Cinema Sins Ripped Captain America Trailer

Civil War
While many were easily impressed with the "Captain America: Civil War" trailer, there was bound to be a couple parties that were going to be less than pleased. In the case of Jeremy at Cinema Sins, he found a handful of problems in the short, yet packed, trailer.

Watch his deconstruction below, at your own peril:

One of the more significant sins mentioned by Jeremy happens to be the inclusion of William Hurt as General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross in the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon. Considering how Marvel Studios has gone out of their way to push "The Incredible Hulk" to the back-burner of their franchise pool, everyone should have thought that they would have recast a role that's pivotal, yet little used, as General Ross. Though if the MCU can get away with recasting Terrence Howard with Don Cheadle in the Iron Man franchise, it looks like that door opens both ways.

What was interesting is the mention that Iron Man's arc reactor isn't a source of life anymore, as well as the fact that Col. Rhodes never depended on the reactor himself. However, in the trailer, there's still enough dramatic tension in Bucky's move to rip out the reactors.

Without that reactor, Tony and Rhodey are both at the mercy of the opposing super soldiers. If the armor isn't powered, it's pretty much useless against the twin foes who possess Vibranium accouterments of destruction and super strength. It's not a good scenario to be in, and it looks like the Colonel will be the one to suffer the crippling blow, as his reactor has been ripped out in a later shot.

No matter how you feel about Cinema Sins and their nit-picking ways, it can still be appreciated that Jeremy manages to make some pretty good laughs out of his own frustration. Like it or not, he does have some valid points, and if those don't entertain you, then those audio outtakes at the end will.
