Fans are still talking about the first trailer for Marvel's Captain America: Civil War that debuted last month, as the countdown continues to the May 6, 2016 release. While it isn't known when the next footage will be released, Marvel debuted the new synopsis for Captain America: Civil War, which is slightly different than the original plot rundown released in May. Take a look at the synopsis below.
"Marvel's 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.
The initial synopsis released in May is roughly the same, but it added that Earth's Mightiest Heroes are fractured, "while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain." This isn't the first time that Marvel has tweaked a previously-release synopsis. They changed Ant-Man's Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) from a "con man" to a "master thief," just a few months after the original synopsis was released. It's possible that the studio is trying to take the emphasis off the main villain with this plot rundown, but that's only speculation.
Marvel's Captain America: Civil War stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd and Frank Grillo, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl. While it still hasn't been officially confirmed by Marvel, Tom Holland will also be making his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Captain America: Civil War. The actor will then move on to the stand alone Spider-Man reboot, set for release in the summer of 2017, which will be produced by both Marvel and Sony Pictures.
Anthony Russo & Joe Russo are directing with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D'Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee are the executive producers. The screenplay is by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel's Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016.
