While in LA last month, I got to be one of the first people to see Captain America: Civil War – almost a month before it hit theaters (which is today!). To say I was blown away is an understatement. Most of you know how big of a Marvel fan I am, so I have been looking forward to this film for a long time. I knew going in that it most likely would vary from the comic books, which is a good thing because I like to be surprised (and Joe Russo, one of the Directors, agrees with me), but I was surprised by just how much. It was like watching a whole new story and I loved the way they did it.

Captain America: Civil War is full of action, drama, and even some romance. I always promise no spoilers so I won’t give anything away but I will say that this is my favorite Marvel movie yet. Yes, it even trumps Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 1 as my all-time favorite. The tension between Captain America and Iron Man is done perfectly. It is a story about politics and each of them is doing what they truly feel deep down is the right thing to do. In the comic books, I am one thousand percent #TeamIronMan, but with the movie version, I honestly cannot choose. They both make some very valid points and I just don’t know which way is the best answer.

Spider-Man Joins the Fight

I love every character in this film but the addition of Tom Holland as Spider-Man was brilliant. He is incredible as Peter Parker! He has the humor, the youth, and the excitement. I loved watching him on the big screen as one of the most iconic superheroes out there. Some of you guys have asked me if Stan Lee makes another cameo in this film, I won’t say anything, but has he ever missed a Marvel movie before?

The Battle Scenes

The battle scenes in this film are amazing but I will be honest, it is strange to watch some of my favorite heroes fighting each other and not a common villain. Even though I knew this was coming, it was intense to watch. The airport scene is probably my favorite of the whole movie. This is one REALLY cool thing that happens that I cannot talk about because I don’t want to ruin it for you guys – but watch Ant-Man closely. I may have shed a tear or two during the movie as well. It is truly full of emotion – there is a huge reveal at the end that had me sad and mad for one of my favorite characters. You really do not want to miss this movie!

Post Credit Scenes

As with all Marvel movies, there are some post-credit scenes. I got to see one – and there is a second one as well! So I plan to go see Captain America: Civil War for a second time this weekend for many reasons, but one is to see that second scene!

Captain America Civil War Personalized Shirts

To help celebrate the release of Captain America: Civil War, has lots of personalization items. I could have spent hours looking through them all – but I finally settled on a Black Widow shirt and a Scarlet Witch shirt with my daughters’ names on the back. Those are two pretty strong and pretty amazing women from the film, and I want my girls to have great role models. The process was easy, I could have put their names anywhere on the shirts (and I could change color and size of the lettering as well as color of the shirt too!) and decided to put them on the back. We are eagerly awaiting them and I cannot wait for my daughters to represent the women of Civil War and show off their awesome shirts thanks to Disney Store! Check out the personalization shop here!

About Captain America: Civil War

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

  4. Debbie Northcutt on
    My grandsons are truly excited to see this movie and my oldest talks about it constantly. It truly looks action packed and has a great cast of characters! Personally I am a fan of Iron Man! I think I'm pretty excited to see the movie as well, but will wait until it's on DVD!
  5. I am so excited to see this. Civil War is one of the best story arcs in the comic books, and I can't wait to see what they do with it on the big screen.

    I really appreciated new Cap Civil War and specially the introduction of new charac such as panther and Spidyyy
  7. Amber Ludwig on

  8. Annmarie W. on
    We love all the Captain America movies! In fact, my daughter is out with friends right now seeing the new one. My hubby & I will take our son this weekend!
  9. I love both teams & I am devastated that these two heroes go against each other!! I know it is just a movie, but has the world gone BAD!?!? I'm glad you didn't give anything away, but the "tears" part has me a little frazzled! The cast in this movie is outstanding! Thanks for an honest review ?
  10. Nichole Patrick on
    My two teenage daughters have seen this new movie but I haven't yet. I figured it would be a good date night movie with the hubby. Looks exciting!
  11. Jeena Bittenbender on
    My Grandkids are all about Captain America and Iron man. Everything has to be red. Even glasses for their eyes. Its pretty amusing...
  12. I seriously need to marathon the Marvel movies because I have only seen the first Captain America (which I loved) and the first two Iron Man movies. I want to see Civil War, but I am afraid I won't understand it without having seen the other movies.
  13. Linda Szymoniak on
    I just loved this movie. I have to agree with so many of the reviews that say it's the best of the Marvel franchise movies so far. It even had a couple of twists I didn't predict. I do love how Marvel always has a little short clip after the credits, and this time they had not only one, but two! Pity how many people left the theatre as soon as the credits started rolling.
  14. I'm really looking forward to seeing this movie! If I had to choose a side, it would be Iron Man, because greater public safety trumps individual privacy.
  15. Yajaira HERNANDEZ on
    #TeamCaptainAmerica My son told that is the best movie of the year. We go this week to see it.
  16. Tamra Phelps on
    My nephews are really wanting to see this! I'm intrigued by the idea of these superheroes battling each other...but I don't know if I like that, lol.
  17. Heather Stone on
    George couldn't wait to return home from his deployment so that he could see this movie with our boys. It was a car ride divided haha. I am team Ironman!!!
  18. Sharon Bugar on
    I cant't wait to take my grand son who loves all super heros especailly spider man and iron man! The reviews sounds very promising and it would make a great summer evening to go and watch it.
  19. Shakeia Rieux on
