I just want to take the MCU fandom by the face and squish their little cheeks and whisper,
“Everything that’s wrong with the MCU can be resolved by acknowledging the writing is absolute shit.”
You’re the fandom, my loves. You’re supposed to be fixing the canon, not bickering over the secret meaning of the Sokovia Awards and why Tony was more correct than Steve. Look. The Sokovia Awards in Civil War are like Khan in the Star Trek reboot. Neither of them were set up properly.
I don’t know the comic books for shit but I do know the MCU, and I know writing, and I know that the creators of the MCU have not put in the time or effort to set up something as monumental as Civil War. Just like Star Trek reboot didn’t put in the work to make Kirk’s “death” mean shit. That little shit deserved to die. Tony and Steve had been aching for a bare knuckle fight since the moment they met. Civil War is a steaming pile of bullshit that justifies the two more popular heroes of the MCU getting to fight one another with dramatic background music and pretty lighting.
Primarily, one assumes, to sell movie tickets.
And the kicker is, the movie could have opened with Steve and Tony fighting and it would have literally worked exactly the same.
