Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige on Saturday unveiled a new trailer of the upcoming Captain America: Civil War at Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim.

Aside from getting a first exclusive glimpse of the new Captain America: Civil War, attendees of the D23 expo were also treated with the presence of Stars Chris Evans (Steve Evans/Captain America) and Anthony Mackie (Falcon/Sam Wilson) who flew straight from Germany where they are in the final week of shooting the movie, various media reported.

Evans told the crowd, "It's so good. I love it," during the presentation of the new footage that sent the crowd cheering wildly, said the Mirror.

The short footage showed Captain America, Falcon and Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) engaged in a hands-on battle against Frank Grillo's Crossbones in a crowded square. Crossbones is a powerful enemy with a powerful punch, reported AP. Captain America's team also include Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff), while Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downy Jr.) also have War Machine/Col. James Rupert "Rhodey" Rhodes (Don Cheadle).

Crossbones even hinted to Captain America that his former friend, Bucky/The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), still have memory of him.  "He remembered you, you know - your pal, your buddy, your Bucky," Crossbones tells Cap.

The footage also highlights the growing rift between Iron Man and Captain America that divided the Avengers team and eventually pitting the world's superheroes against each other.

"It's culmination of everything that has come before in the cinematic universe," said Feige, who added that Captain America: Civil War, would hit the screens on May 6, 2016 and kicks off Marvel's "Phase Three."

The ideological rift between Captain America on one side and Iron Man on the other, was triggered by a speck delivered by William Hurt's General "Thunderbolt" Ross, who tells Steve, "The world owes you an unpayable debt - a great many people see you as a hero, but there are some who prefer the word vigilante. People are afraid," Variety reported.

To which Evans responded, "This job, you try to save as many as you can. Sometimes that doesn't mean everyone."

Apparently, Tony Stark wanted the superheroes to have more accountability for their actions but Capt. Steve Roger seems to be unwilling to compromise but is more than willing to work outside the government system after the S.H.I.E.L.D.'s betrayal in Captain America: Winter Soldier. Stark can be heard telling Captain America, "Sometimes I wanna punch you in your perfect teeth." And added, "We have no boundaries, we're no better than the bad guys."

Captain America: Civil War also stars Martin Freeman, Paul Bettany (whose Vision was seen wearing a suit in the footage instead of his caped ensemble from Avengers: Age of Ultron), Emily VanCamp, and many other superheroes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
