that it focuses on Cap a lot since everyone has been saying it is basically just an Avengers movie. I have a little bit of a controversial opinion on this though. Personally I side with Tony/Iron Man on this. Though this is a Captain America movie, I see him more as the bad guy than anything else. I am curious to see if they market this as a “Team Iron Man” or “Team Captain America” thing. Either way though, this trailer is amazing and very emotionally charged. You get glimpses of everybody, and the “So was I” line gives me goosebumps every time. A+ (I don’t rate, but it gets an A+ if I did.)
