Choose your side. Surely you've seen the posters and ads for the upcoming Marvel film Captain America: Civil War. What gets most people excited about it is that it's the first time we'll see Iron Man and Captain America fighting each other. From what's been shown from the trailer, it looks heartbreaking, thought-provoking, and incredibly divisive.
The Civil War storyline actually originated from the comics, like any good superhero movie, and it was ground-breaking then, too. Bringing in the entire cast of characters they had on one side or another led for some of the most renowned and remembered moments in comic book history. The Civil War name fit incredibly well.
You can imagine the excitement from the fans when it was announced that the third Captain America film would be based on the Civil War. However, with it, there are going to be some notable changes from the comic it came from. After all, with movie rights for characters at three different studios, and only a few dozen Avengers actually in the MCU at the moment, who can blame them? Nonetheless, if the film can strike the same chords that the comic book did, it'll no doubt be one of Hollywood's most remembered movies to date.
Before you see that movie, here are 15 things you need to know about Marvel's Civil War.
15 Superhero Registration Act
14 Hundreds of Heroes
13 Villains Participate, Too
12 All Because of Nobodies
11 Teams Were Divided
10 The Negative Zone
9 Thor is Dead
8 All About Identities
7 Spider-Man's Allegiance
5 Nobody is the Good Guy
4 Captain America Dies
3 Tony Stark Becomes the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.
2 The Aftermath
1 Anyone Could Die
I'm specifically addressing the movie here. Because the movie will be drastically different from the comic, apart from a few key elements, the writers have the freedom to do whatever they want. We know for a fact that somebody is going to die in Civil War, we just don't know who. They want to shake things up for the MCU, and the best way to do that is to kill someone we know and love. It'll feel like you're actually reading a comic. Just keep in mind that anybody in that movie could die. So don't get too attached.
