One of the goals of Captain America: Civil War is to not only give people a good time at the theater, but to give them a good conversation afterwards. I haven’t seen the film yet, so I don’t know how far it leans in either direction (on the set, the secreenwriters said their goal was 51% Cap and 49% Iron Man), but a new clip makes the film look incredibly balanced.
In the clip, the team debates whether or not they should be regulated, and you see the pros and cons of each side. Once again, we see that Steve Rogers is no meathead as he thoughtfully articulates the need for independence while Tony Stark counters that it’s better to sign on now rather than be forced into service later.
There’s also a second clip where some members of Team Iron Man and Agent 13 try to take down Bucky, and all I can say is that the Russos haven’t lost a step in their direction since The Winter Soldier. The action is as fast-paced and well choreographed as ever.
Check out the new Captain America: Civil War clips below. The film stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Scarlett Johansson, Emily VanCamp, Elizabeth Olsen, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Daniel Bruhl, and Martin Freeman. The film opens May 6th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Captain America: Civil War:
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
