UPDATED: It’s All Out War on Empire’s ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Cover
There were a lot of Captain America: Civil War fans who were waiting for another full trailer after the Super Bowl 50 commercial. That trailer has yet to arrive, but Empire Magazine has just debuted the cover for their Captain America: Civil War issue, which features a pretty rad new image of Cap and Iron Man going face-to-face.
Robert Downey, Jr. debuted the cover on Twitter and Facebook today:

The magazine itself won’t be available until February 25 and subscribers to Empire will get a variant cover that has yet to be revealed, but considering previous subscribers covers have focused on the villains (remember Joker’s cover for Suicide Squad), it’s possible that we could get our first official look at Baron Zemo and Crossbones.
UPDATE: OK, so no look at any of the villains on the new cover, but Empire did release the first official shot of Crossbones, plus a pretty cool new cover, both of which are included below.
UPDATE 2: Thanks to Empire, we also finally know who Sherlock and The Hobbit star Martin Freeman is playing in Civil War. Freeman is Everett Ross, “a stalwart in the Marvel comic books … traditionally the US government’s man in Wakanda. It’s a role that obviously brings Freeman into Black Panther’s (Chadwick Boseman) world and makes Freeman a safe bet to be get a broader role in the standalone Black Panther movie. In Civil War he’s part of the Joint Counter Terrorist Centre.” Thank you, Empire. And welcome to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Mr. Freeman. Hope you survive the experience!
Captain America: Civil War opens in theaters on May 6.
