Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War has everyone excited and pumped for the film’s release, as its marketing campaign has been taking over social media. Stitch Kingdom was lucky enough to be given character descriptions of the heroes on Team Cap and Team Iron Man, courtesy of Disney Studios and Marvel Studios.
Minor spoilers for Captain America: Civil War up ahead.
Spider-Man has been, and will continue to be, one of the biggest components fans have been dying to see in Captain America: Civil War. With Spidey’s character bio, not much is revealed that we don’t already know, but it’s made clear that Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark/Iron Man is the one seeking him out.
“Peter Parker/Spider-Man — Recruited personally by Tony Stark, teenager Peter Parker aka Spider-Man brings his youthful energy and exceptional — though not totally mastered — skills to Iron Man’s team.”
Another big character, making his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, also has fans incredibly excited. With the character bio on Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther, it confirms a few things that have been widely speculated and believed to be true. One, it turns out his father, T’Chaka, will appear in the movie (played by who, no one knows) and will more than likely be inside of that United Nations summit that gets blown up. Whether he’s dead or just gravely injured, this is primarily what is driving Black Panther in the film.
“T’Challa/Black Panther — T’Challa’s father, T’Chaka, the King of Wakanda, joins the ranks of those who support government regulation after innocent citizens are collateral damage from an Avengers’ mission. But when events turn ugly, T’Challa must reveal himself as Black Panther and follow his own path. With his own agenda driving him, Black Panther aligns with Iron Man to achieve his own deeply personal goal.”
Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow is described to be what many had already assumed. While she has been loyal to Captain America/Steve Rogers, she does fundamentally disagree with his stance in regards to the Sokovia Accords, thus making her a part of Team Iron Man. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that Tony will be able to keep her in check.
Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch has formed a pretty strong and trustful bond with Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, according to her character description. Wanda is still trying not to feel like an outcast, but things are made more difficult when she gets thrown into the middle of this civil war. She follows Barton’s lead, feeling very safe under his watch. Speaking of Hawkeye, he appeared to be a retired man at the end of Age of Ultron, no longer part of the Avengers. But he comes back for Cap, ready to fight by his side no matter what.
Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang/Ant-Man is recruited by Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson/Falcon for his unique shrinking ability. While Wilson, of course, is always loyal to Cap and agrees with his stance against the government. Paul Bettany’s Vision is “trying to find his footing in the human world,” and will discover a growth in his powers and what he is able to do. Vision sides with Tony only because he feels it is the best way to keep the planet and all of humanity safe.
Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier is remembering more from his past in Captain America: Civil War, the character bio states. He is still trying to overcome the villain he once was and ultimately learns to trust his best friend, Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers/Captain America, and takes his side in an attempt to atone for his sins. Cap, meanwhile, opposes the government regulation and goes outside of the law to keep his best friend, Bucky, safe and unharmed. From the trailers, Black Panther will be hunting Bucky down and Steve will be intervening.
Don Cheadle as Col. James “Rhodey” Rhodes/War Machine is much like Sam Wilson, in that he is loyal to his buddy Tony and agrees with his point of view. While Stark himself is trying to become a different man, agreeing with the government regulation.
One character who is conveniently missing from these descriptions is Daniel Bruhl’s Baron Zemo.
