After Marvel confirmed Captain America 3 at its Special Event last October, a rumor is now spreading through the Avengers fandom that a trailer for Captain America: Civil War is imminent.
With Avengers: Age Of Ultron due to open in theaters April 23, the International Business Times reports that fans will be eagerly watching for tensions between Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans), as comic aficionados know that in Civil War the two heroes are on opposite sides.

Filming on Captain America 3 is due to start this April, with a release date set for next May 6, 2016. Rumor has it that the trailer might be released at a similar Marvel Special Event later this year. However, that hasn’t stopped fans of Captain America (and Chris Evans) coming up with their own teaser trailer compilations, as this report includes above.
The International Business Times also quoted the official synopsis, released by Marvel Friday March 20.
“Following the events of Age of Ultron, the collective governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman activity. This polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers, causing two factions to side with Iron Man or Captain America, which causes an epic battle between former allies.”

Following this statement, discussions were set ablaze as to who would side with whom. It is not expected that Thor (Chris Hemsworth) will feature in Captain America 3, given the future Norse battle of Thor 3: Ragnarok. There will be included, however, in one of the two factions, Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and – most exciting for those who follow the franchise – maybe even Spider-Man. Of all suppositions, those characters that have been confirmed for Captain America: Civil War are Black Panther, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and Falcon (Anthony Mackie).
As Yahoo! Movies reported, Mackie has been elated to be part of the Marvel machine, deeming it the “Disneyland for adults”.
“It’s like going to Vegas with an unlimited credit card. It’s by far the most stupendous film experience you’ll have. It’s just ridiculous.”
Indeed, the relationship between his character, Falcon, and Captain America – a relationship he considers based on “mutual respect” and “soldier respect” – is expected to develop further after Avengers: Age Of Ultron, becoming a more central plot line in Captain America 3.

Captain America: Civil War will cover the original infamous Marvel Comics battle, but as the Inquisitr reports, Marvel is currently creating Civil War 2 of The Secret Wars, due to hit shelves this July. It has been confirmed that Tony Stark and Captain America will still be at odds in the new comic.
