Marvel “Civil War” Promo Shows “Past Is Prelude”

In the lead up to “Captain America: Civil War” which opens in just a few weeks, Marvel Studios has released a new official promo which reflects on how the Marvel Cinematic Universe got to the position it is in. Using footage from previous Marvel films, it highlights what precipitates this fracturing of friendships and ideological divide that forms the crux of the film.

The longest Marvel movie to date at 147 minutes, it certainly seems to be pursuing a more morally grey area than its source material comic – one more about civil liberties vs. security. It opens late April around most of the world and on May 6th in the United States.
