With a title like Captain America: Civil War, heroes that were once allies are now enemies fighting for a cause. In this case, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) believes that the Avengers have put the world through enough with their vigilante actions and unchecked heroics, and supports a new initiative where a governing body would determine when they would deploy the heroes. However, Captain America (Chris Evans) believes in the opposite. Then there is the fact that his friend, the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) has been discovered, and there are governments who want him to stand trial for his crimes. A lot will happen that will force these two to go to battle against each other, and now, a new set of released posters will give us an idea of who is for a government oversight and who is against it.
Check out the six new character posters below.
Joining Captain America and Winter Soldier will be Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd). We’ve already seen glimpses of Cap’s roster through various pieces of concept art and a couple of trailers. However, this is only a view of one side of their face. So we won’t get to see their new suits for a while. And seeing that these heroes are facing in one direction, it’s very likely that Iron Man’s roster will face the opposite. But what will their tagline be?
Captain America: Civil War also stars also stars Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Chadwick Boseman, Emily VanCamp, Frank Grillo, William Hurt, Martin Freeman, Daniel Brühl, and Paul Bettany. It opens in theaters on May 6, 2016.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
