New Captain America: Civil War spoilers, related to costumes and some key scenes, have surfaced online and it looks like The Avengers (old and new) are all set with upgraded gear, to face off each other in the upcoming Iron Man vs Captain America epic.
Check out the updates below. (via JoBlo)
It seems like Black Panther's storyline in the film will move towards setting the stage for his standalone film which will follow soon after Civil War. But apart from having his own agenda, Black Panther will reportedly side with Tony Stark/ Iron Man in the beginning.
Panther's costume is "shrouded in Vibranium (the same material that Cap's shield is made from)", and during a showdown with Captain America, we'll see him "scratching Cap's shield easily and his prowess will prove to be a viable threat." We can also expect to see a "sleek Panther jet of some type," which apparently looks very "Stark-like."
Fans of Hawkeye (increased in number post Avengers 2), will also be pleased as the character's costume will be closer to the comic book version - "adding more purple and a full right sleeve to his costume."
Paul Rudd's Ant-Man will have a much "bigger" costume upgrade. We'll see a more "modern/techno stylish costume." Fans can also expect to see Ant-Man take on his Giant Man form (about 15-20 feet height) and square off against Iron Man and his team. In what might turn out to be a very, very cool scene, we'll see Ant-Man "standing on one of Hawkeye's arrows, ready to be launched."
Don Cheadle's War Machine (who will most probably side with Iron Man) will be back in action for Civil War and it looks like his suit will be getting some major upgrades as well. "He'll be looking more tank-style in this film and will have a new dual weapon that acts as a shoulder cannon/gun that can also be detached and used as a kind of warhammer/baton."
Filming for Captain America: Civil War is currently underway. While there have been no indications as to when fans can get a glimpse of the film in the form of a teaser trailer, we can only hope that Marvel's upcoming film Ant-Man (which releases on 17 July) will have a teaser of the film attached to it.
Captain America: Civil War hits theatres on 6 May 2016.
