Marvel has released some new images from ‘Captain America: Civil War’ featuring members of both Team Captain America and Team Iron Man. The images were first seen in last week’s Empire Magazine and while low res versions have been floating around the web, these hi-res ones were worth the wait.
The photographs provide some great behind the scenes look at the production as well as some of the superheroes in and out of their suits. As you can see, Scarlett Johansson continues to do what Black Widow does best – that is, beat the crap out of people. There’s also a great shot of Chris Pine and Sebastian Stan as they talk to the Russo brothers in what looks to be inside a quinjet. One of the best images, however, has to be the shot of Team Iron Man lined up as they prepare for the face-off with Team Captain America.
Considering the film is about 2 months away from dropping in theaters, it is a bit surprising the start of the promotional deluge has yet to begin, so this batch of images does help quench the thirst for those who want to see more. With so many superheroes in one film, it’s easy to think this would basically be Team Avengers: Civil War, but the Russo brothers have stated that this is unequivocally a Captain America film. The big question remains: How close will the film follow the comic arc that the story is based upon? Those who have read the comic version know the ending became a game changer and with a promise of a “controversial” ending, will the film follow the same path?
Guess we’ll have to wait and see when ‘Captain America: Civil War’ is released on May 6. Until then, enjoy the images below!
Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
