After the recent release and rampant success of “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” it’s clear that Marvel is still trucking along with its movie theater domination. Now the next big overarching film set in the Universe has an incredible new synopsis that was recently made available.
The film is “Captain America: Civil War.” It has been reported on before in the Tennessee Star Journal, but now with more information coming out. It seems that the movie bearing the title character is going to be less a “Captain America” movie and more of an extra “Avengers” film. The following is the press release that was let out earlier in the week:
Set for release in the United States on May 6, 2016, Captain America: Civil War is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. The film returns Chris Evans as the iconic Super Hero character Steve Rogers/Captain America along with Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Don Cheadle as Jim Rhodes/War Machine and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch.
After his debut in Marvel’s Ant-Man on July 17, 2015, Paul Rudd 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 as T’Challa/Black Panther, Emily Van Camp as Sharon Carter/Agent 13, Daniel Brühl, Frank Grillo as Brock Rumlow/ Crossbones, William Hurt as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross and Martin Freeman.
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.
As we can see, there is a lot that the studio is working with for this film. It’s almost getting to the point where people are wondering when the bubble will burst and whether there will be too much on the screen at once. Some say that it already has happened with “Age of Ultron.” However, if anyone has ever looked into the comic book “Civil War” that the next “Captain America” film is based on, it could mean that there may be a “thinning out” of characters in the near future.
