Big Captain America: Civil War Spoiler Everyone Missed; Star Wars Easter Egg Revealed
Spoilers follow for Captain America: Civil War.
While everyone has been focused on Spider-Man in the new Captain America: Civil War trailer, a really BIG spoiler is also featured in the footage.
We've all seen the epic battle between Cap, Bucky and Iron Man from the previous trailer (watch a slow-mo version below). This trailer gives us a bit more footage from the battle and a MAJOR SPOILER.
An eagle-eyed user on the iMDB forums (via reddit) apparently used a video edit program to enhance the Captain America: Civil War footage of the fight between Captain America and Iron Man. If you take a close look, you see The Winter Soldier lying on the ground -- minus his bionic arm!
Obviously we can speculate from the image that Iron Man rips off Bucky's arm, but perhaps the bigger question is whether or not The Winter Soldier survives!
As Mad_Rascal notes, it look as if Feige is "carrying on the tradition of cutting off someone's arm as a nod to Star Wars." All the latest Marvel movies feature someone getting their arm/hand cut off in some way or another, which is a homage to Luke and Darth Vader in Empire Strikes Back.

"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.
