Third Captain America film titled Captain America: Civil War

News Helpline | October, 29 2014

It’s no secret that Captain America 3 has been a hot topic among the geek community for weeks now. Multiple publications stated that Robert Downey Jr. would be joining the third installment, and that the story would be based on the 2006 crossover Civil War. In typical Marvel fashion, the House of Ideas stayed mum on the subject, but now they’re done giving us the silent treatment. At today’s Marvel press event, they announced that the third Captain America movie will be called Captain America: Civil War.  

The film, that will co-star Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr., and feature a significant appearance by Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, is set for release May 6, 2016, and will launch the Civil War storyline from the Marvel comicbooks as we reported earlier.

Boseman will play T’Challa and appear in costume as Black Panther for the first time in “Civil War,” Marvel said.

“He will have a big role,” said Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige on Tuesday at a Marvel fan event at Disney’s El Capitan Theater.  

The original Civil War storyline saw the Superhuman Registration Act passed by the U.S. Congress, which required any individual with superhuman or unusual abilities to register with the government and disclose their secret identities. While Tony Stark took the pro-registration side, believing that with proper supervision more good could be done, Cap was anti-registration, believing that it infringed civil liberties. Both teams led their sides in multiple conflicts, and it ended with Cap surrendering himself after he realized the devastation they were causing. Soon after he was killed. While the movie won’t be able to adapt every aspect of the storyline (primarily due to not having the live-action rights to many characters), it looks like Tony Stark and Steve Roger will find themselves on opposite sides when 2016 rolls around.
