Early Twitter Reviews Suggest “Captain America: Civil War” Wins Good Reviews
People can officially talk about Captain America: Civil War without fear of retribution from Disney’s lawyers. The social media embargo lifted last week and everyone let out a sigh of relief because the prognosis looks good.
It’s hard to get the full story in 140 characters or less, but we can get a pretty decent idea about whether or Marvel’s latest flick swings towards good or bad. As a fan, I’m always wary of reviews, especially by people I don’t know and trust, but it’s difficult to find anyone that has yet to loathe this movie, which is a pretty good sign.
The standouts seem to be Tom Holland’s Spider-man and Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther and that’s awesome. Especially the word on Black Panther because he’s such an awesome character and I cannot wait for his movie. Although I have to say as a fan of the MCU’s Captain America franchise, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is my favorite Marvel movie to date, I’m a little worried about the lack of conversation about Steve.
We won’t know for sure about Captain America: Civil War until the full reviews come out this week, but personally I’m pretty excited about what I’ve heard so far.
You can check up a round-up of the tweet reviews on Hypable.
Political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability when the actions of the Avengers lead to collateral damage. The new status quo deeply divides members of the team. Captain America (Chris Evans) believes superheroes should remain free to defend humanity without government interference. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) sharply disagrees and supports oversight. As the debate escalates into an all-out feud, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) must pick a side.
Captain America: Civil War is set for release on May 6th, 2016 in the US.
