HERO COMPLEX

'Captain America: Civil War' trailer divides the Avengers in half

Disney's next Marvel movie, "Captain American: Civil War" will divide "The Avengers" in half. On one side is Captain America, and on the other is Iron Man. And thanks to this new trailer that debuted at the Super Bowl, we can now see the divided teams in action, plus Ant-Man. 

The next Captain America movie marks the beginning of the end of Earth's mightiest heroes. Tony Stark and Steve Rogers will rip the group apart, forcing friends to become foes. Perhaps this is why "Avengers: Age of Ultron" spent so much time building up the relationship between Black Widow and Hawkeye, because now these two are separated. 

And if you needed help sorting out team Iron Man from team Captain America, here's a look at the upcoming superhero bloodshed in emoji form.

Team Iron Man is made up of Black Panther, War Machine, Vision and Black Widow. 

And Team Captain America includes Winter Soldier, Ant-Man, Scarlet Witch, the Falcon and Hawkeye. 

Also of note is Captain America's shield. The supposedly indestructible metal appears to be all clawed up, perhaps scarred by the claws of newcomer Black Panther (who will be played by actor Chadwick Boseman). Plus this is the first time we're seeing Ant-Man footage in the "Civil War" movie. Clearly just about every superhero is in this film.

"Captain America: Civil War" will be released on May 6.
