Captain America: Civil War to start filming next month, plus first synopsis

03.20.2015

Captain America: Civil War Anthony Russo Joe Russo Chris Evans Robert Downey Jr.

Collider has learned that a CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR casting notice for extras has gone out in Atlanta with an April 1st shoot date, which means production on the Marvel movie will begin in less than two weeks. An unofficial synopsis went out with the casting call, however Marvel will probably release an updated one once AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON opens on May 1st.

Following the events of Age of Ultron, the collective governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman activity. This polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers, causing two factions to side with Iron Man or Captain America, which causes an epic battle between former allies.

The new Spider-Man will be introduced in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, so there might be a casting announcement in the near future since filming is set to begin next month. Dylan O'Brien and Logan Lerman have both been rumored to be up for the role, however it's also been rumored that the latest big screen version of the character won't be white.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR is scheduled to hit theaters on May 6, 2016.

I just hope this movie stays focused on Captain America and doesn't oversaturate with Iron Man and the other characters to become Avengers 3.1 or something. I just loved winter soilder because it was a Cap movie above all else.

I'm calling it now, this is gonna be the highest grossing film next year, and in a deserving way, not a Transformers way. I can't wait! This is one of the best storylines/crossover event of all comics. If you haven't read them, go to YouTube and search "Marvel Civil War" there are 7 or 8 parts, all 15-20 minutes each. It will walk you through the entire storyline explaining everything, and showing the artwork for almost all of it! You're welcome :)

I'm of the group that finds Civil War an absolute mockery of a story. It's so disjointed and random and poorly written that you can only root for Cap's side since Tony is written to be such an asshole. The cloned Thor, random deaths and outing of Spidey were shock value then and don't hold up well now at all. But that's me.

Thats so bold of you to predict a Marvel movie featuring almost the entire Avengers cast as the highest grossing film next year. Studios should hire you for box office projections.

By principal, I'd definitely go with Cap. But by actual physical ability, I'd go with Stark. In a real life battle I'd rather be on Iron Man's team than Cap's. But, cap definitely is on the right side here.

In the comic, near the end, iron man hands cap his ass, gives him a pretty brutal beat down, he almost killed him. Explained by stark that he programmed all Caps moves into his computer, so he can't beat iron man. I agree, Cap absolutely had right on his side.

I hope the Winter Soldier storyline isn't shoehorned into Civil War. Whenever I watch CA:WS, the credits roll and all I want is Cap 3! Curious to see if *any* Cap 2 threads are mentioned or covered in Avengers 2.

I'm sure they will absolute address Cap 2, wouldn't be surprised if it was a pretty big part of the movie. Considering we have AntMan in August, then Cap 3 in May, it's much more likely this, and not AntMan is the bridge from Cap 2 to Cap 3. My feeling is AntMan is a stand alone film, with maybe him meeting Stark at the end of the movie. Might even be the end credit scene. Like "Stark walking up to him in a bar type scene, says something snarky, AntMan looks at him for a second then smiles"

If you think about it, a worldwide superhero registration would be a pretty good motivator for having Bucky and Cap finally team up

There's supposed to be hundreds of heroes, so i doubt it will really be a civil war. Also, i was sort of on team Stark. Agreed with everything but his methods. (Thor clone, enlisting super villains, etc)

Team Captain all the way

I'd much prefer Captain over Iron Man. Captain America stands for what America used to stand for. Freedom, self reliance, a government that actually serves and works for the people. Not one that intrudes on everyone's life, dictating them and stealing from them supposedly to "help" or "protect" them. For a government in the Marvel world to make all super humans register and be regulated, is the equivalent of a government in the real world making all gays or muslims or jews or non-whites do

I'm looking forward to this just a bit more than AOU. It's just so damn delicious for us!

Team Cap or Team Stark?!

I can't wait to see the debates in bars, social media, school cafeteria's, corporate stockholder meetings, and check-lines across America...it'll make that Twilight Team [link] look like Pig Shit! Bahahaha!

Dude, with the exception of GOTG, I wouldn't surprised if every character that's been introduced shows up in this movie, including Daredevil.

So they need to find a Spider-Man and fast!!

We will be finding out who is playing Spidey sooner than I thought. We know he will make his debut in this film, even as a side part.

I wonder who they got, it has to be an unknown because in this day and age someone would have posted to twitter some stupid picture of a spider or something with a cryptic text.

This is true. But depending on how big of a part Spidey plays in the movie and when that character appears, they may be able to delay a finalizing casting for another few weeks. I'm guessing we won't hear about it until end of April/beginning of May.

Spidey played a huge role in the comics, Its been a while but I'm pretty sure Spidey switched to caps side by the end, I know the FF were split because of this, Reed was with Stark, I think Sue and Johnny were with cap, I forget what Thing did. It's just a great story all around, obviously it's not going have the same scope the comics did(xmen stayed neutral I believe) because of A: the sheer scope, no way they have hundreds of heroes on screen, and B: the rights to the characters. Getting

Getting Spidey was huge, but no way the get FF OR Xmen. I can live with that though.

With The Avengers spilt, I wonder if we'll meet Dr. Strange in Civil War then he gets his own movie later in the year. Then, at the conclusion of Civil War, Thor returns to Asgard which is eventually destroyed at the end of that movie, then all the Avengers reunite--with the Guardians--in Infinity War Part 2

Team America

I'm team Captain America all the way. After seeing Captain America 2 and watching him stand up to the government, I've become to really like the Cap. I just hope the Hulk gets on Team Captain America or we're doomed. I'm not really a huge fan of the Iron Man movies and thought Avengers was just decent, but I'm really looking forward to Civil War.

If they follow the comics Hulk does not pick a side, they send his ass up in space after deeming him to dangerous for Earth. Chances are that he is the Avengers character that will pop in Guardians of the Galaxy 2...

I haven't seen any of the Captain America movies yet, but I love The Avengers, I'm really excited about this movie, regardless. Captain America never interested me as a character, but I'm glad Marvel is doing a solo movie that isn't quite a solo movie.
