Captain America: Civil War is due in theaters in about two months: This is so soon! We’ve been waiting so patiently for so long—like good little fan-boys and girls—that we almost forgot to be excited about it. But now, Marvel is finally test-screening the film, which means we’ve got some early reactions, and our excitement for the Russo Brothers-directed film is through the roof all over again. So let’s take a look at these reactions: will the 13th Marvel movie finally end the studio’s hot-streak, or will it be the first superhero movie nominated for best picture, as Anthony Mackie so boldly predicted?
Join Jessica Chobot as we examine the first reactions to the film and what they may tell us about the plot of the upcoming film and what it may mean for the future of the rest of the Marvel franchise, on today’s Nerdist News!
Thanks for watching today’s show! Check out the latest episode of The Dan Cave, where Dan Casey is telling you everything you need to know about Doomsday before the release of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. And in case you missed it, check out this fictional imagining from Nerdist and YouTube Space LA’s Women Create Program, that asks: What if you were a woman applying to work at NASA in 1963?
Let us know in the comments what you think of the first reactions to Captain America: Civil War: Are you excited for a darker, more serious, political Marvel movie? Do you think it has a chance at winning an Oscar in 2017?
