Released in ComicCon today was some of the most exciting super-hero news in years. The plot of Captain America 3 is as follows:
“The deal is significant for the Marvel cinematic universe considering the plot will pit Stark against Captain America’s alter-ego Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans, as they feud over the Superhero Registration Act, which forces anyone with superhuman abilities to reveal their identities to the U.S. government and agree to act as a police force for the authorities.
“Stark supports the program, but Rogers does not, saying it threatens civil liberties, causing sides to be taken and Rogers, among others, to go on the run to avoid arrest. The moral question and battle with his Avengers teammate essentially makes Stark a villain of sorts in Captain America 3, providing Downey with a meaty role he could play out into future Marvel films, including a fourth Avengers.”
In short, Civil War. Marvel Civil War. I’ve been saying for most of the year that it is possible. Now, apparently, it is happening. And I am about to die.
It should be clarified that RDJ has not officially signed on yet and this is not officially in the works just yet, but it is a very strong probability right now.
I bring the news right now, and I will flesh it out a little more in the next couple days. Truly, only time will tell the majesty of this move.
