'Captain America: Civil War' news and casting updates: Crossbones, Black Panther and Ant-Man seen in first footage; bigger role for Spider-man?


In his appearance during Disney’s D23 event, Marvel president Kevin Feige shared a teaser trailer of the upcoming first movie in the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “Captain America: Civil War.”

After announcing some details for “Doctor Strange,” Feige called to the stage Anthony Mackie who first appeared as Falcon in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” Mackie, in turn, surprised the audience by announcing that lead star Chris Evans was in the room to showcase the first footage.

The clip shows Cap, Falcon, Black Widow and Bucky in action. According to IGN, the video opens with Crossbones attempting to blow off a truck. He threw a magnetic explosive to Cap’s shield, and in order to avoid the crowd, Cap tossed it into the air. When Crossbones unmasked himself, he then said to Cap, “He remembered you, you know. Your little pal Bucky.”

Afterwards, a scene from “Ant-Man” after the credits depicts Bucky telling his old friend that he remembers his mom, Sarah and how she used to put newspapers into his shoes. Then it cuts to William Hurt’s General Ross from “Incredible Hulk” saying to the hero that although the country owes him a lot, he now becomes a vigilante.

Then presumably showing the first of many fights, Cap tells Tony Stark, “That’s what this is about to you? Protection?” To which Iron Man quips with, “Sometimes I want to punch you in your perfect teeth.”

The video closes with scenes showing Black Panther and Ant-Man joining the star-studded film.

Notably missing from the sneak peek was Tom Holland’s Spider-Man but rumors have it that he may play a larger role in the movie than what has been originally presumed to be a brief appearance. He is said to have been seen around Germany together with the massive cast to film additional scenes.

Moreover, a listing from a company revealed that they are providing bedroom furniture for Peter Parker, suggesting that his new home may also be introduced before his standalone film in 2018.
