A new promotional artwork for Captain America: Civil War gives us a look at the characters rocking in their new costumes with Hawkeye looking to have received a major overhaul with a purple leather suit. The factions have also now been revealed.
Other heroes who got an overhaul?include?War Machine sporting a newly upgraded energy-based shoulder canon, Falcon now having a drone, and Winter Soldier sporting no mask with lesser weapons, Screen Rant reported. This may also be Iron Man’s new Bleeding Edge Armor according to recent rumors.
Ant-Man, Scarlett Witch, and Spider-Man are absent from the promo art. Thor is also missing but it is expected as reports said that the God of Thunder will be too preoccupied to deal with events in Asgard.
Hulk is also missing despite rumors that he will be making an appearance after actor Mark Ruffalo was sighted on-set. According to Screen Rant, the Hulk will highly likely appear in the film as General ?Thunderbolt? Ross was sighted in the Captain America: Civil War trailer.
Black Panther appearing on Iron Man?s team is surprising as Marvel Boss Kevin Feige said T?Challa will?not be siding with any of the heroes. However, Black Panther teaming-up with Tony Stark may be possible if previous rumors are to be believed that Winter Soldier killed his father?in Civil War.
As the story of this latest Marvel movie is a political one, heroes may jump ship to the other team if they feel that they are serving the team with wrong ideals. Spider-Man did this in the Civil War comics. However, someone may also be serving as a spy to collect intel.
According to Heroic Hollywood, one of the Avengers will be serving as a double agent. Numerous people suggested that the double agent is Black Widow as she was seen to be a faithful ally of Steve Rogers in Captain America: Civil War.
According to Screen Rant, the authenticity of the artwork have not yet been verified. Hawkeye actor Jeremy Renner, who slipped his allegiance to Captain Rogers recently, has tweeted the photos online which leads a little more credibility on the authenticity of the photos.
