The Prodigy’s Blog "Captain America: Civil War"

May 6, 2016

For those of you who have been living under a rock this week, Captain America: Civil War was released in theaters and it is awesome. Currently getting a 92% on Rotten Tomatoes, this movie is a front runner for best summer movie of 2016. 


The movie pits Tony Stark’s Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) against Steve Rogers’ Captain America (Chris Evans) in an all out war dividing the superhero world. This divide leaves us with a choice; follow the Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist that is Tony Stark or the Strong Hearted, Stars and Stripes Captain America?


For BJ, this is hard choice. Although he likes Iron Man more, in this movie, Tony Stark wants to have all the superheroes unmask themselves, revealing their true identities to the world. BJ can't stand behind that decision, one that could potentially lead to disaster for any superhero. If BJ was a superhero he would want his secret identity kept hidden to protect the ones he loves. Also a mask hides his face, which everyone can appreciate. Therefore, he will be wearing Red White and Blue for this movie, siding with Captain America.  


It looks like BJ and I are going to war! I'll be siding with Tony Stark, Iron Man, for this film. He's proven that a hero can be unmasked and still serve his city as the hero they deserve. This mask-less mentality allows people to make a connection to the human side of any superhero they adore. It’s important for people to understand that despite being "super", these heroes still make mistakes. I'll be reppin’ my robot suit for this movie.  


What about you, are you siding with Iron Man or Captain America? What did you think of the movie?
