Fan speculation was high yesterday after talk show host Jimmy Kimmel announced that his guests for lasts nights show of Jimmy Kimmel Live would be Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans. Though many fans secretly hoped for a full length trailer for next years Captain America: Civil War, realistically expectations were low due to the lack of any hype or official announcement from Marvel Studios or its president Kevin Feige. Yet it seems Marvel Studios have become aware that the marketing campaigns for many recent movies, including their own recent releases, have fallen into a predictable and tedious pattern. Rather than play the mystery game, as seems to be the case for Star Wars: The Force Awakens the full length trailer for Captain America: Civil War was thrown upon us without warning. The trailer (blow) pulls no punches and shows great promise while showcasing yet again the phenomenal talent of the directors Anthony and Joe Russo.
"He is my friend."
"So Was I!"
These emotionally charged words show that Civil War will play on the emotional dynamics between characters that were once allies but through dedication to their own beliefs have become reluctant enemies. Add a wealth of awesomely choreogaphed action scenes and the introduction of new heroes Black Panther and the as-of-yet unseen Spider-Man and the chances that Batman v Superman's glossy, superficial clash will claim the crown of the best superhero movie of 2016 are stating to look less certain.
Captain America: Civil War May 6th, 2016
