With Batman v Superman having topped the box-office for two weeks now, attention has turned to the next big superhero brawler hitting screens: Captain America: Civil War.

Although there are still weeks between now and the film reaching cinemas, the social media embargo on reactions has dropped, with both fans and critics alike giving positive reviews.

One thing to note; unlike the initial reactions to Batman v Superman, most of these reactions are from actual critics, many of whom have pointed out flaws in the film.

Overall, the feeling seems to be that Marvel has once again triumphed, creating a fun film with incredible set pieces. Criticism has been levied at some pacing issues and villain Baron Zemo being ‘wasted’ (however, the director’s have previously said this film is meant to set him up for future evil doings).

Meanwhile, Spider-Man and Black Panther both seemingly fit well into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, both debuting in the film.

Of course, many have compared the flick to Zack Snyder’s DC film and for obvious reasons: both feature ‘good’ superheroes fighting each other, both introduce numerous comic book favourites and both have been released within a two month period.

In recent weeks, more and more information about the film has appeared online. We’ve rounded up everything you need to know in this article, right here.
