With a 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and 8.6/10 on IMDb, the consensus seems clear; the new Captain America movie by Marvel is really, really good – possibly one of the best Marvel films yet. In this new movie, the superheroes are divided into two camps after a disaster leads the UN to monitor the activities of the Avengers in an effort to avoid collateral damage in their operations. Some are a fan of this interventions, others not so much. This movie makes us excited, and here are the top reasons why:
1. The trailer looks amazing
That music, those scenes, that dialogue… this trailer is enticing!
2. The new Spiderman
The new Spiderman is a young, gangly and endearing teen, played by Tom Holland, who also played Isaac in the post-apocalyptic “How I live Now”. He’s very cute and we suspect we’ll be seeing much more of him in the future… at least we hope so!
3. Our favorite superheroes going up against each other
Will it be bloody or more like play-fighting? No spoilers! The only way to find out is to watch the movie (or read any number of reviews online… but what’s the fun in that?). Seeing our favorite superheroes go head to head with each other and finding ourselves unsure of who we want to side with is unnerving but very interesting because we love them all!
4. More Captain America
Let’s be honest, we can never get enough of this all-American hero. He has it all; the classic good looks, the honest and kind demeanor, he’s a gentleman through and through. He’s also humble because he started off much weaker than the man we know today, and has held onto that humility throughout the movies. We could all do with a little more Captain A in our lives.
5. Ant Man joins in
Making his debut in the comic series just last year, Paul Rudd gives this movie humor and levity while also showing us how badass Ant Man can be when he’s teamed up with the other superheroes. He doesn’t get lost in the crowd; instead he shows us once more how much you can do when you’re tiny.
6. Black Widow kicks serious butt
What the Marvel movies need more of is women, and Scarlett Johansson does a great job of holding up the fort, for now – we still want more women! But Black Widow is truly impressive in the movie, showing us how well women can fight and making hard choices about allegiances to the two sides of the conflict.
