Captain America: Cival War: I Stand with Team...
From comic books to the big screen, Marvel is known for having the most epic, well-known super heroes and coming to a theater near you, these heroes will be battling it head-to-head.
From Marvel Studios comes the highly anticipated "Captain America: Civil War," the third film in the Captain America franchise and the first film in Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Let me just go ahead and say now that it will be the biggest opening of 2016.
The film touched on every emotion, literally. There is a perfect balance of humor, excitement, suspense, and even times where you feel empathy for a couple of the characters. I honestly did not think that was possible for a movie deemed as an "action-fantasy".
I won’t give away too much; where is the fun in that? What I will share is, when the Avengers tried to 'save the day', their actions led to the deaths of countless, innocent people. With their image already being in a delicate state and after one mistake too many, the Avengers faced political pressure to sign a document called the Sokovia Accords, which requires a global panel to oversee their actions. Captain America (Chris Evans) believes that superheroes should have the right to freely defend humanity without government limitations. As for Iron Man, (Robert Downy Jr.) he strongly disagrees and supports the government's decision. From there, an all-out feud takes place which leads to Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and fans picking a side.
Based on the respected Marvel comic book series, first published in 1941, Marvel’s “Captain
America: Civil War” stars a long list of heavy hitters.
Chris Evans (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “The Avengers”) as the iconic Super Hero character Steve Rogers/Captain America; Robert Downey Jr. (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Iron Man 3”) as Tony Stark/Iron Man; Scarlett Johansson (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow; Sebastian Stan (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Black Swan”) as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier; Anthony Mackie (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “The Hurt Locker”) as Sam Wilson/Falcon; Don Cheadle (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “House of Lies”) as Colonel James Rhodes/War Machine; Jeremy Renner (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation”) as Clint Barton/Hawkeye; Chadwick Boseman (“42,” “Get on Up”) as T’Challa/Black Panther; Paul Bettany (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Iron Man 3”) as Vision; and Elizabeth Olsen (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Godzilla”) as Wanda Maximoff/ Scarlet Witch.
The film also stars Paul Rudd (“Ant-Man,” “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues”) as Scott
Lang/Ant-Man; Emily VanCamp (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Revenge”) as Sharon Carter; Marisa Tomei (“My Cousin Vinny,” “Love the Coopers”) as May Parker; Tom Holland (“In the Heart of the Sea,” “The Impossible”) as Spider-Man; Frank Grillo (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones; and Martin Freeman (“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” “The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies”) as Everett Ross; with William Hurt (“A History of Violence,” Marvel’s “The Incredible Hulk”) as Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross and Daniel Brühl (“Inglourious Basterds,” “Bourne Ultimatum”) as Zemo.
Directed by the infamous, Emmy Award-winning Russo Brothers, Anthony and Joe Russo are giving fans the perfect concoction to this superhero film, a great story, multidimensional characters and an adrenaline rush.
“I feel audiences will connect with the humanity in all of the characters, says Joe Russo. “They’re all flawed in different ways and they’re equal parts good and bad. Even though they are Super Heroes, they’re extremely relatable as human beings and I think that’s what people are going to gravitate towards. The story in a strange way is kind of a ‘Sophie’s Choice.’ It’s very complicated and hard to decide who's right and who's wrong.”
Following “Captain America: Civil War,” the brothers will direct “Avengers: Infinity Wars Part 1” and “Avengers: Infinity Wars Part 2.”
The world's greatest Super Heroes have fallen out and are battling each other. In the film, there's no right, wrong or evil taking place. Ultimately, it is all about who you connect with. As for me, I am #TeamIronman. Get ready to choose your team and watch the action unfold on two fronts when Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016.
