Captain America Civil War Trailer Released

Brace yourselves, Avengers fans -- the first trailer for the new Captain America movie has landed, and it's about to get CRAZY in here.

It's been a minute since the last 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' came out, so the first look at 'Captain America: Civil War' is a look into the future of the Avengers initiative, the group having fractured and splintered at the end of the last epic film. The movie's mouthwatering synopsis: "An incident leads to the Avengers developing a schism over how to deal with situations, which escalates into an open fight between allies Iron Man and Captain America."

Repeat: "An open fight between allies Iron Man and Captain America."

The leaders of the Avengers come to blows for the first time in the trailer, with the Cap joined by Bucky Barnes, the villain Winter Soldier from the last Captain America movie.

The movie centres on the Civil War storyline from the Marvel comics, where the Avengers split over a proposed system to register, track and control superheroes; the Captain against the laws, seemingly titled the Sokovia Accord in the movie, and Iron Man supporting them.

"You've operated with unlimited power and no supervision. That's something the world can no longer tolerate," a shadowy government guy tells Captain America.

Iron Man chimes in with "if we can't accept limitations, we're no better than the bad guys."

Marvel also gave a look at a new poster upon the trailer's release, of Captain America and Iron Man gazing lovingly into each other's eyes (maybe not):

Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr return for the film, but there's no sign of Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) or Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) in the trailer.

'Civil War' is released in May 2016. Prepare for six more months of teasing, trailers and marketing before then.
