The collateral damage caused by the Avengers’ past attempts to save the planet leads the world’s governments to demand the UN regulate the team.
Tony Stark agrees to sign the new accord but the Cap refuses, fearing that being kept on a leash will hinder the Avengers’ ability to respond to future threats. When Cap’s old army buddy – now an assassin known as the Winter Soldier – reappears and gains his Avenger pal’s support, a face-off between the Captain and Iron Man looms large.
While technically a Captain America movie, the Avengers ensemble all play a major part here, sans Thor and the Hulk, which leaves room for Ant-Man and a certain young webslinger from Queens. Returning directors Joe and Anthony Russo never lose control of this massive Marvel juggernaut, alternating the hyperactive action scenes with comic relief, and effortlessly introducing Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and the new Spidey (Tom Holland).
A mighty movie whose whole is as awesome as the sum of its parts, Captain America: Civil War sets a new benchmark for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
