The first trailer for Marvel’s epic ensemble piece, Captain America: Civil War has finally been released.
Main stars, Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. took to Jimmy Kimmel’s late night chat show last night (24th November) to officially unleash the surprise trailer.
The film oversees a brutal conflict between Captain America (Evans) and Iron Man (Downey), as they find themselves on opposite sides of a debate to legislate superhero identities. After the fallout of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the government (led by The Incredible Hulk‘s General Ross) campaigns to make sure that those with super-powerful abilities are regulated.
However, the heroic Cap, who still worries about the ultimate outcome of the SHIELD/Hydra era, finds himself fighting the system – and some former allies – alongside the recently revived Bucky/The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie).
The film will also see a whole host of returning faces, including Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, William Hurt and Don Cheadle. Newcomers Daniel Bruhl and Martin Freeman will also star, alongside a possible appearance by the MCU’s new web-slinger, Tom Holland.
Directed by the Russo brothers, Captain America: Civil War is set to be released on 29th April 2016.
