This time around it’s once again Iron Man vs Cap…tain Marvel?!? And Captain America is on Iron Man’s side!?! This really is All-New and All Different!

Civil War II will be released this June, a month after the loose adaptation of the original series hits the big screen in Captain America: Civil War.  The premise to me sounds like a super hero version of Minority Report:

See the full postcard after the cut.
