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 Singapore theatres on April 28, 2016.

Probably one of the best films from the MCU after Marvel’s Avengers.

There’s a certain kind of kick you get from enjoying superhero movies - perhaps it’s the ass-kicking superheroes, or the sense of triumph when your favourite Avenger beats the villain in their very elaborated ways. In any case, Marvel’s latest addition to the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) is one hell of a satisfying continuation. 

Many superhero films tackle the question of whether having a guardian with extraordinary abilities for the world is a bane or boon; often accepting the latter in the end. While Captain America: Civil War also trends along the line of this overused narrative, the Russo brothers, together with screenplay writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, give a different and fresh approach to the film - an internal dispute. 

The Avengers are known to protect the world from harm, but often that comes with mortal sacrifices, massive destruction to buildings, and the aftermath that they don’t exactly help to ‘clean up after themselves’. Now faced with a motion to have the Avengers governed by the UN, the team is split between two camps: Iron Man’s Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr), War Machine’s James Rhodes (Don Cheadle), Vision (Paul Bettany), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Spiderman (Tom Holland) are all for it; while Captain America’s Steve Rogers, Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Scarlett Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) are against it. 

The split sparked off from Winter Soldier’s (Sebastian Stan) assassination of King T'Chaka of Wakanda, father of T’Challa (Black Panther). Though controlled and brainwashed by Hydra, Black Panther holds Bucky responsible for his father’s death, and the countless assassinations around the world. Naturally, the government seeks the help of the Avengers to bring him to justice. Captain America refuses to believe the surface of the situation and fight against the government and his fellow superhero comrades. 

The famous ‘airport scene’ is probably one of the best battles we’ve seen in any superhero films. With both teams lined up in front of each other, fixing their gaze on their enemy, all it takes is a pin drop to start the epic fight. With that, you get to see each superhero displaying their unique skills -  helping one another, but at the same time, using it against their opponents. There isn’t one that emerges victorious, obviously, but a justifiable ‘twist’ that determines the ‘winner’ of that battle. 

From the success of the box office, we’ve seen how Deadpool’s M18 humour worked with majority of its audiences, while Marvel keeps its PG rating, they sure upped their game with more humorous punchlines, superhero jokes and pretty awesome one-liners - thanks to Ant-Man and Spider-Man. Most of the funnier moments are with Spider-Man where Tom Holland delivers it with his unique teenage quirk, away from what Garfield and Maguire did with their own versions. 

Ultimately, you can tell, very obviously that Marvel is using this to introduce and push up its subsequent slate of standalone superhero films like Black Panther (2018) and ‘Spiderman: Homecoming’ (2017). These two characters in particular were given a pretty sizeable amount of screen time to develop and engage its audience, after all it is the first time we are seeing these new characters in the MCU. It is still sad that characters like Black Widow and even Scarlet Witch do not get their own standalone film, considering the amount of materials and backstories that can be explored further. 

Maybe we aren’t facing the superhero fatigue after all, with Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, it combines all the cinematic showdown moviegoers are looking for, yet a decent and intriguing narrative that builds a solid significance to Mavel’s future. If this is a prelude to Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, we can’t wait for that to happen.
