We know, you’re still stuck on Avengers 2, us too. Less than a week after the theatrical release of the Marvel Studios blockbuster cast details on the third installment in the Captain America franchise, “Civil War”, has surfaced — and it’s pretty exciting.
Chris Evans of course will reprise the role of “Captain America/Steve Rogers”, with fellow Avengers veterans Robery Downey Jr. as “Iron Man/Tony Starks”, Scarlett Johansson as “Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff”, Paul Bettany as “The Vision” and Jeremy Renner as “Clint Barton/Hawkeye”. Don Cheadle will return from the Iron Man franchise as “Jim Rhodes/War Machine”, Elizabeth Olsen from Avengers 2 as “Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch”, as well as Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie returning to the Captain America series as “Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier” and “Sam Wilson/Falcon” respectively.
So Civil War will pretty much will look like a Marvel Cinematic Universe family reunion, with the addition of some new faces. The film will introduce Chadwick Boseman as “T’Challa/Black Panter” to the Marvel Cinematic Universe before his own feature film premieres on July 6, 2018. Additionally, Daniel Brühl will join the cast as supervillain “Baron Helmut Zemo”. Martin Freeman (The Hobbit) will make his MCU debut for a yet-to-be-announced role. It was also reported that the “new” Peter Parker/Spider-Man would debut in the film, though he was omitted from the cast list (likely because they haven’t announced who would play the role yet).
Captain America: Civil War will draw from the Marvel Comics series of the same name, and where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off. An international incident which involves Cap’s new team of Avengers causes collateral damage, which inevitably forces government sanctions on superheroes to enforce a system of accountability, as well as a leg of the government ordered to decide when assistance from the superheroes will be needed. This inevitably splits the Avengers team down the middle, with some members siding with the government and others against the new policies, all the while a new, powerful villain intends to end the world (of course). Suffice it to say we’re looking at yet another Spring blockbuster when Captain America: Civil War drops May 6, 2016.
