Leading up to the U.S. theatrical release of Marvel Studios’ first Phase 3 film in the ever growing Marvel Cinematic Universe, viewer expectation for the resulting fallout from the domestic dispute between Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) in Captain America: Civil War is at an all time high. A major motion picture event that may affect the direction of the MCU moving forward in unprecedented ways, the third Captain America movie may end up ranking among the biggest films based on Marvel Comics yet.
Following the last bit of MCU news coverage from WHiH News anchors Christine Everhart (Leslie Bibb) and Will Adams (Al Madrigal), fans of the eponymous superhero were left with the question of whether or not the mass levels of urban destruction caused by Captain America is worth the underlying idealism decidedly at the heart of his Civil War. In answer, the latest franchise trailer for the new film, and latest bit of WHiH coverage, provides opinion from both sides of the debate in question.
In the footage featured above, those who staunchly consider themselves members of #TeamCap can see the entire Captain America feature film saga unfold, starting with the events depicted in The First Avenger, before moving onto the setup for Civil War that was established by Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Then, in a new WHiH News viral video (see below), Everhart and Adams report on the toll that the impending battle is sure to take on the American people, with the two anchors reflecting on President Ellis’ take on the issue at hand, before citing a recent meeting between the current Commander-in-chief and one retired General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross (William Hurt).
As indicated by the footage in the above WHiH (and as we know from previously-released Civil War trailers), fans of Hurt’s turn in The Incredible Hulk as supporting antagonist General Ross will soon get to see him back as an active part of the MCU in the third Captain America film. As for the ensuing debate surrounding #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan, only time will tell which side will come out victorious in theaters by the end of next week.
Steve Rogers has certainly come a long way since his early days as a scrawny World War II applicant, but by the looks of things his latest turn in Civil War might yet prove to be the very pinnacle of his tenure as an Avenger. Until the film finally begins its U.S. theatrical release, here’s to both #TeamCap and #TeamIronMan – no matter which side you may choose to align yourself with as a casual viewer of the ensuing debate and immediate confrontation.
