The next installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is set to blast into theaters on May 6, 2016 and stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Paul Rudd.
Synopsis: Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May.
Captain America: The First Avenger was a solid hit with fans and wound up making $370.6 million worldwide. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is widely considered one of the three best Marvel Cinematic Universe movies to date and wound up making $714.4 million worldwide. With the addition of Robert Downey Jr and so many other actors / characters, Civil War is likely to make Avengers type money at the box office.
