Well it’s only fair to look at what the Marvel Cinematic Universe has for us after trumpeting a couple of DC offerings. It’s fair to say 2014’s Captain America: Winter Soldier was arguably the best Marvel offering to date – although Guardians of the Galaxy was the most F.U.N! Brought to us by the Russo brothers, Anthony and Joe, Winter Soldier had an intelligent, politcal edge to it reminiscent of the reactionary films of the 1970’s such as The Manchurian Candidate or The Parallax View or Three Days of the Condor. The latter of course being particularly pertinant as it too starred Robert Redford.
Marvel were clearly happy with the second outing for Cap, as they handed the reigns of his third standalone movie – Captain America: Civil War – to the Russo brothers as well as getting them on board to direct the third film in the Avengers narrative arc – Avengers: Infinity War Part I & Part II. Here’s a nifty trailer to tide you over until its 29th April release here in the UK.
