Since Captain America: Civil War is full of superheroes we get you a quick guide to who all are in it and who they are up against!

Captain America (Chris Evans)

Chris Evans plays Captain America, the superhero who abides by his moral values and is the most ethical. His counterpart in the comic book is different than in the movies as it is based more in the past and his equation with Iron man and other Avengers is also not the same. He is not the one to allow any force to control the Avengers and he won’t be alone.

Iron Man / Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr)

Iron Man/ Tony Stark is played by Robert Downey Jr. for the sixth time in Captain America: The Civil War. According to the trailers, Iron Man feels betrayed by Captain America’s actions. The Government wants to take control over the major decisions of the Avengers and Iron Man is willing to allow that. There’s likely to be a fight between Captain America and Iron Man in this movie and they won’t be backing out from this fight

The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan)

We come to know at the end of the second Captain America movie that Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier remembers that he was once Bucky Barnes who was Captain America’s best friend. In Ant Man it is revealed that the Winter Soldier has been found. The presence of Bucky on Captain America’s team creates sharp negative feelings from Iron Man’s team.

The Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson)

Scarlett Johansson has been seen in both Captain America and Iron Man movies and she has always been more close to Captain than Tony. However it surprises everyone that she sides with Iron Man in Civil War. But have her loyalties been distinct before? We will see her caught up and conflicting with her actions in this one.

Falcon (Anthony Mackie)

In the film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson was shown to form a friendship and also a partnership with Captain even before he became Falcon and a member of Avengers in the Age of Ultron. Falcon will soar high with ‘Redwing’ which will be seen as a drone in this movie instead of the actual falcon. He will naturally side with Captain America.

War Machine (Don Cheadle)

James Rhodes was close to Tony for a long time and Don Cheadle wasn’t shown playing Rhodes when he first came in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU) but we will see Cheadle’s War Machine as an established Avenger of Age of Ultron. He will side with Tony and given his military background, he is going to be okay with the Government control over Avengers.

Agent 13 / Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp)

Emily VanCamp was seen for barely a scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. She’s unable to tell Captain that she’s Sharon Carter who is Peggy Carter’s sister, later determined as her niece.  Their relationship isn’t clear in MCU but Captain will get over how Agent 13 spied on him for Nick Fury by pretending to be his neighbour. When she was last seen, Agent 13 was giving an interview with the CIA for a position but in Civil War she is along with Captain quite openly.

Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman)

Chadwick Boseman will be shown playing Black Panther as T’Challa in Civil War, before he begins his journey separately in his own Black Panther movie. He has a grudge against The Winter Soldier and if Black Panther is drawn on the same line as his comic book counter-part then he’ll be having his own agendas which will be absolutely different from both Iron Man and Captain America.

Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner)

Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton was shown retiring from action but he answers call to Captain America and sides with him, but he also goes against Black Widow his closest friend.

Vision (Paul Bettany)

If anyone saw this folly of Captain and Iron Man it could definitely be Paul Bettany’s Vision, the Android hero. Yet he is shown to side with Iron Man here. He hasn’t created his full identity and could be a wildcard in this battle.

Scarlett Witch (Elizabeth Olsen)

She isn’t 100% loyal to either Tony nor Captain. So she may side with anyone but Tony made weapons that had killed her parents so chances are that she may side with Captain. Her mental state is questionable too so one can’t say for sure whose team she’ll join.

Spider-Man (Tom Holland)

For the very first time Spider-Man will be shown joining the other Marvel  Heroes on the screen. His part will also be more than it was actually visualized. Tom Holland’s Peter Parker may or may not appreciate Tony ‘s nickname for his alter-ego but we will see what happens.

Ant-Man (Paul Rudd)

Falcon happens to know a guy who isn’t a part of Avengers and can help Captain. Barely after a year of debut in MCU, Ant-Man will be played in this film by Paul Rudd. He is delighted to play a superhero but will Scott Lang a.k.a Ant-Man be as happy after the events of Civil War.

Crossbones (Frank Grillo)

Frank Grillo’s Brock Rumlow had survived the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D in the Winter Soldier, and he’s like his comic book counter-part of the Super Villian identity. Crossbones is coming as an enemy of the Avengers. If the movie follows the footsteps of the comics then he may have a terrific part in the conclusion.
