Holy Shit: ‘Captain America 3’ to Co-Star Iron Man, Kick Off Civil War Storyline

Iron Man + Captain America

Marvel Studios has done a really good job of throwing us curveballs and not being shy about mixing things up. Looks like they’re getting ready to do that again as Robert Downey Jr. Has just joined the cast of Captain America 3 and that film will reportedly kick off the Civil War storyline in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Ho-lee-shit.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

The Blu-Ray isn’t due until the 9th of September but if you’re down with digital copies you can watch Captain America: The Winter Soldier again right now. The Winter Soldier is one of the best of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies to date (top three by my reckoning!). It’s got action, it’s got adventure, it’s got an old fashioned spy movie plot, it’s got great actors giving great performances, and just enough tie in to the rest of the Marvel Universe that when the bad guys eventually flip the table, well, they really flip the table.

If you’ve already seen the movie you should probably add it to your collection. If you haven’t seen it you should see it! The best way to do that is legally and if you use the links below (you may have to turn off your ad blocker) then you’ll help us keep the lights on at Awesome Friday HQ.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Clip: Cap + Co Storm A Freighter And It’s Awesome

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

I don’t normally like to post full clips from movies but this one has a few reasons why checking it out is in your interest:

  1. It’s clearly from early in the film and doesn’t show the very end of the scene so other than giving us an idea how the action is going to be in the movie offers very little in the way of spoilers (most of the dialogue is in the trailers, also)
  2. it’s an awesome scene that has made me more excited to see the movie.

Let’s watch!
