Captain America: Civil War Trailer Breakdown
Marvel have finally made their move by launching the second trailer of the much anticipated Captain America: Civil War and it is simply stunning. The superheroes will have to pick sides and friends will be pitched against each other. Captain America: Civil War will not be like any other conventional Marvel movie, it will most definitely not have an happy ending in which no blood is shed. Not one but multiple superheroes could be on line to have their last appearance in Marvel Cinematic Universe. There have been many speculating the death of Captain America, Winter Soldier or War Machine but they are not the only ones to be in danger. The war is coming and it will have repercussions on the entire MCU. The trailer having so many epic sequences and a few easter eggs requires a breakdown. so let’s begin,
Bucky Barnes in Cryogenic Chamber
The trailer opens with a heavily guarded facility somewhere in Russia in which Bucky Barnes is having a cryosleep in a cryogenic chamber. We already know from Captain America: Winter Soldier that he was designed to be an assassin and a weapon of destruction. He was usually subjected to cryosleep after he finished his infamous missions. As Cap says, “We try to save as many people as we can. Sometimes that doesn’t mean everybody, but you don’t give up.”
General Ross gives reality check
General “thunderbolt” Ross has a meeting with team Captain America and shows them the extent of damage. The clip of the Chitauri Attack, the Fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Sokovia. This is when Captain America has a choice to sign up for the controversial Sokovia Accords. This treaty was one of the main reasons for the impending war. This scene is followed by UN building blowing up and T’Challa was one of the attendants of the meet. Iron Man drops from a helicopter in his new Mark XLVI armor and says “that’s why I am here.“
The Raft ?
The Helicarriers are seem to have been replaced by Subcarriers. This Subcarrier looks like The Raft describes in the comics as “one of the four original supervillain prisons“. The cells look empty but it might be a plan by Tony Stark to lock up the big bad villains.
Rage of Black Panther
This scene is a continuation of the one we saw in the first trailer where Black Panther chases down Bucky Barnes. The incredible athleticism of the Wakandan prince is apparent as he leaps over cars and outruns Captain America to stop Winter Soldier. He seems to be very pissed off by the actions of Winter Soldier which can be seen in another part of the trailer where we see the two fighting it out on a rooftop before bullets are showered on Black Panther by a helicopter. These bullets simply bounce off his Vibranium suit.
The fall of War Machine
“I was wrong about you, the whole world was wrong about you.“ says Iron Man after removing the metal mask of the fallen War machine. It is unclear whether the shot causes serious injury or death of War Machine but he is definitely in great trouble in the movie.
The War has begun
The lines have been drawn and there is only one thing left: War. Captain America says to Iron Man ” This doesn’t have to end in a fight, Tony“, Iron Man replies with a big left hand that tosses Cap on the floor. He is in no mood to negotiate anymore and says ” you just started a war“. The heroes are finally at war, Scarlet Witch tries to fight off the powerful Vision followed by Hawkeye firing multiple arrows at Ant Man who shrinks and dodges them. “I can do this all day“ says Captain America after taking a major beating from Ironman. Cap is not afraid of bullies, this scene was reminiscent of the one we say in the first part of Captain America.
The moment many Marvel fans have been waiting for a long time. Spiderman in his tight red and blue costume flings above Cap and takes Cap’s shield with him before making a superhero landing.
