Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie flew overnight from Germany where they only have one week left of production just to see the fans at the D23 Expo and to deliver some first look footage from Captain America: Civil War. And thank Thor they did because the scenes were the perfect preview to what will surely be another amazing Marvel Cinematic Universe installment.

Tiny spoilers from the trailer from here on! BEWARE! 

The footage featured a lot of Captain America, Black Widow and Falcon kicking some major ass together, but we also got introduced to the serious tension between Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America.

"Sometimes I want to punch you in your perfect teeth," Tony tells Steve. The feud between them has clearly boiled over to other members of The Avengers, because Clint and Natasha were fighting each other, but she made sure to ask if they were "still friends" mid-scuffle.

"Depends how hard you hit me," he quipped.

Paul Rudd's Ant-Man also made an appearance in the footage, and he fangirled hard over Captain America. We don't blame him, but he did shake Steve's hand for entirely too long.

"Think you for thanking of me," he told the Cap awkwardly before cringing over this mistake. Classic Paul Rudd.

"I'm a big, big, big Disney fan. To this day, that's my idea of heaven," Chris Evans told the crowd. "It's an amazing experience to be somehow in any capacity involved with this family. When I'm having a bad day, I watch other people's home movies. I'm on YouTube watching people's experience at Disney Land."

"And then we go in our trailer and sing the Frozen theme song," Anthony added.

Doctor Strange


Fans were treated to some scoop on Doctor Strange during the Marvel panel, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch.

"Doctor Strange is something we've been working on since before the inception of MCU," Marvel president Kevin Feige said.

There was no footage to show, as filming hasn't started yet. But with some art work from the film, we got our first look at Benedict Cumberbatch in his full Doctor Strange costume. And he looks like a bonafide badass.

"It has girls, cars, explosions and a little bit of astro projections…the usual fare," Benedict Cumberbatch said via a video message from London. "I can't wait to tackle him and it and bring you something you haven't seen before." 

Ditto, Ben. Ditto.
