CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Start Date & Synopsis

Captain America 3 Banner

The first plot synopsis is out for Captain America: Civil War, a 2016 superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero Captain America, which begins shooting on April 1 in Atlanta.

It offers some indication of what’s to come in the thirteenth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, while also being the first installment of Phase Three.

Here’s an unofficial synopsis that was attached with a new casting call for extras:

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.

The studio will release an updated one once Avengers: Age of Ultron opens on May 1st, but this seems to be the road Marvel is taking to drop Robert Downey Jr. off its universe. And now it’s obvious that Civil War will be about the conflict over the Superhero Registration Act.

However, I doubt secret identities will play as major a role in the film as they did in the comics. The sequel will probably focus on regulation of their activities and government oversight, so it would be awesome if they could get Obama to cameo in this.

Captain America: Civil War releases in theaters on May 6 2016 and stars RDJ, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, and Jeremy Renner alongside Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther and Daniel Brühl as Baron Zemo.
