The first trailer for the newest Captain America movie dropped this week on Jimmy Kimmel. Ever since the internet has been abuzz dissecting and analyzing every little frame of detail. No doubt Civil War is hyped to be one of the year's most anticipated blockbusters, but its hard not to feel the superhero fatigue finally setting in.
The newest Captain America movie has the marvel hero going up against former ally Ironman after a disagreement about how to regulate action from superheroes. While the plot sounds inciting, the trailer runs its basic course of the MCU rulebook. Inciting incident, lines crossed, an imminent threat, loud explosions and fast cuts. It's apparent that most Marvel movies have followed a basic formula, and why not? Their making a butt-load of money so why mess with something that's not broken? The only drawback is that audiences might be getting tired of the same rehashed plot points and characters. It won't be long until the masses start asking for something new, and in that retrospect it's difficult to say if Marvel will deliver. How many times can we see the same kind of characters doing the same thing over and over?
Stylistically there's not much that sets Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy or Captain America apart. While this adds to the MCU shared universe, it also increases the risk of growing stale. Civil War might be one of Marvel's last chance to switch it up enough to keep our interest. The superhero craze isn't done yet, might we might be nearing the death rattle.
