Synopsis: An incident leads to the Avengers developing a schism over how to deal with situations, which escalates into an open fight between allies Iron Man and Captain America.
Release Date: May 6, 2016
Thoughts: It’s the beginning of the end of the latest phase of the Avengers Marvel Universe. After two movies where he was clearly top dog, Captain America (Chris Evans, The Iceman) has to contend with the larger than life presence of Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr, The Judge) and some familiar Marvel faces from movies past. While I’m a fan of Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I must admit that I’m getting a little fatigued with these films. With so many other studios jumping on the bandwagon and an oversaturation of Avengers-related entries slated for release over the next several years everything is just starting blur together for me. Focusing on a battle between allies, Captain America: Civil War has a lot riding on it, and hopefully by next summer I’ll be ready for a dose of superhero adventures.
