As marketing continues to ramp up for next week’s Captain America: Civil War release, the studio has offered up another WHIH Newsfront video featuring Christine Everhart (Leslie Bibb) and political correspondent Will Adams (Al Madrigal).
In it, WHIH begins a debate about how the White House should handle The Avengers in the wake of multiple events that caused massive levels of destruction to major urban areas, including the destruction in New York (The Avengers), Sokovia (Avengers: Age of Ultron) and Washington D.C. (Captain America: Winter Soldier). It’s doing some heavy lifting, setting up the themes of Civil War.
“President Ellis was on hand to commemorate the massive clean-up effort in Washington D.C., following the destruction of the SHIELD headquarters,” Adams says. “And he made a point of singling out the heroic deeds of both Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson during the situation. The White House has always been very clear that those responsible for that incident have been neutralized, thanks to Mr. Rogers and his colleagues.”
The Sokovia Accords — the framework under which heroes will have to register in Civil War — may not have universal support of politicians in the U.S.
Watch the full video below, with mentions of SHIELD, General Thunderbolt Ross and more.
