This was a welcome surprise this morning! I’d heard there’d be some Captain America movie news on the Jimmy Kimmel show last night, but I don’t watch Jimmy Kimmel! I went to bed, I was tired! But sure enough, I wake up this morning and discover the flippin’ first full length trailer for Captain America: Civil War!
Great googily moogily that awesome! I thought I was riding high on Jessica Jones, and that maybe I didn’t need another Marvel movie so soon, but wow that trailer looks good. It’s got the action, it’s got the character building, it’s got some pretty amazing moments between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark. Oh man. This is gonna be stellar!
Apparently, yesterday was the day to reveal nifty art from upcoming movies! First up is the first official pic of Michael Fassbender in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie. He looks pretty neat. I don’t think he’s playing any of the characters from the video game.
Next up is a pretty awesome picture from Captain America: Civil War, that reveals the two sides of the upcoming conflict! There were more pictures released online, some of which were endorsed by Jeremy Renner, but this one is the best! I love the little mini Ant-Man hanging out on Cap’s shoulder.
If you aren’t already, it’s time to get excited for Civil War next year!
See what I did there? I hope so, because I’m rather proud of that pun. Either way, filming is under way for Captain America 3: Civil War, and photographic sleuths have captured the first images of Falcon and Crossbones in costume — and they look pretty great!
Falcon is sporting his full costume from the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron. I like it! Falcon has had some pretty bad costumes in his comic book career, so I’m excited for this more realistic, mechanical looking suit. I’m also grateful that they did mix in some red and white.
Actor Anthony Mackie has been great as Sam Wilson, so I’m excited to see him return for the threequel.
Actor Frank Grillo also looks pretty intense as supervillain Crossbones, a carry over from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Remember the semi-friendly SHIELD agent who turned out to be a bad guy, Brock Rumlow? He’s back as Crossbones in the new movie.
Though I’m a little disappointed in how suited up he is. Crossbones, especially recently, usually wears standard military-esque gear with just a skull mask. This costume is full-on super-villain.
And check out those gauntlets on his hands! Probably meant for punching the super soldier Captain America.
Civil War is going to be an exciting film! Too bad we have to wait a whole year! It’s a good thing we have Ant-Man to tide us over.
Dorkly is usually all about video games, but they understand superheroes too, and are just saying what we’re all thinking.
For my money, Captain America: Civil War is easily going to trounce Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice!
And on a personal note, sorry for being so quiet this week, everything! I’ve been pretty busy, and I might have some good news on the horizon! I’ll let you all know when and if I can!
I liked Mark Millar’s Civil War. It wasn’t perfect, there were parts I didn’t like, and it left a bad taste in a lot of fandoms’ mouths, but overall, and especially in hindsight, I liked Civil War. I’m not ashamed to admit it, nor am I embarrassed to have read it. Civil War was a pretty insane comic book endeavor, but it’s also probably the best Marvel Big Event of the past decade.
So when Marvel Studios announced that Captain America 3 was going to be Captain America: Civil War, I was absolutely thrilled!
I hope I’m not the only one. But reading around the web, I see a lot of people freaking out over the choice of Civil War. I understand that a lot of comic book fans apparently hated the story. By all means, everybody’s entitled to their opinions. But hating a comic book that came out nearly a decade ago and worrying that Marvel Studios is making a mistake are two very different things. I think Civil War is the perfect storyline going forward, and if you’ll join me after the jump, I’ll tell you why.
