With Captain America: Civil War right around the corner, Marvel is pulling out all the stops with a series of TV spots, all imparting the high stakes of this MCU entry while reminding audiences just how many characters are entering the fray for the pic’s central conflict, between Chris Evans’ Cap and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man.
The latest spot doesn’t contain much by way of new plot information, but it highlights Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch and Anthony Mackie’s Falcon, both looking understandably concerned by the devastating outcome of an event involving multiple Avengers and civilian casualties, before delivering a money shot: Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) sinking his vibranium-tipped claws into Captain America’s shield, which is also made from the rare and highly durable mineral.

The Panther is definitely one of Civil War‘s most anticipated new players (right behind or neck-in-neck with Tom Holland’s high-school Spider-Man, depending on who you ask), and he’s going to be a pretty formidable fighter from the looks of what we’ve seen so far.
Captain America: Civil War opens May 6.
Directed by Anthony & Joe Russo and from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, 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.
