Now that Avengers: Age of Ultron is in theaters and well on it’s way to box office domination, Marvel has gone a head and released news for Captain America: Civil War.
What’s supposed to be the third movie for Captain America is turning into an Avengers movie of its own. If you look at the official casting released by Marvel today you will see why.
Ever since this movie was announced in 2014 the cast of superheroes continue to grow and grow. Recently, Marvel announced the addition of Paul Rudd, aka Aunt-Man and William Hurt. If you think you’ve seen William Hurt in a Marvel movie before, well you’re not wrong.
William Hurt will be playing General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross the same General from “The Incredible Hulk” movie. This will mark the first time anyone from that movie has made an appearance in another Marvel movie. Martin Freeman has also joined the cast, but there has been no word on exactly what character or what his role will be.
Of course lets not forget “Spider-Man” will also be making his Marvel MCU debut in this movie. From the rumors it looks as if Marvel and Sony maybe down to their final two choices for the role, but now that filming for Civil War is underway I’m guessing it won’t be much longer before we know will be suiting up as everyone’s favorite wall-crawler.
Besides, Marvel letting us know who’s in the movie they have also gone a head and given us a synopsis for Captain America: Civil War.
“Captain America: Civil War” picks up where “Avengers: Age of Ultron” left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
Marvel’s synopsis doesn’t really tell us anything; other then reaffirming what most of us could of already guessed.
Captain America: Civil War is scheduled to hit theaters May 6, 2016. Anthony and Joe Russo are returning to the directors chair.
