This fall, Marvel will attempt what few thought possible: After delaying its Inhumans film indefinitely (it was originally slated for summer 2019), the superstudio will bring Marvel’s Inhuman…
In case you missed it, yesterday there was kind of a huge event in the world of movies and geek culture.
Marvel Studios dropped the second trailer for the upcoming superhero saga Captain America: Civil War, which is another chapter in Marvel’s inter-connected Cinematic Universe.
The trailer alone would’ve been enough to cause fans to go nuts with anticipation, but what made this promo historic was the appearance of a new character.
Yes, I spoiled the surprise by mentioning Spider-Man in the title, but Spidey does steal the show in the trailer. If you’re not aware, Andrew Garfield, the previous actor to play Spider-Man, was replaced with a younger, relatively unknown actor named Tom Holland.
The trailer below is the very first time we see the “new” Spider-Man, and also the first line of dialogue Holland says as the beloved Marvel character.
Here’s the official movie synopsis –
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.
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd and Frank Grillo, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl.
Anthony & Joe Russo are directing with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee are the executive producers. The screenplay is by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. 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. – Marvel
