Watch: Ex-Bffs Go To Battle In Clip From ‘Captain America: Civil War’ + First Reviews

Well, the word is out on “Captain America: Civil War.” No, reviews aren’t out, they’re embargoed until next week, but tweets weren’t off the table and our own Russ Fischer has given one major ringing endorsement to the film so far.

Of course in ‘Civil War,’ directed by Joe and Anthony Russo — the defacto new Joss Whedon of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it seems — it’s #TeamCap vs. #TeamIronMan, but we’re hoping that battle isn’t as lame and incoherent as a certain recent superhero face-off movie which we won’t mention by name, even if it was beat by a Melissa McCarthy comedy in its third week at the box-office (this is not a sponsored Marvel post, btw; we wish). So in Marvel’s latest episode, Captain America and his team — which includes Ant-Man, The Falcon, Hawkeye, The Winter Soldier and the Scarlett Witch — are facing off against Iron Man and his team — Black Widow, War Machine, Black Panther, Vision and Spider-Man.

The schism? Whether superheroes should be held accountable and should be run and ordered by the government (though there’s probably more to it than that). The MTV Movie Awards are tonight and while you may or may not be watching it, you can watch the first clip from “Captain America: Civil War” right here. ‘Civil War’ opens in theaters on May 6th. Watch the first clip below, plus a new featurette and TV spots, and beyond that some of the earliest Twitter reactions.
