'How It Should Have Ended' Video Points Out the Big Flaw in Captain America: Civil War
Captain America: Civil War was a runaway success. The critics loved it, the fans loved it, and it made a ton of money at the box office. Succeeding where other superhero team-up movies failed, Civil War did a good job at keeping it's central plot focused, despite the mind-boggling number of characters involved. It also featured some of the best action sequences ever to grace the comicbook movie genre. That being said, the movie was far from perfect and there was one aspect in particular that felt a little odd.

After seemingly calling a truce on their conflict, Iron Man and Captain America both set about following the breadcrumbs left by the villainous Baron Zemo. After Zemo falls into the famous Hollywood villain trap of conveniently revealing his dastardly plan to his prey, you would think that a smart chap like Tony Stark would be able to rise above what Zemo has in store. When Stark learns that it was a brain-washed Bucky who killed his parents, he's unable to recognize the crucial 'brain-washed' part of the story, and the conflict between the group rises to dangerous new levels. It all felt like escalation for escalation's sake, and a new video from the 'How it Should Have Ended' team points that fact out with their usual comedic style.

The video, which also proves that nobody in their right mind would really want to be a part of Team Iron Man, features a nice bit of Marvel/DC crossover love. Why can't we all just get along?
