‘Civil War’ Update: What are the Sokovia Accords and why are Captain America & Iron-Man Fighting Over them?
The news is out, Marvel Cinematic Universe’s (MCU) upcoming “Captain America: Civil War” is not going to be about Superhero Registration Act. Instead, the new theory is about something known as the Sokovia Accords. What exactly are they? Read on to find out.
According to Latino Post, “Captain America: Civil War” has nothing to do with superhero secret identities (because there is no secret identities in MCU, duh) but something called the Sokovia Accords, teased at the end of “Ant-Man” in this scene.
“Should superheroes be free to do as they please, ubermensch inflicting their will on the world? Should superheroes be bound by the whims and changing winds of politics, unable to help people simply because a dictator who has a place on the UN Security Council doesn’t want anyone interfering in his human rights abuses?”
It’s a conflict that grows out of the two characters: Tony Stark who has become increasingly aware of his responsibility to the world and Steve Rogers who has seen everything he believed in undermined when SHIELD was revealed to be a Hydra front.”
Sokovia, along with Black Panther’s Wakanda, is one of two fictional countries in MCU, with a dark history that usually involves being messed up by HYDRA or Ultron. Notable inhabitants include Wanda ‘Scarlet Witch’ Maximoff and Pieter ‘Not so bulletproof’ Maximoff.
If rumors are to be believed, this will serve as the base of the conflict in “Civil War.” and Cap’s team will take on Iron-Man’s group with Vision, Black Widow, War Machine and Spider-Man. All that on May 6, 2016.
