‘Captain America: Civil War’ Promo Art Gives First Look at the New Superhero Teams!
Earlier this month we brought you confirmation on the two sides in Captain America: Civil War. On Team Captain America we had Hawkeye, Falcon, Bucky/Winter Soldier, Ant-Man and Scarlet Witch, while on Team Iron Man there was Vision, Black Widow, War Machine and Spider-Man. Today, we have some brand new Captain America: Civil War promo art that confirms those warring factions of Marvel superheroes with some interesting new twists!
Revealed over at Comic Book Movie, these new shots reiterate most of what we know from above, though there are some changes. Sadly, Spider-Man is not a part of this lineup (Marvel is reportedly highly protective of his look in the film) and has been replaced by Black Panther. Scarlet Witch is missing as well, replaced with Sharon Carter/Agent 13 (Emily VanCamp). You’ll have to look closely to see Ant-Man, but he’s there. It’s also our first look at the movie version of Redwing, Falcon’s bird sidekick from the comics who has been adapted to a drone for the film.
In addition to Spider-Man, there are still a number of characters we have yet to see from Captain America: Civil War. We know that in addition to those superheroes in these pictures, there’s still General Ross, Crossbones, Baron Zemo, Martin Freeman’s unnamed character and even Aunt May yet to have some official kind of reveal.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, here’s the official synopsis for Captain America: Civil War:
Captain America: Civil War’s plot picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
Captain America: Civil War opens in theaters on May 6, 2016.
