Much like Batman v Superman, Captain America: Civil War feels stuck in 2016. Remember a year ago, when Steve Rogers’ mistrust of institutions made sense but it still seemed like he was taking it a bit too far? Now it’s 2017, and Maddy and Mary Ellen can totally see his side. We just want to run away with our brainwashed boyfriend Bucky and escape all of this.
This episode is long. Do we need to keep saying that? Anyway, tune in as Maddy spends way too much time talking about all the Avengers comics she has read, and Mary Ellen talks about the tiny personal moments in this film that make it more emotionally accessible than Batman v Superman.
Lastly, here’s the essay that Maddy mentions during an aside in the episode: sublimezoo.com/2016/05/17/black-…-death-civil-war/
