The Russo brothers’ blockbuster will return this Sunday on TF1.
In Captain America: Civil War, released in theaters in 2016, the Avengers are divided into two camps, about the implementation of a census law for superheroes. Following the carnage at the end of Age of Ultron, they disagree on what to do next. Tony Stark considers that they must accept the conditions of the government, while Steve Rogers believes that such a law can be dangerous for the men and women who fight in masks in order to protect their loved ones. Black Widow, The Falcon, War Machine, Scarlet Witch, Black Panther, Ant-Man, Spider-Man and all the others are going to have to choose sides.
Captain America Civil War: Team Cap, Team Iron Man… Who defends what?
If it is officially a continuation of Captain america, this episode therefore takes a good part of the Avengers, while opposing two heroes. The situation is reversed, since the group led by Captain America disobeyed the authorities, while that of Iron Man sided with the powerful. The character is therefore very important in the plot, to the point that Robert Downey Jr. declares, to USA Today, a few days before its release: “In a way, Cap 3 is my little Iron Man 4”. The flagship actor of the franchise Avengers confirmed in passing that a new episode of Tony Stark’s solo adventures was not “not in the pipes”. The rest of the saga confirmed his words: Iron Man was at the heart of the intrigues ofAvengers 3 and 4, released in 2018 and 2019 respectively, and he also appeared during a few scenes of Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), as a mentor to Peter Parker (Tom Holland), but he actually didn’t have a solo movie again after Iron man 3, by Shane Black (2013).
