Marvel has released an extended version of the Captain America: Civil War clip that premiered Monday night during Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The clip in question shows Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) being brought into the Team Cap fold and meeting Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) for the first time, with hilarious results.

In fact, Scott Lang is so star-struck (which sooo reminds me of Clark Gregg's Agent Coulson) that he shakes Cap's hand longer than necessary, just as he becomes fully aware of it: "I'm shaking your hand too long." It gets funnier when — in a scene that’s an obvious callback to the one from The First Avenger where Peggy (Hayley Atwell) reached out to touch Steve’s chest right after his transformation from Skinny Steve to super-buff Super Soldier Steve — Scott gets all handsy with our star-spangled hero!

Basically, Scott Lang is ALL OF US.


Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Captain America: Civil War will divide our loyalties between Team Cap and Team Iron on May 6. Which side will you pick?
