The latest promotional clip for Captain America: Civil War drops us smack in the middle of the the beginning stages of Marvel's greatest rivalry between Captain America and Iron Man, with the two butting heads over the newly instituted Sokovia Accords that would force superheroes to submit to government regulation. But it's not the new footage, or even Scarlett Johansson's smoldering, yet puzzled look at :35 seconds that has us thirsty for the May 6th release. Instead, our eyes are deadlocked on The Vision.
The Vision (Paul Bettany), the extremely powerful android (or "synthezoid" in Marvel-speak) born from the Mind Stone in Avengers: Age of Ultron, is rocking a sweater. A fucking sweater. Our beloved Avengers are up in arms, itching to break some bones, and the newest raspberry pie-colored addition is sitting there, legs crossed, like he just strolled out of a J.Crew factory sale.
Now, if this doesn't make the android the suavest Avenger yet, I don't know what will. Up until now, Cap was certainly the frontrunner as the all-American farmboy, followed by that long-haired Norse God and the not-so-jolly Green Giant (Sorry, Jeremy Renner). But with footage of The Vision all layered up, it's certainly an upgrade for the weirdo who flew around naked in a cape.
Cosplay your way into theaters next month as The Vision, and you'll be sliding into the DMs of the nerdy girl next to you in no time.
