Marvel just released the latest trailer for Captain America: Civil War, and the adrenaline pumping action has fanboys and gals getting excited over which superheroes they are rooting for in the new movie - #TeamCap or #TeamIronman

Which Side Will Fans Choose?

Captain America, aka Steve Rogers, stands for “truth, justice, and the American way.” Chris Evans carries that All-American wholesomeness to another level. He’s the kind of jock who made you sick in high school. Yet, you couldn’t help admiring how he protected the nerdy kid that got picked on by the other jocks.

Meanwhile, Iron Man skirts the law almost as much as he doesn’t play by the rules.

Robert Downey, Jr. charmed audiences as bad boy billionaire, Tony Stark, on the big screen. His bravado makes men and women admire and envious at the same time.

So far, we know that Captain America’s loyalties are split between his life-long friend, Bucky Barnes, the “Winter Soldier” from the previous installment, and the team of superheroes that he have become his friends and allies. This tension splits the rest of the heroes to who will side with #TeamCap and who will ally with #TeamIronMan.

Artists Using Lies to Tell the Truth?

This fictional Civil War is also over Stark’s support of more government oversight while Rogers wants to continue operating as freely as they have. This echoes the American Civil War in which, before slavery became a central issue, the country was divided on whether to have more federal control or less.

Someone on Twitter speculated that President Obama’s siding with the FBI over the recent Apple issue is along the lines of #TeamIronMan’s support of more oversight.

In a bit of “worlds colliding” actor John Boyega from Star Wars: The Force Awakens pledged his allegiance to #TeamCap.

To this day casualties from the American Civil War remain greater than losses of all other world wars combined. Fans can only hope that this conflict doesn't tear the team apart.

Either way, this debate moves the conversation away from the upcoming release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - only two weeks away on March 25 - in anticipation of the May 6 release of Captain America: Civil War.
