Recently some concept art for Captain America: Civil War leaked and we all know what that means . . . speculation time!
The images show the break down to the opposing teams; team Cap, with Winter Soldier (they obviously reversed the brainwashing), Hawkeye, and Ant-Man, Falcon. this team will also be introducing fans to Sharon Carter, and what looks to be a mechanical version of Redwing.
Team Stark appears to consist of Black Widow, War Machine (Duh!), Vision, and the much anticipated, of Black Panther.
If these images are to be believed and this is actually how the teams break down then we can start to draw some conclusions and to form a ton of opinions about the movie.
- Baby Hawkeye back on the farm will be without his daddy while daddy fights Auntie Natasha.
- The Bucky being brainwashed plotline will be handled quickly enough for him to team up with his old friend.
- Whatever Tony’s stance is on the problem it is the right one because he got Vision on his side, and he is too awesome to be on the wrong team.
- Finally seeing Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be sweet.
- There will be some awkward tension between Steve and Sharon Carter.
- Where are Scarlet Witch, Wasp, Hulk, and Thor? Thor may be off dealing with Ragnarok and Banner is probably just over it, but that doesn’t explain the absence of two of the most recently introduced female heroes to the MCU.
- Why are the costumes so boring? Can they not do more for Hawkeye than change the color of his outfit?
- Will War Machine make more bad jokes? (I can answer this one right now and the answer is yes).
- If it took this long to finally get Spider-Man into the MCU because he plays such a large role in the original Civil War storyline, why is he not featured in this concept art?
- Furthermore what will be his role in the movie given that he is being played by a teenager in a world of adults?
- How will this schism of the MCU’s core team coupled with the dissolution of SHIELD effect the rest of the universe?
- When will we see SWORD? Granted that is not a question that I thought of looking at this concept art but this girl that wants to see Agent Brand on the big screen in all of her green glory.
