The hype has been built up for [Captain America: Civil War](tag:994409) and many rumors have been spread. Sometimes it's hard to tell what we know to be true about the upcoming film and what we believe to be true based on rumors, so I'm laying out the facts of what we know for certain here.

Elizabeth Olsen Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch

Chris Evans as Steve Rogers / Captain America

Some interesting roles that tell us a little bit about what to expect:

Super Soldier 3.

  • Super Soldier? That doesn't sound good...

Raft Guard.

  • In the comic world, the Raft was a prison for various super-powered criminals located near Ryker's Island.

Many UN delegates and international representatives.

  • Presumably coming together to create some form of "accountability" for the Avengers.

2016 Release Date:

April 28 (Brazil), April 29 (U.K.), May 4 (France), May 5 (Germany), May 6 (U.S.).


Captain America: Civil War picks up where [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](tag:293035) 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.

The Teams:

Team Stark
Team Stark
Team Cap
Team Cap

Those are the facts; anything else you've heard is purely speculation. No confirmation of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, or anyone else from Netflix/ABC (yet). The good news is that Spider-Man and all of the other heroes you love are in it (apart from Hulk and Thor, who were recently confirmed for Thor: Ragnorok).
