Spoiler-free impressions: Civil War upped the ante on The Winter Soldier, my favourite Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) installment. The Russo brothers, reprising directorial chores, deftly mixed drama and comedy without losing their vice-like grip on the ideological conflict between heroes who are friends first.

The First Avenger, The Winter Soldier and Civil War is a superlative superhero trilogy and underscores my assertion that Captain America's big screen adventures are touchstones of the MCU!

Make Mine Marvel.

PS Spidey was awesome! But not as awesome as Aunt May! 😉
PPS Mmmmarisa Tomei! 😍
