Something big is coming to theaters in 2016. Captain America: Civil War has released its teaser trailer and it looks like bad blood is brewing among the Marvel superheroes.
Chris Evans a.k.a Captain America and Robert Downey Jr., who plays Iron Man, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday and teased fans with the premiere of the Captain America: Civil War trailer and a movie poster in which the two superheroes looked like ready to fight each other.
“It looks like you two are very intensely in love there,” Kimmel joked as he stared at the poster.

In the trailer, the superheroes are now divided into two factions – one led by Captain America (Steve Rogers) whose mission it is to fight injustice without interference from the government. The other group is led by Iron Man (Tony Stark), who chose to side with the government’s new system of accountability.
With the disaster they faced in the Age of Ultron, it is only reasonable that Stark would want to let the government get involved in their operations. Rogers feels differently and is soon branded a rogue and vigilante.
What made the two opposing teams of Avengers totally drift apart is Rogers’ pal Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) also known as Winter Soldier. Much of their conflict stems from the fact that Captain America chooses to protect Bucky from the authorities. Bucky, who was a villain in the previous Captain America movie, is now being tracked down by the government to pay for his crimes. However, he is able to convince Rogers that he is a changed man.
Captain America: Civil War gives us insight on how these superheroes differ from each other with regard to their individual concepts of good and evil. We also see how their personal values affect their decisions, even though they all share the same mission to defend humanity.

“You know I wouldn’t do this if I had any choice — but he’s my friend,” Rogers says to Stark who is visibly hurt and surprised by his words. “So was I,” Stark says from inside his Iron Man suit before launching into one of the most anticipated fight scenes in the movie: Iron Man vs. Captain America vs. Bucky. The trailer also reveals that Captain America is joined by Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, Falcon, and Bucky Barnes. Iron Man’s team consists of War Machine and the newest member of the crew, Black Panther.

Black Panther’s debut in Civil War is pretty impressive as he tries to take down the Winter Soldier with his powerful flying kick, which sends Bucky crashing into some crates. In another adrenaline-packed scene, the Black Panther is seen chasing Bucky while also being chased by Captain America in a tunnel. Black Panther, portrayed by Chadwick Boseman, is surely going to be a frightening character to watch. With his power and amazing skills, Captain America had better watch his back.

Aside from Black Panther, it seems Spider Man may appear in Civil War as well. The rumors started circulating when a character in red was spotted in the background of a Falcon scene. Could it be Spider Man? It is not clear whether the figure was indeed that of Spider Man as it was quite pixelated. Some people have speculated that it could be Ant Man, who also wears red and is a member of the team.
The only way to find the answers to these questions is to watch the movie when it premieres in theaters. Captain America: Civil War is scheduled to hit cinemas on May 6, 2016.
