So I know what you're thinking, you're crazy to believe that we could be getting The Civil War story line soon. I want to first start off by saying i don't think we'll get it all in one movie. I believe the story will take place throughout many movies only heating up more and more. The way I see it there's too many elements this story tries to cram into even a three hour movie, no matter the writer. What follows is all speculation, so take it with a grain of salt, but here is how I think the flames ignite to the massive fire this becomes later down the road. This story starts out after Age Of Ultron and all the destruction it is sure to bring the world.
I believe The Avengers will be able to handle Ultron one way or another, but at what cost? This movie seems to be really dark and it promises so many casualties all around which I doubt the world will take lightly. We know so far Tony Stark will be Ultron's creator so I can see The Avengers being blamed for the destruction he causes even if they do vanquish him in the end. Tony will be filled with so much guilt because of this he will have no choice but to take the side of the government. This leads to Tony wanting to help with keeping the people more at ease and what do the people want? They want the heroes to be kept under surveillance and registered to know where they are at all times. This of course doesn't fly with some of our heroes especially Captain America. He's already seen the dark side of this high surveillance in Captain America 2 so of course he's against it. What follows in the end is of course the split between our favorite heroes as they set off on their own paths. Captain isn't alone though as Thor sides with him and Black Widow to create a new team.
The post credit scene in age of Ultron could be Steve Rogers showing up at Hank Pym's doorstep asking for help after Peggy sent him. Hank smiles and tells him the man of the hour is right inside, we are taken into a laboratory where he tells him he is right in front of him. We see nothing though and Rogers is confused looking around, he asks what he should be looking at then we see a man the size of an ant start to grow and its Lang! Boom! End of scene! This may be the best way to introduce Ant Man into the whole Avengers circle having Hank Pym been a part of S.H.I.E.L.D at some point in the past. He comes back after hearing of Stark's proposal for the hero registration and he is against it completely and a big reason he left S.H.I.E.L.D due to what they wanted to do with his work. The next Marvel movies could show all of the heroes like [Black Panther](movie:9047) and [Doctor Strange](movie:559685) etc end credit scenes being recruited by either Stark or Rogers leading up into the [The Avengers 3](movie:738027) which could very well be the Civil War between our Heroes.
The Civil War will be bloody and heart breaking seeing friends almost destroy each other for stupid reasons. This is Thanos perfect time to collect the Infitnity Stones and finally achieve his master plan to make Death happy. This could have the Guardians coming to Earth with Nova and Adam Warlock to warn the Heroes. I think Thanos arrival could very well be what unites our heroes to come against this common threat. This makes me also think the movie should be split into two parts with one focusing solely on the Civil War and the other having the focus on Thanos.
Though I'm really shooting high with all this I personally think it be a great choice to introduce a major story line like the Civil War before we lose Iron Man and Captain America and others. The truth is, I doubt Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr will be with the Universe any longer than a decade. With [The Avengers 3](movie:738027) slated for 2018/2019 release i strongly believe it will be their last major appearance. They have to make way for other characters and i think this just be the proper send off to the epic story line they've been cooking up since 2008. Just my thoughts though all speculation of course let me know what you think! Comment Below!
