avengers

Oh how our geeky senses are trembling! With the release of the action-packed new Captain America film Civil War just a few days away *eeeeeep!*, Truffle Towers is a buzz with anticipation of the epic new addition to our already quickly growing superhero movie faves and it’s not hard to see why.

Packed with more superheroes than a kid’s toy box, this amazing new adventure is sure to feed even the most hungry hero lover out there with amazing special effects, combat and some good old fashioned hero cheesiness. What’s not to love right?

So what’s it all about?

This big new adventure finds Captain America leading an Avengers team that includes Iron Man, Black Widow, Falcon, Winter Soldier, War Machine, Hawkeye, Black Panther, Scarlet Witch, Ant-Man and Spider-Man. Following a major attack which results in huge collateral damage and the loss of civilian lives, political pressure mounts as the government seeks more accountability and regulation on their actions.
This sparks a divide in the Avengers with The Captain seeking to remain free from such control and the usually wayward rogue Iron Man who believes the team should work with the officials. Members of the team pick a side and are forced to fight for what they believe. That can only go well…

See for yourself! Take a peep at this official trailer for a glimpse at the action….

………..

.
Pretty epic huh! Will they sort their differences and what will this mean for The Avengers role in society? Well….a trip to the movies to catch this should tell you all.

So are YOU ready?

With more superheroes on the big screen than ever before, there are plenty more reasons each year to show your love for some of the most iconic comic book legends which is just our speciality! Always expanding our range of official Superhero TShirts, we’re pretty set for our trip to the pictures and if anything are spoilt for choice!
