Recently, the world was introduced to first looks at Captain America and Falcon from Captain America: Civil War, and there was also the first look at Crossbones. While that is huge in itself, the bigger thing to think about is that it will be the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) version of Civil War and everyone wants to know: Who will side with whom — Captain America or Iron Man?
The film will bring about superheroes feuding with one another as some support the Superhuman Registration Act while others are totally against it. Those in favor of the act will side with Iron Man, aka Tony Stark, while those against it will side with Captain America, aka Steve Rogers.
A number of sites and people have started making their assumptions and guesses as to who could end up siding with whom. Let’s take a look at just what may happen.
So far, it looks like these are those that will be siding with Captain America (Chris Evans):
- Black Widow – Scarlett Johansson
- Falcon – Anthony Mackie
- Hawkeye – Jeremy Renner
Here are those rumored to be siding with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.):
- War Machine – Don Cheadle
- Ant-Man – Paul Rudd
- The Vision – Paul Bettany
Finally, here are the wild-cards whose side hasn’t really been determined or even thought of yet.
- Spider-Man – Rumored to be Asa Butterfield
- Black Panther – Chadwick Boseman
- Scarlet Witch – Elizabeth Olsen
- The Winter Soldier – Sebastian Stan
If one had to guess here, it would likely be that Black Panther and Spider-Man will side with Tony Stark, while Winter Soldier and Scarlet Witch will side with Steve Rogers.
There are a couple of other superhero names that may end up appearing in Captain America: Civil War, but their status is currently unknown. Thor has a lot to deal with back at home, and he’ll be dealing with those events on Thor: Ragnarok.
Now the main talk has been about Hulk and if he will end up showing up in the film. We know that General “Thunderbolt” Ross is going to be in Civil War, but Hulk was thought to be absent. That was until earlier this week, when Mark Ruffalo started a lot of Marvel talk.

According to Cinema Blend, there’s another battle that could end up coming about in Civil War, and it’s Hawkeye vs. Black Panther. There is reportedly going to be a “huge fight” between these two and it’s going to be interesting to see who is more stealthy.
Aside from all the aforementioned superheroes, we can’t forget that there will be Thunderbolt (William Hurt), Baron Zemo (Daniel Bruhl), Crossbones (Frank Grillo), Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp), and others.
The May 6, 2016 release of Captain America: Civil War is going to be a huge film that ends up leading toward the rest of the next phase in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Here’s what is on the way.
- Ant-Man – July 17, 2015
