Two interesting clips have been revealed from the forthcoming “Captain America: Civil War” courtesy of Marvel Entertainment and Marvel UK. One of them shows the Avengers discussing the consequences of accepting government oversight on the actions of the superheroes. The second shows the team Iron Man unable to restrain Bucky Barnes. These are meant to trump up the anticipation for “Civil War” and it does so, successfully.
The first clip begins with Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) saying that when someone dies under their watch they don’t give up. Captain America adds that the oversight document from the United Nations that they have been asked to sign takes away their right to choose when and where to act. Captain America also says that like any organisation, the UN is run by people with agendas and agendas change all the time. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) argues that if they don’t sign now, they’ll be forced to do so later.
The second clip is from an action sequence in the movie. It shows several members of Team Iron Man trying to restrain super soldier Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and failing to do so. The fight sequences are absolutely stunning. Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp) and Natasha Romanoff (Scarlet Johansson) try to restrain the seemingly unstoppable Bucky Barnes and they are largely ineffective. Iron Man steps in with his gadgets and he’s no match for the Winter Soldier. Only T’Challa/Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) seems to keep up with his energy.
Both the clips are great, but the first one is the most significant. Accountability of superheroes is an issue that Zack Snyder’s “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” also dealt with. But there wasn’t much clarity, which is not the case here. The issue is dealt with in a very straightforward fashion with clever expository dialogue.
Anthony and Joe Russo’s “Captain America: Civil War” looks set to be an intense, action-filled and emotional superhero showdown. It feels more easier to comprehend than the more dark and obscure “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.” The movie will be released on May 6 in the United States. The new Spider-Man is also introduced in “Civil War.”
