The new Captain America trailer has just been released, and fans get to see the first glimpse of Marvel’s new Spider-Man. Tom Holland was previously announced as the new face of the character, but nobody had even seen a glimpse of him in his costume until now.
Captain America: Civil War is the third installment in the Cap’s franchise. This time, it is war between two Avengers: The Cap and Iron Man. In the last movie, Steve Rogers refused to kill his one-time best friend, now The Winter Soldier, despite him being evil. It turned out he had been brainwashed, and Steve believes he can be saved. Of course, Tony Stark does not quite see it that way, and neither does the rest of S.H.I.E.L.D.
However, the latest Captain America trailer suggests that this is not the only reason the two are now at loggerheads. They have never really fully gotten along, but now their personal views are affecting their ability to act as a team. When Iron Man says they need to be put in check, The Cap says they are still the “safest hands” for the world.
The problem is the Avengers’ efforts have just caused more collateral damage while saving the world, and it is too soon after the incident in Age of Ultron. Political pressure is mounting up, and the team has no choice but to scale back the amount it does. Tony Stark understands this, along with a few others, but Steve Rogers wants free reign over the world to keep it protected. The start of the trailer highlights the damage caused, and it is rightly pointed out that people are afraid. They may be saving the world, but they’re also causing death and destruction at the same time.
In all honesty though, Captain America is getting blown back by Iron Man every time.????

Spider-Man is not the only character outside of the Avengers line-up making an appearance, according to ABC News. Ant-Man is also coming in following the success of his standalone movie last year. There are characters from previous Avengers movies coming in, including Black Widow, Scarlett Witch, and Hawkeye.

The new Captain America trailer, just released on Thursday morning, has been the first glimpse of Spider-Man, and it looks like he is on Iron Man’s side. There is just a shot of him in costume, just as Iron Man decides he has had enough battling with The Cap. Steve finds his shield is taken away from him and his hands are tied together in a spider’s web. Spider-Man then appears with The Cap’s shield and a simple “Hey, everyone.”

It truly is a civil war between the Avengers and others within S.H.I.E.L.D, as they take sides between the leader of the team and the best inventor they have. It may be surprising to some that Black Widow decides to take Tony’s side, but it does not look like a peaceful decision, as she tells him to watch his back. Hawkeye stands with Steve, along with Scarlett Witch, which is not surprising considering she spent most of Age of Ultron blaming Tony Stark for her parents’ deaths.

Unsurprisingly, Bucky/The Winter Soldier will take his friend’s side, along with The Falcon. It appears that the Winter Soldier will shoot down War Machine and perhaps killing him by the looks of the trailer. This could be the turning point for Tony, as he realizes that they do not always do good, even though they believe they are fighting for the greater good.
Also Spiderman in the new Captain America trailer!!! It’s a good day!
