Marvel Fixes Big Winter Soldier Spoiler In New Japanese Trailer

Spoilers follow for Captain America: Civil War.

Marvel recently released a new Japanese Captain America: Civil War trailer (watch above) which features a change to the Winter Soldier.

The earlier normal version of the trailer seemed to reveal a big spoiler with Winter Soldier minus his arm in the fight against Iron Man:

Now the new Japanese trailer has been edited to put the arm back:

We can speculate the original trailer may have simply forgotten to add the CGI to Winter Soldier's arm, or that they are trying to hide the mistake of the spoiler reveal. Or is there something more to it, that the ripping off of Winter Soldier's arm is too graphic for Japanese and/or some international audiences?

That said, with the two trailers revealing two seemingly different fates for the Winter Soldier, it's now unknown to us what exactly happens.

"Captain America: Civil War" has  a May 6, 2016 release date directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.


Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
