Captain America and Iron Man butt heads in 'Civil War' trailer

We knew this is inevitable, but it still breaks our hearts to see them fight

Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. pick up their superhero mantles again and fight, not alien forces, but each other in Captain America: Civil War. Strictly speaking, this is Steve Rogers' third movie, but there are so many Avengers and villains who appear in it, it may as well be an Avengers film.

An international incident prompts the government to move for a superhero legislation system – this puts Captain in a bit of a dilemma, since he wants to protect his previously-brainwashed friend Bucky (Sebastian Stan), who caused quite a mess in the previous instalment. This ultimately leads to Captain and Iron Man leading different sides of the divided Avengers.

Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) makes his first appearance in the Marvel cinematic universe, but who we're still dying to see are our insect heroes: Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and Spider-Man (the newly-cast Tom Holland).

Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch, Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye, Anthony Mackie's Falcon, Emily VanCamp's Sharon Carter, Don Cheadle's War Machine, Paul Bettany's Vision and Frank Grillo's Crossbones are all in the film, though only some appear in this trailer. Meanwhile, Daniel Brühl will debut as Baron Zemo, but won't wear his signature purple mask yet.

Captain America: Civil War opens in cinemas on 5 May 2016.
