The Captain America: Civil War rivalry just got personal. As the release date nears for the superhero showdown pitting Chris Evans’ patriotic protagonist against former friend Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), the film’s stars are taking to social media to stump for support with individualized video messages.
The official Civil War Twitter account has asked fans to choose sides by tweeting “#TeamCap” or “#TeamIronMan,” and those who oblige are being treated to customized — well, semi-customized — replies from the likes of Evans, Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes) and more.
“Alex, good choice,” Stan says in one such message. “Welcome to the best team there ever was, Team Cap. You’re the man.”
“Amanda, thank you so much for joining Team Cap, because we’re going to win,” Mackie coos in another.
Not all the messages are welcoming, though. Some feature admonishments from the other side. “Thomas, Team Cap?” Boseman chides. “Were you having a bad day or something? Do you want to come back and do this some other time when you’re in a better mood? … It’s the wrong decision.”
