    The First ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Reactions Are Everything You Hoped

    Well not everything I'd hoped but I'm still going.
    That picture of Cap though, I see that as a future comic con choice for me.

    Moviegoers, assemble!

    With the poor reception of the last superhero clash film, “Batman v Superman,” it would make sense to be a little apprehensive about the upcoming Marvel movie, “Captain America: Civil War.” Critics were slammed over their “Batman” reviews, and then the movie came out, and, yeah ...

    Well, now critics have seen the first screenings of “Civil War,” and word of mouth is spreading. However, unlike “Batman v Superman,” these words aren’t kryptonite. Critics are loving it.

    Even though this movie has been talked about for months, the reactions actually taught us a lot:

    “Civil War” is a “complex mystery.”

    Captain America: Civil War is a complex mystery posing a big, fun superhero film. Lots of themes and emotions. Very unexpected & VERY good.

    And it makes airports not seem so bad.

    I could go on all night with this but one last thing. The airport scene in Civil War is probably the best superhero action scene ever.

    It might even break a few home run records.

    CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR is a Barry Bonds steroids hitting home-run by Marvel & Russo Brothers. And I LOVED Spider-Man in the film. LOVED.

    And it’s going to make all the money.

    CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR is literally going to make all the money.

    — Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) April 9, 2016
    Black Panther is pretty dope.

    Chadwick Boseman is fantastic as Black Panther. Can’t wait to see his solo film. He absolutely nailed the role.

    — Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) April 9, 2016
    It makes getting bit by radioactive spiders cool again.

    Really didn’t think I’d care *that* much seeing Spider-Man hanging out with all the other characters. But there he was and it made me happy!

    — Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) April 9, 2016
    Plus, Spidey’s in it more than you think.

    Oh yeah, the big fight in Captain America: Civil War is cinematic joy. And Spider-Man is so great. He’s in it more than I thought he’d be.

    — Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) April 9, 2016
    Also, there may be a big twist. And it’s time to be worried about one character in particular:

    BvS sucking so hard probably helped this movie even more.I'm sure it was already going to be good but now critics hae a fresh example of how to do the same thing the wrong way (in other words,trying to do a movielike this at the beginning of your universe).

    Oh yeah,David Goyer shouldn't be allowed to do anything that involves color or optimism.If it ain't gritty,he can't do it.

    I don't agree with your title, DC comics has an amazing animation history and it's characters are iconic. They should continue to make movies, it is possible for them to make really great films, just need to the right people involved (directors, writers) that's it. Not that big of a deal. I've been disappointed with the lack of success of they've had so far but am hopeful that if enough is done we can fully enjoy our favorite DC Heroes on the big screen. As "good" as these Marvel films are I just can't seem to get into them really, not as enthusiastic about superhero movies in general now actually.

    DC is my favorite universe and I prefer it's characters and mythology over Marvel's but cinematically they seem woefully lost.
    I am holding a spark of hope for Suicide Squad because of Joker and Harley, who I hope are the main focus.
    I do believe that DC has the capabilities to make great films but I'm losing faith in them because they seem set on not learning from the Man of Steel debacle.

    Man of Steel was "ok" visually, kinda like watchin' 300 with a flying "Leonidas" and a lot more structural damage, but the "Jesus" correlation with Superman was too much to swallow. Soon as they said Clark was 33yo when this "Savior" revelation was starting to come about and that he was to "lead humanity" I threw up in my mouth a little bit and almost switched over to some porn. smh

    The Jesus or Moses correlation was always there but subtlety is no longer honored in storytelling.
    As for 300, at least Leonidas had fire and passion. Man of Steel had indifference and left the audience feeling a sense of malaise.

    See I did love me some 60's, 70's & 80's Marvel.
    X-Men, Fantastic Four, DP-7, Strikeforce Moritouri,
    The New Mutants, Captain America & Spider-Man are some of my most treasured possessions and memories from those era's.

    They felt like if all of it were real, then Marvel is what it could be.
    On the other end, DC is what I'd want it to be if it could be real.

    When I display a larger range of emotion, then you know your character is a Bizarro.

    This is me.I always loved DC and their colorful larger than life world,but the current direction has shown little appreciation for the spirit of the comics,and uses one gimmick (dark and gritty) to play catch-up with Marvel.

    It's complicated
    I agree. The whole reason i enjoyed comic books was their appeal to justice and the american way. Light-hearted, funny, whimsical, etc. I have enough dark shit in my life. I say bring back the light in comics and inspire a new generation cinematically to enjoy life and be better entertained citizens.
