Why I'm Worried About Marvel's Civil War Movie
I've thought about Civil War and the whole superhero registration issue, and I realized that this movie may not come out well.
First, they're setting up an event large enough to create a major split among teammates whom we've seen stick together through alien invasions, genocidal relatives, and evil robot armies. So unless they decide to have this affect future films, there's a good chance it'll come off as rushed.
And according to an article on Marvel's website, they also plan to include "a new and nefarious villain" that the heroes must defeat. That same article contains a rather long list of characters that includes most of the current Avengers, as well as Bucky Barnes, Ant-Man, Brock Rumlow/Crossbones, Sharon Carter, Black Panther, Thaddeus Ross, and more. Several of these characters have arcs that still haven't played out yet, meaning the movie will be packed full (remember what happened with Age Of Ultron?). Forget two hours, I'd give it three to handle all of them. (Also, if it's about most of the Avengers team and superheroes in general, why isn't it called Avengers:Civil War?)
So how do think Civil War will turn out?
