The third installment of the Captain America film series will adapt the popular comic book event Civil War. The film will take place a couple years after the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, following the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Returning directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo will kick off a whole new phase for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Civil War storyline centers around the Superhero Registration Act, which requires anyone with superpowers to identify themselves to the U.S. government and effectively work as a police force for the authorities. The controversial legislation pits Tony Stark against Steve Rogers, with the former supporting the program and the latter arguing it threatens civil liberties. Eventually, Rogers and other superheroes are forced to go on the run to avoid arrest. Effectively, this makes Tony Stark the villain of Captain America 3. Chadwick Boseman will make his big screen debut as the Black Panther in the film.
