A new viral video examines the impact of The Avengers on society in the build up to Captain America: Civil War.
With April 28th fast approaching, Marvel Entertainment has stepped its marketing campaign for Captain America: Civil War into full gear, with new teases for the film being released in a constant stream. Civil War marks the studio’s largest film to date, with many previously established characters making an appearance including Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), War Machine (Don Cheadle) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie). Robert Downey Jr‘s Iron Man will be a key player in the movie of course, but it seems The Captain (Chris Evans) himself may be taking the lead from this point on, which would make a lot of sense given some of the stirrings we’ve heard in recent years that Downey would be taking a hiatus at some point.
Nevertheless, the impact of each member of The Avengers team on the MCU is questioned in this new segment featured on the fictional news program WHIH News Front, where reporter Christine Everhart (Leslie Bibb) discusses the implications of the team’s acts over the last eight years, since the first Iron Man film (2008).
The outcome of Civil War, i.e. which ever team prevails, will dictate the future of The Avengers’ activity in the World, and, given that Marvel seems to be pushing The Cap more and more into the spotlight, how Steve Rogers will be able to truly fit in in the 21st Century.
