CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Cast Details and Synopsis

Marvel has announced that principal photography has begun on ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ the third installment of its superhero franchise.

The production will shoot on location in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film’s production, as well as locations in Germany, Puerto Rico and Iceland.

‘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.

The film returns Chris Evans (‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’) as the iconic superhero character Steve Rogers/Captain America along with Robert Downey Jr. (‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ ‘Iron Man 3’) as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson (‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Sebastian Stan (‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’) as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie (‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’) as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Paul Bettany (‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ ‘Iron Man 3’) as The Vision, Jeremy Renner (‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ ‘The Avengers’) as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Don Cheadle (‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ ‘Iron Man 3’) as Jim Rhodes/War Machine and Elizabeth Olsen (‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ ‘Godzilla’) as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ also includes outstanding additional cast, including Chadwick Boseman (‘42,’ ‘Get on Up’) as T’Challa/Black Panther, Emily VanCamp (‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ ‘Revenge’) as Sharon Carter/Agent 13, Daniel Brühl (‘Inglourious Basterds,’ ‘Bourne Ultimatum’), Frank Grillo (‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ ‘Warrior’) as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones, William Hurt (‘A History of Violence,’ ‘The Incredible Hulk’) as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross and the recently announced Martin Freeman (‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,’ ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’), who is rumoured to be playing Everett Ross.

After his debut in the upcoming ‘Ant-Man,’ Paul Rudd will make his first appearance alongside the Avengers as Scott Lang/Ant-Man in ‘Captain America: Civil War.’

‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ directors Anthony & Joe Russo are directing the superhero epic from a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
