By the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron the cracks in the foundation of the team will start to show paving the way for next years epic conclusion to the Captain America trilogy which will see the First Avenger stand against the country and the world he swore to protect, while fighting for the freedom his country idolises. Conversely this will put him at odds with the principals held by his Avenger team-mate Tony Stark aka Iron Man. The inevitable overflow of testosterone will result in epic fight sequences between the two comic book icons, along with supporting characters Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and the as-of-yet uncast recent addition of Marvels premier superhero Spider-Man. The recently released official synopsis for the movie, elaborates...
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.
While the above synopsis does mirror that seen in the comic book original, written by comic book legend Mark Millar, the version of Civil War we will see on the big screen will differ somewhat from that seen in the comic book. The first key difference will be the act passed by worlds governments; in the comic book the 'superhuman registration act' require superheroes to register their real identity, whereas the movies version of the act will be policing the actions of superheroes. Another obvious change will centre around the inclusion of Spider-Man whom in the comic book reveaed his identity to the world. With Captain America: Civil War being the debut for an all new, rebooted Spider-Man it is highly unlikely the young web-slinger will do the same.
The question does remain however; how far will the repurcussions of the Civil War ripple throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Will our heroes still be at each others thoats when Thanos turns his attentions to Earth?
Filming for Captain America: Civil War begins next month on April 1st!
