New Film Friday–Captain America: Civil War

Ever wondered who would win if vamp Bella Swan fought Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Probably not. But at least a credible number of people have wondered what would happen if Captain America and Iron Man threw down. Not for fun, but if they were for real at war with each other.

Although this face off has already taken place in the comics, the movie release is interesting timed after the release of the DC comic equivalent of Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice (alluding to the formation of the Justice League).

Compare and contrast with DC aside, Captain America: Civil War parallels something significant to us. After a catastrophic event that ends with the Avengers leaving collateral damage, the American Government decides it needs to have all superheros registered and held accountable. Iron Man and Captain America have different beliefs about what the American government ought and ought not supervise.  Alluding to civil war does emphasize how divided our country is, and what can that lead to?

Marvel has always impressed fans with spectacular story lines that remain true to the original comic, and that’s why we’re so excited to see this film!

This movie is rated PG-13.
