Jimmy Kimmel gives us a 2016-themed ‘Captain America’ trailer, and it’s beautiful

The Captain America: Civil War trailers and clips we’re getting are preparing us for a superhero battle of epic proportions, but for some of the people paying attention, the battle is all too familiar. It’s one that plays out on cable TV everyday.

Billionaire versus idealist, a disagreement over the role of government, two men who were once friends. Granted, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders might not agree on much of anything—and they probably won’t face each other in the general election—but boy, would we pay to see that fight.

Bringing Hillary Clinton in as Cap would’ve worked better for the former friends’ narrative, but she still makes a delightful cameo, while Ben Carson webs his way into the movie just like in real life. But who is Sanders’s Bucky?  

The election-themed parody is part of Civil War week on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where fans will get tons of Captain America interviews and maybe some real clips too. The superheroes may want to beat each other to a pulp, but the camaraderie between castmates is real, as Team Cap makes its case to the fans.

#TeamCast, anyone?
