Movie Review: Captain America: Civil War, starring Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr.

Captain America: Civil War

Screenwriter: Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely
Cast: Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd

“United we stand. Divided we fall.”

In 2011, Super Soldier Steve Rogers made his debut in Joe Johnston’s Captain America: The First Avenger. Influenced by Raiders of the Lost Ark and Johnston’s own 1991 film, The Rocketeer, The First Avenger was designed as a ’40s adventure serial. 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, was a ’70s political thriller in the vein of Three Days of the Condor and All the President’s Men.

The Russos’ follow-up, Captain America: Civil War, is influenced by movies like The Godfather Part II and The Empire Strikes Back, sprawling sagas that tell intricate stories where every character has an arc. And like those enduring classics, Civil War is a gripping, emotionally resonant film that enriches and deepens a mythology and our connection to it. Its greatness lies in the groundwork laid by its predecessors; twelve films that comprise an unprecedented experiment in long-form storytelling, the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Captain America Civil War Team Cap

Captain America: Civil War finds our Steve Rogers leading a newly formed Avengers to continue to protect the world from lethal threats. But no good deed goes unpunished, and when a routine mission to apprehend a terrorist goes horribly wrong, the United Nations installs a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. This fractures the team, with Steve running a team who is against government oversight and Tony Stark who makes a surprising decision to fully support the system of checks and balances.

Last week we shared the top ten things we learned Team Iron Man said at the Captain America: Civil War press conference. From character evolutions to the new technological advances to telling a more engrossing story, Marvel Studios’ latest film is already being praised as the best comic book movie ever.

There are no successful superhero film franchises under one roof like the ones over at Marvel Studios. Time and time again the studio has repeated its success, risen to beat expectations, and even found ways to reinvent itself to keep their respective franchises fresh and engaging. These sequels are no longer sequels, they are political thrillers, fantasy adventures, buddy cops comedies, heist capers, space operas, and much more to come.

Now the studio will christen Phase 3 of the MCU with a bold new storytelling direction. Starting off with Captain America: Civil War, where our heroes and their beliefs come into conflict as Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) will engage in an ideological battle that will determine the fate of the Avengers.

Captain America Civil War Team Cap

Disney/Marvel has released the second official trailer for Captain America: Civil War, the closing installment of the Captain America film trilogy. Chris Evans returns to reprise his role as the titular Captain America, who finds himself at odds with his best friend Tony Stark aka Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) when he decides to back a government initiative that would allow nations oversight on when they could deploy the Avengers. The conflict puts these two heroes at odds and forces them to recruit fellow Avengers and friends to fight on their respective sides.

We’ve recently posted two sets of posters that reveal who is on Team Cap and who is on Team Iron Man. As you may have already seen in the trailers, there has been a certain webslinging hero who has been missing from the entire marketing campaign. So will he make an appearance in this trailer? The short answer: Yes!

Watch the new trailer here below.

Captain America: Civil War

With a title like Captain America: Civil War, heroes that were once allies are now enemies fighting for a cause. In this case, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) believes that the Avengers have put the world through enough with their vigilante actions and unchecked heroics, and supports a new initiative where a governing body would determine when they would deploy the heroes. However, Captain America (Chris Evans) believes in the opposite. Then there is the fact that his friend, the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) has been discovered, and there are governments who want him to stand trial for his crimes. A lot will happen that will force these two to go to battle against each other, and now, a new set of released posters will give us an idea of who is for a government oversight and who is against it.

Check out the six new character posters below.

New ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Images Confirm Martin Freeman’s Character

Captain America: Civil War Captain America Iron Man

As the title may suggest, Captain America: Civil War will be an adaptation of the Marvel comic book story arc of the same name that pits its title character against Iron Man, a friend and ally, over differing ideals of how The Avengers should be governed. Such an event would require more than just the amount of characters you would see in these solo films. This is an ensemble event, and as such you would need to bring major characters from previous films to go into battle amongst one another.

But you’ll also have to introduce some new characters, and Civil War does just that by adding Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Helmut Zemo (Daniel Brühl), Spider-Man (Tom Holland), and a mysterious character to be played by Martin Freeman. There were a few rumors surrounding Freeman’s character, one of the most notable ones being that he is a U.S. representative for the fictional African nation of Wakanda, where T’Challa aka Black Panther hails from. This has been confirmed in a brand new report. There are also a few new images to look at which feature Frank Grillo in full-on heavy Crossbones gear, Iron Man and Captain America looking into each other’s eyes, and Scarlet Witch conjuring some chaos magic. Check it out in the image gallery here below.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ Featurette Details Rift Between Cap and Iron Man

Captain America: Civil War Featurette

As its title suggests Captain America: Civil War will center on the infighting between two of the greatest Avengers: Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). It will still be a film that focuses mainly on its titular hero, while also marking the first time that a hero like Iron Man will appear in a role bigger than a cameo. With the world recovering from the events of Ultron’s attack on the Earth, Sokovia Accords was created in order to regulate the deployment of enhanced individuals, particularly the Avengers, orchestrated by world governments.

We saw a little bit of that in action in the first trailer for the film, and now a new featurette that can be seen in the Phase 2 Box Set helps explain how it all led up to Civil War in greater detail, and how the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s newest hero will play the role of the “monarch.” Check it out below.
