Ever since Captain America: Civil War was announced back in October, during Marvel's now-legendary press event, fans have wondered which superheroes will be siding with Captain America and which will align themselves with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). Production is still happening in Atlanta, where Jeremy Renner was spotted wearing a hat which teases the side his character Hawkeye may be on. The hat features an embroidered logo that reads "Team Captain America," seemingly revealing where Hawkeye's allegiance truly lies.
Captain America: Civil War takes place after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) 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.
In the comic books, The "system of accountability" in question is the Superhero Registration Act, where every superhero must register themselves with the government and become part of a global police force designed to deter world threats. Tony Stark is all for this initiative, while Cap is against it, and now it seems that Hawkeye is on Steve Rogers' side as well. Jeremy Renner teased earlier this week that the superhero movie has "a lot of stuff happening," and that he has a much more physical role this time around. Going off the Ant-Man post-credit scene, which finds Falcon and Captain America trying to free The Winter Solider's bionic arm from a vice, the Superhero Registration Act is being called the Sokovia Accords in Captain America: Civil War, and they ask each individual superhero to be accountable for their actions.
Along with Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr. and Jeremy Renner, Captain America: Civil War stars Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Sebastian Stan (The Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (The Falcon), Paul Bettany (Vision), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Emily VanCamp (Agent 13), Daniel Brühl (Baron Zemo), Frank Grillo Crossbones), William Hurt (Thaddeus Ross) and Martin Freeman in an unspecified role. The only major stars from Avengers: Age of Ultron who won't be present are Chris Hemsworth's Thor and Mark Ruffalo's Hulk, although there have been rumors that Hulk shows up.
This photo isn't exactly confirmation that Hawkeye is part of Team Captain America, but, with production still happening, we probably won't know for sure for quite some time. Do you think Hawkeye will side with Cap in Captain America: Civil War? Or do you think he will side with Iron Man? Check out the new photo and let us know what you think.
