One of the biggest story arcs to hit Marvel Comics was Civil War, an event that had an impact on the entire Marvel universe from 2006-2007. And that’s why Marvel Studios making Captain America: Civil War is such a big deal to fans of the cinematic universe.
However, it seems that some haven’t figured out, or maybe just haven’t heard, that the movie will not be taking the primary catalyst for the conflict that arises between Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) from the comic books and bringing it to the big screen.

But the Captain America Civil War superhero registration plot element isn’t being used. So what’s the story? Read More »

In the meantime, there have been a lot of rumors floating around, including word on which superheroes align themselves with Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) when they end up at odds. The aforementioned footage from D23 essentially confirmed those rumors, but in case you needed more substantial evidence, some Captain America Civil War promo art has surfaced showing each of the teams, but beware of spoilers below.

Now that Phase Two is complete, fans of the Marvel cinematic universe have their eyes set on Phase Three, which kicks off with Captain America: Civil War next March. And this particular sequel is even more exciting than most, because our favorite superheroes will be fighting each other this time.
However, we haven’t really heard much about who will take what side when Captain America and Iron Man come to blows over something called the Sokovia Accords, which seems to be some kind of form of the Superhero Registration Act from the comics, or at least a type of government oversight for the Avengers. But a new rumor has pinpointed where our heroes’ loyalties lie, including Spider-Man.

A couple years ago, Robert Downey Jr. hinted that he might be done with superhero movies once he hit age 50. That birthday arrived this past spring, and thankfully Downey is currently filming a key role in Captain America: Civil War, leaving one more film in his latest contract with Marvel for an appearance in one part of The Avengers: Infinity War.
But Marvel Studios didn’t lock down the actor who turned Iron Man and Tony Stark into a big screen icon, launching their cinematic universe, without paying a hefty price tag. In fact, Downey just landed a spot on the annual list of the wealthiest celebrities as the eighth highest paid actor, and it all came from his paychecks for Captain America: Civil War and The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

It still stands as one of the best films Marvel has made, but that doesn’t mean it’s immune to a skewering from the folks at Honest Trailers. They even take the time for a jab at The Incredible Hulk.
