This Civil War II Trailer Is a Shamelessly Cool Way to Sell Comics

Remember the excellent 2006-7 comic series that ripped the Marvel Universe asunder? Civil War! That’s the one. The arc Marvel Studios is loosely adapting for film next month. Well, Marvel’s at it again with Civil War II. But instead of Captain America vs. Iron Man, it’ll be Captain Marvel vs. Iron Man. Considering the, umm, timing, do you think this is merely a shameless way to promote brand recognition to sell more comics? Watch the trailer and give me your thoughts.

The premise is interesting though. It’s Minority Report, but with superheroes. It’s clear they’re incorporating the Inhumans in a greater capacity to enlighten the general audience on Marvel’s other mutant team, before their movie which is slated for a 2020 release. Also, let’s not forget the Captain Marvel film, slated for 2018.

  1. Well, looks like I am on #TeamIronMan for this one too. Although Captain Marvel should be able to wipe the floor with him. It’s interesting enough but as others mentioned, yeah it does seem like a cash grab to align with the movie.

  2. Honestly, I’m a bit leery of this big crossover event. I mean “Hey everybody, this guy who we’ve never heard of before can predict the future, so let’s punch each other!” seems like a fairly lame premise. I mean, what separates that guy from all the other time travelers/precognatives/alternate universe folk that are running around, anyway?
