"Captain America: Civil War" Best Marvel Movie to Date

Updated on May 12, 2016

Yesterday was my second time seeing Captain America: Civil War, and let me tell you, second time's a charm. I'm sure when I see it again tomorrow and the day after that, it will only get better. As a big superhero fan, I have to say Marvel really hit its stride with Civil War. Recently, their films have been lacking. I was upset when they killed off Quicksilver (played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson) in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, after just introducing the character, especially since the imagining the character in Marvel's future feats of Phase Two make my heart quicken. Iron Man Three and Thor: The Dark World were also large disappointments for me, but the new Captain America movie brought back my love for adventure, inhuman powers, ill-timed comedy, and buildings crumbling from awesome explosions, back to life.

The movie centers around Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, dealing with the new restrictions the United Nations have put on the Avengers team, and how he must come up with a plan to right it, especially when it becomes personal. For those who haven't seen other Marvel movies, it is certainly difficult to understand much of what happens in this movie. It references characters such as Howard Stark, Tony Stark aka Iron Man's father and Steve Roger's friend, who is first shown in Captain America: The First Avenger, Bucky Barnes, also from Captain America: The First Avenger, but more recently Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Other reoccurring characters feature: Black Widow, Hawkeye, Sharon Carter, Peggy Carter, Falcon, Antman, Iron Patriot, Vision, and Scarlet Witch. Featuring an all star cast like Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, and Chris Evans, the movie is never short of good acting.

The cast especially surprised me, since a lot of the actors and characters are difficult to play off of each other. Chris Evans is known for his roles in Romantic-Comedies or lighthearted Teen Movies, where Scarlett Johansson is known for being a sex icon. But Marvel's casting director is never short of perfect when it comes to picking the right actor to bring beloved characters to life. I personally wasn't surprised when the unknown actor who was cast to play Spiderman, seemed to be bred to play the role. With the same naivety, dorkiness, and vulnerability of Tobey Maguire's Peter Parker, Tom Holland exemplifies the character perfectly and makes the audience anticipate every time the character comes onto the screen so they can hear one of his perfectly crafted one liners.

All in all, Marvel hit a home run with the release of Captain America: Civil War, and in May too, making it the perfect summer movie. For those who haven't yet, put on a Marvel Movie Marathon, and then head to the theaters to see the new Captain America!
