One of my favorite parts of a Marvel movie coming to home release, aside from revisiting the movie over and over, is the gag reel. When you’ve got talented, likable, and downright hilarious actors like the ones the MCU has nabbed, it’s great fun to watch them bounce off each other, flub up their lines, and have the time of their lives. ‘Captain America: Civil War’ is the next Marvel movie to be released on Blu-ray/digital HD, and to pass the time before it’s available to own, a clip of the film’s gag reel has been released. This isn’t the entire gag reel – this clip runs about a minute long – but it should be enough to provide plentiful giggles and smiles.
Even with ‘Captain America: Civil War’ being one of the more serious entries in the MCU, it’s nice to see the actors still got their moments of fun and levity. Perhaps the highlight of this clip is seeing Paul Bettany’s normally stone-faced Vision get goofy. And now, we wait for the rest of the gag reel. I’m hoping we get some silly Spidey action.
And in case this bucket of laughs isn’t enough for you, here’s the full list of special features that will come with the film.
