Captain America The Winter Solider

POLL Results: Marvel’s Civil War – Killing Time’s Community Official Side!!!

Captain America: Civil War is IN THEATERS AT THIS VERY MOMENT!!!  I’m quickly dashing on to the Internet to post this, ducking spoilery spoilers before my screening tonight (no, don’t thank me, this is my calling).  One month ago, Killing Time asked its readers to choose a side  in Marvel’s great schism.  After frenzied voting…it was never really in doubt.  We bleed red, white, and blue with CAPTAIN AMERICA!!!

Cap was in the lead handily over Team Stark for the entire month.  Iron Man experienced a bit of a surge last week, but in the end it was all Cap 61% to 39%.  Here’s the plan for Civil War coverage: I will, upon my gallant return from the War, publish a spoiler-free review.  I will attempt to be as coherent as possible whilst excluding any plot details that might ruin your Marvel moments.  Next week, we’ll have a spoiler-rich discussion similar to the one I did for Episode VII (click here if you missed it).  I will clearly label the spoiler bomb when I drop it.  We are nothing here, if not careful with narrative explosives.  Enjoy Marvel Weekend ’16, welcome Spidey and Black Panther to the MCU, and we’ll all meet back to discuss it when the smoke clears.

Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

The film is set to feature the return of Chris Evans as Steve Rogers / Captain America, this time joined in his “solo” film by fellow Avengers Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark / Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow, Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson / Falcon, Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton / Hawkeye and Don Cheadle as Jim Rhodes/War Machine.

Sebastian Stan will also be back as Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier alongside Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa / Black Panther, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter / Agent 13, Daniel Brühl as Baron Helmut Zemo, Frank Grillo as Brock Rumlow / Crossbones, William Hurt as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, and Paul Rudd as Scott Lang / Ant-Man.

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, Captain America: Civil War will debut in theaters on May 6, 2016. The film has a running time of 2 hours and 27 minutes, making it the longest Marvel movie to date.

  1. Dave, I’m seeing this tonight, but I have to say that Disney’s choice for Young Han is throwing a pall over my day. On the one hand, I loved the kid in Hail Caesar, and obviously none of us have access to his screen tests. And there are times that I love casting that throws me. But there’s Keaton-Batman unexpected casting that I can get behind immediately, and then there’s Cage-Superman unexpected casting that makes me happy a film never got off the ground. I’m just not seeing this guy taking over for a legendary actor, so that he can play a legendary character.

    As for Cap, the right side won.

    I honestly doubt this movie will be better than TDK. I don’t think it will top BB or DKR, either. The entire Nolan trilogy is going to remain unchallenged for a long time to come. But from everything I’m seeing, Civil War has a chance to be the fourth runner up. We shall see.
