Cap, Iron Man And Black Panther Adorn EW Cover For Captain America: Civil War


Though they may be at ends with one another come May, Captain America, Black Panther and Iron Man have united for this week’s Entertainment Weekly cover, bringing us a striking new image of the fearless threesome suited and booted. It marks the first trinket from a slew of coverage, with the outlet promising to take us behind the scenes of the airport clash glimpsed in the show-stopping debut trailer for Captain America: Civil War.

Granted, today’s still image doesn’t necessarily reveal much by way of plot, but it’s an eye-catching reveal nonetheless, and we can now look forward to more coverage pertaining to the aforementioned clash and Chadwick Boseman’s former king of Wakanda in the coming days.


Finding themselves on opposing sides of the monumental Civil War, Cap (Chris Evans) and Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) are at loggerheads over the proposed superhero act that would ensure governments kept costumed heroes on a tighter leash. Ever the one to trust his own moral compass, Evans’ star-spangled hero takes issue with the new status quo, while Tony, wracked with guilt over the events that unfolded in Age of Ultron, sides with the controversial act. And so, the titular tussle is born.

Speaking with EW, Evans highlighted how the concept of heroes vs. heroes is much more compelling to the viewer than Earth’s Mightiest Heroes facing off against waves upon waves of canon fodder. It will, in theory, allow for Joe and Anthony Russo’s threequel to explore more of each character, and that can only be a good thing in such a colossal ensemble piece.

“In most of the movies, there’s no question who we should be siding with,” Evans says. “We all agree Nazis are bad, aliens from space are bad. But this movie’s the first time where you really have two points of view. It becomes a question of morality and I don’t think [Cap] has ever been so uncertain with what right and wrong is.”

Captain America: Civil War will open in theaters on May 5, 2016.
