All the Cool Stuff in the New Captain America: Civil War Trailer

By Germain Lussier on at

The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s new Spider-Man may be the biggest bombshell from the latest trailer for Captain America: Civil War, but there’s plenty more to discuss. Here’s all the information we discovered during our careful examination of the footage. Did we miss anything? Add your thoughts in the comments!

“This job, we try to save as many people as we can,” say Captain America as we see a remote, frozen location.

Two guards, facing the wall. They’re probably simultaneously opening this door. What could be so scary that it needs this kind of security?

Oh. Bucky, a.k.a. the Winter Soldier. That makes sense. “Sometimes that doesn’t mean everybody,” Cap finishes, exhibiting guilt for not being able to save Bucky. “But you don’t give up.”

The editing suggests Bucky is behind the door, but why would he go back to this kind of facility after Cap 2? Maybe this is a flashback?

Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) takes Cap, Falcon, and Widow through the destruction the Avengers are at least somewhat responsible for. First is the “Chituari Invasion” from The Avengers. You can see it created $18.8 billion in damages and cost 74 lives.

Next, “The Fall of SHIELD” in Washington DC from The Winter Soldier. This wasn’t quite as bad, with only $2.8 billion in damage and 23 dead.

Finally, the “Ultron Offensive” in Sokovia from Avengers: Age of Ultron. This was the worst yet, totaling $474 billion in damages and 177 dead. “Okay, that’s enough,” says Cap.

“People are afraid,” says Ross as we see the destruction of some kind of conference — a peace conference maybe? The Sokovia Accords? We don’t know. But it seems like T’Challa, a.k.a. Black Panther (played by Chadwick Boseman), is there and is not happy.

“That’s why I’m here,” says Tony Stark over the reveal of an underwater structure of some sort. “We need to be put in check.”

“Whatever form that takes I’m game,” Stark continues. Uhh, it’s a prison. Is this where Tony wants to put his fellow Avengers? Looks like the movie version of the Raft, SHIELD’s underwater prison from the comics.

“I’m sorry, Tony,” says Cap. “If I see a situation pointed south I can’t ignore it.” Is that why Tony is standing in the prison with a black eye? This black eye will come back in a few scenes and be a key tracker to the order of events in the movie. This particular scene may be from near the end.

Cut to Bucky fleeing on a motorcycle, Black Panther in pursuit, Captain America in pursuit of him, and then this:

Gotcha, Bucky. You have to assume Panther blames him for the previously seen destruction.

“I know we’re not perfect, but the safest hands are still our own,” says Cap, as Bucky tries to shoot Tony in the face. Maybe those hands aren’t exactly “safe”.

A few quick edits suggest that Bucky shoots down Tony’s best friend Rhodey, a.k.a. War Machine. Are we seeing a pattern here?

But this background of this shot seems like War Machine’s injury is the result of the massive airport battle we’ll see in a bit. “I was wrong about you,” Cap says to someone. “The whole world was wrong about you.” Is he talking to Tony?

Now the trailer really kicks in. We see Crossbones’ army at the IFID, the Institute for Infectious Disease.

Black Widow is on the ground. We believe this action scene is from the beginning of the film, which becomes the final straw for everyone in regards to large-scale superhero destruction.

“They’re coming for you,” says Tony to Widow from a balcony at Avengers headquarters, suggesting this is from earlier in the film. “I’m not the one the only that needs to watch their back,” she replies. But aren’t they on the same side?

“This doesn’t have to end in a fight, Tony,” says Cap. Tony replies with a knowing, sad look in his black eye and then slaps Cap in the face. More importantly though, what is in that yellow compartment behind them?

“You just started a war,” says Tony, shooting missiles from his shoulders.

A few quick action beats, then a battle between Panther and Bucky. It’s unknown whether it is before or after the motorcycle chase from earlier, but the takeaway here is the helicopter is firing at Panther. Who’s in there? And is this the same helicopter scene as in the other trailer, where Cap grabs and holds onto one?

Black Widow looks at destruction on an airfield. Again, this seems like fallout from the fight we’ll see at the end of the trailer.

Scarlet Witch controlling the Vision, which is heartbreaking when you realise they were married in the comics. Also, isn’t Vision virtually indestructible? Apparently not.

One of the trailer’s true money shots. Hawkeye shoots his arrow and on the tip? Ant-Man, who lands on Iron Man’s armor. That won’t be good for Tony. Also a nice nod to the iconic Ed Hannigan cover to Avengers #223.

A cutaway to show Crossbones beating on Cap a bit from the start of the film.

“Stay down. Final warning,” says Tony. A broken, battered Cap stands up and replies, “I could do this all day.” (A call back to Cap 1, as reader Michael M. reminded us.) It’s likely this is an extension of the three-way fight from the first trailer that included Bucky.

Captain America combo!

Then, finally, Team Cap battles Team Iron Man before the title card. These shots have a few more finished effects than the same shots in the last trailer, plus we get that epic, new final reveal of all 10 heroes in the same frame. This would be a great end to the trailer except...

“All right, I’ve run out of patience,” says Tony. “Underoos!” In comes Spider-Man, played by Tom Holland, in his new suit. “Hey, everyone,” he says, not just to the Avengers, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the world.

The questions here are, if Spider-Man is at the battle at the airport from the previous shot, is he fighting? Is this before the big showdown? Plus where did he come from? Where was he hiding?

We’ll find out on April 29th, when the film is released in UK cinemas.
