We’ve crossed the halfway mark on our Marvel Mondays journey with “Captain America: Civil War” (2016), one of those epic Russo brothers extravaganzas that bring together a ton of superheroes in thrilling and dizzying ways. Christy and Nicolas talk about how Cap and Tony take different stances than you might expect in response to the oversight of the Sokovia Accords, the introduction of Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther and Tom Holland as Spider-Man, the fun of assembling the teams (and the confusion of remembering who’s on whose side), and those incredible action sequences. We also debate who we agree with philosophically, and explore the notion of whether it’s better to ask for forgiveness vs. permission with another hypothetical about sour gummy worms. We’re loving doing these, so thanks so much for joining us on our Breakfast All Day spinoff.
