The Marvel Cinematic Universe has taught Hollywood the value of having a multi-tiered franchise that reconvenes every few years for a big Avengers-sized event.
However, as the fans who grew up reading comics in the continuity-dense eras the Marvel Studios films draw from can attest, the real benefit is that this allows characters to influence each other’s stories in new ways. Thus far, the MCU is somewhat limited in that regard, with at most an obligatory nod to the various Avengers in each of the “solo” films, TV shows, and so on.
The guys at MCU Exchange seek to change that, putting together a trailer-style refresher on in the lead up to Captain America: Civil War, which some are calling a more effective teaser than the ones officially released by Marvel Studios..
Incorporating clips and soundbites from almost every MCU film released to date, along with relevant asides to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Jessica Jones, the MCU Supercut – The Road to Civil War video tracks back through various instances that represent the differing approaches to superhero duty that inform Civil War’s main characters of Captain America and Iron Man.
