What’s there left to say about Captain America: Civil War that hasn’t already been said? Sure, we could talk all day about how Marvel’s latest movie or wax lyrical about those arms that , but Captain America: Civil War is basically the perfect film, isn’t it?
While Cap’s latest solo outing won Movie Pilot polls for both and , the folks over at ‘How It Should Have Ended’ (HISHE) have managed to poke holes in the Russo Brothers admittedly fantastic stab at the superhero genre.
The clash between Team Cap and Team Iron was exhilarating and heartbreaking in equal measure, as old friends fought over the Sokovia Accords, culminating in one final throw-down at an evacuated airport. However, it turns out that these former allies could have sorted out their beef a lot sooner and with far less violence, if only they had just followed the advice of the people at HISHE.
The Vision really needs to up his game
Before Captain America: Civil War was released, fans were worried that the Vision’s immense power would tip the scales in favor of Team Iron Man, but for the majority of the film, the android chose to not intervene in fights or even failed to help at crucial moments.
Imagine how easily the Vision could have taken down Crossbones if he had just appeared at the start of the film?
Why didn’t the Sokovia Accords just single out Iron Man?
General Ross condemns the Avengers for the potentially destructive consequences of their actions, leading them to immediately point out how the government tried to nuke New York City to end the Chitauri invasion earlier in the franchise. And wasn’t it just Tony who created Ultron, the only real threat directly caused by the Avengers actions?
Spider-Man awkwardly avoids his most famous catchprase
Tom Holland’s fresh take on Spider-Man was undoubtedly one of the film’s highlights, but it sure felt strange when Peter Parker clumsily explained the reasons why he chose to fight crime in the first place, deliberately avoiding the old adage, “With great power, comes great responsibility.”
Three easier ways to end the final conflict between Iron Man and Captain America
1) Bucky and Iron Man could just kiss and make up. Not literally, or we could end up looking at a very different kind of movie.
2) Iron Man could go all American Psycho and stop Bucky from ever buying those goddamn plums.
3) Bucky could just sing himself a little tune and put an end to all of this nonsense, once and for all.
Of course, the HISHE clip ends with another visit to the Super Cafe, where Batman encourages a good old fashioned superhero fight, Spidey freaks out about Tony’s infatuation with Aunt May and Ant-Man sees something he’ll never forget, no matter how hard he tries.
What’s most impressive with the HISHE series is how even fans of the movies that are made fun of can appreciate the jokes at hand.

Unless Captain America somehow pops up for , the next time we’ll see the Star-Spangled Avenger will be in Avengers: Infinity War Pt 1, which is scheduled for release on May 4, 2018.

The day someone green-lights a Marvel Zombies Ghibli film directed by Xavier Dolan is the day I will be happy. Any day now…
