Video Of The Week: An Enhanced Breakdown Of Everything In The Civil War Trailer
Trailer reviews are stupid. Trailer reactions are dumb. I’ve never understood the appeal or logic behind them.Trailer breakdowns and analysis on the other hand are often extremely interesting and quite useful for pointing out all the things you missed.
With the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War having just dropped you can bet the YouTube is brimming with reactions, reviews and analyses of that one itty bitty trailer. There are plenty of sources to go for a solid breakdown but I’m quite partial to IGN’s Rewind Theatre.

Here in particular they try to put all the snippets from the Civil War trailer into the context of the Civil War comic storyline. They also do a decent job of trying to put everything in chronological order as well as pointing out all the things you missed.
There’s also rampant speculation.
It’s a fascinating watch.
Bonus: Mr Sunday Movies pointed out that Miss/Captain Marvel can be seen quite prominently in the Marvel logo sequence of this trailer which may hint at her appearance in Captain America: Civil War. This may be plausible as a little embedded tease if a certain observation of mine proves true. Consider it proof by induction. In the Marvel logo sequence for Jessica Jones the French national flag seems to be clearly visible for just long enough to notice. It may be an optical illusion or the drugs I’m taking but if it is really there then Marvel could quite possibly be embedding teases and easter eggs in its logo sequence. Why else would it keep getting longer and more drawn out?
