During last night’s MTV Movie Awards, Disney and Marvel Studios continued their elaborate marketing campaign for the upcoming Captain America: Civil War by debuting over a minute of new footage from the film. The footage follows the release of the film’s second trailer last month, which debuted audiences first look at Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man.
Appropriately introduced by Captain America actor Chris Evans, the new clip eschews the super-heroic conflict that will drive the story, instead focusing on Cap, along with Anthony Mackie’s Falcon and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlett Witch breaching a building that’s seemingly being held hostage by Frank Grillo’s Brock Rumlow (aka Crossbones) along with a group of armed soldiers. The three eliminate the soldiers using their various skills, including some nifty double-team attacks from Scarlett Witch and The Falcon. Of note, the former’s powers and fighting style are more reminiscent of her comic book incarnation than her initial cinematic portrayal in last year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Following the new footage, there was a 23-second super cut of previously released material. A majority of the cut deals with the escalating animosity between Captain America and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man that will serve as the key conflict within the film, as well as briefly spotlighting Black Panther overpowering Cap.
Captain America: Civil War, the third standalone Captain America film, is the 13th entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and kicks off the franchise’s Third Phase. Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Civil War is scheduled to be released on May 6 and stars the aforementioned Evans, Downey Jr., Holland, Mackie, Olsen and Grillo, in addition to Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany Paul Rudd, Emily Van Camp, William Hurt, Daniel Bruhl, Gwyneth Paltrow and Martin Freeman.
