As we enter the homestretch before the release of Captain America: Civil War, Marvel released their latest WHIH Newsfront video as part of their viral marketing for the upcoming film. During this video anchors, Christine Everhart (Leslie Bibb) and Will Adams (Al Madrigal) continue to discuss the controversy surrounding the Avengers. The two anchors interview President Ellis (William Sadler) where they discuss the Avengers and the controversy that surrounds them based on the events of past MCU films of not only costs related to repairing infrastructure but the human cost as well. Ellis names Thaddeus ‘Thunderbolt’ Ross (William Hurt) as his new Secretary of State as he will deal with them.
A few Easter Eggs scroll through the bottom ticker during the video. Stephen Strange is mentioned, Bruce Banner is still missing, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s ACTU is mentioned, Trevor Slattery is writing a book about being ‘The Mandarin’ imposter, benefit concerts for Sokovia to raise money for the nation, new research Abraham Erskine had is recently discovered, and the lottery is up to 1 billion dollars.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.”
Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
