“Captain America: Civil War” picks up where “Avengers: Age of Ultron” 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.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” is produced by Marvel Studios’ president, Kevin Feige, with Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo’s creative team also includes director of photography Trent Opaloch (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Elysium”), production designer Owen Paterson (“Godzilla,” “Matrix”), and three time Oscar®-nominated costume designer Judianna Makovsky (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”).”

Captain America: Civil War opens in theaters on May 6.

    Just as long as it’s not 2 hours and 31 minutes long. From what I understand, a lot of fanboys would be outraged at a CBM that dared to be that long… //

    Seriously though, give me as much bang for my buck!

      Yeah man as long as the movie is good I’ll sit there for 3 hours.

        Agreed! I sympathize with people with kids or busy jobs or small bladders, but when I go to the theater, I want to be immersed in the movie. Movies should be as long as the story justifies. I’ve seen some 90 minutes movies that seem to drag on forever and then some three hour movies that go by in a flash.

    This is AWESOME NEWS! It is only four minutes longer than Age of Ultron, but it seems to speak to the extra creative freedom at Marvel, following the exit of Ike Perlmutter. Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge fan of Ike. Both for his business acumen, and for the fact that he saved Marvel from corporate raiders.

    Movies should be however long they are supposed to be. I feel confident that 2hr 26min is the appropriate length for the story. I trust the Russo’s to tell a succinct and compelling story. I trust Feige to cut the film properly.
