So when I watch Civil War I'm seeing their previous choices playing out. How do you think it's just being told to you?


Because it is all posturing and surface level. Neither of those characters behave or are affected by this 'conflict' in a substantial way. They do not change or evolve. They play out the action of conflict but it does not resonate on a character level. The end of the movie is exactly the same as the beginning.

I think I see what you're saying and suspect you may be right... right up until Cap drops the shields and leaves Tony wallowing in his failure.

Cap doesn't just spring his squad from jail but realizes he didn't live up to his own principles and apologizes to Tony about him knowing about Tony's parents. Tony meanwhile is clearly licking his wounds, a thing he's not prone to do.

Too little too late, perhaps. I'd have to ponder your point more.
