Captain America: Civil War Cast Revealed
The third installment in Marvel's live-action Captain America franchise won't be released for another year -- May 6th, 2016 to be exact -- but we know who will be appearing in it.
To say Captain America: Civil War has a "good" cast is an understatement. The upcoming film will bring back all of our favorite superheroes from the Marvel universe while introducing several new ones as well. See below for a complete list of the known cast members, according to Marvel and Disney:
- Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America
- Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man
- Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow
- Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (yep, he's back again)
- Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon
- Paul Bettany as The Vision
- Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye
- Don Cheadle as Jim Rhodes/War Machine
- Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch
- Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man
- Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther
- Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter/Agent 13
- Daniel Brühl as Baron Helmut Zemo (note: this is currently a rumor and was not confirmed in the official press release)
- Frank Grillo as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones
- William Hurt as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross
- Martin Freeman as Everett K. Rosn
As you can see, that's an all-star cast, more so than probably any other Marvel movie to date. Civil War will even introduce Paul Rudd as Ant Man for the first time, whom we'll later in the self-titled movie of the same name that's expected to hit theaters on July 17, 2015.
So, what's the plot going to be for Captain America: Civil War? It's still too early to make any definitive statements, and even if we knew we probably wouldn't say, but Marvel and Disney released the first official synopsis for the upcoming superhero-packed film:
"Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain."
