So last night Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans were on Jimmy Kimmel Live, promoting the final part of the Captain America trilogy, Captain America: Civil War and whilst I am not an American, I have seen clips of this interview and oh boy was it good. There were jokes, laughter, and RDJ & CE admitting they are on-screen and off-screen friends.
RDJ dropped a flaming poster for us:
ITS SO BEAUTIFUL!!!
We had cheeky hints to a potential romance between Iron Man and Captain America:
J.K: “Not that the poster isn’t very very very exciting I mean it looks like you are very intensely in love”
C.E: “I brought the teaser”
J.K: “Is this a sex thing?”
C.E: “That too but that’s later”
Now I’m not stupid, I know this is all said in jest, but following on from these scenes in A:AoU
When Wanda shows Tony a vision, who does he go to? Out of all his dead teammates, who?
Steve ripping blocks of wood apart with his bare hands and Tony stares somewhere no where near his face
And this little comment from Natasha-
“I thought you and Tony were still gazing into each others’ eyes”
Again, it could be Marvel’s way of saying we know about the fanfiction. But its Stony. It has been there since before even this:-
Also, when the guys went to Clint’s farm his wife said; “some of them are going to have to double up”.
Now, think of the traits of Steve.
He’d never let a woman, regardless of who Natasha is, share up unless there was no possible way for her not to.
So that means he was doubling up too right?
Now, Clint and his wife would’ve had a room.
Thor was AWOL
Bruce and Natasha were sharing
The kids were probably in their room.
This means that coupled with Steve’s personality, he and Tony would’ve shared a room/bed. Why didn’t we see it? Maybe cause Marvel were testing the waters on whether or not we’d like to see that kind of side of the two supers? But looking at a lot of the fanfiction that arose after the release of this film, could we be about to have a deeper relationship between the two supers than we ever thought possible? RDJ and CE have likened their relationship to that of a married couple in interviews before.
It’s not so far out to expect something like this as same sex marriage is legal, plus in A:AoU, Pepper wasn’t there. Now yeah she has a company to run but didnt Stark say, “Pepper has company of her own”? And in the comics Pepper ends up with Happy. So maybe due to the events of Iron Man 3 Pepper is no longer in the picture and who better to be with but the hunk that is Captain America.
Steve has stated he no longer wants a family so maybe he’s looking for companionship? Something more of just someone to go home to. I can picture Marvel doing something like that, subtle hints at a relationship but not fully blown.
Not to mention this little moment:
What I’m saying is, as times have moved dramatically forwards in the last year, could we be about to see Marvel’s two iconic Superheros together?
Anyway enough about A:AoU, CIVIL WAR TIME. Another sneaky thing popped up on Jimmy Kimmel. A teaser trailer, then Marvel dumped the FULL FIRST OFFICIAL TRAILER!!!!!
BUT OH MY GOD DID YOU SEE THE CIVIL WAR TRAILER?? LIKE OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD I NEED THE FILM RN!!
If you haven’t then please, watch it now!!
So now that you’ve seen it let’s see what we can take from the first official trailer before the film? Take our predictions or something?
Okay, so let’s go from the first scene.
BUCKY IS BACK (If you’ve been living under a rock and didn’t see Cap 2 then Bucky Barnes, Cap A BBF is ALIVE)
And he looks so freaking hot with stubble ^-^, but there’s a problem. Whilst he has given up his assassin life, not a lot believe him and so inevitably are coming to get him.
Bucky is on the run whilst the events of Age of Ultron (which I’m gonna call the Battle of Sokovia), are catching up to Captain America. Government officials are claiming that they should have laws in place, the Government should have some control of them.
Which if you look at some of the decisions these Supers have to make it does make sense:
Age of Ultron: “Everybody up here versus everybody down there?”
“Ultron cannot see the difference between saving the world and destroying it, where do you think he gets that from?”
The decisions the Supers have to make often have devastating consequences for both civilians and themselves. And just who is on the Governments side?
Not what you’d expect is it.
Now, I believe this is due to an incident not in the trailer, like for instance Crossbones? Maybe Cap and he have a massive fight and something happens to civilians hence why The Accords are seen in the trailer. Now this is basically the MCU equivalent of the Superhuman Registration Act. But it’s handed to Wanda?
Perhaps it’s a plea by the Government to get her on their side, after all she does have that telekinesis, or to put it in Maria Hills words, “She’s weird”
But keen eyes have spotted a certain little someone, okay well two someone’s.
Not much is known about his character but he is standing next to Agent 13 (Sharon Carter), and in the next shot the government looks to be confiscating the gear of the Avengers from their base.
GENERAL ROSS IS BACK
THE GUY FROM THE INCREDIBLE HULK LIKE SRSLY I NEVER EVER THOUGHT HE’D BE BACK
BUT HE IS
He is reportedly back to reprimand them for whatever new international incident sets off the events of Civil War.
The trailer also saw the debut of Black Panther as played by Chadwick Boseman. Reportedly his character is not holding any allegiances with any side. Although he does appear to be chasing down Bucky (with Steve following). For any who don’t know, BP is also known as T’Challa and he is the Black Panther (Leader) of his nation: Wakanda. A place visited in A:AoU and it is home to the strongest metal on Earth- a metal that Cap’s Shield is made of.
We have also seen a snippet of a fight between those on Captain America’s side and Iron Man’s side.
This is the breakdown of teams:
- Steve Rogers / Captain America
- Bucky Barnes / The Winter Soldier
- Clint Barton / Hawkeye
- Sam Wilson / Falcon
- Sharon Carter / Agent 13
- Scott Lang / Ant-Man
- Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch
Team Iron Man/Pro-Registration
- Tony Stark / Iron Man
- James Rhodes / War Machine
- Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow
- Peter Parker / Spider-Man
- T’Challa / Black Panther
Although in the trailer, Spider-Man and Vision were not seen so don’t panic that you’ve missed anything.
But are we set for heartbreak? After all, actor Don Cheadle AKA War Machine, was rumoured to have died in A:AoU and so appearing in Civil War is way beyond his contract. Of course he could have extended it or made another, but with a photo like this:
Could Marvel have revealed a death in the trailer? The smoky area behind Iron Man suggests it occurs after their fight on the plane field.
And with this:
(All other gifs are not mine but I made this one and the one below, I’m super happy ^-^)
Could Bucky be the one who kills War Machine? In a manner similar to what he does to Tony here? Also, in the Gif below, the fact that Tony is fighting Cap and Bucky alone does that further enforce War Machine’s demise?
One of the most devastating lines however can be seen in the following GIF’s
HOW DARE THEY
Also, here are some of my favourite quotes from the trailer:
T.S: “If we cant accept limitations we’re not better than the bad guys”
S.R: ” I just wanna make sure we consider all our options”
I just cannot wait for this film I need it so badly!!!
I do however feel as though I am on Captain America’s side. Super’s should be free- they protect us at great cost to their own safety and lives. They were even willing to stay on part of Sokovia whilst it was going to be destroyed!!!
But, regardless of whoever comes out on top (but personally I believe they will come to an agreement) we can be sure that both Steve Rogers and Tony Stark will survive as they are in Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 & 2.
