With less than two months to go before the latest Captain America instalment, Civil War, is released in UK cinemas, a week before its release in the US, a new trailer has built what was already a much hyped movie into one ready to send fans of the franchise into meltdown.
Chris Evans once again suits up as Steve Rogers/Captain America and is joined by an all-star cast including Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow. Also returning to the MCU are Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, William Holt as Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon and Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man.
The trailer also gives the first look at Tom Holland, taking over from Andrew Garfield, as Spiderman.
Check out some of the reactions on Twitter:
If CIVIL WAR isn't top 3 MCU, then that trailer editor deserves every award given to trailers and editors.

The synopsis for the film reads:
“Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.”
Captain America: Civil War is released in UK cinemas on April 29 in the UK and May 6 in the US.
