Screen Junkies has come out with another honest trailer and this time they're taking on Captain America: Civil War. As usual, the trailer doesn't hold back in ripping the logic of the movie to shreds. You can see it below:


Perhaps the most pointed observation of the trailer is that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War are more similar that most people think. The trailer even makes a callback to the Batman v Superman honest trailer by detailing how ridiculously convoluted Baron Zemo's evil plan in scrolling text. It's declared to be an even dumber plan than Lex Luthor's.

The trailer points out the general plot points the movies shared too. Though to be fair to Civil War, it had more fun with itself, containing a lot less monochrome and snarling. And to be fair to Batman v Superman, at least the stuff in the movie put in to set up future movies (Wonder Woman, etc) didn't contradict any hero's main motivation. Seriously, Tony, your whole "think of the children and their safety" argument doesn't exactly hold up when you get a teenager  involved in a dangerous superhero battle. 

What did you think of the trailer's argument? Which movie did you prefer? Talk about it in the comments!
