Promo art for Captain America: Civil War draws battle lines and reveals teams


Somehow there is no superhero movie scheduled to be released until Deadpool in February 2016 and the legal thriller Superman v Batman: Dawn of Justice in March 2016. The next MCU movie slated is Captain America: Civil War in May 2016, which pits Iron Man against Captain America in an ideological struggle that will split the Avengers (or at least the ones who were contractually available) in two.

New promo art for the film earlier this week reveals who the Iron Man/Cap’n teams will be. 

On Team Iron Man:

  • War Machine
  • Black Widow
  • Vision
  • Black Panther

On Team Captain America:

  • Falcon
  • Winter Soldier
  • Agent 13: Sharon Carter
  • Hawkeye
  • Ant-Man

As other Flixist staffers noted, Scarlet Witch is oddly absent. Given her role in Avengers: Age of Ultron, she may be away searching for an understandable motivation. (Snap.) Also yet to make an appearance: Spider-Man and possibly The Hulk.

Check out the promo art in the gallery.

Feel free to state which side you’re on in the comments. Do you support the prevaricating billionaire playboy whose questionable motives led to the creation of a powerful robot army that almost destroyed the world or the guy who fought Hitler?
