Captain America: Civil War is shaping up to be just as big as an Avengers movie, and there’s arguably more at stake, too: the film is going to tear the team apart from within and draw a line in the sand between Chris Evans’ Captain America and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, forcing everyone to take sides in an ideological battle over superhero registration.
So who stands with whom? Potential spoilers ahead, but according to Heroic Hollywood’s sources, the teams are as follows:
Team Iron Man
- Iron Man
- War Machine
- The Vision
- Black Widow
Team Captain America
- Captain America
- The Winter Soldier
- Scarlet Witch
Black Widow choosing Iron Man’s side is the only one I’d call a real surprise there, especially since it puts her in opposition to her longtime buddy Clint Barton. I wonder if her decision has anything to do with what happened to The Hulk at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron? Still, Cap’s team having one extra member seems like it’ll give them an advantage. I haven’t read the comic on which this is based, but I remember hearing about the fallout from it after it hit comic book stores; if the film sticks close enough to the comic, let’s just say some Marvel fans may be wiping away tears by the time the end credits roll.
What do you think about the team breakdown?
