 Ever since the trailer for “Captain America: Civil War”, superhero fans have been very excited.  This Marvel film is going to be different than any other superhero movie we have yet seen.  Instead of good vs evil, it’s good vs good!

After all the damage that the Avengers have caused, you know, saving the world and everything, the government decides to interfere.  They come up with a new system which bans superheroes from going into action unless they are officially called.  Captain America, along with a handful of other heroes, disagree with this act.  Also, the government wants Bucky Barnes (A.K.A. the Winter Soldier) in custody because he was a H.Y.D.R.A. assassin.  But Captain America, Bucky’s best friend, wants freedom for Bucky. 

 The government recognizes that Cap is rebelling and sends Iron Man (Tony Stark), who is all for the government's plan, to talk some sense into him.  Apparently, it doesn’t go so well.  In the trailers, we see Iron Man getting beat pretty badly by Captain America.  At one point, Iron Man says dramatically, “You just started a war.”

We see a couple of pretty crazy things in the two trailers that have been released.  First of all, something happens to Rhodey (War Machine), Iron Man’s friend.  In the trailer, he seems to be shot down by the Winter Soldier.  It’s hard to say if he’s dead, but it doesn’t look very good.  Second, Spider-Man is shown.  Iron Man is getting annoyed and suddenly yells, “Underoos!” which is apparently his nickname for Spider-Man. Spidey then jumps in out of nowhere and actually steals Captain America’s shield.  He lands on top of a car and says his first line in a Marvel film, “Hey, everyone.”  Black Panther, another awesome hero, is also shown, but he doesn’t have a very drastic entrance.    

The Avengers practically split into two teams, one led by Cap, and the other by Tony Stark.  It looks like Bucky, Falcon, Hawkeye, and Scarlet Witch have decided to join Captain America.  But Iron Man has some pretty strong contenders too, including Black Widow, War Machine, Vision, and newcomers Spider-Man and Black Panther.

The Captain America movie series seems like it’s going to end very successfully.  The two trailers combined have over one billion views on YouTube!  The film is set to be released on May 6, 2016, and it may just be the most successful superhero movie ever.  One thing is for sure, the Marvel Universe will never be the same.
