The Avengers have never been without internal conflict. The first Avengers had the superheroes sizing each other up and getting testy with one another; the second one saw everyone getting (justifiably) pissed off at Tony for inventing a megalomaniacal killer robot. But in the end, these guys always manage to work it out. Because someone’s gotta save the world at the end of the day, after all. And if all goes well, sometimes they even muster up the energy to celebrate with shawarma afterward.
Not so in Captain America: Civil War. This time around, the rift between Captain America and Iron Man is far bigger, with Bucky Barnes and the Sokovia Accords pulling the former teammates further and further apart. A new Captain America: Civil War featurette, breaks down the Avenger-on-Avenger conflict, and teases a big third-act showdown that promises to break from the usual Marvel formula. Star Chris Evans, producer Kevin Feige, executive producer Nate Moore, and directors Joe and Anthony Russo all weigh in.
