In just a few short months, Captain America: Civil War will kick off Marvel's massive Phase Three lineup in grand fashion, with this iconic story of the studio's beloved heroes divided, fighting each other instead of a common enemy. We got another glimpse of new footage during the new Super Bowl trailer last weekend, but today we have new pieces of promo artwork, courtesy of Comic Book Movie, which shows Team Captain America assembling. This team includes Cap (Chris Evans) himself, along with The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), The Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), and Sharon Carter, a.k.a. Agent 13 (Emily VanCamp).
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.
We also have even more promo art that was on display at the New York Toy Fair this weekend, which features both Team Cap and Team Iron Man members sporting their new costumes. Team Iron Man includes Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Vision (Paul Bettany), War Machine (Don Cheadle) and the new character T'challa (Chadwick Boseman), who will make his debut in this movie before starring in Black Panther, set for release on February 16, 2018. Marvel's Captain America: Civil War also stars Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Frank Grillo as Crossbones, William Hurt as Thaddeus Ross and Daniel Brühl as the villainous Baron Zemo.
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.
Captain America: Civil War will kick off the Marvel Phase Three slate, which is jam-packed with 10 highly-anticipated movies.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is also in production, arriving in theaters on May 5, 2017, followed by Thor: Ragnarok on November 3, 2017.
