The second full and final trailer for Marvel’s juggernaut movie, “Captain America: Civil War” has just dropped and in less than two and a half minutes, the video clip was able to entice not just comic book fans but casual movie goers.
The newest iteration of Spider-Man has finally showed up in the trailer just before it ended. Played by Tom Holland, the web slinging character got in the middle of the action with what seems to be a more modern suit compared to what a normal college student would be able to make. Speculations that the new suit was actually upgraded by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) – who also happens to be the leader of the team that he apparently joined in. New and upgraded features include a wrist web shooter as well as a belt which can carry extra packs of web in case Parker gets in a tricky situation.
In the comic book version of the movie, Spiderman played a vital role in the overall story as he donned both sides of the panel and while it is still unknown whether he will also follow suit in the movie, the fact that Marvel has reclaimed the rights to one of their most well known characters from Sony has opened up a lot of possibilities in the ever expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Aside from the big Spider-Man reveal, the clip also showed Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) in full action for the first time chasing Bucky (Sebastian Stan) who will take a pivotal role in the Captain America-Iron Man show down. In a report by Collider, Boseman revealed that unlike any other Marvel superhero, his T’Challa will not have any origin story. Instead, he will be thrown right into the mix in the most unexpected way. Snippets of him in the rubble in the trailer may be what will trigger his pursuit of the Winter Soldier who is implied to be behind the attacks.
Other than the new characters, one of the other controversial scenes in the clip is Scarlett Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) putting Vision (Paul Bettany) down on his knees which shows just how powerful the new Avenger is. Vision, who is the culmination of Tony and Bruce Banner’s (Mark Ruffalo) dive into Artficial Intelligence in “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” is also the holder of one of the Infinity Gems which Thor (Chris Hemsworth) willingly left for him to keep. There was also a short sequence where Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) is seen riding one of Hawkeye’s arrow. This is the realization of the comic book promo art released earlier this year.
