‘Captain America: Civil War’ TV Spot Pits Hawkeye Against Black Widow

     March 30, 2016


In just over a month’s time, Captain America: Civil War will hit theaters. That makes this time the period over which Marvel will be unleashing mega-flurries of promotional material, each one featuring just a bit more footage of the impending superhero clash. Following the release of a TV spot from Marvel India’s campaign, two more have hit the Web, one international and one domestic.

While the international addition (which you can view over at CBM; Caution: it’s on auto-play) doesn’t feature any new footage, the U.S. spot sneaks in new looks between the first and last shots (the drop of Cap’s shield and the fight between Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye). Plus, it features new music to adrenaline charge the action.

Watch the new spot below:

Other friendly face-offs teased throughout the promos are Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) vs. The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) vs. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) vs. Vision (Paul Bettany), and, of course, the central battle between Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark.

Captain America: Civil War sees the introduction of the Sokovia Accords, which allow governmental action to enforce a system of accountability on The Avengers after another international incident involving the super-humans. Add in the re-emergence of The Winter Soldier, who’s now a wanted man after the events of the last Cap film, and the team becomes split — some rally behind Captain America, while the others enlist on Team Iron Man.

Other characters confirmed for the film are Anthony Mackie’s Falcon, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, Emily VanCamp’s Agent 13, Don Cheadle’s War Machine, Martin Freeman’s Everett Ross, William Hurt’s General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, and Daniel Bruhl’s Baron Zemo.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Captain America: Civil War will hit theaters on May 6.

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.
