Marvel Releases New Plot Synopsis For ‘Captain America: Civil War’

We’re sure by now you’ve seen the fantastic first trailer for the highly-anticipated Captain America: Civil War. Curious to know a little more about the film’s plot and how it’s different from the comic of the same title? Well, Marvel has released a new synopsis for the film that will fill you in on those details a bit. Check out the synopsis below and let us know whose side you’re on in the comments 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. 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.
