Earlier today in an interview with MTV, the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron gave fans a few teasers pertaining to the upcoming Civil War and the epic Infinity Wars.
You can watch the interview here.
Captain America: Civil War is not an Avengers film
A lot of people have the idea in their head that Civil War will just be another Avengers film. Chris Evans was very quick to point out that Captain America: Civil War will be a standalone Captain America movie that will lead into the events of Avengers: Infinity War. What exactly will transpire during the Civil War? Well, we all know there is going to the the conflict between Tony Stark and Steve Rogers, but what exactly will lead up the this? If they go down the comic road, Captain America starts a revolution opposing S.H.I.E.L.D and the Superhero Registration Act where Tony Stark gives his loyalty. Don't go into Civil War expecting to see the next Avengers film, go in expecting an epic event leading to the next Avengers film.
No Bruce Banner or Hulk?
According to Mark Ruffalo, The Hulk will have no part in Captain America: Civil War. Last we saw of Bruce Banner he was on a S.H.I.E.L.D jet heading towards the Pacific Ocean, this is the last information we were given on The Hulk's whereabouts. It is very unclear as to what Bruce Banner will be up to on his time away from the team. Could Bruce Banner possibly come in contact with Dr. Strange? Dr. Strange received his training in the Himalayas in China, near the Pacific Ocean, where The Hulks last known location is. Could Hulk possibly be teaming with Thor in his search for the Infinity Stones? This would be epic, and very possible due to the fact that Thor will also not be involved with Civil War as he traveled back to Asgard to search for these Gems. Both Avengers could be working together in the time away from the team.
Ragnarok, the android clone of the God of Thunder Thor, played a big part in the Civil War story line. Thor, last we saw was taking a break from the Avengers and returns to Asgard to search for the Infinity Stones. In the comics, during Thor's absence Tony Stark along with Reed Richards and Hank Pym create an android clone of Thor named Ragnarok. I believe this is very possible, due to the fact Chris Hemsworth has stated he will not be a part of the Civil War Story as "Thor" and not to mention the next Thor film is titled Thor Ragnarok. Hank Pym, one of the original creators of Ragnarok will be introduced into the MCU by way of Ant-Man, which is set to be released this summer. This could possible link the two movies and introduce Hank Pyme and Scott Lang respectively to the Avengers.
Don't Expect an Avengers film until Infinity War
Do not go into Captain America: Civil War expecting to see the next Avengers epic or you will be greatly disappointed. Think of this film as a bridge that connects the current state of the MCU to the future. Civil war will open the floodgates as it pertains to the MCU story lines and it will be interesting to see what the future holds for us as fans. Will we see Hulk? Will we see the birth of Ragnarok? At this point we don't know a lot but rest assure it will be epic. Get ready everyone, Who's side are you on?
