‘Marvel’ Update: Possible Conflict among ‘Avengers’ in ‘Captain America: Civil War’
Conflict in “Captain America: Civil War” may very well come from the dissolution of S.H.I.E.L.D. in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” says a set report from “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Read on for more details on this story.
According to DigitalSpy.com, producer Jerry Latcham confirmed about the conflict in the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War.” It was said that it will boil from the dissolution of S.H.I.E.L.D. in “The Winter Soldier.”
“SHIELD has fallen apart, so this movie becomes Tony Stark and Steve Rogers trying to put the Avengers together without a parental unit like Nick Fury hovering over them, What you realize is that these are guys who work best with rules, and probably do need some adult supervision,” Latcham said in the report as posted by DigitalSpy.com
It seems that the difference between characters from Stark and Rogers will lead into the events of Civil War. Stark is known for his easy-going character, which is quite the opposite of Rogers’ stern and serious personality. “Civil War” is a 2006–2007 Marvel Comics crossover storyline. It ran around seven-issue limited series of the same name written by Mark Millar and penciled by Steve McNiven, which also ran through various other titles published by Marvel at the time.
The plot of the series will focus on the implementation and consequences of the Superhero Registration Act, a legislative bill that will require mandatory registration of all superheroes, revealing their identities to the US government. Public sentiment toward superheroes plummeted after an incident in Stamford, Connecticut, following a conflict between the New Warriors, a group of young superheroes and the focus of a reality TV show and the villain Nitro, which resulted in the death of over 600 civilians, 60 of whom were children.
“Civil War” will bring together heroes from Marvel’s franchise in a story, which will divide the superhero community. Based on Marvel storyline, “Civil War” heroes will be pit against fellow heroes in a clash of the ideals regarding the Superhero Registration Act. Good-intentioned superheroes will soon find themselves divided upon conflicting sides — those who fully support the Superhero Registration Act, the Pro-Registration, led by Iron Man; and those who are opposed against the Registration Act, the Anti-Registration, who rally under the banner of Captain America. The events of the series touch upon the themes of liberty, moral responsibility and civil order.
“Captain America: Civil War” will see the return of Chris Evans as Captain America, as well as the whole supporting cast of “Winter Soldier” including Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) and Anthony Mackie (Falcon). Robert Downey Jr. is set to reprise his role as Tony Stark with Chadwick Boseman who was attached to play Marvel’s Black Panther to appear in the pic. Frank Grillo is set to return as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones.
“Captain America: Civil War” is set to hit the screens on May 6, 2016.
