The Captain America: Civil War movie synopsis was recently released, as well as the international trailer. Now, according to Collider, someone pointed out in this synopsis what splits up the heroes. Apparently, there’s an incident, involving collateral damage due to the Avengers’ involvement. It isn’t certain if this is referring to the events that occurred at Sokovia during Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Some time ago, it was pointed out in the debut of the first trailer a document passed along a table entitled, “Sokovia Accords: Framework for the Registration and Deployment of Enhanced Individuals,” according to the Inquisitr. This synopsis talks about a “system of accountability.” The recent synopsis is as follows.
“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.”
The comic book Marvel Civil War series has it’s own storyline, entailing what triggered the enactment of this regulatory measure. The New Warriors went to take on villain Nitro. Nitro basically exploded, killing a lot of innocents. This set the Superhuman Registration Act in motion, resulting in differing opinions on the matter when it came to an issue of compliance by registering and revealing identities, according to the Marvel Wikia.
Though the events that led to creating a system of accountability were of similar motivation, it’s likely not going to follow the storyline identical to the Marvel Civil War comic book series. Also, Collider reported in comparing this recent movie synopsis with the last one, it talks about how there is no mention of “a new and nefarious villain.” Also, there some level of concrete belief systems laid out between those that have chosen sides. Captain America’s interest in keeping the Avengers out of government influence and Tony Stark’s belief that lies on the other side of Steve Roger’s belief system.
“Team Cap is all about keeping The Avengers free from government control, while Team Iron Man is in favor of accountability.”
If anyone recalls Captain America’s conversation with Tony Stark at Hawkeye’s cabin, there’s a bit of suspicion from Tony, where he questions Steve Roger’s lack of a dark side. Steve defends his side, explaining that it hasn’t been seen yet and then there’s the issue of Tony having inadvertently creating Ultron without having told anyone about his pet project. He even did it twice with Vision.
In this Captain America movie sequel, it looks like relationships are being challenged, as it appears so in the trailer. As some of us saw, it looks like things are getting tense when Iron Man questions Captain America’s allegiance to their friendship, favoring Bucky over the philanthropic billionaire. Things are looking rather grim, but perhaps Spider-Man and Ant-Man can add some levity to the situation as director Anthony Russo explains how they’ll come on board later in the film, according to Cinema Blend.
“Characters like Spider-Man and Ant-Man enter the story a little later.”
Captain America: Civil War movie is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo and is scheduled to debut in theaters come May 6, 2016. Come next year, whose side will you be choosing when this on-screen version of a Marvel Civil War breaks out?
