It’s hard not to think that Marvel’s latest promo for Captain America: Civil War was inspired by the fan-made “Road to Civil War” super-cut from a couple of weeks ago. Like that video, the official “The Past Is Prelude” teaser takes us through the evolution of Tony Stark and Steve Rogers, from their first solo films all the way through Avengers: Age of Ultron and into Civil War. It’s much shorter than that fan-made super-cut, but it still packs an emotional punch.

You’ve seen the Captain America: Civil War trailer. You’ve seen the Captain America: Civil War trailer GIFs. Now see the Captain America: Civil War trailer again! But slightly differently this time!
Superhero films are really into the whole “choose a side” thing this year. Batman and Superman, the X-Men and Apocalypse (okay, that’s easy — Oscar Isaac and Michael Fassbender’s side, obviously), and the most brutal super-battle of them all: Iron Man and Captain America. Civil War is coming, and while the trailers have given us plenty to consider in the fight between Tony Stark and Steve Rogers, Marvel’s latest batch of images gives us more to contemplate.
There were a lot of Captain America: Civil War fans who were waiting for another full trailer after the Super Bowl 50 commercial. That trailer has yet to arrive, but Empire Magazine has just debuted the cover for their Captain America: Civil War...
Not to be confused with Disney’s ever-growing slate of live-action remakes which includes a Pinocchio project, Warner Bros.’ has had a Pinocchio movie of their own in development for years, with Robert Downey Jr. attached to play the role of puppet creator Gepetto. After repeatedly failing to secure a director, WB’s Pinocchio may have finally found its maker in Ron Howard, who is reportedly coming aboard to direct the long-gestating live-action take on the classic fairy tale.
We all remember Batkid, aka Miles Scott, the young boy suffering from cancer who got to fulfill his dream of being Batman for a day thanks to the help of the city of San Francisco and the Make-A-Wish foundation. The charitable organization has helped to make another ailing kid's superhero dreams come true, transforming nine-year-old Iron Man fan Domenic Pace into Iron Boy — and he's even been endorsed by Robert Downey Jr. himself.
Whose side will you be on when Captain America: Civil War hits theaters next May? That’s the big question in this brief behind-the-scenes video from the Disney Channel — will you side with Tony Stark and the government, or go rogue with Captain America? From what we’ve seen in the trailers, there won’t be any clear winner in this battle, but if we had to choose a side, we’d probably stick with Cap.
Thanks to the source material, trailers and cast and director interviews, we already know what causes the divide between the Avengers in Captain America: Civil War. Marvel has released a new official synopsis that’s a bit more informative than the previous description, teasing Tony Stark’s “surprising decision,” though it seems like Steve Rogers is the one who’s subverting our expectations.
“Do you really wanna punch your way out of this?” That’s what Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow asks Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers as a civil disagreement between Cap and Iron Man develops into all out war in the new international trailer for Captain America: Civil War. It’s a little shorter and more streamlined than the first official domestic trailer, but that doesn’t make it any less effective — in fact, this one might be better than the first.
And in other Marvel news… In addition to that Doctor Strange featurette, another bonus video from the studio’s deluxe Phase 2 box set has arrived online, this time focusing on that other highly-anticipated Phase 3 film — Captain America: Civil War. The new featurette goes inside the “rift” between Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and Chris Evans’ Captain America, which causes a divide between their fellow Avengers and sparks a very personal battle between friends.
