Leading up to one of the biggest events in the MCU, each side appears to have been revealed!
In the comic books, Civil War is one of those big events that changes the scope of things to come (especially with some of the events that come next but I won’t spoil that…just in case). The way it’s looking, the MCU Civil War will have a similar impact on the future of the cinematic universe that we’ve come to love and admire. We all know that Tony Stark aka Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr., and Steve Rogers aka Captain America, played by Chris Evans, will be squaring off against each other. But where will the other heroes go? Who will line up with who?
According to Heroic Hollywood and their sources, the sides have been revealed and…it’s not too surprising with how we’ve seen things begin to shake out. Here’s the rumored line up:
Team Captain America
- Captain America
- Scarlet Witch
- The Winter Soldier
Team Iron Man
- Iron Man
- The Vision
- Black Widow
- War Machine
President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige has already confirmed that Black Panther has his own agenda and will be neutral to everything going on. This makes sense since when looking at the events of Age of Ultron, we know that Wakanda’s Vibranium played a large role and T’Challa will look to take care of some things in the process.
Captain America: Civil War is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, and stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Elizabeth Olsen, and Paul Rudd.
“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.”
