Marvel's next big film Captain America: Civil War is currently filming in Atlanta, Georgia and we have seen a ton of set photos from the movie and several of the stars have talked about what could happen in the film. The biggest question that everyone is asking though is, who will side with who?

This article is just my own opinion of who I believe is going to be picking what side for the film, so if you disagree that is fine.

Let's begin with Captain America's team seeing as how he and his crew will be the main characters of the film.

Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow

It's no doubt Natasha will side with Steve in Captain America 3. Although she sided with Tony in the comic, she is much closer with Cap in the films because we saw a friendship between the two of them and I doubt she would say we should listen to the government now after she was heavily involved with the fall of SHIELD.

Sam Wilson / Falcon

This one is just obvious.

Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch

I believe Wanda will side with Steve because Iron Man's tech was responsible for the death of her parents and Scarlet Witch wants to do the right thing whenever she can; and since the government says "You only do your job when we tell you too" it seems pretty clear that she would back up Cap during the film.

Clint Barton / Hawkeye

This one was tricky because we haven't really seen Hawkeye interact with Steve all that much like Nat and Sam. I believe he will side with Steve though, because he does have a strong friendship with Natasha and I doubt he would end up fighting against her, but I could be wrong at this point it is difficult to tell which team Clint will choose.

Sharon Carter / Agent 13

I believe Sharon will start off on Tony's team since the last time we saw her she was with the CIA meaning it's her job to side with the government but I think she will end up switching to Steve's side at a certain point or she will be sending intel to cap's team so he knows when Tony is getting closer to his location.

Now we switch to see who I think will be on Tony's team.

James "Rhodey" Rhodes / War Machine

Like Falcon, this one is fairly obvious.

Scott Lang / Ant-Man

Scott is a former criminal and I don't think he would want to risk entering that life again because he got out of prison for a good reason. I heard he will become Giant Man in this film which would be cool but I don't think he would do that against Cap's team because then there wouldn't be a fight at all.

T'Challa / Black Panther

T'Challa has one goal in Captain America 3 apparently and that is to find Bucky Barnes aka The Winter Soldier. Iron Man wants to do the same thing therefore I can see these two teaming up, however I don't think Panther will be on Tony's side for the whole film since as the actor Chadwick Boseman teased when the film was announced "Black Panther is kind of his own guy" meaning he may just stay in the middle which is a huge possibility as well.

General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross

Ross is not fond of heroes operating on their own so it's pretty clear that he would want the government having some sort of control over them. As for those Red Hulk rumors, I doubt they are true since like Giant Man he would make that side win and the fight should be equal, though to be fair Scarlet Witch has all sorts of magical abilities so you never know.

Martin Freeman's character

As of yet, we don't know who Mr. Freeman will be playing in the film but the writer of the Civil War comic Mark Millar teased that he isn't playing a super hero or super villain. Therefore I believe he is playing some sort of politician, and rumors say he could be playing Edward Blake, the Prime Minister of England in the Marvel Universe.

Now we will see who is not going to be choosing a side.

James 'Bucky' Barnes/Winter Soldier

Most people believe he would side with Cap, but when you really look at it he has no reason too. All he wants is vengeance against HYDRA therefore he has no reason to get involved. Also he will be the most important character in the film since every team is looking for him, Cap is trying to help him, Iron Man is trying to lock him up, Black Panther is trying to most likely kill him and Crossbones is trying to bring him back to HYDRA so they can brainwash him again. (This a rumor but I think it may be true since it makes sense)


Let's be honest here, he is powered by a god damn infinity stone, any side he chooses will just win automatically, therefore having him not pick a side makes the most sense.

I have said this many times before but I believe both teams will have to work together in the end to stop Baron Zemo since the synopsis says that the avengers must face a new and nefarious villain, it doesn't just say Cap has too therefore the team as a whole must work together to fight him. I hope you enjoyed the article, as I said before it is just opinion based so if you disagree with my choices that is completely fine, just be polite about it is all I ask.
