We are approaching May 6, 2016….
which is the release date for Captain America Civil War. Okay so I’m going to be honest right from the get-go. I’m not totally pumped for this movie. I don’t know what it is really, but none of the trailers made my mouth drop or anything. Maybe it’s because I’ve been so excited for Deadpool (review coming soon) and Suicide Squad, that my mind is just like, “Yeah, that’s enough excitement for one year.” That doesn’t mean I’m not going to see the movie. Of course I’m gonna see this movie. It’s CIVIL WAR. Maybe I’m just not pumped for it because it’s another marvel movie that takes place in the Avengers
universe, which we’ve had so many movies of already. That’s just my opinion however, so don’t kill me over it. With that said, I’ve thought of a few things that I would like to see in this movie that would make me really excited for the next Avengers movie. So without further adieu…… (by the way this list is not numbered in any specific order).
The Death of an Avenger
Okay I know that a lot of people aren’t going to like this one because let’s be honest, who wants to see an Avenger die? When you look at Civil War, however, this movie is claiming to be the movie that will have a large effect on the rest of the MCU movies. Honestly, if this movie just features a few battles between the sides, but there are not really any lasting consequences, I’m going to be a little upset. I think it’s time that we see one of our heroes fall. I don’t have a preference for which one, because I actually like all of them. They’re all a great group of characters. That’s just going to make it worse (yes i will be upset even if I’m petitioning for the death of an Avenger) to see any of them die. Basically, what I’m saying, is that it’s time to get real.
So I’m sure that most of us have heard about the addition of Spider-Man in this movie, but for those of you who might not have heard about it, Spider-Man is in this movie. Tom Holland was cast in the shoes of a young teenage Peter Parker (big surprise right?). From what I’ve gathered through social media, the Peter Parker we see in this movie will be spending most of his time out of his Spider-Man this time around. In the movie, Parker is recruited by Tony Stark as his protege. The movie will spend more time focusing on Peter Parker as a teenager and not as a superhero. Now I’m all down for some teenage Parker, but it sounds like we’ll hardly see any Spider-Man at all, which I am not down with. I’d like to see Parker suit up more than they’re letting on in this movie. If they don’t do that, then maybe in the future. Of course it’s also said that the details of the deal struck by Sony and Marvel aren’t totally fleshed out yet so there is that.
Okay so this one kind of goes hand in hand with my commentary on the death of an Avenger. What I mean by lasting consequences, is that I don’t want this huge battle between the Avengers to happen and then a resolve is reached at the end of 2 hours. Then by the next Avengers movie, everything is fine. I really want this movie to leave a mark on every person involved in this war. Whenever I thought about Marvel making a civil war movie, (just speculation long before they even announced this movie) I thought it could make an epic trilogy of it’s own. I had never expected it to just be one movie.
I can’t really tell you guys why I’m not super excited for this movie, but I would love to see these things in this movie. That’s just my opinion though. What would you like to see in the next Captain America movie? Leave a comment and let me know! By the way I will be releasing my review for Deadpool sometime this weekend. I have been waiting for my friend to turn 17 so we can go see it together and that’s why it’s taking so long. Take care guys and have a great week!
