Robert Downey, Jr. and Chris Evans to Appear on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ With a Big ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Surprise

Are you guys starting to get a little sick of all the Star Wars ads, commercials, clips and appearances? Well, we’ve got some good news for you: it’s time to start getting excited about the next Marvel movie. Captain America: Civil War may be seven months away, but the trailer is set to debut with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Who can wait until December 18 though? Stars Robert Downey, Jr. and Chris Evans will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! tonight to maybe, possibly debut the Captain America: Civil War trailer.

Kimmel announced the news on his Twitter feed, only teasing that the two stars would have a “BIG Civil War surprise.”

Considering Disney likes to debut all of its trailers on its many associated properties (Star Wars: The Force Awakens on ESPN, Avengers: Age of Ultron on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) it certainly makes sense that the Downey and Evans would be appearing not just to make idle chit-chat, but to show off the Captain America: Civil War trailer that will be in theaters in a few weeks.

If this seems remarkably low-key for a big Marvel trailer debut, remember the last time they tried a major lead-up to a Marvel trailer on ABC it leaked online a day early. Perhaps they’re trying to keep this a little more secret in hopes of preserving the surprise.

We’ll all know for sure later tonight. Stay tuned for more!

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