In Theaters Friday- Marvel's CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR #Review

The wait is almost over!  Marvel's CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR hits theaters this Friday! 

Here's Another Peek at the Trailer....

Production Notes: 

From Marvel Studios comes the highly anticipated "Captain America: Civil War," the third film in the Captain America franchise and the first film in Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Based on the beloved Marvel comic book series, first published in 1941, Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “The Avengers”) as the iconic Super Hero character Steve Rogers/Captain America; Robert Downey Jr. (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Iron Man 3”) as Tony Stark/Iron Man; Scarlett Johansson (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow; Sebastian Stan (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Black Swan”) as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier; Anthony Mackie (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “The Hurt Locker”) as Sam Wilson/Falcon; Don Cheadle (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “House of Lies”) as Colonel James Rhodes/War Machine; Jeremy Renner (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation”) as Clint Barton/Hawkeye; Chadwick Boseman (“42,” “Get on Up”) as T’Challa/Black Panther; Paul Bettany (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Iron Man 3”) as Vision; and Elizabeth Olsen (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Godzilla”) as Wanda Maximoff/ Scarlet Witch.

The film also stars Paul Rudd (“Ant-Man,” “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues”) as Scott Lang/Ant-Man; Emily VanCamp (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Revenge”) as Sharon Carter; Marisa Tomei (“My Cousin Vinny,” “Love the Coopers”) as May Parker; Tom Holland (“In the Heart of the Sea,” “The Impossible”) as Spider-Man; Frank Grillo (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones; and Martin Freeman (“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” “The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies”) as Everett Ross; with William Hurt (“A History of  Violence,” Marvel’s “The Incredible Hulk”) as Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross and Daniel Brühl (“Inglourious Basterds,” “Bourne Ultimatum”) as Zemo.

Marvel Studios’ “Captain America: Civil War” is directed by Emmy® Award-winning directors Anthony and Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. Kevin Feige is producing the film with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.

Directors Anthony and Joe Russo’s creative team also includes director of photography Trent Opaloch (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Elysium”); production designer Owen Paterson (“Godzilla,” “Matrix”); editors Jeffrey Ford, A.C.E. (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) and Matthew Schmidt (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Iron Man 3”); three-time, Oscar®-nominated costume designer Judianna Makovsky (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”); visual effects supervisor Jen Underdahl (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “The Avengers”); and six-time Oscar® nominee, special effects supervisor Dan Sudick (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “The Avengers”).

What the Wigglesworths Thought: 

These Two Were So Excited!

We were so fortunate for the opportunity to attend an advanced IMAX 3D screening of Marvel's CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR last night. 
Matt and Drew are pretty big Marvel fans (I love that they bond over things like this) and they have been waiting a while for this film to be released. After seeing the trailer (above) a short time ago, I have to admit, I was also looking forward to seeing the movie.

We all left the house as part of #TeamCap. I couldn't understand why Iron Man (of all people) would be for the government overseeing the Avengers, but once the movie started, I got it. Watching the movie, I was mostly rooting for Captain America, but a part of me was also rooting for Iron Man! 

Got a #TeamCap Button To Show Our Loyalty

Drew is Team Captain America All Day Every Day! 

We all really enjoyed that Ant-Man (my favorite) and Spider-Man made appearances in this movie. Their scenes were some of my favorites and the actor playing Spider-Man (Tom Holland) might just be my new favorite version of the character! 

One character that I didn't expect to have too much of an opinion on, was T'Challa/Black Panther. I actually really liked him and I'm hoping to learn more about him, since I knew nothing before the movie. I'm hoping he'll end up in another Avengers movie and soon! 

When we got home, we saw a commercial for this movie where someone used the word "emotional" (or something similar). I mentioned to Matt that (because someone else used the word emotional) I didn't feel so bad for getting a little teary at some parts of the film, and he looked at me like I had two heads! To be clear, I didn't cry, but there were scenes that just tugged at my heart strings and got me a little more invested than I usually get. 

Our suggestion is that you go and see this movie! We enjoyed it, and judging by their reactions, so did everyone else in the theater. Don't forget to stay for the TWO extra scenes during the credits (a few of our fellow theaters goers must have forgotten, and left). After watching, come back and tell us what your favorite part of the movie was by leaving a comment below!
