Best Marvel Civil War Fan Trailer Yet!


I’ve seen a couple Civil War fan trailers makin’ the nerd news rounds lately but this one is by far the best! The editing is superb! It combines film clips of Spider-Man, X-Men, Daredevil, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Hulk and even managed to make good use of the cheesy and forgettable 1990 Captain America movie! Don’t be confused by the insertion of a few Watchmen clips in there too. We see a shot of exploding Dr. Manhattan alluding to the villain Nitro (whose act of mass destruction kicked off the Superhero Registration Act) and there is also the clip of the Comedian’s funeral service standing in for what is assumed to be Captain America’s.

Where the other Civil War trailers I have seen tended to be a little choppy in their editing, this one manages to fit scenes together nearly seamlessly, creating the fun effect of these characters actually interacting and fighting with one another. Sadly since Sony has the film rights to Spider-Man and Fox owns the rights to X-Men, Daredevil and Fantastic Four, we may never get to see this ultimate clash of Marvel titans actually hit the big screen. Of course that just makes these little fan-made labors of love all the more exciting!

Ah, a nerd can dream can’t he? At least we still get to look forward to Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor and others joining forces when The Avengers assemble in theaters come 2012!
