Video: Seriously, there has been way too much footage from Captain America: Civil War shown lately, amongst the millions and millions of TV spots and clips. But stuff like this goofy new promo from Chris Evans and a few friends is exactly the sort of silly advertising we can get behind.
The short clip released today through Mashable is simply Evans delivering an impassioned recap of everything Steve Rogers stands for as Captain America… while Robert Downey Jr, Anthony Mackie, Chadwick Boseman and Elizabeth Olsen solemnly file in behind him, humming Battle Hymn of the Republic. There’s also a delightfully absurd Sebastian Stan cameo to boot.
It’s strangely rousing — even to a non-American like myself! — but it’s a lot more fun that getting snippets of footage doled out to us in TV spot snippets. Though it came out on April 28 in Australia, Captain America: Civil War only hits theatres tomorrow in the US – hence the continued promo clips.
