US Release Date: 1st May
The next release in Marvel's line up is Captain America 3: Civil War. But with the comic storyline spanning a massive universe, will the single film do the story justice?
For those unfamiliar with the Civil War saga, it tells of a tragic story of division, fascism, moral conscience and liberty. And in this grand tale, we see the US government try to usher in a superhero registration act, an act that dictates that all people with powers, must register their abilities and true identity. On top of that, our super-powered folk are also to submit themselves to the government for official training. Very much in the same vein of a person wanting to become a marshall or police officer, they would have to join an official force and train with guidelines. Rules and regulations are to be set within a constituted charter, laying out what will be permissible in the upholding of the law and the pursuit of justice, as the days of doing whatever the hell you want, in the pursuit of a criminal, are about to come to a end.
"The only way they could really do the story justice, is to have three films, followed by The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. becoming the actual TV adaptation...this spanning 5 seasons!"
Lo and behold this intended act causes turmoil and a growing rift in the super powered world. Secret identities are secret for a reason and exposing the capabilities and weakness of their powers is strategically, not in their best interest. Eventually those who are against the sanctioning of this act and those in agreement, face off against each other - a massive battle ensues amongst them hence the title Civil War.
Team partnerships are split. Long standing friendships are destroyed, as heroes and villains choose sides and make some of the most unlikely alliances. Those who for the longest time called each other enemy are now depending on each other to survive. The leader, for those against the superhero registration act is Captain America and his sparring partner leading the fight for people for registration is Iron Man.
