The singularly titled Marvel Comics films are becoming more and more Avengers, less and less the named superhero. But in the case of Captain America: Civil War, this is to the film’s benefit.
This is the series best to date – a grown up thriller that, for once, avoids the destruction of New York and focuses on the relationship between the superheroes (yes, time and money have been spent on the script!). There’s still a great deal of thrills and spills, but these are more contained as the superheroes fight among themselves.
And there’s a great deal more humour than previous outings – with the introduction of the latest Spiderman (Tom Holland – The Impossible, In the Heart of the Sea), the wise-cracking Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jnr) has more than met his match.
