New Captain America: Civil War Promo: The Past is Prelude

Disney/Marvel has released a new spot for Captain America: Civil War that showcases the emotional core of the titular fisticuffs. Titled “The Past is Prelude”, this new spot features footage from the first Captain America and Iron Man films, serving to highlight the philosophical differences between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark that may have made a confrontation inevitable. There are also bits of footage from Civil War towards the end, and this spot does a great job of showcasing something Marvel does well: serialized storytelling. Each Marvel film technically stands alone, but when taken as part of a whole is when the story really pays off.

Captain America: Civil War stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Anthony Mackie, Scarlett Johansson, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Rudd, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Elisabeth Olsen, and Martin Freeman. The film opens in theaters on May 6th. Salt Lake Comic Con and Megaplex Theatres are hosting a private screening of Captain America: Civil War on May 5, 2016 at 7PM at Megaplex Theatres at The Gateway. Tickets go on sale 4/13/2016 at Noon MST, click here for more information!
