First Captain America: Civil War trailer hits
The thing I liked the most about Winter Soldier was how it managed to interweave a real issue–privacy and the extent of government power–amongst all the explosions, stunts, and super heroics. Given that Civil War is from the same director team of Anthony and Joe Russo, with a script from the same writers, Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, it’s not surprising that it seems like it will follow much the same pattern. If anything, it seems like a more direct continuation of that thread than Age of Ultron, which I think we can mostly be thankful for.
Marvel, unsurprisingly, continues to expand its roster with this movie, which marks the first appearance of Black Panther/T’Challa, played by Chadwick Boseman. I’ve been reading some of the Christopher Priest run of Black Panther, which is interesting (if a little dated), and I look forward to seeing what Ta-Nehisi Coates does with the character when he takes over next year.
