UPDATED: Captain America: Civil War Trailer to Premiere Before Spectre in Russia
Will we see an official Captain America: Civil War trailer in just ten days? According to the Russian theater chain Cinema Park, the first trailer will accompany the new James Bond film, Spectre, starting on November 6.

Here's a slightly cleaned up Google translation of the announcement, via the theater's social media account on VK:

Opening quote
"Friends, we remind you that the official premiere of the trailer for the blockbuster 'The split Avengers' will be held November 6 and will be timed to coincide with the new James Bond film - '007: Spectre.' It remains exactly 10 days."
Closing quote

Does this mean that the trailer will accompany Spectre in the U.S.? It's difficult to say; the film opens in America on the same day, but it's already out in the U.K., and you would think that the trailer would be attached to the film across the board. But still, we'll probably be seeing the trailer soon either way, because once it airs in Russia, bootlegs will inevitably be released on the Internet, and historically Marvel has been conscientious about releasing official versions to pre-empt that (with the exception of Hydra leaking the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer).

UPDATE - 10/28/15 03:43 pm

According to Collider's sources, the first Civil War trailer will air alongside Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This does seem a little more likely, as Star Wars is also a Disney property, and it's also just more exciting that way. But the only concrete evidence so far is this enigmatic tweet from the Russo Brothers account that may or may not be fake:



The two side-by-side pictures are close-ups of a Star Wars poster and Captain America's uniform, but again, there's no telling whether this account is real. It hasn't been verified by Twitter, and James Gunn went on record saying that the Russos don't have an account, although the Russos themselves haven't yet confirmed or denied it. 

Also, are we really supposed to believe that the first trailer isn't coming out until December 18? That would be pretty late to see the first footage, especially since fans already saw clips from the film at D23. If we had to guess, we'd say that Disney will probably release the first teaser sometime soon, maybe next week, and then will release a second trailer alongside The Force Awakens.

Captain America: Civil War opens in theaters on May 6, 2016.
