After waiting for months, fans will know what’s coming up next as Marvel reveals Captain America’s and Iron Man’s civil war teams. The name of the new Cap film, Captain America: Civil War, has gotten more than a few people curious about what the civil war will be about and who will be fighting it. Now, thanks to some new promotional artwork, we have a pretty good idea who’s on whose side.
The film will involve one team led by the Captain and one led by Iron Man, and they will be battling each other. Take a look at their teams.
Team Captain America
Of course, Steve Rogers will be leading this team, and his followers will include Hawkeye, Ant-Man, Sharon Carter, Falcon, and the Winter Soldier.
We recognize Hawkeye, Falcon, and Ant-Man as heroes of previous movies. You might also recall Sharon Carter, the pretty granddaughter of Agent Peggy Carter, the Cap’s love interest from the first movie. Spoiler alert: She is most likely to become the newest love interest for everybody’s favorite American hero.
You might also recognize the Winter Soldier, aka Bucky, from the second Captain America film. Apparently, he remembers that he was once Rogers’ best friend and is willing and ready to fight by his side.
This team seems pretty impressive, but let’s take a look at the opposing side.
Team Iron Man
Tony Stark in a brand new super suit is, of course, at the head of this smaller, but equally fierce team of heros. Fighting alongside Stark we have War Machine, Black Widow, Black Panther, and Vision.
We know James Rhodes, a.k.a. War Machine, from previous films, and it’s no surprise that he is teaming up with his buddy Stark. And you probably remember Vision, the god-like creation of Tony Stark and Bruce Banner from Avengers: Age of Ultron, played by Paul Bettany. It’s no surprise that he’s joining his creator’s team.
Black Panther, the king of Wakanda, a land of amazing technological achievements, has pledged himself to the service of all mankind. It will be interesting to see why he has chosen to serve with Iron Man instead of the other team.
Perhaps the most surprising member of Stark’s team is Black Widow. She has always seemed to have a closer relationship to Captain America than to Tony Stark, and her joining Iron Man’s team will mean she must go up against her long-time close friend Hawkeye.
There have also been rumors that Spider-Man will be joining the fray at the side of Iron Man, but there has been no confirmation of that rumor just yet.
There will be more news to come regarding this epic civil war in the future. Captain America: Civil War is set to come out on May 6, 2016.
