Nothing will stop the much awaited release of the first trailer of “Captain America: Civil War,” which, according to Collider, will be attached to the weekend premiere of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” on Dec. 17.
When the upcoming Marvel completion of the “Captain America” trilogy was done filming, fans were all abuzz with excitement for the arrival of its first movie trailer. But, despite all the clamor, no official trailer came out. Instead, Marvel Studios has been releasing brief footages at expos and conventions, the first one at the D23 expo by Disney earlier this year. It took a positive reception, but with some questioning the absence of wall-crawling hero Spider-Man. However, only those who attended the event saw the footage.
Another footage was shown at the AsiaPop Comic Con in Manila, Philippines, similar to that seen at the D23, but with new and longer scenes like that of the fight between Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) where the latter takes a pounding from the former.
Understandably then, anticipation built up until an initial false alarm was sounded. Heroic Hollywood reported that Cinema Park, a Russian chain of cinemas, revealed that the expected trailer would be attached to the premiere of the James Bond film, “Spectre,” scheduled in early November. Collider, however, found out through its own sources that the release was to be attached to the premiere showing of another big Disney movie, the latest in the “Star Wars” franchise.
It is a wily move for Disney to attach the first trailer of its biggest movie to come in 2016 to the biggest movie coming out in 2015. This move will help to ensure a lasting impression of the “Captain America” film on the millions who will be flocking to see “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
This newest Captain America film addition is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, who have done the same for the previous movie, “Winter Soldier.” It was written by Christopher Markus and Steven McFeely. The film also stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey, Jr., Paul Rudd, Daniel Bruhl, Anthony Mackie, Chadwick Boseman, and Sebastian Stan, picking up the story at the point where the “Avengers 2” left it.
New heroes join the Avengers, but the group is split into two factions. Team Iron Man of Pro-Registration want more accountability of heroes and more organization in terms of when, who, and how heroes can intervene in their fight to protect humanity. The team consists of Iron Man, War Machine, Black Widow, Spider Man, and Black Panther. Captain America’s team, meanwhile, is against it. They are composed of the Cap, The Winter Soldier, Hawkeye, Falcon, Agent 13, Ant-Man, and Scarlet Witch. It is rumored that the Black Widow might be doing some double agent dealings in the movie.
Release of “Captain America: Civil War” is set for May 6, 2016.
