Marvel closed out its Phase 2 slate last summer with Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, the later of which was originally supposed to kick off Phase 3 before the studio announced its upcoming line-up. Instead of Ant-Man, the studio decided that Captain America: Civil War will open Phase 3 in quite the explosive fashion, with practically every hero in the MCU battling against each other. Over the weekend, the full track list for Henry Jackman's Captain America: Civil War soundtrack was released, which may feature a few cryptic story spoilers, so read on at your own risk.
The track list comes courtesy of Film Music Reporter, with the soundtrack consisting of 21 pieces of music, including one bonus track dubbed "Adiago." The soundtrack score consists of Siberian Overture (2:56), Lagos (2:10), Consequences (2:22), Ancestral Call (2:37), Zemo (3:09), The Tunnel (3:51), Celestial Bodies (1:44), Boot Up (5:16), New Recruit (1:47), Empowered (1:59), Standoff (4:01), Civil War (4:26), Larger Than Life (3:40), Catastrophe (2:36), Revealed (5:38), Making Amends (1:34), Fracture (4:00), Clash (3:54), Closure (5:32), Cap's Promise (3:46) and Bonus: Adagio (2:18). There are a few plot points that could be teased from these track titles alone.
The Lagos track could signal our first introduction to Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman). Lagos is a major city in the African country of Nigeria, and although Black Panther hails from the fictional African country of Wakanda, it's possible that we may first see Black Panther in Lagos right as the movie kicks off, introducing this long-awaited character quite early. It's also possible that Consequences will be played during the scene we've seen in the trailers, where Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) shows the Avengers all of the destruction they've caused. Zemo is an obvious reference to the movie's main villain, Daniel Bruhl's Baron Zemo, who is responsible for a lot of the events that transpire in Captain America: Civil War. The New Recruit track will most likely be played during the scene we've scene in a previously-released clip, where Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) brings Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), a.k.a. Ant-Man, to meet both Cap (Chris Evans) and The Falcon (Anthony Mackie).
The Larger Than Life track may hint at a rumor that has been swirling for the past several months. There has been talk that Scott Lang will transform into Giant Man at some point during the movie, who becomes anywhere between 15 and 20 feet tall. That report was never confirmed, though LEGO is releasing an official Civil War playset that features a Giant Man figure. We'll find out if Giant Man makes an appearance when Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6. As for the rest of the tracks, we're not sure what their significance may be, but stay tuned for more details.
Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps, one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. You can take a look at the soundtrack cover art, which features Iron Man and Captain America locked in an intense face-off.
