Captain America and Iron Man might be coming to blows in “Captain America: Civil War,” but Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. have chosen to express their rivalry in a more kid-friendly way.
At the 29th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards, the two celebrity superheroes took the stage joking about their upcoming cinematic battle. The result was the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen.
As a gaggle of cheering children looked on, Evans and Downey Jr. whipped out their bedazzled thumbs — with Captain America and Iron Man covers respectively on each — and declared a Civil Thumb War.
Like the good sports that they are, no one won the match, and the whole thing ended in laughter — instead of tears — like we hope the movie will.
The latest trailer teased much more action than the short thumb brawl, and the possible death of a beloved member of the Avengers team. It also teased the long awaited appearance of Spiderman.
“Captain America: Civil War” hits theaters May 6, 2016.
