First ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Plot Details Revealed In Official Synopsis

Standard
Captain America: Civil War begins shooting in just two weeks, as the scheduled start date is April 1, exactly one month from the theatrical release of Avengers: Age of Ultron. This is significant since the events of that blockbuster will have a major bearing on the plot of Captain America: Civil War, which will deal with the fallout of the climactic battle in Age of Ultron.

 Along with the casting notice (which puts out a call for actors of
“many ethnicities” in the Atlanta area to serve as extras), the official
synopsis is revealing the first major plot details about the film, due
to hit theaters May 6, 2016. As expected, the film will be based on Mark
Millar’s Superhero Registration Act story arc from the comic books:

“Following the events of Age of Ultron, the collective
governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman
activity. This polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers, causing two
factions to side with Iron Man or Captain America, which causes an epic
battle between former allies.”

So it’s going to be Captain America vs. Iron Man, just like it is in
the comic books. I guess it makes sense since Marvel just recently answered the question of who the real boss of the Avengers is, albeit in sarcastic fashion. Even though Captain America: Civil War
is ostensibly a Captain America movie, it might as well be an Avengers
sequel, considering how many Marvel heroes are expected to appear. You
have Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America along with Robert
Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, but we’re also getting Scarlett
Johansson as Black Widow, Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Chadwick Boseman as
Black Panther, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier, and
Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. Daniel Bruhl will play the villain,
and while his character hasn’t been confirmed just yet, it’s assumed
he’ll play Baron Zemo. So yeah, it’s a pretty stacked cast overall.
Hell, even Spider-Man is expected to appear in this, which makes for a
nice little bit of reciprocal casting since Iron Man is expected to appear in Marvel’s upcoming Spider-Man reboot.
Basically, Marvel is looking to retain its crown as the most
comprehensive cinematic universe on film today. Or, at the very least,
the most awesome.
