As they’ve often done when it comes to the Marvel universe, Audi have yet again set themselves up on a date with a couple of iconic heroes.
Technically speaking, the video itself depicts an Audi Q7 spot, packing a little bit of humor to go with plenty of action – most of which we already know from the trailers.
We do however get to see more of the chase sequence between Bucky, Black Panther and Cap, with the latter taking the reigns of what we assume is a Shield-employed Q7.
Another thing that’s interesting is that all the Audi SUVs driven in this clip are SQ7 models, which really reflects well on both Marvel’s and Shield’s budgets – with this one being of course hypothetical. It seems like they’ve bounced back rather nicely after losing so many Helicarriers in recent movies.
All in all, this clip might just leave you wanting more – and by that, we mean to see how the chase between these three amazing characters finally concludes. Also, Audi USA has announced that alongside the SQ7, the R8 V10 plus and all-new A4 will show up in the movie, as will the A7 Sportback and the Prologue concept.
“Even as the mighty Avengers break into Civil War, their affinity for best-in class, high performance and state of the art technology in their vehicles ties them together,” said Loren Angelo, Audi USA marketing exec. “Audi is excited to be a mainstay for the Marvel franchise and to support their cast of Super Heroes with a fleet of superior Audi vehicles.”
As previously stated, the SQ7 will have Captain America behind the wheel at one point, while the R8 V10 plus Coupe will of course be driven by Tony Stark (Iron Man). Chadwick Boseman’s character, Black Panther/T’Challa will be seen alongside the Prologue concept, whereas Agent 13 and Baron Zemo will sport the all-new A4 and A7 Sportback respectively.
“We’re always trying to ride the line in these movies between something that is set in our real, present day world, but at the same time feels special and forward thinking – just a little out of reach,” added co-director Anthony Russo. “So to be able to work with a company like Audi and have access to their current models and their most advanced designs, it helps us strike that right balance between real world and the future.”
Captain America: Civil War will be released in the US on May 6, 2016.
