After an epic declaration of Marvel entering Phase 3 via Captain America: Civil War via teaser trailer and poster art, a new synopsis comes from the Marvel Studio camp giving insight to what fans can expect from the narrative.
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. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May.
Although for a film that has the title Captain America, there seems to be a lot of setting up for other Marvel Hero films in the works, much like our GNC hinted at. The trailer could have easily been for an Avengers or Iron Man film. So will Captain America be an epic conclusion to Steve Roger’s legacy? Or just a footstool to reach the higher shelf of Marvel content aka Avengers Infinity War 1 & 2?
