Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans released the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and now thanks to the Internet, we can all watch again, and again, and again.

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. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016.

  1. I will definitely watch this at theaters because the action looks to be pretty awesome. Especially the fight scene between Iron Man, Cap, and Bucky. I do however, have a hard time believing Tony Stark would be on the government side of things in this scenario. I could easily see Captain America fall on the side of government oversight, but Stark? Come on. I call BS on that one.

      I’m actually surprised by how well they are working that in actually, Tony’s life story (in his eyes) is nothing but mistake after mistake and then having to correct it. Stark tech falling into the hands of terrorists was the reason he became Iron Man, Hell age of Ultron was his fault. We are looking at a man who time and time again has to pay for the mistakes he made because he was reckless or straight up ignorant, I feel like this is Tony trying to prevent another disaster.

  2. This is one of the few films I actually hope I can see in theaters. I’m usually fine waiting for the DVD, but this has me interested and excited in a way that I haven’t felt very often lately. The two most recent movies to get me this excited in anticipation are the first Avengers film and the upcoming Star Wars film, so that should say just how rare it is for something to get me this excited.

  3. Shut up and take my money!

    Totally gonna watch this 2 or 3 times.

    I know a lot of people say that it would have made more sense to switch Captain America’s and Iron Man’s positions because Captain America is supposed to represent America. However, I think it’s more nuanced than that. At least in the movies, Captain America has never really been about America or protecting America. He’s always been about defending people from aggressors. I don’t remember him really blinding bowing down to authority in the first Captain America movie. In fact, he seemed a little at odds with Tommy Jones’s character. I think in this case, he feels obligated to protect Bucky from what he judges to be unfair persecution. So I think that the plot so far seems fairly within character, at least in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

  4. Its interesting how much of this is taking place outside of the states.
    It sais Polizei (German) on the SWAT teams wests, the numberplates we see are EU and the papers are about Sokovia.
    Maby Cap makes an international “incident” and Tony have to clean up?

  5. Just went back and saw Winter Soldier. 10 years ago I would never have belived the the Cap A movies would be the best of the Marvel movies.
    The writing team on these movies are soo good. And its nice to see they kept them on.

  6. I think it looks great. That Bucky/Cap/Iron Man fight looked amazing! I hope they show Tony Stark’s side of the argument fairly. It’s the side that I’d be on if I lived in a world full of superpower guys.
