The latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has definitely set the bar high for superhero comics adaptations in the movies. Marvel’s captain America Civil War has taken the entertainment world by storm with its action-packed scenes, gripping storyline and lovable characters.
The movie revolves around a conflict between two of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes, Captain America and Iron Man. After a massive incident of destruction in Lagos, Nigeria, the world’s governments become frustrated with the Avengers’ methods and call for them to be put in check by a governing body. Tony Stark (Iron Man) backs this idea but Captain America is reluctant to give in to these demands. When two opposing sides of the Avengers; Team Iron Man (including Black Panther and Vision) and Team Captain America (with Falcon and Winter Soldier) arise, the ensuing faceoff makes for an iconic series of fight scenes.
The battle of these two superheroes is the major element of the movie: both sides of the conflict use their wit, guile, and superpower to an edge. Seeing them come to terms with their differences as well as the motivations behind it will surely give audiences an emotional roller coaster of experiences. Audiences will immerse themselves in the battle of morality played out by the clash between Team Iron Man and Team Captain America.
Furthermore, this cinematic experience is enriched by the presence of the Black Panther. Not only does the King of Wakanda bring a unique set of moral values and wise decisions but also gives the audience an insight into another vision of how heroes and villains can co-exist in the same world. The movie does a great job of establishing Black Panther as an important character without overshadowing the conflict between the two teams.
All-in-all, Captain America Civil War is an excellent movie that raises several important themes revolving around power and dissent. Marvel succeeds in presenting a complex, visually-arresting and entertaining experience about two beloved superheroes of the MCU and we can’t wait for another epic battle between them in the future.
