To date, budding Marvelites have been searching high and wide in search of any promotional material for Captain America: Civil War, and so far, it’s an effort that has proven largely fruitless. In the aftermath of Disney’s D23 conference, a series of leaked screenshots and footage (which can be seen above) gave us an indication of the tone of Joe and Anthony Russo’s hotly-anticipated threequel, though without any official word from Marvel, fans have been left longing for some form of promo to come from the horse’s mouth.
And though it’s not strictly speaking part of Civil War‘s subdued marketing pizazz, artwork for the Blu-ray release of Avengers: Age of Ultron subtly references the division between Tony Stark and Steve Rogers – played by Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, respectively. We’ve long seen the pair clash across both Avengers films, but today’s new-fangled artwork places Captain America and Iron Man in two distinct camps: The heart and the head.

Now that footage has been broadcast at both the Disney D23 event back in August and the recent Asia Pop ComicCon, it’s really only a matter of time before Marvel and the House of Mouse debut the teaser trailer for Captain America: Civil War in high definition, allowing the Internet to dissect each and every frame.
Going off of the trailer description, though, it’ll be a crowded affair – reflecting the nature of the film, really – with the old Avengers guard of Evans, Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Scarlet Johansson and Anthony Mackie mingling with the newcomers, such as Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man and Paul Bettany’s The Vision. What’s interesting, though, is that there was nary a mention of Spider-Man in the clip, indicating that Marvel is perhaps saving its prodigal son for a more grand reveal.
