With Avengers: Age of Ultron already 3 weeks in and dominating the box office spectacularly, the hottest Marvel Cinematic Universe in production now is Captain America: Civil War.
With its title referring to one of the most significant Marvel events in the last few years, fans have not only already assumed the involvement of characters like Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, but also have incredible expectations of this superhero-studded epic.
And Marvel Studios doesn’t plan on disappointing.
With a newly announced cast, it seems that the movie will be as star-studded as the comics were, featuring almost every hero from the Avengers movies (except Hulk and Thor, it seems) it would be easy to assume this as Avengers 2.5.

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.
