After 3 years in the making Captain America: Civil War release date is fast approaching. 6th of May 2016 can’t come quick enough! All the trailers, teasers, interview and speculations are driving us crazy!
So what we know about the plot is that our beloved heroes will end up on different sides of the playing field that is government politics. Similar to what is happening in the X Men movies, people are becoming afraid of superheroes and the disastrous events that seem to find them. There is a motion put forward by the government of regulating people with powers. This will split the Avengers into Team Captain America and Team Iron Man and bring to the surface the age old problem of safety at the cost of civil liberties and freedom.
Here are the members of the two teams as we have them now. But that doesn’t mean this will be the final number.
Team Captain America:
Steve Rodgers The Captain himself fighting for civil liberty.
Bucky Barnes AKA Winter Soldier: It seems that he has fully recovered from all that H.Y.D.R.A. did to him and is back on the side of his childhood friend.
Clint Barton AKA Hawkeye: This one is very puzzling as it seems his long-term friendship with Natasha Romanoff AKA Black Widow is in jeopardy.
Sam Wilson AKA Falcon: The only team member capable of flight.
Sharon Carter: The daughter of Peggy Carter following in her mother’s footsteps and fighting alongside Rodgers.
Scott Lang AKA Ant-Man: As we have seen before he went to prison playing modern day Robin Hood, so it is not a stretch of the imagination to see him following The Captain.
Team Iron Man:
Tony Stark AKA Iron Man fighting for regulation and boundaries.
Colonel James Rhodes AKA War Machine: No surprise at his choice to stand with Stark.
Natasha Romanoff AKA Black Widow: This one however is very surprising as she has huge history with Barton and is a good friend of Rogers.
T’Challa AKA Black Panther: This is the first appearance of the chieftain of Wakanda in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Vision: He seems to believe that registering superheroes will serve his ultimate goal – safety of humanity.
Spider-Man: Probably the most exciting new addition to MCU joins his new friend Stark on his mission.
We know that this movie will lead into Thor: Ragnarok, but the Asgardian himself won’t be making an appearance. The jury is still out on Hulk, but personally I have a feeling he will stay this one out.
