On May 6th, Captain America: Civil War hits theaters! Expectations have been set pretty high and the reviews so far have all been mostly positive. Here are some things we, and many others, are hoping to see in the film.
#1 - Surprise Cameos
There's certainly no shortage of great characters at Marvel's fingertips that they can include in this new film, and though the movie will introduce a large number of returning and new Marvel characters, what I'm hoping to see most is a supriseamount of characters that we haven't been expecting to see. Sure we know that Iron Man, Black Panther and War Machine are in this, but be sure to throw in a few surprises in there as well.
#2 - The Next Defining Chapter of the Marvel Universe
The last Captain America movie The Winter Soldier was not only a great movie, but it sent shockwaves through the Marvel Cinematic Universe that played an impact on all of the movies that followed, and even beyond into the television universe. I'm hoping that Civil War will carry that same kind of weight and make it an integral part of the Marvel universe.
#3 - It's All Politics
Of course, Civil War pits Tony Stark vs. Steve Rogers, but I'm hoping this movie doesn't go full Batman v Superman and remembers that at the end of the day, both these heroes are still friends and teammates, despite their political views. At the end of the game, it's my hope these differences could be set aside before the team dons the suit for Avengers: Infinity War.
#4 - The Ending
Anyone who has any familiarity with the original Civil War comic book will know about the memorable ending that's one of the biggest shocking moments in Marvel comic history. The event plays out due to the events that follow Civil War, and I'm wondering if the cinematic universe will follow in the same steps as the comic universe.
