Editor's Pick

Target is promoting its super hero gear for Marvel's upcoming "Captain America: Civil War" with a colorful, fun spot featuring a cute mini Captain America in a futuristic school playground.

The spot, by 72andSunny, follows a group of friends suited up as different superheroes -- Black Panther, Falcon, War Machine, Spider-Man, Winter Soldier, Black Widow, Captain America and Iron Man -- in a game of tag. In a nice touch, the elusive Iron Man is finally revealed to be a little girl, as the masks are ripped off and it's back to the (Target-themed) school after recess. Augustus Punch at the appropriately named Superprime Films directed.
