How Captain America: Civil War Will Impact Avengers: Infinity War

Posted

The third installment to the Avengers film series is still a year away to hit the big screen but fans are already hurling their predictions on the dynamic of the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and a band of intergalactic outlaws, who will survive after the battle ends, who will die for good to triumph against evil, etc.

The [Avengers Style] Cold War is Over but [Avengers Style] Cold War Thinking Survives

Chronologically speaking, Avengers: Infinity Wars [– Part 1] will take place in the aftermath from Captain America: Civil War where the Avengers are still torn apart after questioning authority and taking sides which brought about their own version of the Cold War into the 21st century. The shredding of the Iron Curtain between Team Captain America and Team Iron Man has to be done before or in the middle of the flick and not take forty-six years in order for them to have the chance to wipe the floor with Thanos, an intergalactic tyrant who is relentless in the fulfillment of his twisted grand dream of remodeling the universe to his way of looking by imbuing his gauntlet with the Infinity Stones, six astronomically powerful gems that grant its wielder absolute and ultimate power—the power of a god. It’s clear that despite the Avengers’ reputation as humanity’s greatest defenders, there is a need for backup.

A Force to be (Wreck)oned With

No doubt that assistance from  the Guardians of the Galaxy can unleash a tenfold against Thanos, but are people like Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye (aka Vision), Thor and Hulk whose team spirit has been cut down after their internal struggle (with the exception of Dr. Banner who was in India at the time of the internal conflict of the Avengers but that does not make him an exception to the repercussions), work side by side attuned with the fugitives Drax, Groot, Rocket, Gamora and Star Lord? Is there still room for trust among the Avengers in what may be the greatest crisis they will ever face? Not just within their circle but outside of it, especially towards Gamora who is the adopted daughter of Thanos.

As the saying goes that trust takes years to build, seconds to break and forever to repair, but other than a common enemy and the desire to save the day, perhaps a little bonding time by the fireside over a cup of tea or hot chocolate or some beer (though not literally) can lessen the time required for trust to be assembled. Maybe a friendly rivalry will spring from the idiosyncratic bondings between self-describe genius, playboy and billionaire philantrophist Tony Stark and Rocket over who makes the best arsenal. Love for family could be a common ground for Thor and Drax. Star Lord, who has been homesick for Earth ever since his abduction, could find some sympathy from World War II veteran Steve Rogers, who very much understands what it feels to be behind the times. A simple exchange of “We are Groot” and “Hulk” will be more than enough for the brawns of their teams.

United we stand divided we fall. That was one of the lessons the audience learned from Captain America: Civil War. Whether the Avengers learned about it or not will be vital to their victory against Thanos since they’re not the only ones who will battle the despot.
