Batman vs. Superman can be heralded as a superhero box office hit from ticket sales but it has had mixed reviews from critics and fans. If the DC establishment left you feeling empty, perhaps a Marvel hero will help fill that void. On May 6th, in North America, Captain American returns to the screen in Captain America: Civil War.
Chris Evans will once again don the Captain America suit, but this time his battle isn’t against villains. This time, he is fighting outside the boundaries of the law and against his superhero friends because of an old friend, Bucky Barnes.
Bucky, a.k.a. Winter Soldier, is a long lost friend of Steve Rogers from a time before Captain America. Bucky was turned into an enhanced brainwashed assassin, but has regained some of his memory and Captain America wants to believe in him. The other superheroes have their doubts.
After an international incident involving the Avengers results in massive collateral damages, world politicians form a system of accountability and a governing body to dictate when the Avenger team is called in. Tony Stark is in agreement that rules are needed and need to be followed in order to keep the team on a straight path. Steve Rogers prefers to continue operating without regulation.
Normally the voice of reason, in Civil War, Captain America’s choices split the Avenger team in two as each member is forced to choose sides with either Team Tony or Team Steve.
Team Tony includes: Black Widow, War Machine, Black Panther, Vision, & Spiderman.
Team Steve includes: Winter Soldier, Falcon, Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, & Ant-Man/Giant-Man.
Civil War brings a hoard of Marvel superheroes together, so it is certain to be an epic battle.
