It’s time to get excited for the return of Captain America and Iron Man. As the dust settles here’s our top 5 questions coming out of Captain America Civil War.
Let’s get the review straight out of the way, Captain America: Civil War is excellent. Is it the best Marvel cinematic movie so far? It is hard to tell right now but one thing is clear, it is going to make series bank at the box office.
Once the credits rolled there were a couple of big questions and unresolved plot points that many fans are sure to have. Don’t worry because you’re not alone which is why we have put together our top 5 questions raised by Captain America: Civil War. We’ll try our best to avoid spoilers wherever we can.
The major question we have coming out of the movie is, what happens now? If you’ve been following Marvels Agents of Shield you know that they are running with a massive Inhuman storyline so they are slightly preoccupied right now.
So not only do we have a fractured Avengers team as well as a government that no longer trust Tony or Steve but now there is no Shield to anticipate future treats to the planet.
Although not everything is lost. Captain America introduced a number of players that have proved they will be useful come the Infinity war. But with the team on the run, how can they come back together to face the impending threat from Thanos.
It is no secret Spider-Man is in the Movie and it’s safe to say that Tom Holland knocks it out of the park. We’re introduced to a Peter Parker that is new to the superhero game but in his first major battle he more than held his own. The TV spots have even shown him taking on both Bucky and Falcon on his own.
During his short time on-screen he demonstrates that he is immensely powerful. But the question is, how powerful will he become between the end of this movie and the big two parter Avengers movie. Also, when will we see him again?
It is clear that, slight spoilers if you haven’t seen the movie yet, Tony and Steve’s relationship is not in a good position at the end of Captain America: Civil War. Up until a certain point in the movie both heroes were on the same page but once Zemo’s plan come to fruition we are left with a fractured friendship.
They didn’t see eye to eye at times in either Avengers movie but this time around their fun back and forth led to a physical confrontation that fans have wanted to see for a long time. The Russo brothers and Kevin Feige’s team made sure that we understood both characters motivations and it was implied, at the end of Captain America: Civil War, that both seemed to have a large amount of regret about what went down in the movie.
Both men are pragmatist and understand the bigger picture meaning there is every reason to believe that they will get on the same page once again yet the question remains, what will bring them back together?
The major fall-out from Captain America Civil War is that the team are split right down the middle. Slight spoilers for the end of the movie but #teamcap is currently on the run. The actions of #teamcap and #teamironman, although coming from a logical place, has caused one team to become fugitives while seeds of doubt were sowed within the ranks of the other team. But what, or who, will bring the band back together?
It is safe to say that Captain America and his team of fugitive Avengers wouldn’t be standing idly by when some ne’er-do-well starts causing trouble. Logic would suggest that it will be something to do with Thanos and his search for the infinity stones but what else could do it?
We all know that Thanos is coming to collect the remaining infinity stones but we don’t know when. Storytelling logic would suggest that he will arrive during the first Infinity War movie, will get his hands (or glove) on the stones and part two will deal with the fall out. But with the Avengers dispersed, and broken apart by the actions of Tony and Steve during Captain America: Civil War, who can realistically stand in the way of the mad titan?
The only things we know so far is that all films in Marvel’s phase three plans are leading up to the Infinity War movies directed by the Russo brothers. We can also expect the return of the current Avengers team as well as some of the newer characters being introduced namely Spider-Man, Doctor Strange and Captain Marvel. It has also been confirmed that Chris Pratt’s Star Lord will be part of the movie.
The Russo brothers have proven adept at helming movies that feature Marvels most important characters so it will be exciting to see what happens next. One thing that is for certain is that with all these elements combining it appears that everything is going to come together nicely for whatever the Infinity War movies are called.
