Another one to really look forward to. The cast list is as impressive as it is exciting, although there are obviously still a few names missing from it. No mention of Peter Parker as yet, but the character will almost certainly be relaunched here, even if Marvel hasn’t actually come out and said it yet.

Most interestingly of all, the return of General Ross, which presumably means Banner will be showing up. :thumbsup:

I was waiting for all of this to come together and get announced. But it wasn't for all the superheroes. I was waiting for Sharon Carter to be announced. I'm so happy Emily is returning to the film. Now let's just hope they give her a good arc with Cap. She's quite integral to the story during the Civil War storyline.

It's just Avengers 2.5 really. The only two missing are Hulk and Thor. I don't think we will see Hulk as he has disappeared and Thor obviously will be in Asgard doing his thing. I just hope it isn't congested and that still the story follows Cap. It is his story. I love Iron Man but much like Wolverine he takes too much spotlight.

Presumably, the civil war erupts when the rest of the team find out about the size of Iron Man's pay packet. :laugh:
 
'Winter Soldier' was my favourite MCU effort to date and I think this will be interestingly done too, although they'll have to straighten out a few plot points for it to really work. The 'Avengers Initiative' thing was the outcome of the 'Civil War' comic book and as we know, they already went there and covered that in the first Avengers movie.
 
I suppose the other worry is that the story could feel a bit underpopulated, what with Marvel not being allowed to make full use of the book's roster of characters. All signs still seem to point to Spider-Man being involved, but the X-Men and the Fantastic Four will be off limits, for obvious reasons.

TWS and GotG have been my fav Marvel movies to far so yeah I have very high expectations for this. After this I'm very much looking forward to Captain Marvel.

If I were Feige, I'd totally kill off Peter Parker. For no other reason than to troll Sony. :rofl:
 
Seriously though, it's 99.9% certain to be exactly who we're expecting, and I think the other aforementioned reveal will happen at the funeral. It'd be the perfect way to bring everything full circle. As for the rest, I can't really see anyone but Steve, Tony, Natasha, Falcon, Bucky and (at a push) Black Panther getting much in the way of significant screentime. I imagine Spidey will be in the movie for about the same amount of time as Vision was in 'AoU'.

Black Widow's hair changes more than Captain America's uniform. Glad they have gone for this style though, way better than what she had in Winter Soldier and Age of Ultron.

So, we have our new Spider-Man at last. Tom Holland has been confirmed to play Peter Parker in the franchise reboot, and as part of the deal between Marvel and Sony, he's expected to debut in 'Civil War' before starring in his own movie, which will be out in July 2017.

Squire Renner has shared some promo images via his Twitter account, and revealed another new costume for Hawkeye. If Ant-Man doesn't take a ride on one of his arrows like in the comics and animated series, we riot! :lullaby:

Also, we can cross at least one big name off the cast list in Mark Ruffalo, who's not now going to be in the movie. Apparently, plans for the Hulk have changed and it’s going to form part of some other future story. I can only assume that Banner was on his way to New York again, but the small motorcycle he was riding ran out of petrol and by the time he pushed it to the nearest garage and got it refilled, the team didn't need him any more. :pinch:

It looks really good. Have to say it broke my heart when Captain says Bucky is his friend and Tony says, "So was I." Really interested to see what happens once this movie ends, like how everyone will respond to each other given what has happened. Looking forward to this.

That was pretty much everything I could have hoped for and more. :chicken:

 

This, really, is the strength of the whole MCU concept. The Iron Man and Captain America movies have fairly adult themes, while things like Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy are more lighthearted. Then there's the Avengers where it's a big, smashy blockbuster, and as an aside, you also have the Netflix stuff which is far grittier. They don't need to go one way or the other, because they cover all bases in different properties.

Confirmed that Martin Freeman will become a recurring MCU character after Civil War. They probably just want him to have a scene with Doctor Strange. :laugh:

 

From what I've been reading about the movie and what's to come in Phase 3, I'm excited about what they're doing with it. The original Civil War comic book had its critics, but this seems to be taking the best plot points from the source material, straightening them out and even improving upon them. I like that the root cause of the conflict this time around will be the Winter Soldier himself.

@Michael*

 

Have you read the actual comic books for this one?

 

If I was to get on Marvel big series I was always told to get this.

 

:ninja:

 

MY DC ass will leave now

@Limerlight Yeah, I think if you were going to try some Marvel stuff, you could do a lot worse than to use 'Civil War' as your starting point. Superheroes fighting each other isn’t a new or interesting thing in itself, but the subject matter is realistic and the political thriller vibe gives the story some real weight. The only drawback is that it doesn't really work as a standalone piece unless you're familiar with the whole cast of characters.
