New Captain America concept art draws up the sides for Marvel's Civil War

08.27.2015

It appears as if the battle lines have been drawn for next summer's Marvel kick-off CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, and now we know who makes up the sides.

In a pair of new concept art renderings that Jeremy Renner was more than happy to circulate via his social media, we're getting a good look as to how our Marvel superheroes will divided up, confirming our earlier scoop about how things might shake out.

On what we can call Team Iron Man, you'll find Tony Stark, alongside Rhodes in his War Machine gear. There's also Black Widow, Black Panther and Vision rounding out the line-up.

For Team Captain America, Steve Rogers leads the charge with The Falcon and his drone Redbird backing him up. The Winter Soldier is a part of the crew, too, with Sharon Carter, Hawkeye and Ant-Man filling out the remainder of the squad. (Hawkeye is going full purple for those of you who have been waiting for the change in gear.)

Renner also threw up a pretty cool poster showing both sides readying for action, so start foaming at the mouth over the throwdowns we're sure to see in the next Marvel Cinematic Universe entry.

CIVIL WAR seems to have been the Marvel movie on everyone's minds since it was announced, rendering this year's AGE OF ULTRON and ANT-MAN almost as afterthoughts as we all looked to the future and thought of what might be. Well, now we're gaining a bit more clarity about what lies ahead for us in less than a year.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR forces us to choose sides ourselves on May 6, 2016.

I just realized that the girl next to Hawkeye is Sharon Carter, not Mockingbird.

Iron Man's team has the big guns and fancy tech. Cap's team has the secret underground tactical smarts though. Captain is so good at planning and ordering, using Ant-Man will for sure help a great deal. What puts Iron Mans team at a disadvantage, is that they are all going to question "is what I am doing, right?"
Caps good heart will break them.
The only thing Cap really needs to worry about is Panther. Vision is a flip flop, he wouldn't hurt a mosquito unless it carried a disease. Cap is

Team Cap

I really hope the focus stays on Cap and this doesn't become another mini Avengers movie with all the characters. I personally want it to stay true to being a Captain America movie. Fingers crossed.

With the Civil War plot line, introducing the Black Panther/ Spidey and still having Cap trying to bring Bucky Back, how is this movie not going to be three hours long. Not complaining at all, going to be a great movie.

Hasn't it been established that Stark's been keeping files on all the heroes to establish their vulnerablilities, "just in case". With that in mind and assuming at least one member of Cap's team is going to get horribly injured or killed, it'll be tough for them to get though this without making Stark seem like a complete dick like he did in the comics after Civil War. This story will be pretty different to the comics, but making Iron Man really unlikable going into future films seems a real

Plenty of chances for his redemption in the Infinity War movies, but I'm still interested to see how they handle his character.

This is Superheroes fighting each other over politics. Literally battling themselves. Not over something entertaining and fun and pulpy. It's over politics. Left vs Right. This is so fucking stupid.

How is this fucking stupid. People fight and kill one another simply because the color of their skin is different. Also, very fucking stupid.

Because it is a superhero movie. The epitome of escapism. The Civil War comics were largely trashed by fans and critics for it's heavy handed political BS. But to have Superheroes ignore the big bad guys (the fun stuff) so that they can settle political debates WWE style is just idiotic.

The politics in this film will ultimately serve the purpose of weakening all the heroes to the point that they're not ready for Thanos at all and then he'll attack and you'll get what you're seeking in terms of entertainment.

Oh there are other characters who aren't shown in the pictures. Scarlet Witch and Spider-Man are both confirmed, I'm guessing they just want to keep it ambiguous which side they end up on.

I'm curious how they address the strengthens for each team. You would think after Age of Ultron, the Vision could easily dispose of the entire Captain America team, but I guess they'll come up with a creative way to have him weakened, power wise. Unless, Scarlet Witch is on Cap's side which would make her a powerful match for Vision.

Yeah, it does seem pretty lopsided, although Age of Ultron was pretty vague in terms of depicting what Vision's powers were. All we pretty much saw him do was fly and shoot a little laser thingy. I don't think his film incarnation will turn out to be nearly as powerful as his comics counterpart.

Plus neither side will likely be looking to kill or seriously injure the other, at least at first.

I'm a little surprised Vision is on Tony's side...but I never did read this story line, so maybe he was on that side, if he was there at all.

Well, I mean considering Vision is pretty much Jarvis, it's really not THAT surprising.

Team 'Murica

This is great. And holy hell (and about damn time) does Hawkeye look great in his purple suit.

Can't wait to see all of this in action. The fight scenes are going to be insane.

marvel hasnt been holding back so far....

Something no one seems to be talking about is the end result of the war. Those who read the comic knows what happen and seeing Caps team makes me wonder. Will they?

I doubt they will. Between Captain America 3 and Infinity Wars, there is not a fourth Cap movie being made. So they'll have it end as a somewhat tidy end. I anticipate that whomever loses will be put into some kind of exile. Honestly, I feel the movie version will flip the story on it's head and have Iron Man lose. He'll be put out of commission until Infinity Wars 2 when the Avengers have to go back to Tony Stark for help in defeating Thanos.

I'm confused who wants what in this film? I'm assuming Tony wants all superheroes to declare themselves and also where does Spidey sit?

You know there's an easy way to fix that, it's called spending two minutes reading the movie's Wikipedia page.

I hope this is just early promo stuff. I'd like to see Scarlet Witch actively on Cap's side and not just in a cameo/prologue type of scene. Hawakeye's new suit is dope. And gotta see Hawakeye shooting Ant-Man off from the tip of one of his arrows.

Having read the comic I know I'm siding with Captain America but Damn would I rather have Iron Man's lineup.
