The third part of Captain America will be the biggest event in the marvel universe on screen till date. Captain America: Civil War is expected to be more of an Avengers sequel than the third part of Captain America, which it will be if you look at the ensemble cast of the movie. The fact that Iron Man will go toe to toe with Captain America has already created a sense of excitement and buzz among the Marvel fans. The movie is based on the 2006 comic book storyline “Civil War” by Mark Millar. Marvel Studio has already released a synopsis of the movie and is as follows:
“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.”
Captain America was against this policy as he argued that the secrecy is required by superheroes to maintain aspects of their ‘normal’ life and there will be minimal loss while trying to protect the planet from evil. We also need to observe the transformation of Tony Stark from the first part of Iron man to the Avengers: Age of Ultron. From being an arrogant genius, playboy, billionaire and Philanthropist to a person who wants to protect his loved ones and the planet from destruction and loss. The incidents in Avengers: Age of Ultron changed Tony Stark as he was the creator of Ultron, who became an agent of destruction. The new Tony Stark is ready to take responsibility and what better way to show it then by accepting the system of accountability and a governing body which would regulate the actions of superheroes.
What to expect from Captain America: Civil War?
The Anti heroes regulation forces
According to Captain America, through this act of establishing a governing body over heroes, the heroes will become puppets in the hands of politicians. Captain America with the help of the New Avengers that include Falcon, Scarlet Witch and Vision will go rogue and try to prevent the establishing of the governing body.
Baron Zemo: The leader of villains
Baron Zemo is known to be the arch rival of Captain America in the Marvel Universe. Baron Zemo with his gifted intellect, excellent marksmanship, extensive training in combat coupled with his reputation of being a highly accomplished strategist and leader makes him a very dangerous foe. It won’t be surprising to see baron Zemo gather a group of super villains and fight for Iron Man against Captain America.
Crossbones and Sharon Carter
Crossbones is played by Frank Grillo, who we might remember from the lift scene where he and his team attack Captain America but they are defeated. In the comics, Crossbones and Sharon Carter (played by Emily VanCamp) carry out the assassination of Captain America following the events of Civil War. These two characters are going to be hated by the fans; there is no doubt about it. Sharon Stone is the niece of Peggy Carter, who we are familiar with as the love of Steve Rogers.
Can Martin Freeman be cast as Doctor Faustus?
Marvel studios have not mentioned about the role or character to be played by Martin Freeman. But could he be Doctor Faustus? Doctor Faustus hypnotizes Sharon Carter, and makes her assassinate Captain America in the comics. There is a high possibility that we can see Martin Freeman in the role of Doctor Faustus.
Is Civil War going to be the end of Captain America?
Finally, the biggest question running in the fans of Marvel Universe is whether Captain America going to die in Civil War. Chris Evans has only one marvel movie remaining before the termination of his contract. This makes me feel that this might as well be the last time we see Steve Rogers on screen. This could be a traumatizing end to the Civil War, one which will have a great impact on Marvel Cinematic Universe.
All in all we can expect a mind blowing plot which will leave us saying “What did I just see?”
