Nerds from The Atlantic like Captain America too

Including Ta-Nahesi Coates, winner of the National Book Award and writer of the current Black Panther comic. There's nothing earth-shaking in the Atlantic's Picking Sides in Captain America: Civil War, but it's a fun panel discussion, and it makes me happy to know that a real-deal intellectual like TNC also thinks "it was a really, really good movie."

  1. Great discussion. Like Coates, I really liked Civil War not only because it was good, but because it could have been so damned bad with all those heroes on screen. Hero mashups can suck and seem pointless (Batman v. Superman) if they don't have some sort of larger purpose for the fight and plausible motivations for the characters. Civil War did that well.
