Captain America: Civil War is in our midst. Following Captain America on a mission to challenge the government together with his own Avengers faction, the third Captain America film aims to dig deeper into the relationships of the superheroes, most especially the titular hero Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.).
In preparation of the highly anticipated film, MCU Exchangehas put together a supercut that will refresh audiences on the events that led to the great Avengers war. It combines several important clips and soundbites from different MCU movies, as well as relevant references from Marvel series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Jessica Jones.

The way the video sequenced the events was brilliantly-done. Many are describing it as even better than the Captain America: Civil War trailers released by Marvel recently. Not only does it remind us of the events that ultimately led to the great battle between Rogers and Stark, but it shows us of Marvel’s consistency in developing their characters.
As per Screen Rant, the Civil War comics ended with a complete rearrangement of the Marvel Universe. Captain America was killed, the X-Men detached any involvement from the two Avengers factions, the Fantastic Four broke up, The Punisher re-appeared, Spider-Man publicized his identity. This led to Aunt May Parker getting shot and the web slinger to getting a deal from Satan to take back his mistakes which dissolved his marriage to Mary Jane.
Since Marvel has been plotting a different storyline for The Avengers in Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1, it’s exciting what influence the Civil War will have in the lives of the superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Needless to say, it’s a great year for superhero movies. If Deadpool proves anything, it’s that the general public is clamoring for a different handle on comic book movies. I’m hoping Civil War will take that risk. Things are actually looking up, what with Doctor Strange having a supernatural theme.
Captain America: Civil War is slated for release on May 6. Doctor Strange will follow on November 4. Meanwhile, The Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 will be released on May 4, 2018 and The Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 on May 3, 2019.
