Marvel Changes Captain America & Iron Man's Relationship To "Complicated"

Steve Rogers and Tony Stark won't be exchanging Valentine's Day gifts this year.

As part of Marvel's marketing campaign for Captain America: Civil War, they've posted a faux-status update on the film's official Facebook page. It shows that Captain America's relationship status has been changed to "In a Complicated Relationship with Iron Man."

Check it out in the image below.

 

Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May.

Captain America: Civil War will arrive in theaters on May 6, 2016.

    The two factions are tiny. This was a fairly good comic but they at the very least needed the X-Men back from Fox for this film. 6v5? More like Captain America:Civil Disturbance.

  1. Well what do you expect when you're pitting superheroes against each other. That is so uncool.

    This isn't a change. Their relationship has been complicated since the day they met.

    You'd need a six hour TV miniseries or something to do The Civil War story justice on screen, regardless of how many characters you have to work with. It would be a complete mess to expect to throw in the X-Men and, whomever else you want, into this film in its current run time and have it make any sense whatsoever. The majority of the cast would become nothing more than cameos. Imagine how much you'd complain then.
