Between Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War, 2016 is the Year of Superheroes Fighting Superheroes. But Civil War seems to be the film having more fun with the idea: Sure, Justice will have Batman and Superman knocking the crap out of each other, but the new Civil War trailer features Ant-Man shrinking down to the point where he can land on Iron Man’s shoulder. And That’s only like the fifth coolest thing that happens.
The initial setup of Civil War is simple. All the battles The Avengers have fought led to massive collateral damage and casualties, and the government wants to come up with a system that can contain them. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) is all in favor of this, but Captain America (Chris Evans) believes he’s the one who needs to make the superheroic leadership calls. As the tension builds, heroes take sides, including newcomer Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), and a clash is inevitable.
Oh yeah, and Spider-Man shows up.
Captain America: Civil War arrives May 6 to melt your face with comic book awesomeness.
