The big push is beginning in the marketing department for the May release of Captain America: Civil War. After learning earlier this week that the film will be 146 minutes, or two hours and twenty-six minutes overall and that it would be the longest of the Marvel films, they’ve now released the second main trailer for the film. And oh boy is it a doozy.

Plot concept: “Captain America: Civil War” picks up where “Avengers: Age of Ultron” left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
