Black Widow, Hawkeye tussle in Captain America: Civil War international trailer

As it dawns on audiences just how boring a clash of DC titans can be, Marvel has released the international trailer for its own superpowered-infighting flick, Captain America: Civil War. The new preview runs on the same road paved by previous trailers—namely, the homeland security conflict that pits tech whiz Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) against dental wonder Steve Rogers (Chris Evans). We recently learned whose side Spider-Man is on, but here we get a glimpse at how the strife will affect that most critical of Avengers friendships, that of Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). She wonders whether they’ll be friends once the dust settles; he reassures her that they will, so long as she takes it easy on him. (Classic Hawkeye.) And hey, maybe Hawkeye’s prominence in the international trailer means his solo series would work overseas.

Captain America: Civil War hits theaters May 6.
