Marvel fans are on the edge of their seats. Why? Because on May 6th, Captain America: Civil War hits theaters across the nation. If the trailers are any indication, it’s sure to be a hit just like the recent Marvel films. But will it live up to fans’ expectations?

The third Captain America installment brings back our favorite people. The direction of Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, both of whom directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier, has fans excited to see this film. Chris Evans is continuing his role as the star-spangled protagonist while Robert Downey Jr. suits up as the seeming antagonist. Joining our favorite Avengers, Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), and Don Cheadle (War Machine) are on the screen. And of course, Stan Lee will have a cameo.

In the trailer, there are some brief glimpses of a few new faces. Fans are delighted to see Spiderman (played by Tom Holland) on screen with our favorite superhero team. Matt Bitz, a Marvel fanatic and former Central Cobbler says, “I’m looking forward to seeing Spiderman finally interact with the other Marvel heroes.”  We are excited to see that Chadwick Boseman plays Black Panther, Paul Rudd reprises his role as Ant-Man, Paul Bettany slips back into Vision, and Elizabeth Olsen returns as the Scarlett Witch right next to our Avenger team.

Everyone knows that a friendship breakup is worse than a relationship breakup.

But what has fans on the brink? The tension displayed on screen. Due to some political rifts, the superheroes take sides. The friendship between Steve Rodgers (Captain America) and Tony Stark (Iron Man) is torn, which is sure to tear our hearts as well. Everyone knows that a friendship breakup is worse than a relationship breakup, so Heather Bitz says, “What has me on edge is the breakdown of Cap and Tony’s friendship.”  But another point of contention is the fate of our favorite heroes. Jon Bitz, a Marvel fanatic and another former Central Cobbler, says, “What has me most on edge is whether or not they kill Steve Rodgers.”

Followed by an end credits scene sure to make fans question their entire existence, this movie is going to be a wild ride.
