  • 17th December 2015 - Official 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.

  • 2nd December 2015 - First Look at Black Panther + EW Magazine Cover
    As for fighting style, Black Panther has a unique amalgam of moves. “There are some animal forms, but not just cat. He could be a snake, or various different styles. Obviously there’s an opportunity to do some capoeira,” the Brazilian martial art that combines fighting with dance, Boseman says.

    Part of Panther’s power is not just brute strength, but thinking ahead. “The key with T’Challa is to keep everybody on their toes. It’s to do the thing that is surprising, that you wouldn’t expect. So there’s a lot of agility and a lot of, like, ‘Why did he do that? Oh now I know why he did that. He was gonna come over here after he did that.’ I wouldn’t say he’s a ninja, but he does employ some of those aspects as well.”

    Panther’s retractable claws are also made of vibranium — and since Cap’s shield is also forged from the substance: Who wins in a fight?

    The Russo brothers have a simple answer for that: “We shall see,” Joe says.

  • 22nd July - Original Draft Included The Wasp
    So while we are expected to see Paul Rudd back as Ant-Man in Captain America: Civil War, don’t expect to see Evangeline Lilly as The Wasp in that film. Feige admits that the character was originally written into the Civil War screenplay:

    “She was included in early versions of Civil War but there are so many characters in Civil War that we didn’t want to do her a disservice, like she flies in, ‘I’ve got the costume now’, and she flies out. With Ant-Man, and I’m not saying thats what Ant-Man does in the movie, but we already know him, we’ve already seen him. We haven’t seen her as Wasp and we don’t want to rob the opportunity of seeing her in the outfit for at least almost the first time, and seeing her dynamic with Scott in a way it could play out, so we’re saving it. But its going to be in Phase three for sure.”

    So we will see Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) in action as The Wasp by May 3rd 2019, which is the conclusion of Marvel’s Phase three in The Avengers: Infinity War – Part II.

  • 21st July 2015 - Martin Freeman gives hints about his role
    Thanks to LovelyParisian for the heads up.

    "It looks a little bit like he’s playing one game when actually he’s playing another," the actor says during an interview.

    The identity of Martin Freeman's character in next year's Captain America: Civil War remains a secret, but the Sherlockand Fargo actor was willing to drop some hints as to his new identity in a recent interview.

    "He works for the American government," Freeman told Italian site BadTaste.It during a recent appearance at the Giffoni Film Festival. "He works in conjunction with the super heroes, and certain agencies that help to tame the super heroes’ power, I suppose. So you’re not quite sure which side he’s on. It looks a little bit like he’s playing one game when actually he’s playing another."

  • 8th July 2015 - Black Panther Confirmed To Remain Neutral
    Thanks to LovelyParisian for the heads up.

    SHH: You’ve already announced a “Black Panther” movie and he’s going to be introduced in “Civil War” but are you going to try to do more movies like “Ant-Man” or even “Thor” where you’re introducing the character in their own solo movie, or will you continue to play with introducing the characters in an earlier movie?

    Feige: It always varies, it really does. It always depends on how the timing works out. It depends on what stories we want to tell. In the case of “Civil War,” we needed a third party, we needed a character who wasn’t on either Captain America or Iron Man’s side, which is why we went, “You know what? We’re doing a Black Panther movie, but it would actually be smart to have him fill this role we need in Civil War and introduce him here first.” So it always just depends on the story and the way we want to tell the story.

  • 26th June 2015 - Kevin Feige Confirms Spider-Man's Appearance in Civil War
    Spider-Man will join the likes of Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, and other familiar Avengers onscreen next year during his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Captain America: Civil War.

    Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige confirmed Spidey's appearance and shared new information about the upcoming standalone Spider-Man film. Holland is expected "immediately" on the Atlanta set of Civil War.

    "Well, we're producing it for Sony. It's exciting, and we're treating it like we treat all of our films," Feige said. "To try to make the best version now of Spider-Man and a version of Spider-Man that inhabits this universe that we've created. We're in lockstep with [Sony Motion Picture Group chairman] Tom Rothman and [producer] Amy Pascal at every turn.”

    Feige then added that part of the agreement made between Sony and Marvel would allow for some of the MCU characters to appear in future Spider-Man films. He did not, however, go into any story specifics or discuss which characters might be featured.

    Additionally, Feige spoke about the upcoming Black Panther and Captain Marvel movies, voicing his hopes to have directors attached to the projects by the end of the summer. He spoke to the hope of bringing in minority directors to better represent and portray the on-screen characters.

    "It's an issue across the industry, for sure," he said of the lack of female and directors of color in Hollywood. "And the issue is, we need to find the best director for any given movie. And that's really where we always start. If diversity is part of that, it's great. It's important. You will start to see things across the industry as a whole change as more filmmakers come up through the ranks and become part of making movies like this."

    Feige then confirmed Selma director Ava DuVernay had been among many of the directors they've met with to discuss the possibility of helming Black Panther: "We've met with her for sure. We've met with a number of people for a number of movies. She has been one of them."

  • 3rd June 2015 - Samuel L. Jackson Not Returning
    On the Marvel side of things, we know pretty much every character under the sun is coming back for Captain America: Civil War. However, notably absent from the lineup is Nick Fury, who according to Jackson was originally supposed to show up in that film. "I was surprised I wasn't in Civil War, because the Russo Brothers told me I was," he said. "I don't know what's going on."

    We know that Jackson still has two Marvel movies left in his contract, but the actor confessed he has "no idea" which two.

  • 21st May 2015 - Mark Ruffalo to Appear?
    The Hulk’s fate in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a matter of discussion as of late ever since Mark Ruffalo revealed the studio’s difficulty in creating a Hulk solo film. While fans ponder which film Hulk may appear next after “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Ruffalo recently teased his character’s return in “Captain America: Civil War.”

    Mark Ruffalo sent a rather cryptic post on his Twitter page about “Captain America: Civil War.” The actor shared a photo of the movie’s logo and captioned it, “the Marvel family gets just a little bit bigger. @captainamerica #CivilWar.” He linked his post to his Tumblr page, which in turn also revealed an interesting statement that probably hinted his return as The Hulk in the sequel. The actor captioned the same movie logo with, “Welcome to the wild party! Looking forward to this amazing cast.”

    Ruffalo’s Twitter post has since received over one thousand six hundred likes and over one thousand two hundred retweets. Other Twitter users supposed the actor’s tweet confirms his return as the angry green giant in “Captain America: Civil War.” Fans expressed their excitement over possibly seeing Bruce Banner again in the sequel although the studio has yet to confirm the character’s return.

    ot off the news that Emily Vancamp will be returning as Sharon Carter in next year's Captain America: Civil War, an anonymous user has taken to 4Chan and supposedly leaked the plot of the film online.

So, if you're ready, then come and take a look at what could be the entire plot for Captain America: Civil War.

  • 8th May 2015 - Agents of SHIELD may appear
    Thanks to Randolph for the heads up.

    Actor Clark Gregg revealed in an exclusive interview that he thinks that the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) TV series, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D," could play a part in the third Captain America film, "Civil War."

    Gregg, who plays Director Phil Coulson in the TV series and in earlier MCU films, said in an exclusive interview with that S.H.I.E.L.D is responsible for pushing the registration of super heroes and super-powered humans in the comic books.

    "If you've ever read any of the Civil War comics, you'll know that S.H.I.E.L.D. is very much part of a group that's trying to register the (super heroes), and that really divides and forces some S.H.I.E.L.D. agents... to really decide which side of that conflict they're on," Gregg explained.

    The Civil War is a multi-title storyline arc in the Marvel comic books that pits two groups of superheroes against each other in a war. One side is led by Iron Man who supports the Superhuman Registration Act, while the other side opposes the Act under the leadership of Captain America.


  • 7th May - Production Begins - Press Release
    Marvel Studios has commenced principal photography at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia on “Captain America: Civil War,” the third installment of its Super Hero franchise. The production will shoot on location in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film’s production, as well as locations in Germany, Puerto Rico and Iceland.

    Set for release in the United States on May 6, 2016, “Captain America: Civil War” is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo (Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Community”) from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (“Captain America: The Winter Solider,” Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”). The film returns Chris Evans (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron”) as the iconic Super Hero character Steve Rogers/Captain America along with Robert Downey Jr. (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Marvel’s “Iron Man 3”) as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Sebastian Stan (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Captain America: The First Avenger”) as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Paul Bettany (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Iron Man 3”) as The Vision, Jeremy Renner (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Marvel’s “The Avengers”) as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Don Cheadle (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Iron Man 3”) as Jim Rhodes/War Machine and Elizabeth Olsen (“Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Godzilla”) as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch.

    After his debut in Marvel’s “Ant-Man” on July 17, 2015, Paul Rudd (“Ant-Man,” ”Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues”) 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 (“42,” “Get on Up”) as T’Challa/Black Panther, Emily VanCamp (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Revenge”) as Sharon Carter/Agent 13, Daniel BrΓΌhl (“Inglourious Basterds,” “Bourne Ultimatum”), Frank Grillo (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Warrior”) as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones, William Hurt (“A History of Violence,” Marvel’s “The Incredible Hulk”) as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross and Martin Freeman (“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”).

    “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.

    Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” is produced by Marvel Studios’ president, Kevin Feige, with Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.

    Directors Joe and Anthony Russo’s creative team also includes director of photography Trent Opaloch (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Elysium”), production designer Owen Paterson (“Godzilla,” “Matrix”), and three time Oscar®-nominated costume designer Judianna Makovsky (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”).

    Based on the Marvel comic character first published in 1941, “Captain America: Civil War ” continues the lineage of epic big-screen adventures chronicled in “Iron Man,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Thor,” “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Marvel's The Avengers,” “Iron Man 3,” “Thor: The Dark World,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and the upcoming release schedule, which includes Marvel’s “Ant-Man” on July 17, 2015, Marvel’s “Doctor Strange,” on November 4, 2016, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy 2,” on May 5, 2017, and Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok,” on November 3, 2017.

    Marvel Studios most recently continued its unprecedented success with the release of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” on May 1, 2015. The film recorded the second biggest opening weekend of all time with a $191.3 million box office. It has also been the #1 release in every country where it has been released.


  • 7th May 2015 - Emily VanCamp Reprising Her Role As Agent 13
    In the wake of Revenge ending its four-season run on ABC, sources tell Deadline that actress Emily VanCamp is returning as Agent 13 aka Kate aka Sharon Carter in Walt Disney Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War. Sharon Carter appeared briefly in Captain America: Winter Soldier as the superhero’s next door neighbor under the alias of Kate. She is ordered by S.H.I.E.L.D. to protect him. Her storyline in Civil War is under wraps. Sharon is also the niece of Peggy Carter, Captain America’s love interest in the first feature installment, who also had her own miniseries on ABC, Agent Carter, earlier this year.

    Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War" has added another name to its growing cast with Martin Freeman, who will make his debut in the film.

    "From his roles as Bilbo Baggins and Doctor Watson to Tim in 'The Office,' Martin's range from the dramatic to the comedic has consistently impressed us," said "Captain America: Civil War" Producer Kevin Feige. "We couldn't be more honored or excited to have such a talented actor join the Marvel Cinematic Universe."

  • 27th April 2015 - Daniel Bruhl's Role Revealed
    It is, and Hollywood has noticed, too. BrΓΌhl has just been cast in the new Captain America, as the villain, Baron Helmut Zemo – “I think I can tell you that without being thrown into Marvel prison…” – and starts shooting at the end of April. “For the first few days I’ll walk around like a little boy, just amazed by the megalomania of it. It’s such a huge project. We could do 20 films with the budget.”


  • 15th April 2015 - Scarlet Witch Will Be Included
    Finally Joss was like ‘Let’s use those plates to let Scarlet Witch fly into frame, give her a big entrance?’ And that makes sense - she’s come to their side, and she deserves the cool intro, which will feed into another movie we start shooting in a few weeks.


  • 23rd March 2015 - Rumor - Marvel Auditioned 16 Year Old Mateus Ward For Spider-Man
    I had heard from solid sources that Marvel was looking at some 16 and 17 year old actors; now a new (untested) source has chimed in to say that Mateus Ward, a child actor from Showtime's Weeds, auditioned for the role. It was so super secret they held the audition at a house, not any sort of office, but word leaks out (16 year olds can't keep their mouths shut). Does this mean Ward will get the role? I don't know, and I'm not really familiar with the kid's work, but if true it does show that Marvel is indeed casting young. They don't want a Peter Parker (and look at Ward -he would be Peter Parker, not Miles Morales) turning 35 as they begin production on his third film. Like I said, this is a new source, but the information backs up other stuff I've been told by other sources I know well.

    I've been very vocal about wanting Marvel to cast young for the role - I think a legitimately teenaged Peter Parker is a striking outsider when compared against the grown men playing Iron Man and Captain America. We've had 'high school Peter Parker' on film before, but this will be the first time it will be a truly high school aged actor playing the role, and that will visually pay off in spades.


  • 20th March 2015 - Plot Revealed
    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.


  • 20th Jan 2015 - Updated Synopsis

    In the next planned storyline, billionaire Tony Stark is pitted against Captain America aka Steve Rogers in an ethical face-off over the U.S. government’s Superhuman Registration Act, which requires all super-powered individuals to register their powers and report to S.H.I.E.L.D.
    (April 4 - August 8 / Release Date: May 6, 2016)


  • 15th Jan 2015 - Black Widow Confirmed to Appear
    Joe and Anthony Russo were in Beijing today when the Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors were pressed about returning to helm the 2016 follow-up, which they reassure will commence principal photography in April. "We've been preparing for the movie since the last one debuted last year," said Anthony. "So, we've been working on it for a long time now. We're very happy how it's coming along. Captain America 3 is gonna be called Captain America: Civil War and it's going to star Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson will be back, Winter Soldier [Sebastian Stan] will be back, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man will also be joining us in the next film." It had been reported previously that Natasha Romanoff, aka the Black Widow, was expected to play a part in Civil War, but it's nice to know for sure that she won't be killed off in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

    Furthermore, after promising that Bucky aka the Winter Soldier, will play a big part in the movie, the Russo duo were asked what new element will Civil War bring to the Captain America franchise. In response, Joe Russo stated the obvious: "The new element in this film is that Captain America and Iron Man get into a fight with each other." About that fallout, co-writer Stephen McFeely promises that it will be... "untidy." Anyhow, watch the full interview with the Russos below where they address whether or not China will have any influence on the movie.

  • 14th November 2014 - Daniel Bruhl joins cast as Villian
    Daniel Bruhl (“Rush,” “Inglourious Basterds”) has joined the cast of Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War,” set to rock the Marvel Cinematic Universe on May 6, 2016.

    The celebrated actor earned Golden Globe, SAG, BAFTA and Critics’ Choice nominations for his role as Niki Lauda in director Ron Howard’s “Rush.” In addition to Howard, Bruhl has also worked with other esteemed directors such as Quentin Tarantino, Paul Greengrass, Anton Corbijn, and Michael Winterbottom.

    Bruhl joins Chris Evans (Captain America), Robert Downey, Jr. (Iron Man), and Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) in “Captain America: Civil War,” with Joe and Anthony Russo returning to direct after this year's hit Marvel's “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”

    “With Daniel's ability to deliver intense, nuanced performances, we knew we had found yet another great actor to share the screen with some of our biggest heroes,” said Producer Kevin Feige.

    Bruhl is represented by Tavistock Wood Management, Players Agentur Management, and WME.
