Captain America: Civil War is weeks away from release, but a selected few have already been shown the film ahead of it’s premiere later this month. Marvel Studios seems extremely confident in the film, allowing media people to use social media to give their reactions from the recent screenings ahead of reviews that are embargoed until next week.
Not to say this is a excellent gauge of quality of the film overall, it’s just an insight to how others have reacted to the film in the form of these quick posts on social media. Here are some reactions to Civil War.
Russ Fischer from The Playlist and Birth.Movies.Death was in love with the new Spider-Man.

The big battle scene in #CivilWar is an absolute blast. Spider-Man, as you’d expect, steals the show. Ant-Man, as you might not, a close 2nd

Captain America: Civil War is a complex mystery posing a big, fun superhero film. Lots of themes and emotions. Very unexpected & VERY good.

Kevin McCarthy of Nerd Tears and Fox Television.
Eric Eisenberg of Cinema Blend.
Really incredible character work in #CivilWar. Spider-Man, Ant-Man & Black Panther kill it & Wanda/Vision & Bucky/Sam dynamics are wonderful

Next: Black Panther is incredible. Boseman plays him as both regal and full of rage. The most serious character in the film.

These will likely help boost the existing hype for the film and might lead to some mostly positive reviews, along with a Fresh Rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Overwhelming the standout has been Spider-Man and Black Panther, with some not entirely in-love with the film’s villain Baron Zemo.
As per usual, make up your own minds about the film when it comes out and let us know how you thought of it, positive or not.
