Today is a day for Marvel fans to rejoice, for the Gods have blessed you all with another trailer. These past few days have seen Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War in the spotlight on almost all websites that cover nerd culture, and that was all leading up to the official debut of the second trailer for third installment in the Captain America franchise.
In this trailer, the tone was very serious. It shows some of the Avengers being forced to reflect on their past battles that took place in the previous films. Obviously, Iron Man is taking a proactive approach and going forward with the notion that Superheroes need to be in check by the Government, and he has a team behind him that follows the same ideas. On the other hand, Cap and his team don’t like that idea, and this leads to a brawl between heroes.
Some of the highlights from the trailer were seeing Black Panther in action, and also seeing that his suit was bulletproof. We got a nice little battle montage where Scarlett Witch is restraining Vision with her abilities, Crossbones (played by Frank Grillo) takes a shot at Captain America, Hawkeye shoots some arrows at someone (and Ant-Man is attached to one of those arrows, clever), and finally a little more scraping between Iron Man and Cap. All good stuff. Heartbreaking to watch, but still good stuff.
And of course, what some could argue were the best 5 seconds in the trailer (literally 5 seconds), we get our first glimpse of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man.
He steals the spotlight (and Captain America’s shield) at the end of the trailer, and says a quick “Hey Everyone”, causing fans worldwide to scream and wet their pants simultaneously.
The most obvious difference between this Spidey and previous ones is the costume. One thing you see right off the bat is that the eyes now have lenses in them, allowing him to squint, and maybe even do more later. It’s a sleeker and simpler design then we’ve ever seen in any live action iterations, and we gotta say, it’s not half bad. And aside from the costume, having an actor who is actually trained in dancing and acrobatics means we can expect less CGI and a more realistic representation of how the webslinger should actually be.
What do you guys think though? Does this trailer get you excited for the movie? Ready to see Spider-Man fight alongside The Avengers? Let us know in the comment section below.
