Royals fans torn over whether to support Captain America or Iron Man in the upcoming Marvel heroes battle royale “Captain America: Civil War,” might want to consider supporting the guy with the shield.
In a social media campaign drumming up interest in the May 6 release, Twitter users are asked whether they’re #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan. Tweet one way or another and you get a (seemingly) personalized message back from the movie’s stars.
In one response, Paul Rudd, whose Ant-Man sides with the Star-Spangled Avenger in the film, says, “We’ve got a good team. We’re like the Kansas City Royals. And not some other jerky team that’s not the Royals.” Rudd also assails those picking Iron Man’s side for being anti-American.
In “Civil War,” the government wants control over the Avengers, and the film pits Captain America (Chris Evans), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Ant-Man (Rudd) and the Scarlet Witch (Elisabeth Olsen) against Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), War Machine (KC’s Don Cheadle), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson).
Spider-Man (Tom Holland) also fits in the mix somehow, the first time ol’ Web-head appears in a Marvel movie.
Some new footage and a trailer were released during the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night. See it here.
