The recent Marvel movie, Captain America: Civil War (2016) pitted super heroes against one another as they struggled to balance long-time friendships with passionately held political beliefs. Stuffed with an overwhelming jumble of heroes, this movie was loosely based on the iconic comic series by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven. Millar had once famously explained that this expansive adventure was a way “to play with all the toys in the toy box.”
This feature film will be previewed at Auburn Public Theater on Thursday July 5 at 7 p.m. by a vintage Captain America cartoon, showcasing the first time that many of these Marvel heroes appeared onscreen. The cartoon also utilized many of Captain America co-creator Jack Kirby’s original illustrations.
