The Final Civil War Trailer

Apologies for the late response but between work and the arrival of Tom Clancy's The Division I need sleep!

Now, before I get started, don't talk to Epic Voice Guy - Jon Bailey - about this trailer. But do check out his YouTube chanel and the video he made in response to the final Civil War trailer because he raises some valid points.

So we've got just over a month until Captain America: Civil War is released and we finally get to see the man everyone has been waiting to see...Spider-Man. But before we get into that, what else do we see? It's more of a story trailer, there's definitley a lot of action, but we learn more about what's going on.

Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) is back, as Secretary of State he's now gunning for all of the Avengers rather than just Hulk. Using the Sokovian Accords, the Battle of New York and the infiltration of S.H.I.E.L.D. by Hydra to try and exercise control over the Avengers. This will obviously result in dividing the team rather than controlling them. In a complete role reversal, Cap goes from the soldier, the company man to being the rebel fighting the system. And Stark moves in the opposite direction, becoming the leader of those who support the regulation and oversight by governments. Both have their reasons for their choices; for Cap it's S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Hydra corruption, lack of trust in politicians, and Bucky A.K.A. the Winter Soldier. Stark on the other hand is still dealing with the fact he almost wiped out the human race by creating Ultron. The fear vision Scarlett Witch gave him can't be helping either. It seems that a real focal point for the movie and the reason for which the different team members are chosing their side is Bucky. Only Cap knows Bucky as well as the Winter Soldier and can differentiate between the two whereas everyone else simply knows him as the Winter Soldier and nothing more! It was hinted that Bucky is responsible for the death of Stark's parents and apparently framed for the explosion we see in the trailer. The same explosion that T'Challa (Black Panther) is caught in, which would explain his interest in the situation, although he's supposed to be the outsider of the movie. As I said, with everything going on, Bucky seems to be right in the middle of it!

Of course there's more to it than a simple falling out. Hydra is almost definitley involved, manipulating from the shadows as always. Brock Rumlow returns, as to whether he goes by 'Crossbones' is another question, but he's apparently very annoyed at Cap for what happened to him in the last movie. Daniel Bruhl is making his first appearance as (Baron) Helmut Zemo, although it's meant to be a smaller role at this point, setting up another movie; possibly Infinity War Part 1. Hydra is definitley going to take interest in anything that could weaken or disband the Avengers, as would Thanos.

As for the trailer itself, I like it. Marvel aren't giving away too much, just little snippets to peak our interest. It's good to see Spider-Man, even if we don't get to see Tom Holland as such. However, it was a mistake to reveal his alliance with Stark. Even though it was cool to see his suit has Stark tech, I would have quite happily debated which team he'd join until I saw the movie. The trailer has definitely reheated the death of an Avenger debate. Not only do we have the photo of Stark holding a possibly dead War Machine in his arms but we've now seen War Machine shot down with Stark screaming his name. Would Marvel really reveal to us who will die in the trailer or is it all a ruse to hide the real victim or to make us think an Avenger will die? Is that why they added new members to the team at the end of Age of Ultron? It's worth noting that die hard fans have found a shot in the new trailer of Bucky on the ground with his metal arm ripped off! Could this be the end of Bucky? On the flip side, think of all the amazing things Stark could make for Bucky if he joins the Avengers!

Above all the funniest thing about this trailer is that it's for a movie titled Captain America: Civil War, but all anyone wants to see is Spider-Man!

The Snyder Cut | Wouldn't Be The First Time a Director Got a Second Chance

It seems that a fairly common occurrence amongst movies tied to Warner Bros. is the magical disappearing/reappearing director. Does that mean there's hope for the Snyder Cut? I certainly hope so! Ever since Justice League hit cinemas in 2017 - possibly even before - fans have been calling for Zack Snyder's original vision to be released. Snyder famously faced issues regarding the darker tone and longer run times his movies were taking, especially after the negative response to 'Batman v Superman'. This of course led to rewrites of the superhero team-up movie, and certain plotlines established or teased in 'BvS' - including the epic Knightmare scene - being dropped. The director then left the production after the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in by the studio to finish the movie, this included the completion of post production and some major reshoots, further altering the movie. All of which resulted in a movie that is drastically

Dune | Moustache Trailer Reaction

Like one of the massive space ships that feature within it, the trailer for Denis Villeneuve's take on 'Dune' has landed... and it's magnificent. If you've not seen it, or you simply want to watch it again, you can check it out below: Trying to tame Frank Herbert's legendary sci-fi novel, it seems, is a challenge like no other. But if anyone is up to the task, it's a fair bet that it's Denis Villeneuve. The French-Canadian director is no stranger to reviving beloved sci-fi properties; Blade Runner 2049 is a worthy sequel to the original Blade Runner, and an outstanding movie in its own right - the best of 2017 in my opinion. Add to that his previous projects (Sicario, Arrival, Prisoners), and you've got a director with a talent for combining complex narratives, fascinating characters and stunning visuals, in a way that's both gripping and intelligible. From the moment the trailer begins you can feel the epic scale of what has been created here. G

Long Way Up | Average Guy TV Review

Ewan McGregor, Charley Boorman, and the Long Way Round team are finally back for their third epic adventure, and given how 2020 has turned out, they did it just in time. Right now it's the closest we can get to experiencing these far off places, making 'Long Way Up' a perfect piece of escapism. Beginning their trip at the southern most tip of South America, in Ushuaia, they'll travel 13,000 miles through 13 countries. Their route will have them criss-cross between Argentina and Chile, before entering Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico and the US, crossing the finish line in Los Angeles. This new adventure is quite different to their previous outings, and yet it all feels very familiar. Despite the gang being more than a decade older - not to mention some pretty life-changing motorcycle accidents for Charley along the way - the gang really haven't changed all that much. Not that that should come as much of a s
