“I can do this all day.”
Captain America: Civil War had a hell of a trailer last time but this might be the best Marvel trailer in the MCU.
Cap stands, beaten, exhausted, and still fighting for what he believes in reiterates the simple virtue from his first adventure, “I can do this all day.” Whether or not he’s doing the right thing is another question entirely, one that will be carrying the heft of dramatic weight in the third (and likely final) Captain America film.
And these emotional gut punches look brutal. People love these movies because of their characters. Yes, it’s fun to see them fight each other for a moment or two but there is tragedy behind these circumstances. Do you look for oversight or do you trust yourself to do the right thing?
Thankfully you won’t walk away from this trailer just crying about Rhodey falling out of the sky or Wanda and Vision fighting. This is a trailer full of money shot moments.
Ant-Man and Hawkeye team up to do the infamous womb combo that made the famous Avengers comicbook cover. Black Panther tackles Winter Soldier off a motorcycle. Team Cap and Team Iron Man launch at each other like two football teams going head to head. I screamed in a public library from excitement. I am an adult.
Captain America: Civil War hits theaters May 6, 2015.
I feel like I’m forgetting something… Oh yeah. Underoos!
