The Captain America: Civil War trailer has finally surfaced and it ramps up the Marvel cinematic universe to a fever pitch. The film 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.
Judging by the trailer it would seem that Cap’s best pal, Bucky is at the centre of this espionage tale that puts members of the Avengers against each other. More interestingly, it draws the battle lines between both camps with Cap, Scarlett Witch, Falcon, Hawkeye and Bucky against Iron Man, War Machine and quite possibly Black Widow.
The Captain America: Civil War trailer also gives us a glimpse of the Black Panther and the return of General Ross himself along with Cap, Bucky and Iron Man in an epic two on one beat down.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens in theatres May 2016.
