Many have been waiting for it, and now it has finally arrived. Disney and Marvel have finally released the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War, and it pits Chris Evans as Captain America vs. Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. To say it is "epic" is quite the understatement, as it has proven to be well worth the wait.
Marvel is purposely getting across the point in this first trailer for the film that it is indeed the third movie in the Captain America franchise. Coming along for the ride is a gigantic cast of big-time actors as huge Marvel characters, but the movie itself is about the hero with the shield.
As revealed by Superhero Hype, the film picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Cap is leading a team of "new" Avengers to protect humanity in the world. Check out the trailer below.
Another international incident has left a lot of damage at the hands of the Avengers trying to save the world and keep everyone protected. This is when the government steps in on things and decides that something needs to be done.
Stepping in with the government is Tony Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man, who believes that something needs to change. This leads to a major rift between the two superheroes as a deadly new villain begins to threaten everyone's existence.
Along with the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War came a few awesome posters that are only the beginning of the promotional onslaught.
