Super Bowl trailers: Captain America Civil War sets the stage

Marvel was one of the first studios to offer a Super Bowl trailer this year, the popular studio released a new trailer for “Captain America: Civil War”.

After a short teaser-trailer released earlier this year, this marks the first full-length feature trailer for the summer blockbuster. “Captain America: Civil War” is scheduled to hit theaters in May 2016.

Returning to the franchise will be Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr., In the film Captain America and Iron Man will stand on opposite sides of the battlefield. In the film each of the super-heroes take different sides on a bill that would allow government regulation of super-heroes in the Marvel Universe. This causes the “Civil War” storyline to kickoff, pitting Avengers against each other as they fight for what they believe in.

After the events of the last movie, “Captain America: Civil War” will have Steve Rogers (Captain America) leading a new squad of Avengers to fight the good fight against evil. The government regulation comes after the Avengers cause more devastation while protecting the planet, with some in Washington and around the world questioning the safety of the self-regulated band of heroes.

On one-side is Captain America, leading the group that opposes the government regulations. Rogers fears that identifying all super heroes will not only put them at risk, but their family and loved ones as well. On the other side of the debate is Iron Man, who does not keep his identity a secret and feels that other super heroes and gifted humans should do the same.

Joining Chris Evans and Robert Downy JR. in the film are Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Frank Grillo and Daniel Brühl.
