Captain America Beats Down Iron Man in First Civil War Trailer

Captain America will find Bucky and go rogue in Captain America: Civil War.

From the moment that Captain America: Civil War was first announced, fans of the iconic hero have been wondering what the catalyst for the film's hero-on-hero conflict would be. After years of fighting alongside the likes of Iron Man and Black Widow, what could drive everyone's favorite stars-and-stripes do-gooder to go rogue? The answer to that question was revealed last night in the film's premier trailer.

Debuting on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the new trailer made it clear that Civil War will focus heavily on the fallout of Cap finding and rescuing his formerly brain-washed friend Bucky "Winter Soldier" Barnes. Apparently acting against the wishes of the international community which want Bucky dead after a destructive incident, Cap fights to keep him safe. This triggers a response from the government which wants to implement new restrictions on the Avengers to combat perceptions that superheroes are little better than vigilantes. Cap refuses to cooperate, a move that puts him into violent conflict with his several of his former teammates, most notably Iron Man.

I'm going to go ahead and say that I kind of feel like Bucky being the source of this huge rift is a tad on the weak side. In the original Civil War comic, the movement to register and restrict superhumans came after a bout between some minor heroes and villains destroyed a school, resulting in hundreds of deaths. Captain America's ideological stance against registration made more sense in that context. He didn't feel that heroes who have risked their lives should be punished because of a tragedy. Having him be willing to risk the lives of all of his friends just to save Bucky though? I know loyalty's kind of a big deal to him, but it still feels like a bit of a stretch in my opinion. That said, I'll withhold judgement until I see that actual movie. You can only show so much in a trailer after all, and the reasons behind everything will likely be much more fleshed out. And even if they aren't, the trailer certainly makes it look like there will be plenty more to love about Civil War. While we don't see any of the new Spider-Man, we catch our first glimpse of Black Panther and get some great looks at the action, which already looks insanely excellent.

Captain America: Civil War is currently scheduled to release on May 6th, 2016.

Pause at 1.51 to get a glimpse of Black Panther!

I admit I chuckle at the beat up at the end.

Also if the whole plot center on Winter Soldier, shouldn't he give himself up if he want to do the right thing or to not make it worse?

damn, thats one dark movie. they are going from comedic to really serious. certainly will watch it since i have seen every one of them. you are almost obliged to watch them all since they are pretty much connected.

I don't think Bucky being a fugitive is the only reason Cap is going rogue. Might just be the last straw. There's already tension between Stark and Rogers. Add in General Ross and Stark pushing for more oversight and control of the Avengers (after the whole SHIELD being run by HYDRA) and then top it off with a kill order on Cap's oldest friend.

Can't wait to see it.

Wow, that was amazing, especially all the scenes with Ant Man in them. I mean wow, it may as well be called "Ant Man: Civil War"

You win this thread in my book. Here, have all the cookies.

Speaking of Antman, it will be interesting to see how he is used in the movie. It's one thing when he is the focus of his own movie, another when he will be fighting amongst all the other heroes. I can see a comedy scene with his introduction to the other heroes with a person getting beat up by seemingly nothing, only for him to appear out of no where and go "sup".

And that time

hulked out, total game changer. But what side will Parker be on? Will Iron Man have a secret weapon in his pocket, like say, a clone of a certain demigod?

I really don't get why they went Civil War route. I Mean the whole war was based on Iron Man wanting heroes and mutants to register with the government, thus giving up their secret identities.

Except there are no mutants and Black widow already dumped all of Shield's files online in Winter Soldier.
And its not like captain America, iron man, hulk and Thor kept a low profile.

So what's the point of all this?! Seems very contrived.

Just have to point out that this is not really accurate. Tony didn't want any heroes to register, even going so far as to stage an attack on himself while at a congressional meeting to try to prevent it. When it failed however Tony had to register because it was the legally proper thing to do. He probably would have been actively fighting to repeal it if he wasn't put in charge of SHIELD and the rogue superhuman task force. By contrast, Cap defied the law and went "rogue" because he felt the law was wrong and needed to be defied.

Love the Cap/Winter Soldier tag team action.

Meh. Still haven't seen a couple of the movies, Agents of SHIELD or Agent Carter. People tell me I need to see these, but I seem to be muddling through just fine.

And now they are talking about checks and consequences. Their identities being secret isn't necessary for that, they're still vigilantes. In one trailer, this movie has made the plot something like ten orders of magnitude smarter than the comics.

Scarim Coral:

Perhaps that's the finale? TWS still looks somewhat out of his mind in this movie, it's quite possible he's not thinking clearly. Maybe the big end is that he realises the carnage this whole thing is causing.

It wouldn't even be too far off from the comics to go that route.

Scarim Coral:

The trailer strongly implied that they didn't want to take him in alive, and that defiantly would go against Caps morals. The trailer seems to be going down a shoot vigilantes on site. At least Tony doesn't seem to be the leader of the opposition, but just a part of it. Ross makes a much better morally ambiguous leader. Gives Tony the chance to correct the mistake rather than be branded as unforgivable by some like the roll Spider-Man played in the original Civil War.

It seems to me, given the story of Captain America's creation in the movies at least, it would seem to Cap somewhat inappropriate to blindly take orders from anyone. He's too powerful to be in the service of those whose aims are unworthy. He need's a free hand, his greatest strength is his moral compass. Who would command him? The military? There's a moral joke. Local cops? Some sort of senate oversight comity? Everyone knows the gilded halls of political power are morally incorruptible and ethically unimpeachable after all, right?

The mere disagreement with Captain America should give at least an ethical person pause for consideration. To fight - physically - Captain America over such a disagreement is the ultimate sign that he's right in the first place. He's a rational character as super heroes go, easily talked to provided you don't stop talking.

Yeah, I'm not seeing the primary 'angle' of this being Cap trying to save Bucky and that causing a rift. If you look at what Ross hands Cap across the table it says 'Sokovia Accords', so I'm guessing in the wake of the disaster in Sokovia and the fact the Avengers <notably Stark and Banner> were directly responsible for it with their creation of Ultron, the world demands oversight of the Avengers. Tony of course agrees because...well, he's responsible. Saving Bucky is likely, as others have said, part of the 'last straw' thing for Cap, but it seems to me the trailer hints very heavily that what happened in Sokovia was the defining event where the world governments finally say 'Enough'.

Wow dark and gritty hmm.

So heroes are not allowed to be heroes and must be controlled by the Surveillance state power mongers, ties right in with the new Bond Movie heh.

Also how in the world would rules breaking Tony Stark fit into that big thick rule book that was passed across the table there? I guess they needed Tony on the baddie team for awhile until the things become morally clear transition part of the film.

Captcha: Dance all Night

I'm trying to make this the only trailer I'll watch of this movie before seeing it in theaters. I've been pretty sensitive to movie spoilers since the trailers to Star Wars 7 came out, andI really want my mindset to these movies to be as 'pure' as possible.

Well, this got darker. Hopefully, it handles the characters better than the comic. I wonder how Black Panther wound up on Iron Man's side, and Hawkeye on Cap's. And OH MY GOD, DID THEY KILL RHODEY?! PLEASE DON'T KILL RHODEY!!!

Yep. I saw that in a second viewing of the trailer. And don't forget Hulk and Iron-Man wrecking up, I think, either Johannesburg or Cape Town. That's more evidence of more oversight for superheroes.

Exactly. If Stark finds out about Bucky, he'll be too pissed to care he was brainwashed at the time.
Come to think of it, Bucky might still be under mind controlled. Baron Zemo's supposed to be in this one.

"I'm going to go ahead and say that I kind of feel like Bucky being the source of this huge rift is a tad on the weak side. "

True that! But hey; we at least know him! ;)
Let's hope we can see it for ourselves ASAP :D

The epic story about one heroes massive mancrush on a dude that causes a civil war between him and his previous mancrush.

Kidding aside it looked good. Loved the random Blank Panther, I'm interested in how they're going to rope him into this.

I wonder how many people get killed off. The roster seems a bit too huge with even more new heroes being set up in future movies. A lot of the scenes are pretty brutal. Although, Age of Ultron also had a dark trailer, but it ended up being pretty lighthearted.

I wonder how long they are going to hold off giving us a glimpse of Spiderman. We got a two second glance at Black Panther. You have to wonder whether Bucky really is worth fighting for or is Cap straight up delusional. Colour me intrigued.

Brainwashing counts as mental duress. The law says you can't really be held accountable for your actions under such conditions. From Bucky's and Cap's perspective, they want Bucky dead for something he wasn't responsible for.

Great, finally some Black Panther footage; was disappointed when they pushed back his movie to later in the decade. Bet he's angry about that whole Wakanda incident in Age of Ultron <.<

And with Jessica Jones they just spent an entire season on that exact topic.

I can agree with Stew on Bucky being the main thing feeling kind of weak. Now, I totally understand Captain America standing up for him and defending him--especially when those cops are coming in with orders to kill and not even attempt to take him alive. If Captain America explained the situation and they still come in guns blazing, even if Bucky says he's willing to surrender, then by all means, take them down.
But at the same time, if the government is calling for Bucky's arrest, then it's kind of hard for me to believe Captain America would not stand down. He'd support Bucky, sure, and fight on his behalf in court, but straight-out treason over it? Hm...I believe there's going to be a bit more revealed. The government over watch thing is probably a good start.

Love Iron Man's line, "So was I," because it just stings. It sums up everything that is wrong with the whole situation they've all found themselves in.

Wonder how Black Panther will play into all of this. Captain America is chasing him it seems, but why?

So, looks like they will continue the tradition of the Captain America movies being really good. Nice.

I might be able to piece together who is on what side if I watched it a few time, but I think I'll wait till the movie comes out and not make guesses. I did spot Black Panther, Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch among the cast, though. I'm curious how this plays out.

It's a bit more involved. Assuming the cut of the trailer is accurate, Buck was either framed in an attack post A:AoU, or is delusional and performed the attack. Combined with the events from Slovakia you get the events in the trailer. My bet is either a new player or Ross himself is the power behind the attack and did it specifically to get the Slovakia Accords(which almost certainly have a no international heroics without permission of the host country clause) passed. Perhaps a Dr. DOOM analogue?

Geez! With all the bromance hormones raging between Cap, Tony, and Bucky maybe it would be simpler for the three of them to just get a room! ;)

OT: Avengers 2.5 indeed.

I'm on board with this movie. Captain America is the only series in the Marvel movie universe that started off good and actually improved.

I don't buy that it will "just" be Cap defending Bucky that triggers the full blown Civil War. Certainly Hawkeye, Falcon and the Scarlet Witch will need motivation beyond "Hey, let's help Steve out! Nevermind that doing so will make us internationally wanted fugitives."

Ldude893:

Either that or

Seeing the red streaks in Ross's hair when it was almost straight white in the last movie, he looks younger......has he done something with Banner's research perhaps?

Basement Cat:

Taking a guess, granted with a lot of hope they don't make the mistakes the comics made: I don't think Bucky is the cause of this or the prime motivating factor, but rather Cap getting caught red handed. The comics rushed what was honestly a very divisive issue with no clear answer, but both sides doing very stupid things: IM giving in and using it as a platform for a small number of projects he'd had in mind, and Cap fighting back with no plan but resist until people stop being stupid.

A better plan for the movie would be Steve is unsure as to the right thing to do about government oversight in light of recent events, but is also aware that Bucky wouldn't be given the benefit of the doubt so keeps his deprograming sessions hidden, but gets found out and is charges with harboring a fugitive. Since he sees himself as protecting someone from getting executed unjustly, he fights back with better reason than the comics.

Sadly though that would probably end with Bucky surrendering instead of Cap, and the loss of probably the only good part to Civil war: Cap surrendering because he realized they were only fighting to fight, and even winning that wouldn't win the argument.

medv4380:
The trailer seems to be going down a shoot vigilantes on site.

At the very least, with this instance where Bucky's wanted for some major-ass crimes.

Stark has almost always been written as a conservative character, since that was basiclaly his intended design: a conservative written in an era where there was massive antipathy towards them, but who the liberals would cheer. Stark has been both small government and big government in his time.

And if we're just going on the movies (which we should, but I'm just saying), we've already established Tony Stark will do stupid things to try and make his last stupid thing right. It's totally in-character for him to sign up in grief/anger/responsibility mode.

Bucky may still feel guilt for his actions.

I get where you're coming from, but still.

Imperioratorex Caprae:

And with Jessica Jones they just spent an entire season on that exact topic.

One in which the people who did the things still felt largely responsible.

Basement Cat:

I don't know why we need theories. There was clearly already a rift in Age of Ramma Lamma Ding Dong. They actually fought--briefly--because of it. They already have grounds for opposition.

Something Amyss:

Oh absolutely.

My point was that they REALLY nailed the whole mental duress angle, and the effects of it, rape, PTSD and such, so damn well with that series, IMO. Horrible topics, but I thought it worked, and I have some personal experience with conditioning and PTSD as well as some other topics covered... (not mind control though).

Yeeeeah, I've kind of dealt with a few of those things before as well. I ended up stopping the series several times while watching because while the specifics weren't hitting close to home, the responses were. If that makes sense. I had trouble putting into words how the show made me feel.

I suppose the real question is whether this is actually played with in the movies. So far, pretty much everyone in the MCU has been mindfucked on some level, and it's largely been remarked upon in jokes only.

I have to question the same thing. I liked the comic aspect of MCU movies but after Daredevil and Jessica Jones, I really do want to see a bit more from the movies as well. And I also had to stop watching here and there for a bit for the same reasons, so it makes total sense to me. Also some of the experiment vids reminded me of horrible doctor visits as a child because of chronic migraines (still to this day, 30 years later, they have no idea why I get them).
