Captain America: Civil War (also known as Captain America 3) is an American superhero film, based on the Marvel Comics character Captain America. The film is a sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It was produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

Marvel officially confirmed the film on April 7, 2014, after a three-hundred million dollar gross in the opening weekend box office for The Winter Soldier.[1] The Russo Brothers returned for the third installment as directors alongside writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.[2]


Following the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron, the collective governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman activity. This riot polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers, causing two factions to side with Iron Man or Captain America, which causes an epic battle between former allies.


The film opens in December, 1991, at a HYDRA base in Russia, where agents are running the Winter Soldier program. They awaken Bucky Barnes, one of the participants and Steve Rogers' best friend from World War II. He is subject to excruciating torture as the agents recondition his brain by reciting trigger words from a HYDRA journal until he is under their control. They send him on an extraction mission to recover a case of super soldier serum from the back of a vehicle.

In the present day, one year after the battle of Sokovia, the Avengers are on a mission in Lagos, facing off against Brock Rumlow and a team of mercenaries, who break into a lab to steal a biological weapon. After a fight, Rumlow taunts Steve that Bucky remembered him, and detonates a bomb strapped to his body. Wanda Maximoff contains the explosion and inadvertently releases it into a nearby building. She looks at the destruction in terror, and Steve calls for assistance.

At MIT, Tony Stark is giving a presentation to students, showing them a projection of the last time he saw his parents before their deaths. Downstairs, a woman confronts Tony after the presentation, telling him that her son was killed in Sokovia during one of the Avengers' battles, leaving Tony with intense guilt.

Steve and Wanda are watching news footage criticizing the Avengers when the Vision announces that Tony has arrived, bringing with him the Secretary of State, Thaddeus Ross. Secretary Ross presents the Avengers with the Sokovia Accords, legislation signed by 117 nations that would subject the Avengers to oversight from a United Nations panel, in response to previous incidents involving the team that resulted in mass destruction. The team is divided on the terms and break into debate. Steve receives a text informing him that Peggy Carter has died.

International premieres


  • The containment unit that Bucky is held in is number "D23", which is the name of the Disney Fan Club.
  • Bucky loses his arm in this film, which happens in almost all of Marvel's Phase Two films as their homage to The Empire Strikes Back, including a tactic during the airport battle where Spider-Man, Iron Man and War Machine take down Ant-Man.
  • This is the highest grossing film of the entire Captain America trilogy.
  • Bruce Banner/Hulk was originally going to appear in the end credits scene but was cut out as they ultimately felt it was too much of a spoiler for Thor: Ragnarok, although he was technically in the movie as in a scene when Thunderbolt Ross was showing footage from the Battle of New York, Hulk was jumping from building to building causing debris to fall and hit people.
  • This is the last Marvel Cinematic Universe film to have an individual Blu-ray release and a Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/Digital HD combo pack. Starting with Doctor Strange, all future Marvel Cinematic Universe films will have Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD combo packs and Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD combo packs.
  • In Spider-Man: Homecoming, some parts during the airport scene in Captain America: Civil War were seen in Peter Parker/Spider-Man's blog.
  • In Spider-Man: Far From Home. Quentin Beck is seen at the backstage as Tony Stark delivers his speech for the September Foundation and introduction of BARF.
