Captain America: Civil War – AKA Avengers 2.5


We’ve known that the 3rd installment of the Captain America series is happening and will be called Civil War. We’re also aware it’ll feature the likes of Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye as well as introducing us to Black Panther and hopefully Spiderman into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

But Marvel Studios has confirmed that we’ll be seeing a lot more hero’s on the screen in Civil War.

Set for release in the United States on May 6, 2016, “Captain America: Civil War” is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo (Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Community”) from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (“Captain America: The Winter Solider,” Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”). The film returns Chris Evans (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron”) as the iconic Super Hero character Steve Rogers/Captain America along with Robert Downey Jr. (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Marvel’s “Iron Man 3”) as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Sebastian Stan (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Captain America: The First Avenger”) as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Paul Bettany (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Iron Man 3”) as The Vision, Jeremy Renner (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Marvel’s “The Avengers”) as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Don Cheadle (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Iron Man 3”) as Jim Rhodes/War Machine and Elizabeth Olsen (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Godzilla”) as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch.

After his debut in Marvel’s “Ant-Man” on July 17, 2015, Paul Rudd (“Ant-Man,” ”Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues”) will make his first appearance alongside the Avengers as Scott Lang/Ant-Man in “Captain America: Civil War.”

The film also includes outstanding additional cast, including Chadwick Boseman (“42,” “Get on Up”) as T’Challa/Black Panther, Emily VanCamp (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Revenge”) as Sharon Carter/Agent 13, Daniel Brühl (“Inglourious Basterds,” “Bourne Ultimatum”), Frank Grillo (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Warrior”) as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones, William Hurt (“A History of Violence,” Marvel’s “The Incredible Hulk”) as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross and Martin Freeman (“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”).  

“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.

I agree that this all looks confusing and difficult to make out who’s set to feature, so perhaps this will help:

Steve Rogers/Captain America
Tony Stark/Iron Man
Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow
Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier
Sam Wilson/Falcon
Victor Shade/The Vision
Clint Barton/Hawkeye
Jim Rhodes/War Machine
Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch
Scott Lang/Ant-Man
T’Challa/Black Panther
Sharon Carter/Agent 13
Brock Rumlow/Crossbones
Baron Helmut Zemo
General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross (William Hurt returning from Incredible Hulk)
Martin Freeman as ????

Yes Paul Rudd’s AntMan will also feature along with Vision who we’ve just been introduced to in Avengers Age of Ultron as well as Scarlet Witch.

What an incredible line up and such a tease for the incoming Avengers Infinity Wars Part 1 and 2.

No mention of Spiderman in the official article, but it’s been heavily rumoured that his debut into the MCU will take place in Civil War.

Get Hype!
