With the amount of hype surrounding this month’s blockbuster, Captain America: Civil War, it seemed improbable that the film would exceed many fans’ expectations, which pitted a fan favorite in Iron Man with another fan favorite in Captain America. However, the latest Marvel smash hit has thrived, as the film made $181.7 million domestically its first three days at the box office, which put it right behind the two Avengers films on that front and showed that an especially large number of moviegoers wanted to see Iron Man and Captain America duke it out on the big screen.

The directors of Captain America: Civil War, Joe and Anthony Russo, packed the film with a plethora of fight and chase scenes, but what fans aren’t shown is what the film would look like if it was shot in a first-person style from the perspective of Iron Man or Captain America. If fans were wondering what that might look like, a new short film that was shot from the perspective of Iron Man.

In the short film from Ismahawk, Iron Man is alerted to a disturbance at a nearby prison that is reported to be orchestrated by rogue members of S.H.I.E.L.D. Iron Man zooms over to the location only to find himself in a fight with several hostels. Finally, Captain America emerges as the two superheroes share some words before engaging in heated battle.

The makers behind the short film have also created short films prior to this first-person installment that included other superheroes battling it out. One such short film featured The Flash taking on Quicksilver, but it wasn’t shot in first-person form.

For the resources Ismahawk likely has, the end result is a fun, quick look into what Captain America: Civil War might have looked like had it been shot in the style of Hardcore Henry. The stare down between Iron Man and Captain America towards the end of the short film was interesting, as it was a perspective fans likely haven’t seen before. However, it is a short film, so the scenes involving Iron Man and Captain America are limited, which leaves the viewer wanting more.
