‘Captain America: Civil War’ Character Posters Shortchanges Team Iron Man One Hero

Yesterday, we posted the first set of character posters for Captain America: Civil War. These posters showed us that Captain America (Chris Evans), Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) are on Team Cap.
Now Disney has released their opposition. A new set of character posters reveal who is on Team Iron Man, along with information on the runtime for the film. Check it all out below.
As you will be able to see below, Team Iron Man is led by none other than the shellhead himself, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), and he will be joined by Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson), Vision (Paul Bettany), and War Machine (Don Cheadle).
As you can see, these posters are facing the opposite direction of the Team Cap posters. But that leaves Team Iron Man one man short against Captain America’s crew. So who could fill that last spot? Well seeing as Hulk and Thor are probably off doing their own thing, the most likely answer is Spider-Man. Considering the Webslinger is set to make his MCU debut in this film, it’s only fair to believe that he would have a major role in the film. But, all of that is just speculation.
As for the runtime, AMC Theaters has posted that the runtime for Captain America: Civil War stands at 2 hours and 27 minutes. That would make it the longest Marvel Studios film to date. With such a long run time, it should be interesting to see if it will hurt or benefit the narrative as a whole. After all, there are about 12 characters that are going to do battle with each other. But we saw the fatigue that some fans felt with Avengers: Age of Ultron trying to balance out screentime amongst the cast.
Emily VanCamp, Frank Grillo, Martin Freeman with William Hurt and Daniel BrÃ¼hl also star. Captain America: Civil War is set to hit theaters on May 6, 2016.
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. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016.
