Marvel has Revealed CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Full Cast and Synopsis

Captain America 3 Banner

Filming has finally begun at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia for Captain America: Civil War and Marvel has released the film’s first synopsis and confirmed cast for the third installment of its Super Hero franchise.

Ant-Man star Paul Rudd and William Hurt (who played General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross in The Incredible Hulk) are two new surprising additions from the MCU. Nice!

Set for release on May 6, 2016, Captain America: Civil War is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo and stars Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America along with Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Don Cheadle as Jim Rhodes/War Machine, Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter/Agent 13, Daniel Brühl as Baron Helmut Zemo, Frank Grillo as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones, William Hurt as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Martin Freeman.

With all the characters involved, it’s looking like it’s Avengers 2 1/2 at this point. Doesn’t feel like a standalone Captain America film.But whatever, bring it on. Here’s the first synopsis:

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.

Update: Actor Sebastian Stan has posted a photo of himself as Bucky Barnes on Instagram. Although he wore the same ball cap in the post-credits sequence of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, there’s absolutely no indication of what movie it is, so take this with a grain of salt.

Having A weekend!
