10. Prepare For Civil War!
It had been rumoured when Robert Downey Jr. joined the cast of Captain America 3 that the threequel would adapt Civil War, but when Marvel revealed that the title of the movie was “Serpent Society”, it appeared as if that wasn’t the direction they were taking. However, as it turns out, they were only joking and it will indeed be called Captain America: Civil War! According to Kevin Feige, secret identities won’t play a huge role in this live-action version of the story as it will instead focus more on superheroes being forced to work for the government. This clearly drives a wedge between Captain America and Iron Man just like in the comic books, and it should shape the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forwards. What this means for Bucky (a.k.a. The Winter Soldier) is unclear, but hopefully his story will still get at least some screen time in this release.
